I seriously cannot believe that it is only a couple months and a couple weeks away from the end of the year. Winter is creeping up on us and the days are about to shorten. We have been trying to prepare our best for the cows, chickens and ourselves as winter is approaching. Thankfully we will not have to winterize the pig operation as we will have processed all the pigs by the years end. It will be nice to scale back for the winter months and spend quality time with Willow, my precious independent little angel.

Every day I partake in a waltz with Nature. Throughout this day long dance, you will see different styles of dance, like when I slip in a puddle of mud, I do the Twist or when I jump over the hot wire, I do the electric slide. If you drive by during the middle of the day, you may see me dancing salsa in the pasture. But I can tell you this, if you see me flailing around and it looks like some eclectic dance, just know it’s probably hornets chasing and trying to sting me. I like to call my dance, Movin’ and Shakin’. It’s the only way to dance when you live on a production style farm.

Hey y’all! We hope everyone made it safely through the storm this past weekend. We had steady rains but not major damage. Its been sad around here the past few days as we lost one of our momma’s on Saturday during the storm. When we moved the cows to the new pasture, this cow slipped going into the trailer and injured herself. It didn't seem like a fracture because she was able to get up after but didn’t stay up long. We were tending to her over the past week but the storm did her in. We gave her a respectful composting burial.
