I have been just awful about keeping up with this blog and I want to remedy that. I have been doing quite a bit of work since moving to Kentucky and keeping busy, thus the reason that I am behind on the blogging.
Christmas is quickly approaching and the business and the mini-farm are all growing, which is fantastic! I am booking new projects, getting new clients, and making new friends. I am excited about a few new ideas for the business and hope to reveal those to you guys soon.
As for the mini-farm, lets see…Vacation Home Farms currently has 20 chickens (6 breeds), 3 Nigerian Dwarf goats (one is pregnant), 4 Treeing Walker Coonhounds, and of course Dino is still here. Dino is our 8 year old Belgian Malinois and he is just a touch spoiled, but he has earned it. He is a retired war dog and served five years in Afghanistan. Maybe some day I will do a post to talk about him a little more, but for now he is sleeping at my feet and enjoying retirement. 🙂 This little guy is the first goat. His name is Hoss Cartwright and in this photo he is a few days shy of 7 weeks old. It was the day we picked him up. Since then twin sisters have been added to the farm and I think that officially makes it a herd. I call the girls the “sister wives”.
The black one is Calamity Jane and the other is Annie Oakley. Annie is pregnant, but the guy that had her before isn’t sure how far along she is. So, I’m thinking a nanny cam in the goat shelter may be in order. 🙂
The chickens are fun too, especially when they are tiny and you’re a photographer. 🙂 At this point, there are six different breeds and five different ages. The oldest ones should start laying eggs in March, until then they are all just a bunch of freeloaders. lol.
Stay tuned for new baby goats and of course photos. I have several photos shoots to share with y’all and items that will be up for sale as well. Have a great week!! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by,
