Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

New Chicken Perch
Out doing chores the other morning, I happened to glance up and see this. Of course I didn't have my camera with me, but I thought it was worth trying to dash to the house and back to capture it. I managed to snap one distant picture before Blue started to walk away, but I was able to 'enlarge' it enough to get a decent showing. (Gotta love digital cameras!) It's not the greatest quality, but it tickles my funny bone. You have to know Blue, to really appreciate this. He is a seven year old Merino ram. An old man. A very crotchety and cranky old man. He seemed unperturbed by his passenger, and the hen was evidently enjoying her foot massage therapy on her wool cushioned, lanolin coated perch.
