The residents (minus 1) at the Shepherds farm

Here are my kiddos (Silas might as well be mine :) and one of our Scottish Blackface Sheep...her name is Flora.

Here are our three Scottish Blackface sheep.  They will be bred, Lord willing, next fall.  Here are their names from front to back...Flora, Fernie, and Juice.  I let my nephew Silas have one and he got to name her.  Apparently, it was between Juice and Pancake...and you know which one he chose.   Silly boy!
(We also have a Holstein/Angus cross steer named Gus, but I don't have a picture of him.  Sorry.)

The kids after we finished picking walnuts from our tree.  So much fun.  And here's our dog Franco.  He's an American Staffordshire Terrier.  He is an absolute sweetheart and a ninny.  He doesn't take good pictures because he doesn't much care for the flash.  Oh, well!

Our cat Frances.  She is a feisty one and this is the best picture I have of her.  I am sure there will be more to come.

And last but not least, here's me and my hubby Seth.  He is the best husband and I am blessed by the Lord to be his wife.  <3

Since I am starting this blog, I figure I should give a run down of who lives here and so I can look back in years to come and see how we started.  We are blessed by God to get to start this farm and if it is His will to bless it's progress then, Lord willing, there will be more to come!


  1. I wanted to comment on the picture of your children with the walnuts. My wife and I have two american staffordshires, (aka pitbulls), on our little "farm". They truely are amazing, gentle creatures. In fact, one of ours looks very similar to yours. Also, I'd love to see a post that highlights your home, land, and animals. I'm always curious to see how much land and what type of animals others have.

  2. My husband and I had a black and white staffy before I had my son, but he died of heat stroke. It gets incredibly hot where we live. Hard lesson and we loved our dog. Once we had Jude and Ella we really wanted another one and found Franco. He is so good with the kids and is sweet as can be. It's hard getting others over the stigma of a pit bull, but everyone that has met him instantly sees that he is a normal dog. And pretty too! I will get some more pictures up soon of our husband and I bought and remodeled our house 6 months ago. You'll love the before and afters. Thanks for posting!!!


Have a seat, enjoy the conversation, and welcome to the farm.
