Conversing with Mother Nature

ANOTHER snow system? Goodie. Look Mother Nature, out here at the ranch, we need running water in all the barns, so please keep the temperature above 35. Otherwise I have to haul water buckets to four different pens. Do you know how much water weights? Yes, of course you do. Sorry, I wasn't thinking. Well, …

The things we do for our critters

Being snowed in isn't so bad. That is IF you have enough supplies. At our place that means hay for our critters. Good news/bad news: today is the last day of our hay. Guess I'll be venturing out tomorrow or later this afternoon. With that being said, it's been wonderful just hanging out with everyone. …

Merry Christmas, Everyone

Merry Christmas, Everyone. What a perfect morning. Husband is still sleeping. Poor baby came down with the flu a couple of days ago so we've postponed our family Christmas until he feels better. Two of the dogs are playing next to my desk. Lilly and Meister are almost non-stop playing machines. They'll play a while …

Been settling dog issues lately.

Everyone seems to be getting along nicely. The newbies are learning the 'house' rules. Watching them learn from each other is fun. They do catch on fast. Love crate training, everything good happens in their crates (feeding, forever treats, peace and quiet). They're not in their crates for long times. Just when I'm off the …

More milk is accumulating in GraNann’s freezer

Production will begin as soon as all the babies have landed, so to speak. We have one more doe in baby watch. As soon as her babies decide to join the Sleeping Dog Ranch herd, we're off and running into soap and lotion production. In the meantime, I've been focusing on getting the barn clean …

Minding the Garden Muses

I've tried. I've REALLY tried. Honestly, I tried. But I can't help myself. The Garden Muses own me. They tug at me unceremoniously until they get what they want. This year they're making me improve our chicken yard. Since it's in our front yard having a welcoming area makes sense. Well, it's actually a chicken …
