Wow, 3 weeks and I'll be living it up farming almost full time. Maybe I will find a sane person to join in the fun to help. I have an extra bedroom in the house I'm moving in and if I can talk someone into sharing rent with me I can go whole hog (I just had to do it!lol) on my farming projects and not look back! It's exciting!! I will have a fully functioning barn, garage and rabbit/duck house. What should we call the duck/rabbit house? duckbit? rabuck? The Duck Palace and Rabbit Ménage à trois?? (that is f'in perfect since I will be starting out with a buck and two does!!!). Hahahahahahaha!!!!
I'm so excited to start this adventure!!!! Wheeee! I will be close enough to get the kids easily, but just far enough. :) Go me!!!

It's amazing when you know exactly what your supposed to be doing with your life. I had that overwhelming feeling after leaving a friend's farm today. I held a piglet that was no more than a week or so old. It's like my heart sang praises of "this, this here, is what your supposed to be doing!" It's such an awesome feeling and after talking to a farmer friend and being intrenched in this life of taking care of the earth and its inhabitants, so rewarding. This is where I'm supposed to be, RIGHT NOW! What a feeling!!!
The grass here is still not up far enough to feed to the sheep so besides hay I'm feeding some fodder again too. I realize with Big Mama, she would eat a whole tray a day if I had it available. If you need more info on fodder, I will link my other post from my other blog on here. Here's my set-up again:
