Grass Fed....proof!

The other day I was out taking pictures and I couldn't resist these... they say it all!

Richard and his family raise these beautiful cows - Scotch Highland -- grass fed, no chemicals or hormones given to these animals!  When we get out of the car and yell MOOOO they come up to the edge of the field!

I will get some pictures of Jones - he is getting bigger and now barks at us... another demanding child in our house!

Have a great day!

New beginnings on the farm and at home...

Introducing.... Jones Hebron... chocolate lab... about 6 weeks old!  We call him Jonesy for short!

We picked him out on Mother's Day and Chris and his dad went and picked him up on Saturday... we are all in love.  He loves chasing the sheep and being at the Farm -- which excites Chris, but I am not ready to let him go everyday!

New baby lamb born last Thursday... cute as can be!

We spent Saturday with Chris doing the chores and introducing Jones to all of the animals!  Mom got to drive...lots of sad boys!

This is Jorja May and I talking to the pigs and feeding them some bread! 

We are all enjoying our new puppy and the last couple of weeks of school.  That means dad will have an additional helper on the farm --- aka Jackson!

Have a great week!

Yummm and Awwww...

Mother's Day started out with a yummy breakfast from Chris with all our Farm fixin's and all of my favorites...

And no...I didn't finish it by myself... it is a cheese omelet with sausage and gravy, bacon and hash one can make it like Chris does!  On our "You are special today" plate, that we bring out for everyone's special day.

Then we packed all six of us in the car and headed on a road trip to pick out a....

Puppy...and here he is!  He looks almost exactly like our dog McGee (a chocolate lab) that went to heaven a couple weeks ago from old age and I couldn't take not having a dog in the house -- and I grew up with a NO animal house and now am crazy addicted to animals.  We have to wait until next Saturday to pick him up --- which we need that much time because we can't agree on his name.  I have even caught Chris bribing the kids to pick his name, but I say since it is my Mother's day present, I should get to name him!  I will let you know what his name is soon!

Have a great week!!
