Fun in the barn

After spending some time playing in the snow, the family decided to go hang out in the barn and see how everyone was doing!

Dustin and our new ramb - Elvis
I love this little girl-love that face!

Cheese!  About two seconds after this was taken, it was discovered that she pooped on my glove and Dustin's new coat I was wearing! The joys of farm life!

Happy Valentines Day From Me to Ewe!

How is a girl with a sick husband and two sick girls at home supposed to celebrate Valentines day? Why in the barn of course!
Here are some pictures of the set of triplets that were born on Monday.
Olivia joined me in the barn for awhile-she loved holding onto this little guy!
Check out that lamb that was born Christmas Eve day! So big already!

It took me a lot of tries, but I finally got a picture of all three boys with their Mama!

First lambs of 2013

I had to share the following photos! On Christmas Eve day when Dustin went to do chores he got a suprise! One of the ewes had twin ewe lambs!  We were very excited, although we didn't expect any lambs for at least another two weeks! See, before we sold "Rambo" we put him in with the ewes for two weeks, not really expecting "anything" but it looks like he did his thing!

The following photo shows the "rouge hen" that has taken to living with the lambs.  Even after trying to relocate her to the hen house, she keeps going down to the barn to mingle with the ewes!

The following photo I took in November, I came home from work one day to literally find the lambs grazing in my front lawn! Aparently my husband and hired man thought this would be a GREAT use of grass! Thanks guys!

Harvest 2012

We are off and going!  We officially started harvest 2012 last Thursday, September 20th.  So far, Dustin is "optimistic" about the harvest, as early yields are higher than he anticipated.  Here's hoping for a bountiful and safe harvest!

Having the two new bins is allowing our harvest to speed right along as we are no longer waiting for trucks!

Catching on the run

Ready for SPRING

We are ready for spring at Johnson Family Farms!

Olivia feeding one of the ewe's who we hope lambs soon!

Daddy brought in one of our "foster chicks" for the girls to look at.

We will hopefully have our own chicks in a month or two, but for now we are housing about 33 babies for a friend.
