    2 Brand New Additions

    Well, yesterday I was the first one to notice that there's 2 baby chicks and another Mama hen. Today I ended up putting one of the babies in the hospital (small cat carrier in the house on the kitchen table) because not of an open wound but a sore foot/leg. I'm guessing it's only about 3-4...

    4 Steers

    I think they all get camera shy at different points seeing how at least one decides to hide behind the others whenever I go to snap pics. But they all have different personalities- Taco very friendly, Mouthy Buddy will approach but skittish, Shadow and Houdini will back away

    When my Great-Grandmother was alive and I lived with her. Every time I had a sore throat or a cough she used to fix a homemade cough syrup from honey and a couple other ingredients. I think lemon juice was one and brown sugar was another but I can't remember. Does anyone know about homemade...

    Has anybody else heard that catnip isn't just for cats? I just saw on a site that I'm currently doing research on for herbs that the leaves can be candied and eaten as a desert plus it's oils can be used to relieve the symptoms of headaches and nervousness.
