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.

More Animals (Like You Needed to See More!)

I don't think my heart could have handled that, either. I do hope the transition is easier when they can face the big scary outdoors together as a threesome....


Will I am sorry work??? And a huge THANK YOU for taking Magic. But she is an adorable duck and you are such a wonderful person to love all of your animals and care for them the way you do. Giant hugs,


I think you may have hit on a strategy with the Three Duckateers. Magic just doesn't know she's a duck. Now she'll know. But she'll never forget the pool, I bet. I wouldn't. :D

PS Bleeding Heart Farmer Syndrome is why I could never have that many animals. I go nuts over my cats!


Hi Lauren!

I faithfully read the blog everyday and love the updates on Magic. I am so amazed at how big she is! Beckah has been checking in as well. She says she misses her, but is glad she is helping you feel better while you have been sick. The story of the indoctrination attempt is so sweet. Seriously, could we have picked a more heavenly placed for a duck to live? Hope you are doing well!


Well, I pray the three-some will do a better job of integrating themselves into the group foul/fowl group. Blessings on you for your sensitivity. Magic surely could never have found a better home.


I don't have a computer but do check in when I can from work. I'm Bekah's Mom, the crying fool that came to your home while bringing Magic. With tears in my eyes, I have to tell you how grateful I am for you and your kind spirit. We love this little duck and still miss her. Thank you for being who you are. We are always thinking of you.

Poor Magic. Bring him back in, poor fella. LOL
