Its been a LONG time since I've blogged on here. Very soon I will be transitioning my website to the blog entirely, eliminating my current website. I find the blog is a better way to reach my farm friends and I can add pages to the blog for my various livestock and agricultural endeavors.
Ribbon my Myotonic Fainting Doe kidded almost a week early yesterday with the most beautiful little buckling by Scout.
He is such a cutie, already bouncing around like crazy. I'm very excited to watch him grow!

My new Nigerian Dwarf herd buck Cupid is home, he looks a whole lot like Tambourine just his markings are brown and he has brown eyes instead of blue ones. I can't wait to see what he produces next year with my girls. He is settling in really well with the boys.

I've been working a ton lately at the ER/Day practice and have had alot of stuff going on with the dogs so there hasn't been much time to take photos around the farm.
All is well with the farm animals. I'm going to be culling a large amount of rabbits in the coming weeks to open up space for my Cremes/meat projects. The litter of cremes born earlier this year are growing into beautiful well furred and fleshed animals. I'm very excited to see how my venture into a more commercial rabbit project progresses.
In goat news the baby fainting kids are enormous and doing great! The farm vet will be coming out sometime soon to do yearly blood testing/vaccinations/neutering on the herd. I'm picking up my new Nigerian Dwarf herd buck on Tuesday and will definitely posting about him with photos of course once he's home.
I'll try and post a bit more regularly as my work schedule eases up and dog trials slow down for the summer.

Yikes its been a while since I've posted on here!
Farm construction continues, the baby farm animals continue to grow and get more beautiful each day.

All is well on the farm.
Dandy's kids are a week old and doing fabulous! The two little girls, I've named Maple and Syrup are always bouncing around. They are getting disbudded later today so they won't be too thrilled with me but its a necessary evil - no horns on the farm, which means sometime this winter Dandy, Ribbon and Scout will finally get dehorned by the Vet.
The Cremes are enormous and starting to get silvered. I really wish I had someone local to help evaluate them for me. Commercial body styles are new for me (I'm a full arch breeder!) so I'm not sure who to keep from this litter... they are all very cute!
I'll get some new photos up soon. :)

A recent court ruling in Maryland about pit bulls being dangerous has me extremely mad.. the repercussions of this ruling potentially can be very far reaching and make current pit bull owners' lives very difficult especially concerning renting/home owner's insurance...
As an extremely proud owner of 4 pit bulls, I work hard every day to change the public's perception of the breed by competing with my dogs in various dog sports like obedience, rally-o, agility, weight pull, and conformation.
To all those who think pit bulls are inherently dangerous, they need only look through old photos on this blog and on my other blog.. here's a recent one.
Pepsi is really vicious huh?
