I just have to ask about feed cost for your animals. We are also a single income family & according to my dh we are supposed to be getting a cow this summer from one of the truckers who comes delivers to his plant. I know other families manage but I wonder how much we're going to have to budget. Oh and no idea just exactly what "all ready for her" means. (story at blog). Any suggestions?

Sounds like a full house to me! I imagine it makes things interesting to say the least!

Alrescate, we ate it.

Hey, thanks for the list and pics :) I didn't remember you had rabbits, or all those ewes! That's a lot of work, I'm impressed!

Great idea for a post. I think I'll do that on my blog. It is a pretty common question.
