  • Took on three more elder cats in the Elder Suite
  • Had to get our hay from Canada this year due to the horrible hay season [wet and humid]. This will mean we have to haul 12 tons over a few days and load into barn. Not fun!
  • The new book "Walter" is due to arrive this week so I will be shipping ASAP
  • Franklin Muffinpants has grown to 5.5 pounds, that is more than a pound a month
  • Took on two special needs chickens one of who is named Lemon Hoppidity [the little girl named it for her grandmother, the chicken is slightly deformed feet]
  • Officer Mittens has been eating too many doughnuts and weighed in at 11 months at 15.5 pounds. He has requested a new uniform.
If you follow along on social media, you know we got the devestating news tat White Dog has bone cancer. I had him at the vet to get his stitches out from hi mix up with Earnest the pig, and I noticed the back leg had a huge bump. It had appeared almost overnight, just like Muddy's cancer did two years ago. We are so devestated as are so many people. We all know White Dog is my spirit guy. We have him home on meds and we will monitor him for pain and do the right thing when the time comes, but we of course are not looking forward to this goodbye.

The photo above was just last week, after we knew about the cancer. The woman is in hospice and we were able to get her to the farm for her own private healing day. She loved horses and we had Biggs and The Teapot too, and then I also brought in White Dog. It was a very moving visit for all of us. The woman said, "This feels like home." She cried when she had to go back to the residence but her tears were also because she was so touched we were all able to make it happen for her.
Donations keep our 50 animals [30 are hay eaters] going and keep the vets paid and fences standing. Thank you if you can donate. All donations are tax deductible.DONATE NOW
This is why I don't get enough work done around here. Puddles and Pickles...double the trouble!
Old Apple has given us another bounty this year. The pigs can't wait. And Little Sylvia Pettini looks on.
