Sad days on the farm

Our farm was a normal  farm until my best friend Shadow (the dog) died when I was 7 years old. My life was really sad with no protector, no really good friend until we got another dog named Danner. He was hard the first couple of months but then he was a true farm dog, he chased 4 racoons in tree's.

But then bad things started to happen, first our cat had five kittens, they were so cute until one night Mara (our cat) was moving them from the barn to some other place she was on her way back to get the last kitten but a raccoon beat her to the last one. I woke up the next morning to do my normal chores, I walked in the barn  and I saw a baby kitten dead on the ground with blood all over.

Then another bad thing happened, I woke up to go do my chores one day, I went to the pig pen and I found one of our pigs dead on the ground. I inspected it and there was no blood or scratch marks anywhere. It was really sad but I still did not know what happen, My family said that it was a birth defect, I thought so to.

Now the worst thing that happen on 6/30/2013 my best friend Danner died. He got kidney failure, he must of ate a poisonous plant or rat bate. It is sad that all of our animals are dieing, it's like sand slowly slipping through your fingers. My best friends are now gone out of my life.

We all love you and miss you Danner

Rest in peace.

Today on the farm

 Another day Another dollar, same old thing every day. Here is some stuff that we did on the weekend. 

We got pigs for our Hood River county.

The brown one with spots as you can see is mine, I named him Pork chop . The black one (in the first photo) is my brother Sam's. Then the other are to sell.

Dog Wash

We just got pigs on our farm a couple of days ago. My brother Sam was trying to train the pigs one day and he locked them in to a different pen and left the other gate open and my dog Danner got in to the pen. My dog likes to roll in animal poop, so today he rolled in the pig poo and Sam had to clean him.

 Doesn't he look so sad (he hates water a LOT)

This is what I woke up to

Snow? In March? Yes I know crazy right? This is good old Oregon weather. You do not even have to watch the news because they say something then it is the opposite.

Man Toys

This is what my dad just bought!

Here is a 1962 International Cub Low Boy. It has a little 4 cylinder engine, but it still runs like a monster!

                          It has a small bucket just right for our little one and a half acre farm. We use the forks on the front for cleaning out the stables. 

This is a carry-all that me and my dad made, and I got to tell you it is a big helping hand!

It also has a rake and a plow blade which is also a big helping hand.

 It is a fast hitch tractor. There is a hole at the back of the tractor that the bar just slides into the hole then there is a pin that snaps into that little dented part. You do not even have to get off the tractor. I think it was the easiest hitch in tractor history.
