You know that saying, "there's never a dull moment"? Well, there is this moment that happens in early fall. It's the moment when most things are planted, and you are just waiting for the big harvests to start rolling in. It would be a nice time for a dull moment or two. The weather is beautiful and there are an array of summer crops available, should you want to cook an elaborate meal or do some canning. It seems like we find some trouble to get up to every time this happens... and this week, we brought home a mule. That's right, a 2 year old miniature mule- her mom was a pony and her dad was a donkey. The other way around, we learned while doing about some internet research before making this decision, is called a hinny. She's young and a little feisty, she's bitten us several times already, so we decided to name her after one of our most favorite devas, Stevie Nips.
She is technically here at the farm to be a guardian animal for our sheep, but I'm looking forward to getting a little driving cart and training Stevie and Els to go for rides.
