Our Ranch

We have a 40 acre ranch and about 40 goats, and mainly raise them for milk purposes. We also sell their kids. We also have some boer goats and some meat goat mixes.

It is kidding season this time of the year, So we just got our first kids- 2 colorful and healthy kids. Here's some pictures of them.

Snow And . . . .

Well, It's been along time since I posted last, so I'm trying to catch up.
Last Thursday evening it snowed, and in the morning there was quit a bit of snow on the ground. So, for starters here's some pictures outside and some close-ups of the snow. Taking pictures is fun with this new Nikon camera, usually I take about 100 pics at the least!

I cropped this one

Cropped this one too

Well, looks like our garden isn't doing soo good.

I like shooting wildlife and I heard a bird and I knew in general where it was, but couldn't spot it. Then it came closer and I took pictures before it flew somewhere where I couldn't see it. Next, I followed it until it flew too far. All of these are cropped. This is a female Red-Bellied Wood Pecker:

Neat Pics of Garden Bugs

We've been busy lately, so haven't found time to post. Here are some pics around the garden I took a few weeks ago. The garden has thrived in steaming (literally we planted in steaming horse manure!) dirt, llama manure and whatever we could find to plant in. The tomatoes are still producing (yes, this late in November!). The radishes and turnips are doing well, and the turnips have ladybugs all over them! Sooo, here are some pics around the garden and clear, close-up pics of the ladybugs.

Also, for more pics and information from around the ranch, visit Mom's blog here.

Alright here they are:
Turnip forest

Sad tomato plants, but still producing!


Evergrowing Jalapenos

Beets. . .

And the Turnip Forest (because we planted too many, oops!)

The harvest. . .

And finally the pickled turnips!

Also, we planted some garlic

Oh yeah, I almost forgot to show you the ladybug pics. Here you go, I picked some of my favorite and cropped them:

I think this is my favorite out of all

unique pattern

This would be really good if it was a little more clear, but you can still somewhat see it's face

Some kind of beetle

Free Step-By-Step How to Draw Farm Animals and a Butterfly

Hi Again,
Here are some step-by-step farm animals and a butterfly that I drew in pencil only, and scanned them onto the computer as I drew. You may use these for whatever you want, as long as you don't take these and say that you made them.

Have fun!!
