Shadowfax Farm's puppies are ready to go to their new homes! We will be picking ours up sometime soon, and we are so excited! They are each 150$, and they are turning two months old on March 6th. 1/4 Pyrenees, and 3/4 Anatolian. Very nice looking pups, don't forget to grab yours.
I was skipping through HomesteadingToday forums, and found the cutest little story. The thread was about how she didn't know if her goat was pregnant to her Nubian buck... whether to let her have the babies, etc. Then, she found out that her small buck had bred her, so it was not a problem. Anyway, here is what was in her last post:

"I went out sat. morning and she had delivered two babies. A doeling and a buckling. The buckling was able to push some wire and get into the pen with all of the old ewes(at 1 day old) and when I went out I was terrified because I couldn't find him. He then hopped up into the shed (it's a little step up) with our pyrenees right behind him, almost pushing him. I went around because you can't go straight through and picked him up but when I reached down to get him the pyrenees put his paw lightly on him and didn't want to let me have him. I love this dog. He was keeping everyone away from the little guy(named Houdini). Now he lays right outside of their pen against the pen and the two babies are always laying right against the pen on their side. It is awesome."
That is so cute! I hope our guard dog, Silas, will be like that someday. Right now he is just going to be breathing puppy breath in our faces. Oh well.
I am proud to announce that we are getting a puppy next week! YAY! I love puppies... but then again, doesn't everyone? He is 1/4 Pyrenees and 3/4 Anatolian. He will already be dewormed and will have his first shots. They should all be weaned on the 3rd of March, which is in... 7 days! I am so excited! There are two things that I am looking forward to this Spring: Getting puppies, and lambing.
We will be getting a female to breed with him, and then we should have our own puppies. The person we are getting this one from is in Kansas, and still has several to sell. I am pretty sure all of them are 150$, but here is the link for you to see. Oh, and we are getting another 1 foot of snow tonight, so wish us luck with all the animals! ;)
