This is your last post for the school year. I’ll keep posting during the summer if you want to stop by and visit the blog to see what is going on.
I looked through all the questions you sent and picked some that I haven’t answered yet.
We only have one cow. Her name is Echo. We’ve had other cattle (that’s the fancy name for cows) but they were all steers, Echo is our first girl cow.
|This is my favorite picture of Echo.
|Remi is the dark steer on the left.
You can read a little more about Remi here.
|This is Dinner and one of the goat kids.
He loved hanging out with the baby goats!
You can read a little more about him here.
|This is Darcy. He died a few years ago.
He was a very sweet bunny and we took good care of him when he got sick.
We don’t have bunnies any more.
|Yes! We have fun in the fall. We work hard in the fall, too!
|Sometimes we just like to be silly!
That’s fun, too!
I don’t know! We might get a girl sheep if Stew dies or goes to a new home. We usually only have one sheep at a time. They have to be friendly so people can pet them.
Stew is happy, and friendly. He likes hanging out with the boy goats.

We don’t know exactly how old Clover is. We got her when Matt was in 5th grade. She showed up in front of our barn with two goat kids. When we found out who owned her we told them that they should make their fences stronger because Nubian goats LOVE to figure out how to get out of fences.
The nice man asked if we wanted to keep her so he didn’t have to fix his fences.
We did, and we’ve been so happy that she has been part of the herd! She has been part of the herd since 2006. She was at least 4 years old when she came to us. That means she is about 15 years old.
|This is Clover a few years after we got her.
Ginger is the other goat. She died a few years ago.
We still miss her.
|Here’s a funny picture of Clover.
She’s a silly goat!
I hope you get to visit some fun places. Here’s a post about Flat Stanley when he came to visit our farm a long time ago.
