Cool days and lots of rain has quickly turned to hot and muggy summer days. The grassy pastures and all kinds of babies are growing up too quickly. Almost all of the goatie kids have gone to their new homes, enjoying their new human kids and learning to become show goats.
The calves are in the pastures running and playing, sleeping and eating... enjoying life. Baby chicks and guinea keets are scratching at bugs and exploring under the watchful eyes of momma hens.
Everything is growing like crazy! Flowers are in bloom, the garden is busy keeping us in veges, the yard needs mowing weekly... Ahh... Wonderful Summer!!!
The barn is up and on it's way to being finished. That may take a while :P. It will be nice to actually have a horse barn and be able to keep the equine up and available when we want to ride or work with them. We're looking forward to that eventually.
Summer, of course, means relaxing a little, visiting with family and friends, cooling off in the pool and lots of barbecuing! We hope everyone is enjoying their summer time. :)
Russell Ranch is located in beautiful NE Oklahoma, just a few miles from the Illinois river in Green Country. There are lovely rolling hills, lots of wonderful lakes and rivers, and forests full of wildlife.
