Who or What is She?

  • She calls herself Lauren but is also known as Mom, Gramma, Lar, and, once upon a time, Peach.
    An ex-suburbanite who moved to the wilds of the Sonoran Desert and decided to raise fiber animals, fowl creatures, 3 halflings, and one pint-sized farmer without a clue as to how. Join Lauren as she learns how to file alpaca teeth, shear a horny goat, raise 3 teenagers and 1 grandchild while cooking dinner and doing the laundry with her other six arms.

Thank you for the updated pics! They do grow up so fast. The way he sleeps, Zorro must think he is one of the dogs!
Yay monsoon!


I was just wondering what Meat Goat Chemo is? I love your baby turkey so much! He should be the poster boy for vegetarianism.


After agreeing that Zorro indeed does a "dead-on" (ha! get it?) rubber chicken impersonation, I'm here to be practical. Has Daisy been dewormed? If she acts fine but is getting thin, that would be my first thought. Secondly, Darby's horns look like they are pointing towards his neck at the tips. Keep an eye on them, and check Lois Moore's blog for a very good illustrated essay on horns ( I was surprised to see how wideset horns can be and STILL not turn out "safe." It's all in the direction those tips eventually take....

Frozen towels sound like a great idea to keep your cool while getting much needed "sheep therapy." Like every other "mental health medication," after we go off it we rarely realize why we are struggling so, because the mood shift comes on gradually and subtly. Should I ask you if you are getting your RDA of "farm" when you start sounding blue? Anything to help!
