Spring Changes

This past week we have been cleaning and revamping the Homestead.  Aside from the sheep and a few free-range chickens in the far upper pasture, all animals have been moved to new homes.  I can’t help but feel relived.  As much as our goats served a wonderful purpose, our last gal had long since dried up and we made a determination years ago to not harbor “hay burners”.  So, out with the old and in…. Well, nothing new for a while.  I am happy to report all have found loving homes!  Prayerfully this spring we can work on the farming aspect of life and not so much the ranching aspects.
