Yet another example of why panel fencing is one of the most dangerous things on the ranch. #goosed #ranchlife

Pascal shows off his hardware. He's pretty indifferent about people but I always have an exit strategy when I'm in there with him. #mangalitsa #woolypigs #500lbsoflove

Rizzo doesn't get much publicity around here but that's because she'd rather work than socialize. Other than Jones, no one earns their pay around here more than Rizzo. #Anatolianshepherds #livestockguardiandogs

Today was our intern Tiffany's last day. Thanks for all of your help and best of luck finishing up at UC Davis! #backtoworkforus

Three years ago today we closed on the ranch and became farmers! Nearly everyone we told said "I've always wanted to do that, I am totally going to live vicariously through you guys". Well, we've learned a lot and accomplished a lot since then but sometimes I miss the simple homestead we started with too. I wonder what it will look like 3 years from now. #tobecontinued #ranchlife #livevicariously

Our little peanut is in the middle of the second week her heat cycle so she's been cooped up and stir crazy. She's super receptive right now so Jones has been locked up too except to pose for a quick pic with his betrothed. While it's funny to watch her flirting with (neutered) Ruckus, backing into him and turning her tail to the side, puppies are Not on the to do-list this year!

My lucky day. Just had my hand in there and look what crawled out. We have had way more than our share of these rascals this summer. #blackwidow

Guess who's in big trouble for gobbling down the last surviving pea chick this morning. I'm guessing we'll have a constant chorus of honks and screeches from a forlorn Watson for the next two weeks. #GreatPyrenees #livestockguardian(butnotpeacocks)dog

Going home

Today was going home day for 8 of our wethers. They will be working as weeders and entertainers at a local ranch. Have a great life boys!

Our little rescue mouser, Mrs Livingston, has grown into an excellent mess maker and water glass tipper overer. #stillhaventseenadeadmouse
