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.

Caution...Mowers Ahead...

...Stay back 100 foot!


Mowing crew break time....


Paycheck line...

The sheep are working hard at keeping the grass down. Even the hard to get to places like the above little corner in the yard. They were pretty nervous though about the tight quarters and the Boone-dork giving them the eye. I've been waiting to turn them on fresh grass until about 7 at night because it's just so hot right now. So far I've only had to mow the front paddocks twice this summer and that was just to trim down the few scraggly weeds. Good job sheep crew!

Don't forget to leave a comment here if you want to be entered in the Cat Calendar contest--it ends at midnight on August 4th!

Those are the cutest mowers we've ever seen! Wish we had a mower like that to watch!

Will work for food must be the motto of your crew!

I could use some mowers like that this summer. It's very unusual for the yard to still be this green.

You asked about the trail that I was on. That is a walking trail in the town that I live in. I have found, since I retired, that the town is full of them, all kept very tidy by a volunteer organization run specifically for that purpose.

Wow, your mowers look like they are in good shape and get the work done pronto!

How cute!

My Mob has been working on the pasture, too. With all the rains we've been having, weeds and grass is growing fast. Too bad they don't eat more weeds, though. ;)
