Here is some of the action we see daily on the farm

Our Alpine goat Hollyhock is very friendly and curious. It would take 2 people to take a proper picture of here, one to take the picture and one to distract and amuse her. She seems to know that you are trying to get her to pose for the camera!

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

You know what they say, it's always best to let sleeping dogs lie.
Daisy is so tuned in to farm life. We can walk right up to her and she never stirs. Let a strange person or animal come onto the property and that's different story. You may be sitting right beside her in the hammock and suddenly she will erupt out of a sound sleep and gallop across the yard to investigate something that is cause for her concern. She still spends a portion of her time chasing chickens, and occasionally carrying one around in her mouth, but all critters on our farm are safe from predation.

Baby Stuff

Last weekend Karol and I finished the staining and sealing the crib. It's the same crib that Tim and then Andy used.

The little pink bassinette is the perfect size for newborn Holly. The top bassinette part can be removed so that later it can be a travel crib when she's older.
There is also a stroller/car seat travel system, and bag after bag of baby clothes.!
