Our mini-donkeys (Smile)

I was out visiting the donkeys tonight. The light was lovely so I tried to take some photos. As usual, I got about a dozen super close-ups of donkey ears, donkey eyes, and a horse nose. Every time I pull out the phone to take a photo lately, they walk up to see what I'm doing. I did, however, get this interesting one with a horse head shadow on Meadow.
You may recall the problem we had last winter with the donkeys chewing on the barn. They really did a lot of damage. For any of you considering getting mini-donkeys, this is a common "bad habit" they have. Anyway, we repaired all the damage they did on the outside of the barn and then stapled up chicken wire to try to prevent them from doing it again. We will spray paint right over it all. Hope it works!
While I have your attention, note that we have three specials going right now with two other businesses. Click the tabs above to learn more about the offers of a copy of the book Growing and Marketing Ginseng, Goldenseal and Other Woodland Medicinals with either 2 ounces of ginseng seed, 25 one-year old ginseng rootlets, or 10 goldenseal rhizomes.

Did you see the special deals on goldenseal rhizomes and ginseng rootlets that we are offering?

Johnny Crisson is a North Georgia medicinal herb grower who has been attending our workshops and conferences for years. This is his first year selling ginseng rootlets and goldenseal rhizomes. I am excited for him and his new business and he always says what a great resource our book Growing and Marketing Ginseng, Goldenseal, and Other Woodland Medicinals is. So, we have teamed up together to offer special deals on ginseng rootlets + a book or goldenseal rhizomes + a book. Read more about these specials by clicking on the appropriate tabs above.

Quick update on Our Tiny Farm

I have been focused on promoting my new book the past few months and have neglected providing photos and words about the farm. So here is a quick update. First, someone asked for a better picture of the horse we are boarding right now. So here is a picture of Teddy. He is a real sweetheart and gets along beautifully with all our animals. I hope he is here to stay for awhile!
I always feel an immense sense of relief when we get the hay put up for the winter. Last year the hay was awful; we had to do a lot of supplemental feeding to keep the weight on the animals, and we didn't do that well for the older horse. So it is wonderful to have good quality hay stacked up and ready to go.
The little donkeys definitely approve of the hay we purchased for the winter. Within an hour there wasn't a scrap to be found. Even with a pasture full of green grass, the donkeys prefer hay.
One of you asked for a close-up of Chester, so here you go. He is an adorable chocolate mini-donkey with a kinked little tail, a pot belly, and the biggest most expressive brown eyes I have ever seen. You can't help but to give this little guy a hug...which he likes very much.
Another one of you asked for a picture of the portable shelter we have for our steers. So here it is. As you can see, it is on skids. On the other end, there is a strap that we hook right up to the tractor and tow the shelter wherever we want it. The steers use it all the time all year long.
This was just a pretty day on the farm this summer so I took a shot of the barn with the mountains in the background. We are so blessed to live in this beautiful area.
Poppy settled into this giant mixing bowl on the computer hutch (it has been there for years, she just discovered it). It is now one of her favorite places to sleep. Cute.
These are beautiful sirloin roasts from our pasture raised Black Angus cattle. After a long slow roast in the oven, they made for a number of delicious meals.
One of the great delights of living on a small farm is all the fresh food on hand to create tasty meals, like this one.
