Welcome Lois! It's so wonderful to have you join us! Your farm sounds lovey and you have a good start on animals. What kind of dogs do you have? I am hoping to add some chickens to our family someday too. I hope to see you around the forum and be sure to share some of your sewing and crafts projects. I would love to see them!

Hi everyone, I am a farm girl returning from exile after 30 years. I am living my dream of returning to the farm I grew up on. I love the magazine because it celebrates the little things I took for granted before moving away from the country. We have 3 tiny dogs and a horse, so far. Chickens are next, I think. I love sewing, crafting, reading, scrapbooking and, of course, riding my new horse around the farm. Learning to garden, too. Eagerly waiting for spring to stick around here in NW PA. Winter just doesn't want to let go.

Oh my goodness, Connie! That sure is a lot of snow. But it looks very beautiful and peaceful. I love the feeling of standing out in the snow in the silence and just hearing the snow fall. Definitely clears my mind.

The end result of our snow storm was a whopping 18". Broke all our records here. Loved it!

Debbie, I would like to learn how to knit sometime soon. I currently crochet and absolutely love it. I didn't crochet until I joined the Farm. Such a wonderful thing to learn. I definitely agree with the crafty section first! Only thing is I find so many things I want to make a do lol! Please keep,us updated on your badges as you move along! I would love to see what you make!

Oh my gosh Connie! Your animals are adorable!!love those cute little pony faces! You are a lucky animal mom to have all those beautiful babies! How did things go with your snow storm?

darlenelovesart Posted - Mar 06 2019 : 12:10:25 PM
Welcome Deborah and Connie86413, it sounds like you are both going to really enjoy it here on the farm,
I sure do, their are so many ladies who craft like you do and even have swaps with the crafts they do. There is some beautiful work out there and they are helpful too.
Connie your animals are beautiful, I bet they are so sweet.
Deborah I bet you your new little great nephews will look adorable in those little hats.

Well enjoy the farm, it is great here! Have a good day

more farmyard babies Harriet (all the white chickens) and Stella (the red chicken) having a barnyard chat with Sammie the cat.

Connie86413 Posted - Mar 06 2019 : 10:56:26 AM
And this is Po-neigh and Irish.

I am working on the knitting badge first. Many years in high school, I had a substitute teacher who taught us to knit using pencils. I never did anything with this skill, so now I have the urge to try again. I found a cute baby hat to make since in a month I will be blessed with two new great nephews. At the rate I am going, the babies may be grown. Just kidding, I am very slow at this but enjoying it. Then I think I will work on the aprons. My grandmother always wore an apron and I just loved them. Unfortunately, I did not get any of hers when she passed, but I still have the memories. Can you see a pattern here? Crafty section first, then on to the others, unless I change my mind, which is often.

Welcome Debbie! I'm so happy you stopped by and introduced yourself. You have definitely come to the right place. There are so many wonderful Farmgirls here who share the same interests as you. I personally love crafting and I'm a big lover of animals. Which badges do you think you will start on? I hope to get to know you more. I will be looking around the forum for you!

dmanuel Posted - Mar 02 2019 : 4:09:52 PM
Let me introduce myself. I am Debbie from SW Virginia. I have been a farmgirl all my life. I love the outdoors, cooking, crafting, photography, history, and love animals. I do not practice farming anymore,but I do live on a farm in a renovated barn. I love all things farm. I am a retired school teacher of 33 years and work part time at our local museum. I love trying new things and can't wait to earn some badges. I can't wait to hear from my new sisters.

Wow Connie! 11 inches! That's crazy. We got a pretty big snow storm on Wednesday but it wasn't 11 inches. I hope you are all surviving the weather. Can't wait to see your photos.

Connie86413 Posted - Feb 21 2019 : 11:15:34 AM
Thank you! I have been trying to load them, but we have -so far- 11 inches of snow here in the high desert and this has slowed everything including our internet down. So, I have not forgotten you. Will try again later today. i have great photos of my mini horses rolling in the snow! Such sillies...Thank you again!

MaryJanesNiece Posted - Feb 20 2019 : 12:55:11 PM
Connie, the button circled in purple is the one you click on to upload a photo! Hope that helps. Let me know if doesn't.

MaryJanesNiece Posted - Feb 20 2019 : 12:51:41 PM
Bonnie and Connie, thank you! They are such sweethearts! I definitely suggest you talk with your vet about it. I feel like it was worth every penny. I would love to see some pictures of your babies. Yes I can definitely show you how to add pictures! Let me grab a screenshot real quick!

Connie86413 Posted - Feb 19 2019 : 5:10:54 PM
Krista, OMG they are adorable!!!!I love them, they are precious. I sure wish I have know about stapling the stomach to prevent twisting. But I know now, and with the hope of getting another one soon, I will most definitely inquire with the vet about doing that. I would love to post pics of my babies, but I can't seem to find out how to attach photos. Any helpful suggestions?....Thanks!

Bonnie Ellis Posted - Feb 18 2019 : 11:44:57 AM
Cool pictures!

Connie this is an old picture but it's the best picture I have of my little ladies! And that's because it was professionally done lol!

MaryJanesNiece Posted - Feb 18 2019 : 11:29:36 AM
Yes. The Anatolian does look similar to a St. Bernard. I love a Great Danes too! They are my absolute favorite and I plan to always have one. I'm so sorry to hear about your Great Dane. Losing our fur babies is the worst. I lost my Alaskan Malamute in March of last year and that was really hard on me. Wow! He was a big boy! My girl is only about 110. She is skinny but isn't food motivated. So we always try and help her put on some pounds. When we had her fix we had her stomach stapled to help prevent the twisting. We read before hand that the twisting was extremely common in Great Danes and we wanted to help prevent it. So far we have been lucky. Oh yes! The Border Collies have to stay busy. And if they aren't they WHINE! And oh my goodness is that whining annoying lol! She could chase a thrown ball for hours. My guess is the goats wouldn't like it either. You are such a wonderful person. There needs to be more rescue groups. I wish I could rescue more animals. I just don't have the room. Once my kids are grown, I will have more time for more animals. I would love to see the mini horses you rescue! It breaks my heart too. And there are way to many people who do.

Connie86413 Posted - Feb 16 2019 : 11:22:13 AM
Doesn't the Anatolian look similar to a St. Bernard? What a great mix! I love Great Danes. My last dog, who passed away from a twisted intestine, was a Blue Merle Great Dane. He topped out at 205#! Big boy. His nickname was Joker. That is when I learned that you never put a dogs food or water bowl on ground level. Always raised. Yes, I imagine a Great Dane would be a perfect companion for all my critters. They are so lovable! My second fav is the Border Collie. They are so smart, but yes bossy too. LOL It wouldn't be a good match for me because as I understand it, you have to have a job for them to be happy and I don't think my goats would appreciate being herded around! LOLOL Animals top my list of very favorite things. I just joined a killpen rescue group and I am hoping to rescue some mini horses this year. Breaks my heart to see people toss their animals away.
