A Busy First Summer On The Farm (Part 3)

Happy New Year everyone!

So here we are on January 1st and I'm finally getting the last post of my Summer updates done!

I promised an animal here we go...
Our little Holstein grew a lot this summer eating all that good grass.
We spent a lot of time with him so he's very calm and such a nice little guy. He is getting bigger now though and we have to keep an eye on him!

We've lost a goose and a few chickens to coyotes over the summer.
I love the sound of the coyotes at night (when the chicken are safely locked up!) but they've been  hard on everything from poultry to cats around here.

However, we do have a new batch of guineas! We thought a coupe of our guineas had been eaten because they disappeared for awhile, but then they turned up with twelve new babies!

We also really enjoyed having the Angus herd in one of our pastures.

Our hope is that we can rent the pasture out again this year and use that money to work on building our own herd. Not of Angus though...I would love a jersey or two, a short horn...still thinking about what we would like to have.

There are a few other animals we hope to add (goats are toward the top of the list, and my husband really wants a horse!), this summer was just a bit too busy with selling our old house and adjusting to our new place to get everything we wanted done! 

Well, that's about it for my summer updates! 
Are you a fan on our Facebook page? If so, you may have seen a pic I recently posted of a nice, warm fire...that's our new woodstove and the last piece of the living room remodel! We'll talk more about that next time!

Wishing everyone a wonderful new year!
