Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Milk Mustache

This is for my pal, B, who sends me encouraging emails. Thanks buddy! At your request.....today we have...

... the milk mustache...

Hey! Is this thing on?

Gettin' some sips from the tap...


Look! Its live action!

Zander's cuteness has grown exponentially....especially since he's been helping me with the milking. "Helping" is a big word for sitting at my feet and begging me to squirt some of the goat's milk into his little mouth. Its hilarious.

The pup's little eyes nearly bugged right out of his head the first time he saw Debbie's huge milk bag. I'm not sure how he recognized her as a milk source, but he tried to latch right away. She's a good sport but not THAT good. The pup has razor sharp teeth and really really strong jaws. So I put him out of grabbed him before he got to Debbie and sat him at my feet. I thought it would be funny if I squirted a stream of milk at him - and he immediately started drinking it all up! So he's my milking buddy. Of course, this will have to come to an end soon. But we are loving every second of his puppyness.

Happy Wednesday everyone! Any body else got a milking buddy like this?

That is quite possibly one of the cutest things I have ever seen....you made my son's day. We lost one of our original hens today and he was really upset but that video got tons of giggles from him! Miss your stories hon, I'll be glad when we can talk again! *hugs* give that puppy a big fat kiss for me!

We took down 7 big trees today, 3 cords cut and piled up for next year and at least 3 maybe 4 to go...tomorrows task. My back aches, I got bruises up and down my right arm, and I'm sitting here with a cold Blue Boar beer and a big smile on my face...thanks for cheering me up with that video.:) What a lucky puppy.

Thanks, Anon, for letting me the vid worked! Whoot! How fun is having a youtube channel? hee hee hee

Dave, I'm telling you its tough. I get things done 5 minutes at a time but the cuteness vortex that is that pup has me completely sucked in.

Resistance is completely futile, Coco... you said it!

Thanks Lori, I'm giving him big smooches!

Hi drypond! Love the pix of your hens, btw.

Wow, Mr H, thats a lot of work - glad I could give you some grins. We think we're the lucky ones with this little pup.

Thanks THT! Its just hilarious to have him at my feet like that.

Thanks Contadina - I hope he still loves us when he's a big star.. hee hee hee
