An up and coming Christmas and an oppertunity for you!

Hello out there! Sorry for so few posts! I realized yesterday that I had not posted since June! I suppose that’s because after June was when summer really started up, and as many know summer is when our farm thrives. Fairs, shows, washing chickens, etc. This year was a pretty successful show year, and our little farm really showed that it’s animals (and people!) could be successful! A couple of my best achievements:

2 first place showmanship at Ohio State fair(poultry),

1 place showmanship county fair, plus Master showman at county fair(poultry),

Best of show alpaca,

3rd place showmanship Ohio National Poultry show,

and the best for last….Grand Champion Continental at the Ohio National Poultry show!! Woot woot!

Now those were just some, and only mine! My sister did very well this year too! 1st in showmanship’s, grand champion large fowl, etc…Now that I have gone over that, it’s time to talk about the up and coming! It is nearly Christmas (just 16 days!)! I can hardly believe how the year has flown by and that it is nearly 2013. It seems that just yesterday we were all gathered around the Christmas tree laughing and opening gifts.

Now I want to do something a little different for this post. Rather than me just talking about what my family does for Christmas, I want to here about you! Let me know how you celebrate your Christmas or any other holiday you celebrate in the comments below! The more comments the better! After you all have told me about what you are doing, I will write another post about how my family celebrates. So go ahead, type away!

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!

So, I’m new to this whole blogging thing, but I hope you will give my blog a chance. I live on a farm in Fredericktown, Ohio. I have grown up on a farm almost my whole life, and I would love to be a able to share a little bit of my life with you! There is almost always some sort of adventure here on the farm, and it seems there is just not enough people to share it with!
