What’s Two More, Really?

“You cause the grass to grow for the livestock and plants for man to cultivate, that he may bring forth food from the earth.” – Psalm 104:14 On “The-Books” a few days ago, a friend (who also works at my Vet’s office) posted a photo of two pigs that had escaped their home and had to be corralled.  I thought, “awwww, cute pigs.”   Little did I know that, in less than forty-eight hours, those “cute pigs” would be making their way to the farm.  Have I mentioned I am a pushover for a sad story?

We Bought A Farm, Part I

For those who may not know, we own a farm(ette).  When we purchased the property with a 130+ year old abandoned farmhouse, we were not thinking about farming, or animals, or any of the things you associate with farms.  We were thinking about saving a piece of history.   It was a long journey as we did most of the work ourselves but, in the end, it was so worth the effort. About a year after we had moved in, we were made aware of two goats that were in someone’s front yard, in a small area without grass, tied to...
