Hello and Welcome, Jenny :)

Well done upon raising and homeschooling your grandson; I was raised and homeschooled by my grandparents and it has been one of the greatest blessings of my life.

Yes, please do post a photo of your animals!

Have fun on the forums,

hi all thanks for lovely welcome and yes I will post ohotos when I figure out how to. We now have 6 broody hens, help! how do I stop them? We sell eggs as we get them. Our 3 goats are boers who came with the property, pets. We are getting saanen, cant wait! We just had japanese daughter-in-law here. She was amazed at our animals. She only sees them in a zoo or as a meat pack. We were told too old at 60 to start farming. Good to hear from the old bugger! Regards jenny
