Well we didn’t get off to a very good start with our babydolls this year. It has been one of those rough farming years. Seems like if it could go wrong then it did, but we won’t let that stop us and have bigger and better plans for next year!
Our youngest has decided to start her own pig farm – guinea pigs that is!!! She takes in rescue and unwanted pigs. She also has plans to start showing them.
We have also started experiencing the wonderful world of essential oils! Oh My!! I wish we had of started them sooner! If you want to know what I’m talking about or want to join in then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We use DoTerra oils.
Hard to believe it is already the second month in the new year!!!
We are so excited about 2017 as we have a lot going on and planned for. We will start lambing around March and can’t wait for those little lambs to hit the ground running.
Our girls are getting geared up for the new show season and just waiting on lambs to get here so they can officially start planning shows.
We have also added a new partner to our Rabbitry so that we can offer a bigger variety of rabbits. We specialize in rare breed show bunnies. Currently we have Holland Lops, Thriantas, Tans, Czech Frosty, Dwarf Hotots and English Lops.
Sorry that I dropped the ball on you! We are once again getting ready for fair. We have had a lot happen this year and still not done!
The kids showed this spring and summer and done a great job!
We will have our county fair week after next and plan to show sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, and geese. Then we will be headed to District fair and have a small break then off to State. Wish them luck!
We plan on adding several babydoll ewes to the herd. The market ewes are off at the breeders now. Hoping to have quite a few baby lambs around the first of the year.
Hopefully I can start making a habit of posting here again.
We are getting busy busy busy with the fair being this week. The kids will be showing rabbits, chickens, sheep, goats and several of their crafts. Their big day is Thursday when they show all their animals. Lots of good luck to them. It takes a lot of hard work, time and money to get the animals ready. Whatever they place I want the kids to know that they did their best and showed that animal to the best of their ability. In the end its one person’s opinion that decides placing, it doesn’t mean that the next person won’t like it better or worse. It’s important to understand sportsmanship when showing.
We are also working out plans and arrangements to have a Babydoll ram join the farm. So hopefully we can add more ewes later on. Then at the end of October we will have a hampshire boar joining our hampshire girls. We can’t wait to see what the offspring will look like.
Not happy with your life? Then change it! If you are living to please everyone else then you will never be satisfied with life or be happy with yourself. You must decide what you want out of life and go for it. I know from experience that it is easier said then done. I used to feel guilty about putting myself first then I learned for my sanity that there are times that I must put myself first. No one else was stepping into play to put me first and the reason is because that was my job. I’m not saying make everything about you but what I am saying is make sure you are not left out.
You are the one that controls your happiness! Don’t be a doormat!
Well I made my first attempt at pickling quail eggs a couple of months ago and we finally decided to open a jar and check them out.
The overall vote at 100% was they were delicious! They were on the sweet side so next time I will add in a jalapeno. I had never even tried any pickled eggs in the past and for sure never canned them, so I was very happy with outcome. We had to do something with all the extra quail eggs that we have around here.
We had a family reunion today and so I decided to do something a little different. I had lots of extra quail eggs since I have shut the incubator down for a while so I decided on Deviled Quail Eggs. The hardest part of making them is getting the shell of the eggs and after that its super easy. You get an awesome reaction out of adults and children.
