Living in the country and on a small Farm is a great way of life. I love it!

We have horses, a few cattle, dogs, and cats.

There is always something to do, we spend a lot of time outside. So sit back and enjoy the view " From My Front Porch"

Cowboy Campers

These are really Sheep Herders wagons. But Summer Vacation would be so much fun if you went camping in one of these. It would be the real west summer. 
Check out Hansen Wheel and Wagon  or the Tiny House these are the coolest sites

Hay Season

Growing all natural horse hay is a lot of work. Before it gets this tall you have to water it, we use wheel lines.

Then you cut it and let it dry, after it is cut, you let it dry for Three or four days then you have to turn it and let it dry for another two or three days. After it is all dry you then bale the hay.

Then you but it in stacks, after it is stacked, it must be covered so if it rains it won't get wet and mold. Moldy hay is not good for your horse or cattle.

When you need the hay you have to uncover it and load it on a truck and move it to where your horse or cattle are, (this is the hard part) cause then you have to unload it and re-stack it.

On any given day if you were sitting on my porch you could see my Dad, great grand Pa, my Mom and myself doing one of these things, Or we are feeding our horse and cattle.

Amazing Sunrises and Sunsets

Have you ever been out when the sun rises and sets? If you have, did ever wish you had a camera? Sometimes you do and sometimes you don't, and when you have it you forgot to take the picture. Well I have taken a few cool pictures from my porch.
Where I live the sky changes all the time. All you have to do is wait.
