Magical

May
20


Sometimes, I take a moment, and just sit. And listen. And look. And walk around and see and pet and do. Or not do and just pet.


And I realize it really is that special.




Then I gotta go feed somebody or do the dishes or milk. Or something. But it was a really great moment! (P.S. Guess what Coco’s doing in the corner by the hay.)

    This was wonderful! I can’t wait to watch it again when I get up! I’m also going to make sure my daughter sees it, because I think – even though he’s only 18 months old – my grandson will love it!

    Thank you. And Coco? I hope she’s not looking for eggs – probably making her own nest!!!

    She’s sucking a batch of eggs! Naughty puppy. Time to inject a syringe full of hot sauce into a couple of them and leave them for her to find. That will normally do the trick and breaking her of that bad habit.

    This is the BEST video you have ever posted. I could watch this over and over. Precious animals.

    Great video! I know what you mean about those precious minutes that you just stand still and pay attention.

    It looked to me like Coco was nesting. What’s up with that?

    What a great and noisy video. Here, sitting in my office of my city apartment, I wondered at the loudness of life there. And when the turkeys chimed in, my cat went crazy….only with the turkeys. Funny how he reacted to just one type of animal in the video!

    Love the sounds of the farm! Great video.

    I bet Coco was eating either chicken poo or eggs. Both make her a naughty puppy! lol

    THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES.

    I have no idea what Coco is doing in that corner. Please tell us.

    Hunting for eggs is my guess. Coco..leave the eggs for Suzanne!

    I loved the video..all of those wonderful sounds surround you…just heaven!

    That was fun….sitting here in the gated subdivision with hundreds of look-alike houses with the ground so cracked from lack of rain…video take me away to the land of green and sounds of nature.

    Yes, magical is a good word. Love the sounds of your animals.

    I think Coco is hunting for eggs too.

    At first, I thought that Coco was eating eggs but then when I saw Granny Trace’s comment, figured she was right. Mine love all the farm animals’ goodies! :snoopy:

    Lovely, just lovely. I love the trees and the hills that seem to go on forever. The sounds of the animals seemed to echo…

    My fav parts are Glory Bee eating hay and that tiny roo with his wimpy crow!

    That single rooster’s crow was pitiful. I love when our roosters were just starting to crow. Made us laugh every time. I wish you had gotten a still shot of the lamb in the grass. That would make a great wallpaper for the computer.

    I vote that Coco is eating poo, also. That’s what my dog always does in the coop. Apparently it’s “delish”!

    Aww, that was nice. Drove my lab crazy though! Is Coco egg hunting?

    Oh how I love the sounds of the farm….the wakeup songs are the best :)

    Has there been a lamb tail fall off lately that Coco has to hide?

    What Coco is doing in the corner by the hay is hunting eggs!

    Uh-ohhhh . . . . I hope Coco hasn’t started a bad habit.
    I LOVED the video – it made me want to crawl right in to it. I would like to come sit on your porch for a day . . . or, a year! Thank you! And please tell us more about Coco and the eggs!

    Uh oh, Coco! Unless you are finding them and then fetching them to Suzanne you are gonna be in big trouble! Wish the injecting them with hot sauce would work on other chickens and crows! My dogs don’t touch them but sometimes the other hens do….and a crow was spotted flying out of the coop with an egg yesterday!

    What a beautiful video, when I get the courage to run away, it just might be to WV!

    Lovely, I think that looks more like Virginia and home than Oregon does. The geese are growing nicely. Looks like they are very healthy and happy.
    When my dog hunted eggs she brought IT to me and never did it again. She hunts rats in the chicken house so I thought it might have been a rat. No the chicken house isn’t dirty and No I don’t let them stay aroun. I have a ratter dog!!!

    When that rooster first crowed, two of my kitties jumped a foot. They were both napping. Why is it so much fun to scare napping kitties?
    Is Coco fetching or snacking?

    Love the sound of the birds in the woods. Not many trees here in northeast Kansas and I miss that sound.

    This is a fabulous video! simple, natural, beautiful! I hope one day I have something so peaceful and beautiful. 2 weeks to go and i leave the city life in FL, for a rural life in the pacific northwest. I cant wait to get my own chickens!

    Loved the video. But it totally freaked my house-cats out. One dived under the bed the other went in hunter mode. I’m bad I played it twice just to watch her hunt (can’t let her out in the city). Second time the other cat came out to investigate too.

    I loved this video!!! We had a farm alot like yours about 13 yrs ago and I find that I miss it. Now – we are urban farmers, which is also enjoyable, but I miss the sounds. THANK YOU so much for sharing this mirror into your life.

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....
