We’ve been having some promiscuity problems at the farm this year. First, we had feral cats all over the place. Now, we’re just down to 2 because we caught some kittens and had them fixed. My favorite of those cats, Mr., went missing some months ago. I really miss him because 1) he was a mouse/mole slayer extraordinaire and 2) he really liked me and was so friendly to everyone he encountered. Look where that got him. So, now we’re just down to 2 cats that hate people and don’t put the hurtin’ on the mouse population that Mr. did.
Then, Miles, our hereford bull, saw greener pastures (he he) one day when a tree fell on the fence separating our beef cows from our Jerseys.

Now, we have these:
They’re little squirrly, wiggly things that make blurry pictures. They were just born yesterday. With all the other things that the farmer has had going, he never even realized his coon dog was in heat until he saw the neighbor’s male coon dog hanging around. He got lucky and so did we, in a way, because they just so happen to be purebred Walker puppies. They are so cute, too. I can’t wait for them to get a little older so Peanut can play with them. (Apparently, you can’t fix coon dogs or you run the risk of taking away their desire to hunt. This is yet one more thing I’ve learned since I came to the farm. The farmer usually locks her in the trailer when she’s in the puppy-making way so things like this don’t happen.)
Look at this adorable lil’ thing!
These are new additions that never come as surprises.
