I have always had a passion for animals. I remember when I was a little girl, I would bring my dog Tiffany into my bedroom (even though I wasn’t suppose to) and close the door. I would tell her my most precious secrets. She would never tell a soul and would listen for hours. She loved me for me and never expected me to be anyone else. Tiffany was always happy to see me, regardless of my mood or how I looked. When I think back on my closest friends throughout school, Tiffany, my little black cock-a-poo, was at the top of my list.♥
For those of you who know me personally or have read my “Who Am I” page, you know it has always been a dream of mine to run a small farm. In March 2014, my dream became a reality. We broke ground for our barn and began building Indigo Acres. From that moment on, we have been actively “growing” our dream, making it a reality. I thought you might enjoy a little visual tour of our farm…
We have three members of our inside crew…Shadow, Merlin and Murphy
We have 6 very spoiled barn cats: Pumpkin, Tuck, Finn, Ozzy, Barbar and Leo. Leo loves that we grow cat nip in the garden and as you can see, she doesn’t like to share!
I love ducks! We currently have a flock of 22 quackers, consisting of khaki campbell, pekin, rouen and welsh harlequin. We are hoping to have ducklings from our welsh harlequins this season!
Lastly, are our Cornish Rock meat chickens. Sadly, we only have them for 8-9 weeks until they leave us for processing. During this time, we raise them as healthy as possible, knowing they will be nourishing our bodies. I love them while I have them…♥
My closing thoughts for you… Regardless if it is your career, hobby or passion, do it with love or not at all. Life is too short! (Maybe I feel this way because I am halfway to 90!) If you have a dream, do everything in your power to make it a reality. As Wifey always says, “The time it takes to do a job is the time you have to do it.” She might be too shy for photos, but she always has words of great wisdom! Make time today to do one thing that brings a smile to your face and joy to your heart.
Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…
