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.

Isaac, Will You Be A Drought Breaker For Missouri?
We have had less than an inch of rain since mid June. A good soaker might green things up a little bit...and maybe wash off some really dirty sheep. Maybe even brighten the spirits of some very worried farmers--both big and small.
For now we are just waiting, although there is a tiny thread of excitement and hope in conversations. I'm not sorry to see this distressful month of August go, and hope the door doesn't hit her on the fanny on the way out!
You can't really see it well, but there is a full ring around the moon--a good sign of rain as it signifies moisture in the atmosphere.
