What will be happening on the Homestead for the Autumn season, or at least until Samhain gets here near the beginning of November. This is my favorite time of year! Enjoy! Amy
I got up early to beat the heat and sort the sheep for breeding to start! There's a surprise in the barnyard as well as chick updates. Enjoy! Amy
This plant, Tansy Ragwort, is going crazy! I see it in Pastures with livestock and I can't understand why it's left there. This plant kills all livestock, except sheep. There's nothing more heartbreaking than having to put a horse down from tansy poisoning. PLEASE, IF YOU SEE IT IN YOUR FIELDS OR IN THE DITCHES ALONG YOUR PROPERTY, PULL IT AND DESTROY IT!!
This week was a bit chaotic with losing water and having some hot weather come through. Shane's work schedule changed so now we have to be quiet until about noon, changing some of our routines too. We did squeeze in some time at the river though! Enjoy! Amy
I said Independence Day (week) because in our little home town, the rodeo kicks off the weekend before the 4th with a party and then the rodeo itself goes for 4 days. Fireworks are for sale in town for a solid 2 weeks before the big day too. Here on the farm, things are much more laid back. Enjoy! Amy
