So this is Christmas



And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear
And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong
And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight
A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear
And so this is Christmas
And what have we done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young
A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

Goat milk ice cream?



Some of you might be raising your eyebrows right now because you've heard goat milk tastes funny.
We could blame the funny-taste fallacy on a conspiracy concocted by those comical Far Side cows.

So you should know that more of the world's people consume goat milk than cow milk.


Our goats have proven to be hardy animals. They've adapted well to heat and cold, productively foraged
and grazed [saved us mowing time and expense], and are inexpensive to keep.

Since mature does (females) usually weigh between 120 to 135 pounds they're much easier to handle
than hefty cows, which can weigh 1,000 pounds each.

And our goats surprised us in other ways,as well. They're highly intelligent, remarkably friendly and very curious.
Their antics amuse us for hours.

With all that in mind, it's easy to see why dairy goats are the next ideal addition to our family farm

22nd Wedding Anniversary [and she let me stay??]


If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee;
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me ye women if you can.

So here's our 10 month Boer doe-ling dragged off to 
the North East Texas Goat Raisers Assn. to let 
Mom and Dad practice trimming hooves

Snip, snip, snip
Shuffle, ball change,


Snip, snip, snip
Shuffle, ball change,

She didn't enjoy it any more 
than we did.... yuk... arrrrrrgh!

And many more hooves to go,

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow [click the pics]

Incredible snowfall amounts of nine to 14 inches fell in the DFW Metro area from 4 a.m. Thursday to Friday morning, Feb 11-12. 




The area's official snow total, measured at DFW Airport, is 12.5 inches -- the most snow ever in a 24 hour period. And on Thursday alone, we got 11.2 inches, which is a new record for a single calendar day. 




The storm has also pushed this winter to the second snowiest on record. We've had 15.7 inches of snow this season, and for Poetry that's a record.




Most of the area kids were thrilled to have the day off from school and all this snow; well, maybe not all kids ...




So with camera, and Shiner in hand, we can report all are safe and well in Poetry, Texas.  Thanks for visiting Y'All.

Another Year of Change and Thanks



Yes we had many surprises this year both sad and joyful. Said goodbye to dear ones and welcomed new members to our extended family.

First frost is on the way to Poetry so wood is stacked and comforters drawn tight. Our pasture friends will need lots of TLC till Spring... my back already aches. So to Dorothy, we miss you dearly, to Kylie, welcome to the ride of your life.

Thanks for stopping and here's a little poetry from Poetry, Texas.

New Additions and Changes ...


May's soaking rains gave way to 100 degree days in June; while providing a bountiful hay for our harvest this year.

We also had a new litter of Boer kids to supplement our herd. Nanny and kiddos are doing just fine. As our herd continues to grow Poetry Ridge Boer Goats is becoming more of a reality that will one day support our rural, semi-retired lifestyle.


Changes indeed ...this weeks poetry, from Poetry. Thanks for stopping.
