Our tasks are many and blessing as well. My husband, Scott and I have always enjoyed our animals. We have raised cocker spaniels and cockapoo puppies for 15 years. Cockapoos have always been my favorite. They have such personality and they are so smart! We love the doodle personality so much that we have also added a Mini Australian Sheppard.
Over the years we have had many different animals come to live with us. One of mine was Coco the goat. She is a mixed breed of Alpine decent, one of the kindest animals I have ever had. In all my 50 years I had never had a goat, so she taught me everything I know. We now have Registered Nubians and Boar goats that we raise for milk and meat. It has been an adventure.
Another adventure I wasn't quite up to was Scottish HIghland Cows. I was raised with horses and sheep, so goats were close. Cows on the other hand were a little scary for me. But I quickly settled into cattle raising and have enjoyed every step. The babies are adorable! We raise them for fun and meat for the family. The meat is the best we have ever eaten. How do we eat such beautiful animals? Well I hope to share some stories in the future of life on the Shaggy Horn Hiill, but we will say there are crazy shenanigans somedays! We love our animals, we take special care to raise the best possible animals, whether destined as a pet or the table,
Our tasks are many and blessing as well.
