Back Home

Well, just wanted to let everyone know that we just got back from Florida. Our family has been saving up for a trip to Disney for over two years, and we went last week. We had a wonderful trip, and the Lord blessed us with safety and a good time!
Iffen you would like to see some photos of our trip, just go here-- www.lifeondirtroad.blogspot.com

Now, when you get a family that is all excited, there are things said that are funny, ridiculous, foolish, senseless, or downright crazy. So it was with us.
Now some of these were much funnier at the time, but here are a few---

"They really salt these French fries. That's how they kill em'."
--Coley upon eating some very salty fries

"I went in the water, all the way around, and didn't even drown!"
--Makayla upon getting out of the swimming pool.

"It gets cheaper as the price goes up."
--Josh upon discussing how many jelly beans to buy

"It tasted like our bathtub smells."
--Josh talking about the drinking water

"Oh look! Homeschoolers!!
--Daddy upon seeing a school of fish in an aquarium

One thing that made me and Mama crack up was when one of the Disney cast members looked at me and said
"Hey! There's Pocahontas!"

And the one that just made the trip worthwhile----

Daddy--"Those bears are drowning."
Josh--" They deserve it."

They were discussing the gummy bears left over in a melted ice cream.

Well, I got a kick out of 'em anyway.

Hi Jess!
Thanks for following my blog:) I really enjoy reading yours. I just read your profile again, and it sounds like we have a LOT in common...ANIMALS:), herbs, gardening, living on 3 acres, and much more!!! Sometimes it seems like we're the only family in our area that love animals so much. So I am very, very glad to "meet" you, even though we don't live in the same state~
How many goats do you have? What breed(s)? We have 1 horse, 1 cow, 50-60 Isa Brown chickens, 6 goats - growing to 25 some, 2 dogs, 3 cats. In the summer 6 pigs. Goats are our favorite animal...we have Alpine and LaMancha, and we show them as well as do Raw Milk Shares with them. We strive to bred the best quality and are constantly working to improve every aspect of our goat management etc. I would be interested to hear what shots/vaccines you give your goats? Right now we're giving C,D&T, Pnemonia, Lysigin, Bo-Se, Vitamin A&D. That's all I think.
Anyways, I'll talk to you later.
God Bless,

Sure thing!!

I currently have six goats.

There is my Toggenburg "Virginny"
-the affectionate one

My Lamancha/Saanen "Bella"
-the antagonist

My Alpine cross "Beka"
-the curious adventurer

My Alpine cross "Lizzie"
-the sweet observer

My Alpine cross "Abel"
-the handsome one

And my little Toggenburg/Alpine "Mandie"
-the adorable kid

I currently have a flock of thirteen hens. Did have four roosters--but they were ummm...dispatched. I am getting more hens the first week of March, along with a small flock of red broilers. Hope to do turkeys soon.

I also have three rabbits (Holland Lops), five cats, and three dogs.

Have had a sheep, two horses, and a variety of little critters.

As for vaccines that I do on my goats, I only do the CD&T. I have done vitamins, though too.

Ohh--and I am teaching Beka and Abel to drive! Trying to at least. :)
