New to the Herd

1 May

We have a new little farmer around here.

My nephew and his wife had their baby last week, and I got to photograph him this past weekend!

What a little cutie!

He was just the best little baby to photograph.

He’s perfect in every little detail.

I hope I get to photograph him a lot more.

The Milk Room

1 Jul

In between the kidding, hide-and-goat-seek, fence repairs, and everything else, I’ve been working in the milk room.  If you’ve been very observant, you might have noticed the progress.

Well, I am pleased to announce that it is so close to being truly finished that I’m going to say it’s done!

I added the trim, and other than possibly putting handles on the bottom cupboard doors and fixing the spots we messed up the wall, it’s done.

I already love the cupboards for my medical and hoof supplies.

The counter is perfect for setting my gallon tote on (instead of the floor) once I wean kids and start milking in earnest.

The goats really haven’t noticed.  As long as they get their food, they’re happy!

While I was doing cupboards and using up reclaimed counter tops, I put this in the garage!

I plan to put my photography stuff in here.  Did I mention I’m trying to turn it into a little photography studio?

If all goes well, by the end of the summer, my garage will be completely done!  I can only hope!

Still Learning

3 May

In my quest to continue learning and improving my photography skills, I’ve made the switch to full manual (actually, yesterday’s post was also shot on full manual).  If the goats are just standing out in pasture, I do okay.

I sometimes forget to make changes though when they start playing and running.

After I finally (don’t ask how many blurry pictures there were) remember to make that tiny adjustment, It’s all good again.

Sometimes it’s even really good.

I still have a long way to go though.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.
