No the Shetlands have not taken a back seat, its just that I like to take pictures. The seller sent me pictures from the Fair. Shilo and Anna are beautiful does and I feel humbled to have them in my barn, Remember I tend to hover. My life is exactly on target. I have all day to putz with my Ameraucanas, Splash Silkies....a pair, 12 four month old chicks. The hen is setting on more eggs (some are from my Ameraucanas) My the-way-I-like-em Shetlands and 2 dairy goats. I should have been born in the time of self-sufficient farmers on tiny acreages raising their own food.......a team, a milk cow, chickens...you get the idea. A Pioneer I guess.

November 2011 I retired, sold my Shetland flock and moved to town.I live on the edge of Fergus Falls, pop 13,000. Its has been a great choice. My mother, sister, her family and my granddaughter live here. I have a garden shed that I converted into a chicken coop. Its also houses my granddaughter's pet Rabbit. My backyard will be flowers and shrubs.
