Blue Heelers Love To Swim- Go Jasper!!!

Some people know them as blue heelers, others call them Australian cattle dogs. Either way, our dog Jasper can never get enough of swimming and playing catch. He's not really that interested in bringing it nicely back like a retriever but, he'll sure chase and catch anything you throw to him. He has a lot of energy and this is a great way to tire this puppy out. He's about 14 months old now. Super smart and always surprising to see his new funny antics. It didn't take him long to help with the new herd of sheep. Eagerly, he waits and looks for instruction to direct where we want the sheep to go graze in a new pasture.. Really..he's an amazing dog and we're so grateful to have him on the farm.

Fun day at the gym catching a little speed bag workout with Dad. Takes a bit of adjusting to use someone elses equipment but, we made it work and had a lot of fun. A great cardio workout and really helps with strength and your hand and eye coordination. Check it out!

Welcome to our new Blog!

One of the greatest joys we have living in the mountains is that we can enjoy the beauty of our natural surroundings. There's a certain pleasure in the simplicity that life offers when you live far from town. The sweet sounds of the different birds early in the morning. Or, maybe it's the cows, horses, and dogs from a neighboring farm that echo through the valley The bright crow of the rooster or soft cooing of mama hen as the sun begins to rise. As I begin this new blog, I'm thinking of some of the things that have made this life enjoyable. Perhaps it will give you a chance to escape to a different time or place. Even if for a moment, maybe you can find that memory of camping, or perhaps a weekend stay in a log cabin. Maybe you used to live in the country and this awakens those memories and the life you long to return to. Just imagine if you didn't need to wear a watch. Cell phones don't work because there are no cell towers anywhere close. Time to disconnect. Just sit back, relax on the rocking chair on the porch, watch and listen. See how the day unfolds. Coffee is brewing and wafting through the window. It's time to go to that peaceful place.
