Another Kid On The Block!

God blessed us with 2 more goat kids this weekend when Lilly, our newest nanny gave birth to two doelings (females) to add to our flock. Eventually, we’re hopeful these new does will bless us with fresh milk and goat kids of their own. Over the past 7-8 years, we’ve been blessed with hundreds of […]

Cutting Down A Dead Oak Tree On Glorious Acres

So today we were blessed to have our friend Jimmy bring his lumberjack tools and help us cut a dead oak tree down on our Florida homestead. The tree was struck by lightning during a storm a few years back and it had become quite the widow maker on our property, so the chainsaws had […]

Meet Valerie, Our Holstien Cow

Once a day, every single day for the past 5 months, we have been milking our beautiful Holstein cow named Valerie. Earlier this year, she had the cutest little calf but she wasn’t a very good mom and didn’t keep him clean so he got fly strike and was not doing well. He quit nursing […]

fly strike treatment

Calf Killing Fly Strike – SOLVED?

The Lord blessed us with our first calf last week, but the blessing came somewhat disguised. Let me digress… Our Holstein-Angus cow gave birth to her first calf last Wednesday, and being the rebel she is, she didn’t do a good job cleaning him up resulting in a massive Fly Strike attack that quickly spread […]

Ester The God Forsaken Goat

Goodbye Ester! You Won’t Be Missed…

Earlier today, Elizabeth, the girls and I said goodbye to one of our goat nannies named Ester. She was given to us by a local herbalist who was having trouble keeping her goats on her property as they kept ravaging her neighbors’ gardens which led to a police citation. When we first met Ester (then […]
