Tales of stunning sunsets, happy sheep, and peace and quiet on a 10-acre farm in Central Florida (soon to be Northeast Kansas).

Happy Thanksgiving!

Good food, family, and not taking things for granted.

Moving: Part II & Yoga With Cats

We are all moved! It's taken me a while to sit down and admit this as it's been "traumatic". I returned to Kansas with the last load on June 29, and we didn't finish unloading the truck until yesterday!

Trailering Horses Long Distance 101

The next morning she wouldn't load up. We tried everything including coercion, extortion, bribery, and asking nicely, for close to 8 hours. The horse would not go in.

Delivery! Ewes Go To Kansas

Toto, we're not in Florida anymore! The ewes have landed and have been taste-testing the grasses and weeds in Kansas for the last 10 days. They've also been through a really severe thunder storm already. We had 60-70 mph winds and a t-storm night before last. No hail, thankfully.

PermaNet Tryouts & Weed Wacking

Well, the weeds are growing fast now! Meanwhile, we just got 2 inches of rain, which we desperately needed for the grass as it was down to the quick! It's time for these ewes to do some weed wacking!

Hedgerows

Recently I've become fascinated by the British and their iconic hedgerows.

Finishing Projects

I admittedly have a track record of "finishing" projects 95% of the way before I move onto something else. As long as the product is functional, I always seem to get sidetracked from doing the finishing touches! I really want to curb that kind of behavior and really start finishing things 100%.

It’s Official…

Sandhill Flats Farm is moving: sheep, chickens, horse, cats, and all! The Husband got transferred to NE Kansas. We will start our farm move on or around June 1. It's always an adventure with this guy!

The Shearing is Done

I'm so excited - the shearing is all done! Yay! And now I have a mountain of fleece in my storeroom....
