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 🙂

Most of my fences are up.  My dogs are well behaved most of the time.

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!.
