Big Momma is Saved!!!

     Big Momma had not laid an egg in months and was slated to be put to better use. However, she just laid two eggs in two days. She is the only one left to lay brown eggs, so we know that it was her. So she will be around a while longer.

Network for Good

     Though we had a great year for fund raising, we have realized that we need to “up our game” if we are to reach our goal of purchasing our land. So we have decided to purchase specific integrated fund raising software through a company named “Network for good”. This is going to allow us to streamline and organize our contacts, donors and finances which will allow us to reach our goal as well as give us more time in the field.

Nala Training

    Nala is now 70 lbs! She is now at the point where we are able to leave her out of her pen and in the yard all day. (even when we leave the property) Unlike our other dogs, she only barks to alert us of a visitor. 
    She is getting better in the pasture with the chickens. She is still not ready to leave her alone with them yet. She still has a desire to play with them and herd them. Because she does not know her own size and strength, she might hurt them inadvertently. Training to continue.....

Carburetor Needed

Ordered new carburetor 

     Even after rebuild, carburetor is still flooding. As it turns out, the carburetor for this tractor is obsolete. So, the rebuilt parts that they send out will never match completely which is why I believe it will keeps flooding. So I made the decision to purchase a néw comparable carb. It is on order.

Nala Training

     Nala is learning at lighting speed. Much of this is credited to Rosy (our border collie) who has become a great teacher. She is currently 45 pounds and gaining fast. She is finished with all of her Vet Shots and ready to begin her integration with the chickens.
