Bella’s Back!

A constant here at the farm is sweet Bella. She is Ginger’s girl. Ginger has missed her so! Ok Bella – Let’s get Ginger back in shape. Can you spot Bella in one of these photos?




Last week our Cinnamon was a sick girl with an abscess in her back right foot and a horrible respiratory infection. Thanks to Dr. Dunlap and lots of antibiotics she is on the road to being well again.


You may of missed this…

Because it was in October!  I still look at these images and can’t believe this kid is as old as he is.  Love you Henry T!!



Two buddies and my view today.
