Newest Addition!


Poco Pennington: Poco for short. His name seemed fitting, considering.

House Fire: Farm on Temporary Hold

We had a house fire back on April 26th, and we have been quite busy. Things will be settling down soon. At that time, I will be processing this years fleece and posting them on our etsy store. The available lambs, ewe and ram, will have updated photos posted with prices as soon as possible.
Thank you all for understanding.

A few Ram Lambs!


Just a few of the boys.


Can you tell these two are twins: clones of their daddy, Israel! Their horns are looking great and their fleece is just as sweet!
These are a couple of ram lambs we are keeping our eyes on for potential breeding stock for this next fall - They will be available FOR SALE!

MiaKoda in all his splendor

videoI'm just now weaning him, he's not that happy being out of sight of momma. I think she just walked behind the grain bin. She's all about the eating without him on her (she's on vacation)!

We have EGGS!

We have added hens to our little farm. Since we brought them home, we've been getting 2-3 eggs every day! We get green, brown, and white eggs (of all sizes). I think we'll add more hens in the near future. They are so much fun to watch.

Momma and Crew


I think Koda is getting use to all different types of farm animals. He seems to be quite content in this winterfest.

Koda is now 6 months old, and lookin' good!!!



Medichi and Koda are hanging out with Bandit (one of our Ram Lambs)
