The “Cheep” Daily

Oh my goodness, no blog posts for a long time! So, you probably are all wondering why the lack of posts. Well, read on and you will find out šŸ™‚

It seems that spring has sprung here on our 23 acre farm. And with spring comes a lot of busyness. As you remember from a couple posts ago we have been having baby goats born on our farm. We currently have 7 and we have one other goat expecting. The baby’s are already growing at a pretty fast rate and our as rotten as ever! In fact two of the babies are named “Boonie” and “Clyde” because they are so rotten! They seem to be just small enough that they can squeeze out from the fence. They find the hay VERY fun!! šŸ™‚

So, why the name for this post? Almost all know that chicks go “cheep”! And our farm has been in full swing with hatching chicks. I believe we are on our 4th hatch of the season. Now, you’re probably thinking “you really need that many chickens?” Well, we can always use new layers, but our hatch rates have not been that great. But as my mom would say, it is almost addictive hatching chicks. It is fascinating to one day pick up an egg and 21 days later have a living, breathing, chick! Along with hatching we have 48 broilers. The broilers we will sell to customers at my father’s job.

I hope y’all are doing great!

Update on the farm

Howdy fellow internet users! And thanks for viewing my blog! Lately there has a lot going on our farm. Spring seems to be coming and the grass is turning green. With spring coming upon us rather quick we find that we have 7 new animals on our farm. That’s right 7! After my last post about having 2 new baby goats our other goat, Maggie, had triplets! Then today, when we went down to our barn we found 2 new surprises! To sum that up, another goat, Abby, had twins!

Along with all of our goats we have been working with our llama. As you may recall we are training her to walk on a lead. She actually is doing a very good job. Along with our llama we have been working with our 2 alpacas, Lightening Bolt and Taurus. They seem to be a little more trouble then the llama. Although, we bought them from a lady that said they had been shown before, they seem to always have there brakes on!

The sun has been shining here on our little farm and it seems we all (well at least me!) can’t wait for spring/summer. But most of all, for school to be out! I love to hear from you, so let me know what you have been up to!

Mystery

Sorry, for the lack of new posts. Recently IĀ  have been pretty busy with school and farm work. So this post is to catch you up on what I have been up to.

On Sunday (the 6th) our goat Charlotte had two babies. One is a boy, named Pablo. And the other is a girl, named Peanut. I don’t have a very good picture at the time, but I will try to get some the next time I go to the barn.

Also, on Sunday we brought our llama, Kahlua, out for a walk. She actually did a pretty good job, and Mom has brought her out two more times since. I have a picture of her (from last month) just to give you an idea of what she looks like!

Now, I shall tell you why this post is titled “mystery”. Yesterday we got a new cat from our friend. She knew we wanted another barn cat, and she didn’t want her anymore. So, we agreed to get her. When we got home from being out all day (yes the cat was upset from being in cage almost all day!) we put her in a nice, clean, soft, dog cage. She needs to get use to her new surroundings. This morning when we went down to take care of her she was gone! Yes, gone! We have NO clue how she got out!! We searched everywhere but could not find her. We only found her a few minutes ago. It turns out she was between two boxes, and I am guessing she was there all day!

So with that, the mystery is solved. Except for how she got out of the cage… Let me know what you have been up to, and don’t forget to tell your friends about my site!
