Thursday May 6th, today is a special family day. Its my twins birthday, Happy Birthday boys, 35 years old and the other side of the Atlantic . I'm very proud of you and your own little families. Today is also Quests ( our younger shire horse) birthday. He was born 5 years ago here on the ranch. His name is sort of special (as is he). When my mum, Bridget (Bridie) passed away she left me a little money and we used a little of that money to breed Lady to an old English Shire. When he was born, we called him Bridies Bequest in her memory. I'm going to use this blog to mention the many family and friends that have helped here on the farm since we got here 5 years ago. Gregs family and mine have been amazing and have played a part in making this Ranch what it is and what it is becoming. Thank you all, too many to mention- but special mention to Gregs Mom who, at nearly 90 comes from Albuquerque and cleans out the chicken house de-poops the cows field and and makes feeds for the animals.( she cooks great cookies too !!!) We love you all. Our friends, some of whom have been working through their own tradgedies and difficulties have always been there for us. Thank you all, so much...We couldn't have made it without you. Changing the subject, The chickens all made it and for my sleepless night they made a break for it yesterday. Actually it was quite funny, chicks running all over the place and Greg chasing them with a catch net ! Its nearly time to go down to the barn, we have a coach load of ladies (75 I think )coming tomorrow on a visit. Looking forward to meeting them all. Take care everyone, bye for now. M
