Just for fun, here are a few of my favorite photos from over the years:
Dream, drying off after her bath at the county fair - you'll notice that my daughter didn't get all the soapsuds off. Dream was awarded Champion Dairy Doe at the fair that year. She and her half-sister Hope were my very first goats, bought as weanlings.
I had a pair of embden geese for about a year. Our neighbor gave them to me when her husband was so sick with cancer and she had to seriously downsize their livestock. Watching the geese in the barnyard was one of my favorite things. They were so peaceful and yet so amusing.
Sheik, Easter, and Logan (left to right) in the wintertime.
Our daughter on Easter, shortly after we adopted Easter from a horse rescue.
And lastly, our granddaughter on one of her summer visits, with the three grown-up pups. I've been so thankful to be able to give her the horsey summers that my grandparents gave me.
