|Remi is getting bigger! We had to get a larger halter for him. This one is a bit too big, but I’m sure it won’t be long before it fits him.

There’s something calming about tending livestock. It makes life so ‘real’ for me. It’s such a grounding feeling to go out each morning and come in with milk and eggs.
It’s pleasant to hear the cows mooing, the chicks peeping, the sheep and goats bleating, and the turkeys gobbling. It takes some effort, but I work at letting all those sounds drown out the sounds of the cars, trucks, and sirens that are blaring from the highway that is only three houses away.
It’s a little bit of heaven here, and a lot of work!
