Have you seen the photos of our farm animals? They were taken a few weeks ago by my friend, Tony, from Anthony David Photography & Design. If you are looking for a local photographer, I highly recommend him. He is an outstanding person and does amazing work! Be sure to follow him on Facebook too.

We were now shepherds. Scott was ecstatic, the kids were very excited, and yet, I was a tad hesitant. I felt like I had just gotten the hang of dealing with the beef cows and calves, and now all of a sudden I was going to have to learn something new. At least this something new, was smaller than me and didn’t kick – though the thought of rams around had me nervous.
