Clarice is in the nursery recovering from a little infection in her udder. She thinks the new camo will hide her at treatment time. #nigeriandwarf #ranchlife

We laid little Dharma to rest this morning under an oak tree at the top of the hill that catches the first light of day. The twins and Cotty have been standing watch ever since. A nice farewell. :) #ranchlife

Freeze is on the way

33 degrees in Bradley this morning. Say goodbye to those late season tomatoes. Time to wrap the stock tank faucets. — at Vicarious Ranch.

Finished up the new 8x10 rodent resistant storage shed yesterday. It is staying in the corner of the pole barn for now. We haven't decided if it will keep the squirrels out of the alfalfa or the pack rats off the Harley. #keepingnatureatbay #ranchlife

Home Sweet (smelling) Home

Can you believe we were on Broadway last night taking in a show? Thanks so much to our friend Steve for keeping an eye on things for us! He's quite the farmer.  :) #backtoreality #welcomehome

Green acres

That little day of rain we had a week or so ago has broken the dormancy around here quite nicely. #nature #GreatPyrenees #therainyseason

Social media, farm style.

Our last remaining turkey, Yo Gobble Gobble, has been having a heated discussion with his reflection in the truck bumper all afternoon. #broadbreastedbronze #farmsocialmedia

Don't tell Harley, but we are one step closer to getting his replacement. 10 months with no piglets is way too long for something that eats that much.

Snack Time

Pixie grabs a snack from the alfalfa stockpile. She was very depressed with the other goats so now has run of the barnyard and is back to her old self. #mininubian #ranchlife
