Good bye city life! Our family designed and built an industrial but old fashioned farmhouse on nine acres. Now we are building our homestead ~ or is it building us? Grab your boots and join us on our journey to country living.

Shearing Day


This weekend we had our annual shearing party.
Lots of friends came out to help and play.  We broke up into teams and worked the animals through.

deworming

hoof trimming (the Dr. had to take a call. haha!)

skirting the fleece

and vaccinations.

And it was all happening at the same time.
Everyone did a great job especially since they were all non-farming friends!


Ecclesiastes 4:9
Two are better than one, 
because they have a good return for their labor.
