A Pistol Predicament

After Pistol hurt her back, I had her in the Love Shack for a couple of days.  Even though the vet told me to watch that she wasn’t getting worse, she actually improved quite a bit.  I moved her to the greenhouse to give her a bit more room.

She’s done well in there.  She walks and can go up and down the step.  She seems mostly normal, but I do see a slight limp occasionally.  She also has a new problem.  She can’t seem to get her head back out of the cattle panel if she puts it through an opening.  Now I’ve long been impressed at her skills of maneuvering her head around to get her horns positioned just right to pull her head back out.  She can’t do it now.  So she gets stuck. And I’m at work.  So my mom is checking on her.

I can’t put her out in the Back Forty.  Even though she’s doing well, that would be very bad for her recovery.  The only thing worse would be putting her up north where there are two bucks that would breed her.  I don’t know what to do with her.

The Time of My Life

I really did have the time of my life this weekend.  It was wonderful to see people coming to my farm and enjoying it as much as me.  I met a young lady that I just could take home with me.

How cute is she!  She’s checking out the bees from Schmidt Honey Farms.


We are stocking their locally produced honey, and we even have some bees hanging out on the farm for the pumpkin patch.


She met a new friend, and I think they had fun.

Can you guess what I have planned new for this weekend?

The weather for this weekend looks like it will be perfect!  That’s good.

We also have the local fire department grilling and selling food as a fundraiser this Saturday.  I’m very excited!

Opening Day

I am exhausted, but I declare our first day to be a success.  My only worry now is leaving the kids for the night.  They should be perfectly fine, and they seemed to enjoy the new area to play in today, but I have to have something to worry about.

I have more pictures on the farm Facebook page if you want to see more.  There aren’t as many as I would have liked, but that’s because I was busy.  That’s a good thing.
