A couple in their 60's, a 1940's army building turned into a 3 bedroom cottage, 2.5 acres, vegetable and herbal gardens, goats, chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, Great Pyrenees, rescue dogs and cats, living as simple and frugal as possible. That is what you will find written about here. Thank you for stopping by. Share anything you like and ask any questions you wish!
Buttons had twin bucklings this morning. Mom and babies are doing great. Tarragon (because he is already a terror) and Nettles (don't touch me!) act more like 3 or 4 days old kids instead of a few hours old. They are nursing great, running, hiding from mom and not answering her cries, chasing a rooster, just things newborn kids don't usually do. They are such fun to watch. Basil (Lil Vicki's baby) is doing some better. She is starting to be a mommy to him but now he doesn't want her. Yesterday he nursed easy but today not so well. I spend time every couple hours trying to get him to nurse. He is one stubborn little buckling. Kidding season is over this year and we ended up with 4 boys and 1 girl. The girl (Rosemary) will become part of our dairy herd and the boys will be sold at 3 months of age.... no matter how attached I am! LOL
