Day 44-46

Y’all, we have been off-grid a few days living farm life.

There is no way I can catch up on all that we have seen, heard, felt, smelled, eaten, drank, done, and learned these last few days.

I’ll try to remember a few highlights to catch up a little.

Some of you thought we felt off the west coast somewhere since I haven’t blogged in a few days, but I assure you we are alive and well!

Spending 3 days on Da-Le Ranch was an experience of a lifetime.

Living and working with all the animals on top of a mountain with nothing but the sound of bleeting sheep, mooing cows, honking geese, growing roosters, quacking ducks, clucking turkeys, and snorting pigs.

It was awesome.

We fed a new born calf and helped it learn to nurse.

We milked a cow

We did farm chores and drove the Kubota all over the mountain.

We learned to tell the difference between six different kids of eggs; chicken, quail, guinea, turkey, duck , and goose.

We ate a goose egg!

Check out the duck with the human hair knot. 🤣

I learned how to and helped build a hoop garden.

We ate delicious fresh grilled pork from pigs raised on the farm.

We learned how to make home made nut butter.

The girls fed, held and played with baby lambs.

Mimi learned to drive the Kubota

And I took some Dramamine and we did a little wild 4 wheeling.

I even helped put a uterus back into a sheep who had prolapsed.

The girls were surrounded by animals and are in love with farm life now.

What an unforgettable few days we had. Thank you Da-Le Ranch for being such amazing hosts.
