December 2007 – March 2011

How can I say, “The End” without appearing sad or regretful?  Because I am neither! A few days ago the last animals of my beautiful menagerie left my farm.  The llamas, Stormy & Major were taken to the most beautiful place in East Tennessee to finish their lives as the perfect lawn ornaments they are….

Moving on…

My husband & I have decided that it is also time to downsize our home.  Although we’re both young (56 & 53), this huge property will soon be too much for us to maintain.  Both physically & financially.  We’ve decided to put our property on the market & when it sells, we’ll be looking for…

To keep or not to keep… that is the question!

I’ve recently been replying to inquiries on various subjects…  kidding, worming, etc., and many of the folks I communicate with are dealing with goats that are totally not people friendly.  Not just shy goats but goats that you have to lasso to catch & tie down to administer meds or simply for routine hoof trimming….

In retrospect…. 2010

It’s 7:30 am & I’ve been up since about 5.  To be honest with you, I’ve been suffering with insomnia for the past few days but I usually just toss & turn in bed.  Today I gave up seeing I had to tend to my diabetic dog, Angel who beckoned a few minutes before 5.  …

Crazy Goat Lady’s Pet Peeves

We all have them – sometimes situations make us aware of new ones.  Most of the time I don’t even think about such things unless I’m confronted with an issue that really drives me bananas!  I usually don’t think about it more than a few seconds but lately I find myself getting easily aggravated.  It’s…

Coming soon!

Friends,  it’s been a beautiful summer!  I realize how long it has been since my last post…actually since July 18th! As you can see, my husband really re-vamped my website & I absolutely love it!  I’ve been looking at it and thinking, “What more can I do here?  How can I improve this website &…

The Joy of Selling Online – doesn’t matter what you’re selling!

The part I dislike about having a bunch of little goats for sale is actually selling them.  If you set aside the fact that you really never know what folks are going to do with your animals (you have to trust your instincts here), that is not the hardest part of selling your little creatures….

Zipper.. our Border Collie Puppy

Quick note.. shortly after I posted this story my husband decided Skippy was more appropriate than Zipper… so her name has been changed! Well, we’re back to Zipper… for some reason we Skipper/Skippy just didn’t work for her! Let me start by the beginning.    Early December I noticed that my neighbor down the hill had…
