Little Big Ears


Taco, hiding behind mama’s hay. He’s over a week old now, and has started frolicking–which drives Blossom nuts! Baby is supposed to stay still, right where she put him! Ha.

  1. img_8595 September 26, 2016 - Well, That Was Disappointing

    It was supposed to THUNDERSTORM today. I was SO EXCITED. It’s barely rained for months (you know, since the Great Flood–we get it all at once or we don’t get it this year). So here it came, finally, this afternoon.

    Yeah. That’s it. Barely enough to dampen the Sahara Desert of the barn yard creekbed. Woo hoo.

    This has been such a strange year. After the worst flood this state has seen in many, many decades (or more, they called it the Thousand Year Flood), we’ve had NO rain. I guess we got it all at once. The creeks are bone dry, and even the springs aren’t doing much. There’s a lot of bucket-filling to keep the animals in water. … Continued…

    Glory Bee, also with basketballs in her belly.

    I believe the girls are bred!

    Milk cows!

    They never–and I mean NEVER–say no to a milkin’!

    (That’s Glory Bee, with Moon Pie–her two-and-a-half-year-old previous calf–sucking from behind and her current calf, Pumpkin, sucking from the side. With Moon Pie’s own calf, Gingersnap, lazing in front of the scene!)

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
