A Soft Spot For Strays

If there's anything that I will be quick to admit to, the fact that I have a soft spot for stray animals will be the one that I will admit to first. That's just the way I am. I can't help it.There's not many stray dogs in the neighborhood, but there's always a stray cat or two that comes ...

You’re My Best Friend

In the beginning of time when God created the animals, He gave to them a "herd" instinct that drew them together. Sheep and birds "flock" together. Other animals form a herd or colony or pack. Baboons even come together as a "congress." (That gives food for thought...) Sometimes, animals form ...

The Life of Cats

Perhaps it's just me, but being related to farmers, or at least coming from a farm family, can give you a unique outlook on life. Or, at least it differs somewhat from someone who has never experienced farm life. I can't say that I know everything that a farm kid does; however, even though I ...

Dogs vs. Cats

Which makes the better pet, dogs or cats? That has been an ongoing dispute for what seems like forever. Some love cats and hate dogs. Others love dogs and hate cats. I can't pick a side. I love them both.Buddy and JakeFor me, I really don't have a preference. I love the companionship of a cat ...

A Proper Introduction

Our Old Place Farm didn't start out as a farm; it started with one horse and some barn cats! The barn cats had kittens before I could catch them and that is when the growth began. One kitten remained and has grown into a beautiful adult plus the two original farm cats. One day a skinny stray ...

Crafting at Nana’s Ranch

It's still hot outside, but there's something in the air that's telling my brain, "It's time to stock up for winter!" Since I have suffered a 100% fail in the garden and orchard this year (thanks to the ground squirrels, gophers, deer, and rabbits), all of our winter food will come from the ...

Follow the Leader

The other outhouse that I remember fondly, is the one on a small farm where we lived for a short time. We had two mother cats with assorted kittens, and they always would follow anyone whenever we walked out to the outhouse, walking in a row behind us like a parade. If we stayed in it too long, ...

Pleased To Meet You

Hi there. Pleased to meet you. I’m the Fearless Farm Frau (AKA the Crazy Chicken Lady), and it’s been quite a journey to get here. I’d shake your hand, but I’m not at your computer, and asking you to shake your computer sounds like quite an imposition. However, if you were to offer ...
