My Irish Terrier Flynn would follow me to the end of the earth he is so loyal. Our guinea boar who is spending his winter in the barn. He will be a stud soon. He is quite possibly one of the cutest pigs I have ever seen. Our sheep spend the winter in the barn which is open on one side. They do not like being outside like the cattle do in the winter months.
Rural America has had little to be hopeful for, we have been losing farms, young people and economic investment and ultimately prosperity. However, there was a sense of hopefulness in the room that was palatable. It is moving to be part of it all, and even more exciting to think I might be able to make a go at farming myself.
