Stew

Welcome back!

One animal from the farm that you haven’t met is Stew.

He’s a Navajo Churro sheep. We bottle fed him when he was a lamb. He is so friendly that we kept him.

This is Stew!
He’s the only sheep we have.
He loves people.
He comes right up to people so he can get pet and scratched on his cheeks.


He gets sheared every spring. His fleece grows long all year, but its too heavy and hot for him to have all summer. Imagine wearing your winter coat all summer long. That’s what it’s like if a sheep has his fleece all summer long.

When we have a lot of milk we skim the cream and make butter.
This is what butter made from cow’s milk looks like.
This is what butter made from goat’s milk looks like.
I made cookies from this butter and they were some of the best cookies ever!

Do you remember the chicken that was sitting on eggs last week? Did you figure out the date that the chicken eggs would hatch?

They should hatch out around 19 November. When will you get to see pictures of them?

Quin and Xander had a sleepover last week.
Quin likes to stay in the house when we do chores,
but Xander loves to come help me milk Echo and the goats.
He sits on top of the hay stack until Echo is all hooked up. 
Morning chores are a lot of work!
Sometimes Xander needs a nap when we’re done.
Sometimes I need a nap when I’m done!

A few weeks ago I showed you some pictures of some sewing and embroidery projects I was working on. Here is the girl wearing her beautiful dress! I did the embroidery and her mother did all the sewing. She did all the dancing and won a ribbon!
She loves her dress!
We’re all so proud of how well she danced and the ribbon she won!
She has been dancing and practicing and working hard so she could compete.
All her hard work payed off.
It was wonderful to be a small part of her team.
I hope you have a great week! Enjoy the beautiful weather!
