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 […]

Greedy People Suck

I spent most of the morning fuming about this and now I’m just sad at how people act anymore. A little background so this makes some sense. Once upon a time when my FIL ran the farm he raised 40 acres of corn to feed as silage to the cows. To hold this he put […]

We’ve gone ahead and started giving the cows some corn silage in the evenings to supplement their declining pasture.

So I go over to check the buns this morning and out of the corner of my eye I catch some white fur in the hay feeder. Oh, no, I thought. Nest building. Then I thought I saw it move. No way – too early for kits. They’re born hairless anyway. And then I realized… […]

The Colony is Up!

by @ Sunday, September 25th, 2011. Filed under Rabbits

The 5th of September all the bunnies got to become one big happy bunny family. Time was running out fast for me to get them into the colony with time to adjust before the little bunnies started to come. Over the last few days I’ve manages to sneak a few minutes here and there to […]
