Meet Edison!

When Hope and Peasant were transported here, so was Edison! Meet the latest edition to our herd! Edison is a black tort English Angora buck, with the cutest face ever. He has nice long wool with a dark little face. He is very handsome. I have actually had him for a couple months now (I’ve…

Welcome to Puppy City!

Puppy City? Where’s that? Puppy City is currently in our house, my room to be specific. Zoe had another litter of sweet, cute, adorable, noisy, little puppies! Zoesaphine had a litter of eight! Six boys and two girls, one Blenheim, four livers, and three tricolours. The girls are Blenheim and tri in colour. It was…

Bunnies and Kitties Will Forever Multiply…

What I mean by that title, is that bunnies and kitties are prolific! It’s a good thing, but man is it ever a lot of work. Lavender had a litter of bunnies yesterday, I haven’t counted them yet, as I like to disturb them as little as possible for the first bit. In a few…

Tango’s bunnies Update!

The bunnies are growing really, really quickly, and their wool is really coming in! They are friendly and sweet, and love people. They really are true angoras as far as personality goes: gentle, calm, sweet, loving, and all the rest. I love them so much! Here are some pictures, and their names! Smokey is up…

Two New Icelandics!

Ever since I got Lily, I had been instantly in love. After meeting her, I came to the conclusion that I really wanted to breed Icelandics. The search for a ram began. Lily’s breeder said that she would have some un-related rams in the spring. Daddy messaged her (near the end of June, so we…

The Latest Trail Ride!

We have been riding Bonnie and Massey every day for the last three days, and after the tropical storm passes by, we would like to continue. (Unfortunately we do not have pictures of the actual events.) We went out to the pasture, brushed down Massey and Bonnie, and picked out their hooves. Bonnie’s hooves looked…

Milking an angus!

Yup, as the tittle says, we tried milking an angus, which is a meat breed of cow. This was her first lactation, and we were the first to milk her. We have a low line angus named Gracie, she had a calf that didn’t make it. We didn’t want her to dry up, as Dexter…

More bunnies!

June 1st was a day of many bunnies! I bred Lilac, Lavender, and Tango on May 1st, and they all decided to all have bunnies on the same day, which was June 1st! Lilac and Lavender had a huge shelf of a hutch each, so they had all kinds of room to get them and…

Vera’s Puppies!

Vera had a litter of puppies! It was in May. She had two Blenheim, one tricolour, two ruby coloured, and one black and tan! Meet the puppies: Trixie is first! We decided to call her Trixie after one of Zoe’s first puppies. She looks just like Zoe’s Trixie, with her little brown lip! Trixie is…

Tango had bunnies!!

Tango had a litter of baby angoras on June 1st, I was so overjoyed. Einstein has become a Father! Tango made her nest really well, and the bunnies were born in the nesting box, which was very good. We moved her from the all-wire hutch to one of Daddy’s chicken brooders just in case any…

Amethyst and Pepper

One of my favourite colours -if not my favourite – that Flemish Giants can be is the Light Grey. That’s what Jasper is. The only problem is, I can’t breed for those! I bought another bunny. Now I can breed for the colour, for she is a light grey! She is maybe twelve weeks old…

Ann’s kids!

One day last week, we were doing chores and Dexter said “Ann had babies!”. I didn’t believe him, for he had been crying wolf for the last few weeks. “Uhh huh.” I said. “No! Seriously! She did!” He replied insistently. “Yeah, sure.” “No! She did, come here! She had twins!” I rolled my eyes long…

Breeze’s Kittens!

About two weeks after Saffron had kittens, Breeze was no longer pregnant, I came to the conclusion that she had kittens! They were not found for the longest time, but one day, we finally did. Walking into the horse stall area, a panick seized me. Where were my leads??! I had left my purple on…

Patience, Satine, and kids out on grass!

We got Patience, Satine, Two Fry, Fanty, and Mingo outside! Last year we set up a six strand electric fenced in pasture. Patience and Satine are probably our most troublesome goats in the case of keeping them in a fence – they usually jump. Satine is a hit and miss, sometimes she jumps, sometimes she…

Jumping Zoe!

Over the last few months I have been training Zoe to jump. Why? I’ve done so because it is fun, it’s time we get to spend together, and it’s something that we can both learn. It has been really fun so far, and Zoe is able to jump pretty well now – especially when there…

Get out of my barn!

We put up an electric net for the goats and Faith, and put some of them outside. They have really enjoyed being out there! We set the net up around our garden, we are going to let them eat it right down so that there will be less grass, and thus it will be easier…

Corona’s Kittens!

Corona had kittens, and the kittens have stolen our hearts! Saffron is sulking in the corner, her kittens are no longer the most exciting thing in the house, which means they get less attention, and through that, Saffron gets less attention too. Saffron is very upset with Corona, “My own flesh and blood, my own…

We trimmed our horse’s hooves!!

On May 12th, we trimmed our horse’s hooves! This is the first time, and we have been doing lots of research. We didn’t take any pictures of the process, maybe next time we can! We did Bonnie hooves first, I picked them out, attempted to use the nippers, but then got nervous and handed them…

Happy Birthday, Jasper!

Today is Jasper’s birthday, say “Hello!” to our birthday bunny! Jasper has been with us for a long time, and he is such a sweet bunny, he has given us so much joy. He is so wonderful, and is so kind and friendly. He loves pets and cuddles, and he comforts us when we are…

Little Red’s Calf

Little Red had a calf! Coming out to do chores in the morning, the news was proclaimed throughout the barn. The calf was in with the other cows by Red’s side when I saw her, she was so small and black. We decided to move Red and her calf into a cleaner pen so they…
