More animal introductions.

This here is Max. Our pony. He is 16 years old. We bought him last year at an livestock auction. He waa in pretty tough shape. But after some tlc he was great. J loves to sit and take rides on him. Still looking for a pony saddle so I can feel a bit safer with him riding max. 

He just had his hooves trimmed Tuesday. And a good brushing before put out in the pasture with our heifer and steer.  

Here is our heifer(baby girl) she was a twin to another heifer but her twin died. She is a full jersey.  She is 3 years old. We are getting a jersey bull to breed her. Hopefully be breeding her come July of this year. 

And then you have Edgar our black Angus steer. He’s just over a year. And if he grows as we expect. He’ll be headed off to the butcher. Which is hard cause I’ve raised him. He was a bottle baby. We bought him at the same auction we got Max at. 

Here are the 7 piglets. They’ll be 2 weeks old this Saturday. They will be headed to their new home around June 24th. They are going to one of my regular customers. He may even take the piglets that are expected to arrive in September. It’s looking like outta this litter there was only 2 gilts and the rest boars. They tend to have more males then females. 

This is Remington he’s gonna be the newest member on the farm. He’s a register Nigerian buck. He has BLUE eyes!! Which is awesome. So hopefully his babies have blue eyes. We’ll know next spring. He gets to breed 2. One lamancha and then my newest Nigerian doe. 

This is cocoa. Shes a chocolate lab mix. She was a rescue pup. We got her a month after we had J. It was interesting, newborn baby and a pup. I don’t suggest it! 

Oh  Don’t let this picture fool you i don’t feed her lol. Okay okay yes I do. Ha! Hubby says it’s extremely obvious cuz everytime I have food this is where you’ll find her.  I’m like nah it’s cause she loves me so very much! Ha!  

So there’s a few more of our of critters.

Alright first off I do all my writing via my phone. So please don't judge me to harshly on the typos. I try to catch them but will most definitely miss a few. Next I'm not great at writing the about me sections of these things. You'll find out more about me by reading my posts vs me trying to squish something into the about me section. But here's a little tid bit. My name is Misty. I am 31 year old country gal. I'm a wife and mom. My son will be known as J in my blog posts. And hubby well will be hubby. Easy enough. I am a stay at home mom. Where not only do I tend to my son. But I run our small scale farm. Which includes cows, ducks, pigs, dairy goats, a pony, a dog and a cat. And coming soon chickens. We got rid of our last set of chickens over the winter. To make room for some young hens. We also have 2 large gardens and 2 smaller ones. I raise and grow about 90 percent of the food we eat. Lots of canning in the fall. I also enjoy hunting and fishing. So be on the look out for those stories in the blog. I created my blog to have a place to write. To share my thoughts/ramblings. Share our adventures. Good or bad. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
