A Bit Better Day

by @ Tuesday, March 15th, 2011. Filed under Cows, Farm Life, Kids

As expected, the beef calf didn’t make it. On the up side, we did find the dairy heifer. She had been stolen, just by another dry cow who hid her somewhere in the field. Mama and baby are safe in the barn so we can’t lose her again. Yesterday was a day full of running […]

Buckwheat Festival

by @ Friday, September 30th, 2011. Filed under Kids

We made it to the Buckwheat Festival last night. What I expected to be a quick trip to the store ended up taking all afternoon. So we dropped Sami off at my parent’s on the way home, threw the groceries in the house and hustled through milking. With Ern’s crohn’s disease he has to be […]

Christmas went pretty well this year. It was the second Christmas for Ern without his dad, so he got a little melancholy but on the whole dealt well. My brother and his family came to visit last weekend, so Sami got her first Christmas with them. It didn’t take her long to get the idea […]

Ducks Are Not Like Chickens

by @ Wednesday, May 28th, 2014. Filed under Dogs, Ducks, Kids

That seems like a no-brainer right? And yet it still came as a surprise to me. Allow me to backtrack. Once upon a time (October 3, 2012 to be exact) I bought a trio of Khaki Campbell ducks. They grew up through the winter, and at one point one of the hens disappeared, leaving me […]

New Baby

The four of us as our new family. 🙂

Riding the Range

by @ Thursday, August 16th, 2012. Filed under Horses, Kids

In most ways Sami takes after Ern. I joke that I KNOW she’s his but I’m not sure she’s mine. But like her mama she is nuts for the horses. Before this she’s ridden her pony with someone leading her and has ridden Boniface double with me. But she has done really well lately with […]

Sami’s First Fair

by @ Friday, August 19th, 2011. Filed under Kids

Once again I started this one and didn’t get it posted. The fair was the end of July. Fair season is starting up. Friday night we took Sami out to the Triune-Halleck fire hall. They have a small fair to benefit the VFD every year. It’s nothing too big or exciting, but it’s still fun […]

Sami’s Ride

by @ Thursday, August 30th, 2012. Filed under Horses, Kids

I’m so proud of my girl. She fell off a horse and got right back on. Literally. Our neighbor has three kids. Her oldest two started back to school last week so with just Sami and her youngest I have enough horses for us to go out riding. She and her son rode Jim while […]

Speaking of Fairs

by @ Friday, August 19th, 2011. Filed under Kids

Last Saturday we went to the Mon county fair. I have to say, I really expected more. I’m not sure why -I don’t think there’s a less rural county than Mon in all of WV. But still, when this is your entire livestock area? Still, Sami got to see the pigs and she petted a […]

WVU Farm Family Day

by @ Saturday, December 3rd, 2011. Filed under Kids

Back in October we took Sami to the WVU Farm for their open house / family day. There was actually a pretty big turnout. It was windy as anything but otherwise a pretty nice day. I went ahead and took my big camera hoping for some cute pictures. I’m way out of practice and don’t […]
