The dirt at Yeehaw?

The following was supposed to be the Yeehaw Farm October newsletter which never was distributed to our members. Sorry about that. As promised in the November newsletter, here it is. A bit late.
Howdy! ...Read Full Post »

What's this? Another post in a two day period? You will have to forgive me. I have had a cold/flu for several days now and I am deliriously bored. I have tried sleeping (tired of that, yes, pun intended) and watching tv (one can only watch so much iceskating and motorcross before that's gets really old.) I started to read a couple different books but haven't found a book that keeps my attention for long. I have found that I can occupy my time spent resting in bed by...Read Full Post »

Remember Mennie from the last blog post? This is Mennie all grown up, with baling twine, corn cobs, cob webs and blood running down her head. What the heck did we do to her? No, it wasn't some type of satanic ritual. We cut Mennie's horns off.
When Tommy bought Mennie as a little heifer calf, it was a bit hectic on the farm that summer. Fast forward over two yea...Read Full Post »

Remember this girl? I have a photo of her in our farm photos that I posted two years ago. I believe the caption says something like, "A future dairy cow?" Well, guess what? Two years later...she is a milk producing cow on Yeehaw Farm. Her name is Mennie. Yeah...I know...that's an odd name for a cow....Read Full Post »

I usually try to keep my blog posts upbeat and positive but this one? I will be upfront about it; it's a bummer post.
So, everyone knows the story that Cranky always said that if we had to milk cows to keep farming, well, we weren't going to farm. I just love reminding him of that now false statement...every chance that I can. That's why I bring it up so often.
Who is Cranky, you ask? Cranky is my husband, my partner in this marriage, the man that I started dating I was 16 y...Read Full Post »

Since I am such an unbelievably organized person, I have already decided on my 2012 New Year's Resolution. (Cough, gag, sputter...what? Organized? Me? Hardy har, har! Obviously, my true calling is a comedian, instead of a farmer.) So, anyway, what was I talking about? Oh, yeah. Right. My New Year's Resolution.
Keep in mind that I don't normally make New Year's Resolution because 1. I don't keep them. 2. I think they are silly. Why wait until the start of a new year to beg...Read Full Post »

As I sit here at my computer keyboard, I have a million other tasks that need to be started, or completed. Like my Christmas tree as it sits in my living room, undecorated, leaning cock eyed in old stainless steel milker bucket. I really should take the time to at least string some lights on it. Maybe I will get to it...maybe I won't. Or my mountain of laundry that never ends. I should really take ...Read Full Post »

And here I am, deferring you to my other personal blog because...well...I don't really have a good reason. Check out http://cheesychick.wordpress.com for my latest blog entry.
I'm not sure exactly what I have been doing that I don't have time to post a blog on here but it seems that I just don't have time. Truth is, I don't use my time wisely. I would much rather sit on my bum and eat my bon-bons. (My favorite thing to do in li...Read Full Post »

So, here I am at a crossroads, so to speak. I need to blog on this website to keep it fresh and so you know what's going on at Yeehaw Farm. But I already have another personal blog which I updated yesterday (1/10/10). I can't think of any new material to blog about today. You see, my brain is mush. I'm tired and I have a lot to do today...half of which is not going to get done anyway.
So, what do I do? Do I continue ...Read Full Post »

Twin lambs born on Yeehaw Farm (1/22/14)
As you can see from the photo, lambing season has started on Yeehaw Farm. As I type this, only three ewes have lambed but we are patiently waiting for the rest of the girls to get busy and push those babies out. Also expected to make appearances soon are kid goats. We haven’t had baby goats on Yeehaw Farm in almost two years as we didn’t get one goat last kidding season. The previous fall, our buck goat developed...Read Full Post »
