Customer Service

As you probably know I spent 13 years in retail, 11 of those at a feed store and most days behind a sales counter.  I was the face of the feed store and customer service was my main objective.  There is an art to good customer service and it, like so many arts, is being…

Rachel….meet Sweet Feed

  While the bottle is still Rachel’s first menu choice, sweet feed has finally caught her attention.  Note the little grain she is daintily holding in her lips here….Its not much.  But its a start! The other calves are happy to lead by example. But bring out the bottle and you have her full attention!…

Wicked Walk 2/18/2015

So most walks I have all day and I’m in fabulous humor.  Then there are day’s like February 18th.  I was not only in a somewhat ill mood, I had to be gone from the house by 9:00 in the morning, on my day off.  Which should make anyone ill in my opinion. Anyway, here…

I Am Rooster

Friday Fun!

So the ‘fun’ didn’t really happen on a Friday, it happened on a Wednesday but whatever.  I had to travel 50 miles to work several hours and I knew the day would be slow and drag on forevermore if I didn’t bring an activity for Addie and me.  I decided we should paint so paint…

Wicked Walk 2/11/2015

Rachel gets Friends

Rachel will turn one month old next week and finally got some friends in her own species group.  Mind you these are not permanent friends, they’ll go back to their own home in a few months, but she doesn’t seem to mind. One friend even looks a bit like her, only our Rachel is WAY…

I wonder…..

I told Addie to make her bed. I wonder where she plans on sleeping……. The catfish looks stressed out by all the new residents on the bed. Only a six-year-old. 🙂

What not to say.

Females have a remarkable ability.  They can tote about an itsy-bitsy egg until it is fertilized, let another small human develop a complete, tiny body inside them with an extremely accommodating belly then extract the little creature via painful pushes and sometimes incisions.  A truly amazing process.  I have a good friend who has done…
