Annie’s Trick


Annie is the sweetest little thing. You can’t get near her without her wanting to be between your ankles or right on top of you. She’s very friendly.
Annie: “I love you! I just want to be with you!”
Notice the tractor parked in the alleyway there. Annie really wants to drive it. We caught her up on the seat and had to shoo her down. Then the next day….
….we found the battery was drained because she’d turned the key!
Annie: “I just wanted to be like you and drive it.


Annie’s not the only one with tricks up her sleeve, by the way. Remember Cherry’s one ear up one ear down trick?
Bella can do it, too!
(Finally, a decent picture of Bella where she held still for it.)

I’m still waiting for the goat conversion kit for my milker to arrive, and getting to know the new milk girls. Annie is a naughty sweetheart. Cherry… I discovered that she’s been disbudded, which is nice. I’m working on petting her up to tame her down. And Bella? Bella’s still running away from me.

The milking…. It’s going to be an adventure.

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....
