Mud Ranch's Real Dirt was recommended Raising Country Kids.
Thanks to Joan at Mud Ranch for the following email and pictures of some of their Jacob sheep
My blog is made up of daily posts on mostly our Jacob Sheep, Kiger Mustangs, Hereford Cattle and our Livestock Guard Dog Abby. My husband and I run our small 38 acre ranch where we raise our sheep for meat as well as a handful of Hereford Cattle. We have started from scratch, building fence, building a large six stall barn out of lumber milled from our own property, we're raising our one year old daughter and will be teaching her the ways of living in the country.
We are located in Northern California about an hour away from shopping which makes it nice to be further away from the citified way of thinking, though it is sometimes not far enough. The blog is a nice way to write about our life as it's happening as a way to diary and be able to look back on what we've done over the years. It is also a creative outlet for me and my photography, as I love to take photos and share through pictures things that are going on around here.
Being in the middle of summer, the things on the forefront of our minds is gathering wood for winter and getting tin on the lean-to's on our barn before rainfall. The lambs are almost full grown so will be shipping them off to their new owners this weekend and getting the butcher lambs ready for the freezer.
