A diary of the projects, hurdles, rewards and family life at we recorded at Wise Acres, our former homestead in Horsefly, BC. (Careers and teenagers have forced us back into the city, at least for a little while.)

New goats!

Meet Rosie and Gaston...
We picked them up last week-end from Hunny-Do Ranch in Quesnel.  Rosie is the little doe with horns and Gaston is our new buck.  Originally we went to just get him because we have had a tough time deciding if we wanted to borrow a buck or not for breeding Faith, we decided it was just easier to have our own so off we went to pick him up...but then we met Rosie.  She is bred and due to kid in a few months.  She is quite adorable... it is difficult to get a shot of her because she is always right behind me.  She loves people and cries when she sees us outside until we come and give her a scratch.
This morning I noticed that Faith is really loving Gaston, so I am hoping that means she is in heat and we should have kids in five months or so.  Here she is wagging her tail at him...
I find the barnyard romancing so very funny...here is a picture of Hvitkarr sniffing one of the ewes...
This is how ram's say..."hey baby...you smell goooood"!

And this is little "Shadow" our first lamb of the season...he and his momma have rejoined the flock and seem to be doing fine.


  1. did not immediately return Flyer News' calls.

  2. She says that she loves placing on them all the time when she is not working. For her shoes, she prefers flats contemplating which they are really comfortable.

  3. If you hold a peek in her closet, she reveals that her closet is just overly messy. With makers like free of cost online community sweats, Scoop the store, 2B Free, Rebel Yell sweats, Hollister, Abercrombie and Fitch and James Perse

  4. Ashley is not shy in splurging in purses and sunglasses

  5. contemplating that she loves aviators. However, she stresses that she could possibly be the spending budget shopper master, making particular she buys many affordable stuff instead of buying only just one high-priced item.
