From the Barnyard

Happy Leap Day!


Addie told me the worst part about leap year is, “You have to wait a whole ‘nother day till rodeo season starts!”

Oh man! The struggle is real!

But this baby goat is not bothered!

He is going to leap -

And dance -

And prance to his heart’s content!

The cats aren’t too sure what to make of this dancing hay eater.

But this momma goat knows just how to keep him safe. If you’re interested in a cute little goat, give me a call. We have several for sale.

Thanks for swinging by the barnyard. I am getting several updates done to my web page today and tomorrow (weather and technology) willing.

I hope to hear from you soon!

Mama’s a One-Hit-Wonder

February 9, 2016

I posted this short clip of my bull, Tooth Fairy, throwing a tantrum the other day on the rodeo Facebook page. Just for fun.

And like BOOM! People loved it! I have never had a post go so big! Look at the reach - almost 600,000 as of today!

And only a week after posting this video has been seen by a quarter million people!

I am getting comments in different languages!

Some people like Blue had a fabulous sense of humor and made me choke on my coffee, laughing in the morning.

Many people like Yellow know Dick and know this is pretty mild behavior from his bulls.

And lots of people like Pink just wondered why the bull is behaving this way.

Then there are the “experts.” Like Navy boy and Red here.

They know more about my bull’s breeding than I do, apparently.

Considering I know which bull jumped the fence and bred the neighbor’s black cow, so that to keep peace we bought her heifer calf (for some reason black calf producers don’t care for spots!) And then I know what bull I bred the half angus heifer to and thus my bull...

But, hey, go ahead Red, tell me I’m wrong.

Turns out Greenie knows more than me too!

Then you have these experts.

I don’t think cool ground is the desired outcome. It was 20 degrees with the wind blowing.

Sigh. Yes, ear problem. Let’s diagnose it that way.

I think maybe attitude problem!

And finally - cherry on the cake - a job application!

But wow! Look at the page likes I got!

My stats went through the roof!


If you are curious, here is the real reason he is throwing his bull-fit.

He and his brother Scary Larry have been feuding. We’ve had to keep them separate since early December. Now whenever they get a visual on each other - “It’s on like Donkey Kong!”

(You can sure tell who has been doing the digging, huh?! Tooth is standing in Bull Hole!)

Any way, he is still my bull Tooth Fairy. And I love him. Even if he is famous, and has a bad attitude right now!

Unfortunately my subsequent Facebook posts did not reach to the same levels!

But that’s Ok, my daughter Addie just gives me a high five and says, “Mom, turns out you're a one-hit-wonder!”

I guess I’ll just take that!


Thank you for stopping by, Ill try not to let myOne-Hit-Wonderstatus go to my head! Come back soon, well leave the light on for ya!

February 4, 2016


I had three girls who really wanted to ride last Friday, (even though it was only about 20 degrees outside.) So we headed down to the pasture to pick up a couple mares.


We were just heading to the barn to get the horses all tacked up when, we heard this noise….


Look what we found! (Photo by Lily)


We took her in the house and got her all cleaned up and dried off and warmed up. And loved up!


She is just as cute as she can be! The girls name her Caramel.

Here’s a viedo for you. ** the sound is loud, but worth a listen.


Welcome to the barnyard little Cara!


Even if you are only knee high to a barn cat.


We think you are as cute as a bug!

Baby goat



Another goat had two more babies!


Addie told me she liked this picture of me.

“The goat really compliments your eyes.”

I guess I’ll take that. And accessorize with livestock more often.

So here you are with another Silly Selfie, I will spare you the Sonnet.

Thank you for stopping by the barnyard! February Fun has begun!
