Of Course I Wrote a Dan Book

When the Safer at Home orders came down, some people asked me, “Are you going to write another book during all of this free time?” And I was really annoyed, because I didn’t have any more free time! I have a child, and it was spring, and I had to make lunch a lot. But… Read more »

  • Mid Week Pick-Me-Up

  • I’ve posted and deleted this so many times. I don’t know if I should admit this, but maybe there’s some explanation I’m not thinking of, maybe I’m not going crazy or maybe I shouldn’t share this   I don’t know I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know. Why. I can’t see myself in… Read more »

  • The Crack in the Universe

    A bit of a dramatic title! B found a crack in the yard yesterday, out in the pasture, and it goes on forever. It’s the one spot in the pasture that hasn’t flooded, even though it’s a low spot, and it’s flooding everywhere here, lately. A little dry crack in the ground. It’s like a… Read more »

  • Teaching Lambs to Use Gates (Shepherding the Modern Way, Instructional Tape 1.)

    In this shepherding demonstration, I utilize voice command to teach lambs how to walk through a gate by telling them to “Go through the doors,” or “use the gate, Lambicans,” in a highly exasperated tone. When their performance is not satisfactory, I let them know by saying, “Seriously? You don’t see that?” because everyone knows… Read more »

  • Lambing Unwillingly

    We have had so many lambs! Nine lambs, now, alive and well, though some of their mothers seem unfit and insane. This is Corvette. Corvette always jumps the fence, and I had decided to never breed her, because as cute as it is to see a sheep gracefully hop a fence, like a dream sheep… Read more »

    Life and Death on the Farm

    That little unexpected lamb died, after he caught a chill. Zanimal and I spent about eight hours trying to warm him up the next day, but he died, anyway. We were all very sad about it. If only the weather weren’t so cold, but what can you do? We weren’t expecting a lamb at all…. Read more »
