I am delighted to say that I think I am officially a farm!! To date we have:
5 Dogs, 2 Cats and 13 kittens
3 (for now) Rabbits
and as of this week. . .
I got Llamas because they are edible (so they say-I haven’t tried them yet), cheap to purchase (50 dollars each), and you can graze 4 on the same place you would graze 1 cow (but they give 1/6 the meat). My son wants to teach them to pull him on a sled and to be pack animals so he can get them to carry his pack when hiking 🙂
I am loving life.
Most of my fences are up. My dogs are well behaved most of the time.
My cows get along with my Llamas.
My bummer lambs are thriving. Our goats milk taste yummy so what do I have to complain about?
Who cares that my siding isn’t on yet, that I can expect tonnes (literally) of mud to be tracked into my house for the next month, that only 1/3 of my trees survived the winter, that my toilet overflows every day and we can’t seem to fix it ect. . . For now, for this moment, I am going to relish the little things and magic of being a farmer.
I just love working outside and visiting my animals. The Lord has sure blessed this little piece of heaven!.
