Stand in Farmers

If our house projects slow up a little, this is why...A friend of ours, the one we got our goats from previously, has a farm with herds of sheep and goats. They live a few hours south of thier farm and would come up each weekend to take care of it. The hurricane knocked down most of thier trees, leaving the grazing land riddled with branches and trees. And now a close family member of hers took ill and is needing all her support. Yet we just discovered she was still coming up here to tend to her flocks. So we called and asked if we could feed the animals and tend to them for her so she could do what she really needed to do. We dont live far from her farm and we LOVE farm life anyway. She did have cows but because of her turn of events she had to give them up. Its ashame we didnt know about her situation earlier! She has fences that need to be mended because trees are on them, and a barn that took a direct hit from a tree. Plus she has to plant grass in March so her animals can graze, and currently you cant even see the ground due to the mass amount of tree loss. So a LOT of cleanup & mending work is going to be needed. We plan on doing as much as we possibly can! I'm just grateful she accepted so she can give her all to her family member and she has one less burdon to worry about! Here are some photos of the farm we will be helping to get back into shape







The above is what a large part of the property looks like. You cant even see the ground and yet it that is the grazing land. Its such a mess! I can get a better photo when its not soo gloomy out. It was sundown on a gloomy day so my photos didnt come out that great.











I soooo fell in love with the little chocolate colored lamb! He/she is too cute!!!!
