We have a small farm nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains of West Virginia. We strive to be as self sufficient as our farm will allow. We raise Nubian dairy goats for milk. Angora goats, a variety of wool sheep and Angora rabbits give us fiber for spinning and knitting. We keep a flock of chickens for fresh eggs. Guineas provide bug control and alarms. We love our life here on this farm and are so thankful for our Savior, Jesus Christ. Without Him, we are nothing.

Meet "That'll do Megg"
Yes, here she is in all her Border Collie glory. She is a very small 7 week old little girl but she thinks she is all grown up and ready to take on the world. We picked her up in Charleston on Saturday and then spent the day at the Capitol. We had a great time and got some wonderful pictures. Megg took a nap under the giant oak trees out on the Capitol lawn. What a beautiful city Charleston is. We were glad to get her home and settled in though. She has adjusted to farm life quickly. She goes to the barn twice a day but she is not allowed to see the sheep yet. She is not old enough but she has gotten to see all the chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, pheasants, goats and cats. We have started her with basic obedience training right now (sit, come, stay and lie down) Soon she will start learning her herding commands like, "away to me, come bye, walk up and that will do" She will know the meaning of all of those before she ever meets her first sheep. I can't wait to start really training her. For now I am just spoiling her rotten and enjoying her sweet "puppy breath" and her puppy kisses. I've waited a long time for this dog and I am going to enjoy every minute.
