1 year Blogaversary

 My Blog is 1!

This week my blog turned 1! It has been raining the last few days and we were unable to take any pictures outside. In my first couple of posts, I posted pictures of our property and introduced our new barnyard friends. My plan was to take some current pictures of our farm and barnyard friends and introduce you to our newest member, Nemo. Today has turned out to be a great day for pictures. Read on below for our one year update!

In my first post, I showed pics of our new home when we first purchased it. I wanted to show some current pictures with the grounds cleaned up.

It looks so much nicer just with the grass cut and edging done. A lot of elbow grease, but not a lot of money.

We also cleaned up the driveway. We cut it out and added more gravel. Our goal is to eventually get it paved.

This stream goes through the middle our property and the kids love to hunt for turtles and frogs along it.

That first week I also introduced some farm animals we acquired after purchasing the property.

Here is the latest baby we have. It's a boy and we named him Nemo because he has a damaged ear.

John Henry is enjoying have a pasture big enough to run in. He also has a girlfriend over on our neighbors farm. She is a full size mare, but he doesn't seem to mind. He will still prance and show off for her. :)

A couple more of our goats walking along one of the trails we have in our pastures.

Ed is the friendliest goat we have. He loves to be petted and will stick his head out of the fence and yell at you to come and pet him.

He is a beautiful buck and a lot of fun to play with.

I hope you have enjoyed this look at were we are now compared to when we started.
