Gracious! I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since I wrote a blog post! To be honest, I really havent been all that busy, but now that the weather is teasing us with a bit of spring, maybe I will have something to post about.
Here is a recap of what we’ve been up to.
Last week we went to the sale to buy pigs. I’ve really been wanting to add a few to our little ranch family. Well, we only came home with one little piggy. I was a little disappointed, but now I know it was for the best. Turns out, the cost of raising a pig is more than I remembered. We paid $56.00 for the little guy, and a ton of feed is about $130.00. We could have bought a fat hog ready to go for $150.00. Oh well, I will be able to raise him slow and allow him to mature so he will be nice and lean for us. Plus, there is just something about raising your own food and giving less money to the grocery store.
We have endured another time change. I love having more daylight, but it’s sometimes hard to adjust. I posted this picture to the CBR Facebook page.
It kinda seems like he is having trouble adjusting too! lol
Our spring herd has begun to have their calves. This is alway so exciting! I love, love, love new babies!
The markings on this little girls face are so unique.
So far we have 3 calves on the ground. All 3 are heifers (girls).
Today I spent some time catching up on paperwork, and then went outside to clean out my garden shed before all the critters take over.
I’m getting excited to get my garden started. I just hope Mother Nature isn’t playing a joke on us and decide to dump a bunch of snow on us in the next few weeks.
I’m working on a post about how it all began for us here at CBR, so stay tuned for that. Also, you can keep up on the day-to-day happenings on our Facebook page.
Hope all is well with all of you!
