This is one of my favourite photo's. The year my daughter fostered 2 coon babies. My husband brought 12 round bales of straw from a barn across the road we were renting, and caought in the netwrap were 3 baby coons. We had to destroy one, the nylon had grown into their bodies somewhat, and was actually grown around it some. It took alot of TLC to get them healed and on their way. They were only 10 days old when we got them. Their eyes and ears were still closed.
Here they are quite abit bigger. They really didn't like Marbles, our cat. This was a few years ago, these pictures, and Marbles had to be put down this past spring. That was quite sad.
King of the hill. The calves love to get up on a pile of something, so my husband makes them a pile of dirt in the field, lol.
My home. Built in 1846, from stone quarried from the back of the farm. Our kids are the 8th generation... and our grands are the 9th!!
I take over now
A few days later, we did the broilers. Did 5 a day for 3 days. Nice to have your own chicken!!
A week ago, we showed this heifer in the carcass class at the Outdoor Farm Show. They were shown live, and then killed at the packers who bought them, then judged. She was 17 months old and dressed 834 lbs. We wanted to keep her as a replacement, but her pelvis was too narrow. She had a full sister who met the same fate because of the same thing. We also just shipped out Babydoll her mother. She was 16 years old. She was a char x limo. We AI'd her to a char bull. This was her first white heifer! The other heifer was cream. All her bulls were white!
I have two bee hives, and we get lots of honey!!
