Happy Thanksgiving!! Just a little post to give thanks for some of the things in my life!

I’m thankful for goats! Never thought I’d be a crazy goat lady, but I love them!!

They teach me much about life, and I enjoy having the chance to learn from having these critters on our ranch.

I’m thankful for this fuzz-head! Even though he is still a huge work in progress, he’s got a loving personality and I’m confident will be a useful part of our Ranch one of these days. He takes his responsibility of protecting all of us (minus maybe the fowl) very seriously and has developed a full, deep bark that warns off any unwelcome things. People who come to the house stay respectfully out of the fence when Thor is in the yard, and that makes me feel secure. πŸ˜‰

The Guineas. Honestly I’m not sure how thankful I am for these birds. πŸ˜‰ Ha! They are noisy and ridiculously unintelligent, but they are kinda fun to have around. I’m not sure how they will ultimately fit into our Ranch, but for now they are keeping themselves occupied by flying out of the chicken run and not being able to figure out how to get back in. Yeah, I guess I’m thankful for them too!

I’m thankful for this 4-legged friend as well. He’s had his dippy moments, but he’s a fun pal to have around. He’s been with us for as long as our kids can remember, so he’s getting up there in doggie years, but still bounds around like a pup sometimes. Dogs are a necessary part of any Ranch, in my opinion. πŸ™‚

I’m really thankful for our flock!! I’m also thankful that they are a little safer now behind 2 fences from where the coyotes like to roam! Hopefully we will have far fewer casualties this winter! It takes more feed to keep them in the run, but I think we make up for it in the long run by keeping the layers alive!

And I’m super-duper thankful for the gifts they leave us on a daily basis! Plus, such pretty colors! I admit it, I’m totally obsessed with pretty eggs!

I’m very thankful for this place we get to live! I’m thankful for my Family, my great God and salvation through Jesus! There’s so many things to be thankful for! I hope that you are surrounded by loved ones and the things that you are most thankful for!
