Not long ago these two were the same size. Kelpie Mia probably didn't think she would be such good friends with me when we first met. Even though she's now twice the size Orki is still a big sook and wants to be as close to Mia as she can overnight.

๐ŸŒฑRoughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year โ€” approximately 1.3 billion tonnes โ€” gets lost or wasted.
๐Ÿฅ•Food losses and waste amounts to roughly US$ 680 billion in industrialized countries and US$ 310 billion in developing countries.
๐ŸŒฑIndustrialized and developing countries dissipate roughly the same quantities of food โ€” respectively 670 and 630 million tonnes. ๐Ÿฅ•Fruits and vegetables, plus roots and tubers have the highest wastage rates of any food.
๐ŸŒฑGlobal quantitative food losses and waste per year are roughly 30% for cereals, 40-50% for root crops, fruits and vegetables, 20% for oil seeds, meat and dairy plus 35% for fish.

With millions in our own country going hungry everyday, Iโ€™m sharing this as a challenge...
๐ŸŠ Donโ€™t judge a fruit or veggie by its appearance ๐Ÿฅ‘ Reduce food waste in your home- plan meals, freeze produce for smoothies, use air tight bags and utilize produce drawers

My sweet Dolly Mae Parton โค๏ธ Her momma was teeny tiny and after a year and a half of life, I think itโ€™s fair to say that she is following right along in her footsteps. She is as independent as they come, fearless of pretty much anything... and has the greatest disposition. She loves to chit chat, have belly rubs and doesnโ€™t chase the kids... unlike someone else we know (ahem... Tammy Wynette). Weโ€™re debating on whether or not we should set her up on a blind date with the neighboring buck... ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I really want some more goat babies, especially if they end up even remotely as sweet as herโค๏ธ... but Lord help me if I get another Tammy! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I got some helpful visitors today! My volunteers moved a ton of heavy rocks out of my field, squished squash bug eggs, removed and composted the straw from my garlic patch, and filled a bunch of row bags for me!
Thanks for all your help, guys!

If there is anything cuter than baby chicks on a tiny chair, I havenโ€™t found it yet ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฅ these little girls are so cute and getting sweeter my the day. They are starting to run to me and climb all over me when I sit down with them ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿ’œ I had read that ducks were friendlier, but so far the chicks have been way more social with me.

Goat hoof trimming 101 ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป
Iโ€™ve been trimming my own goats hooves for a long time. Probably since I was 11 years old. Itโ€™s not complicated or something too difficult. I think new goat owners get worried and stressed during their first goat manicure.
Items needed
1. Goat with unkempt hooves
2. Restraint system like a leash or milking stanchion. (I restrain them between my knees ๐Ÿ˜‚) 3. Quality hoof clippers from #caprinesupply #tractorsupply or other farm store
4. Blood stop powder for mistakingly cutting too deep. #craphappens ******fyi- Flip flops are not the recommended footwear.**** ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜œ
Regular hoof trimming is a must. Some goats need it monthly, others twice a year. If you allow them to overgrow you can cause the goat to have lameness, infections and itโ€™s hard to correct years of neglect.
Not clipping hooves IS animal neglect.
My video is wiggly (15 yr old camera boy and wild yearling wether getting his nails clipped for the first time.
Start by taking just a little off. If you see pink under where you trimmed STOP trimming. Let the hoof heal for a week and them trim down more at a later time.
Goal is a healthy flat hoof with no over/extra growth. Helpful Hoof clipping diagram is the 3rd image.
Just jump right in and start trimming! Please be careful! Iโ€™ve stabbed right through my palm before!!!! #goats #goat #goatsofinstagram #trimminghooves #goatcare #homestead #skills #goatyoga #goating #boer #goatlove #farm #advice #homesteading #farmstead #farmers #farmlife #animals #stewardship #careforyouranimals #farmhouse #farmfriends #vibes #feels

One year ago today I drove out to look at a 17 year old mustang pony, needless to say the meet and greet went well ๐Ÿ’› it was love at first sight and a few days later Bella was settling in to her new barn. I have loved every minute spent with my sweet girl, and look forward to many many more ๐Ÿ’›

Sharing our farm life is the purpose of the @kelbyranch page. .

@erineharrell has followed our page from the beginning โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ She has even made her own step into farm life by raising some back yard chickens. ๐Ÿ” But today, everyone got a little taste of morning chores:
Feeding
Watering
Cleaning Coops
Horse Hugs ๐Ÿค—
I get the best questions from kids who visit! Everything from why cows have ear tags to how much bigger Scout will get.
I love them all โค๏ธ

What a Monday it's been... We had a field fire today, very early on into the harvest and probably not the last either. It's a big problem for farmers, especially in this heat. Some of you live on farms in this community so you'll probably know the feeling. In the same vein, there are lots of people here who know the wrath of forest fires too. Luckily no one was hurt, we were able to get our machinery out of harm's way and we're very thankful for the fire service. โ €
โ €
In anything, it's so important to work together as a team. It certainly hasn't been good for the anxiety, though; now I'm shattered! When I got back I cooked a carbonara from scratch to help take my mind of things. Cooking can be so therapeutic in times of stress! Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to starting anew tomorrow! Wishing everyone well. โ˜บ๏ธ

Today was our first TV-free morning (and our first morning together since I returned from a week-long kid-less vacation!) It took some time for Elliot to stop asking โ€œwhereโ€™s the TV? Watch a show??โ€ but he eventually pulled out some things to play with. He didnโ€™t engage with anything for longer than a few minutes (swipe to see the DISASTER our living room was after just one hour) but we made it!!

A delightful day with delightful company, both of the human and animal variety. #farmfriends

While @a_pig_named_penny is keeping cool inside the house (because sheโ€™s potty trained now ๐Ÿ˜) we were out at the barn giving the animals some extra water to get through this heat wave! Found a mama and some brand new baby chicks that were too cute not to share! ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ

We have had some tough hatchlings the last couple of days. First one of our guineas had a couple of keets hatch, but the first two didn't make it so when we found this one by herself we brought her inside. She warmed up and got stronger. Then two days later Kora's first chick hatched and wasn't doing well so we brought this little chick inside. We were really concerned that she wasn't going to make it, but the keet took it upon herself to nurse her to health, even holding her head up when the chick didn't have the strength. 24 hours later the chick is happily chirping away and following around her best friend๐Ÿ’—

Thereโ€™s only one other thing that can drain you more than a day battling the monsoonal rains while trying to harvest and pack boxes for our Bangkok restaurants, and that is leeches.
Free boxes of veg for the first chef to come up with a dish for leeches (weโ€™ll throw in the leeches too). #farmfriends #heirloomvegetables #knowyourfarmer #local #locavore #thailand #bangkok #laos #kanvilayorganic

We went to the beach! We went to the beach! And we were all there together!! We've never been able to do this as a family. Either I go with the boys on vacation and Clay stays home to tend to the farm or we flop. He goes, I stay. It's so hard to leave the farm as a family for more than a day. Thank you thank you from the bottom of our hearts to our wonderful farmer friends @eightarrowsfarm and Matthew Huff for tending so well to our animals so we could go. Thank you @eightarrowsfarm for working extra hard on your farm and ours. We love y'all! You are God's blessing to us. Swipe to see us vacating. .

It's Sunday food prep time! If you haven't read my recent blog post (link in the bio), you should know that I grew up in Boyd. I've spent the past few days there visiting with my parents and friends. I had a wonderful time! Yesterday, I picked up fresh squash and okra from our friends at @demases_farm. They have wonderful produce and it was nice catching up! I grilled the squash and onions in a cast iron skillet, and cooked the okra in the oven. I like my okra a little brown with cajun seasoning. I added Amylu's apple and gouda chicken sausage.

A dog and his ducks ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™ Spot is barely a year old and is already a pro LGD (livestock guardian dog). Not only does he guard his ducks and horses, he will also make sure no one bothers my little chihuahua, Loki, when he goes out to potty ๐Ÿ’™ I love this boy so much and am so thankful for his help on the homestead!

So Charlotte's hatch didn't go as well as I had hoped โ€ข Out of the dozen eggs we gave her only two chicks hatched - the little Olive Egger and a Maran โ€ข Sadly, when I checked on everyone yesterday afternoon, I found the little Maran dead in the nest - leaving the little grey one (from the picture I shared the other day) all alone โ€ข So I quickly made arrangements with a few other farmers and spent the rest of the day running around and picking up a few more chicks to keep our little one company
-
We now have four more chicks - two Crested Cream Legbar girls, and two Easter Eggers (hopefully girls as well!) - and all five babies are happy โ€ข Charlotte took to them right away and is showing them all how to "chicken" โ€ข She's the best momma
-
In yesterday's runaround I also picked up these two (pictured) young bantam girls โ€ข They're about a quarter of the size of a normal hen and won't get much bigger - so so cute! โ€ข I'm well on my way to making friends with the greyish one which means "Operation House Chicken" is officially underway! โ€ข Just don't tell my husband ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜Š

Jack tried picking a fight with baby goat. Heโ€™s lucky it wasnโ€™t Princess Fancy Fairy or her brother. That momma woulda knocked him into next week.
