Blondie & Bogart meet the farrier!

First, let me tell you a little about my farrier.  Earlier this summer I found out that my neighbor, Val is a farrier and an awesome one at that!  She’s extremely patient and always talks to the horse she’s working on.  For example, she doesn’t just pick up a horse’s foot.. she asks for it! …

Bogart & Blondie, dwarf miniature horses

Last weekend I spent a few days at the Cookville Exotic Animal Auction which is held about every season.  I was hoping to acquire a bottle fed female Llama.  However, no females were available & I had been warned about bottle fed males so my visit was not fruitful… so I thought. When I returned…

Rhea County Pumpkinfest 2009

Friday, October 30th was overcast but warm. I had been invited to bring to our county’s Halloween celebration some animals for the children to enjoy and offer pony rides. I opted on bringing just a few goats and such as the weather was leaning on the rainy side. The event was at the county courthouse…

Bichon Frisé – Lap dog or farm dog?

I’m sure you’ve read about my Bichon Frisé, Mouse. I got her because Murphy had been gone for a few months and I was ready (and needing), a sweet little house dog that had eyes for me only. I chose to get a Bichon because they are small but sturdy (about 12 lbs max), non-shedding…

This & That on the farm

It’s been over 3 weeks since my last post.  Of course there’s always something interesting going on here.  Let’s see… I had decided that Ziggy (the Zebu), needed more attention than I was giving him.  He was “shacking” up with my 3 young Billy goats & being much bigger than they are, he was definitely…

Meet Ms. Piggy!

Last week I got a call from a guy looking for a home for little Pot Belly Pig he purchased at the flea market. This little girl was home raised and had never set foot in a barn! When I saw her tied with a 3 foot long wire to a post in a very…

My adorable Mini horses

All of my farm animals are special to me but I have to admit.. my mini horses are my favorite! I recently acquired a used pony carousel & had it “cut to size” – it was built for larger horses.  Every day (that it’s not too hot out), I work the minis on it along…

Crazy Goat Lady on Facebook

Some may have noticed that I removed the “Forum” option from my website. I wasn’t getting any contributions and it just became something else for me to manage.  Then I had some “fans” who were sending me pics and there was no way for me to post them without spending huge amounts of time formatting…

August update

So much has happened at the farm since the beginning of the summer!  I always have every intention of posting all that goes on but then life happens and you just have to follow the current & do what needs to be done at that time.  So of course, the farm being a hobby, my…

New Llama buddies… Major & Big Al

After we sadly lost Little D to an unfortunate accident (read prior post), we thought Stormy looked lost and lonely.  Through Carol from Wolf Creek Farms we were able to acquire 2 beautiful gelded males from a friend of hers, Val Carmichael of Agape Lland Llamas The big one (and I mean BIG!), is called…
