How do you have fun on a Saturday night!? Apparently we show clip goats and trim hooves at 9pm. 🤷♀️ the work never ends and at least it’s cool at the moment. #Hustle #work #VelociraptorRanch
Sometimes farming isn’t about cute babies and fun. Sometimes it’s gritty, sad and dirty. Sometimes it’s doing everything you and good friends can think of to save a favorite bird. Sometimes it’s putting a peahen in your kid’s bathtub because you don’t know where else to put her. Sometimes it’s feeding that bird watery gruel via syringe 27 times a day, and throwing whatever medicines you can think of at her… just hoping you can save her. but in the back of your mind, knowing that the time to give up is approaching. This isn’t always a fun life. It’s a daily struggle to make the best decisions possible for all of the lives in your hands. Today, farming is rough.
The cows need socialization and to learn to walk on a lead, so I bought them halters. They look fabulous! Hot, screaming pink for Bubbles and a nice red for handsome Porter.
The bacon seeds are getting bigger and are very pleased with their mud. 😍
Blues and Blacks are all that is left. All the splashes have gone to their new homes. Blue Laced Red Wyandotte chicks are pretty adorable.
Velociraptor Ranch Merica placed second in her breed class and the Jr. Ranch manager placed 4th in showmanship today at our local 4H fair. We are excited to see where this doe goes from here. #yearling #firstfarmbred #VelociraptorRanch #showfamily
The first round of Blue Laced Red Wyandotte chicks have hatched! If you were waiting for this hatch, chicks will be ready to go on Friday. Chicks go in pairs, strait run. First come, first serve. As long as I have the variety you can choose blue, black or splash chicks. Message us to set up a time to come pick yours up!
Trinity Ranch Lucy Lu delivered gorgeous twin doelings for us tonight. Sire is Desert Diamond True Grit. Both are retained. Those milk drunk faces though! We are in LOVE! #nubiangoats #ADGA #purebreed #amazing #VelociraptorRanch
Our sebastapol pair were hand raised. You can tell by how easygoing and sweet they are. This is the goose, on a nest of eggs. She is the sweetest thing ever. 💗
What are you doing today? Oh nothing much, just watching a doe on the camera from the parking lot of the orthodontist. 🙄🙄 they wait for you to have a busy day and then they decide that is the BEST time. 🤦♀️🤦♀️ little does she know, friends are close and on call. 🤣
