Emma and Lucy had an appointment yesterday to visit the Vet. We were back to leaving a bit early on account of weather. This is what we started out with. This is a bit much for mid October. More like mid November. The girls were very excited to go for a drive. We are still working on our travel behavior. When they got to the vet they were very well behaved.
Lucy now weighs 34.8 #'s and Emma weighs 30.9#'s. They are growing girls.
They received their first rabies and their first Lyme vaccination's today. We have many deer ticks in Maine and want to protect our girls. Sweet girls. Very good on the ride home too.
Thank goodness we have sunshine today. Much love and prayers from Mainely Ewes Farm.
This is the story of two best friends who lived in seperate towns, managed two seperate homes with all of the bills, taxes, and house payments of each. We thought that it was silly to continue paying such high bills. We decided to look for an old farm where we each could follow our dreams. We looked for a house big enough that would allow each of us to have our seperate space, enough farm land to be able to have sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys and any other animals that caught our fancy. We needed a barn big enough to house animals and hay. Both of us love the seasons in New England and wanted to remain in the northeast. Both of us were ICU nurses and are under no delusion that we can pay our bills with farming alone. We needed to be located near a large hospital for employment. We work full time as nurses and full time as farmers. That was a lot of needs/wants to guide our search. We combed through magazines, for sale guides, and the internet. We found a place northwest of Bangor Maine that fit these needs. It was a fixer upper in the mildest of terms. This is our story, how we arrived, refinished a 160 year old farm house and are making our dreams come true. We hit bumps in the road at every turn and try to keep a positive attitude. After three years we have come to a change that can't be overlooked. After much thought Alex has decided to pursue her dream elsewhere. Now the farm rests with Ted and I. We will work together to make our dream an actuality. Please follow along with us and welcome to Mainely Ewes Farm.
