I am not sure where the rest of the fall went after August, but here we are in Winter and 2018! Our lovely Scottish Highland bull Arturo, did find a lovely new pasture to make beautiful babies! We trust he is doing well in Yakima, Washington. The farm is doing well this winter and the animals are enjoying not being in 3 feet of snow! We did get one storm come through, but only produced about 6 inches of lovely light, fluffy snow!
We also added a few more pigs to our mix – a breeding pair Nora and Chester; acquired a new breeding ram for our sheep and reduced the number of ewes this year; We also gained a foster cat – Muffles (shown checking out Nora below and snuggling with his buddy Poco)! Whew!
Ophelia (Jenny x Mahia Love) – born in 2017, will be growing up at Balanced Earth Farm for potential breeding 2018 or 2019!
Finally, we also had a hen decide that October was the perfect time to hatch out that clutch of chicks she’d been wanting all year! On the night of a predicted 4″ of rain – she came out with her babies, proud as can be!
