A Pear Eating Poo

Tom playing with our Cockapoo, Andrew Jackson, as he’s eating a pear he discovered on Kritter County.

Where’s the Beef? Ask Judy :)

Watch the excitement of “city gal”, Judy, in a sea of  (grass-fed) beef. It’s always a good time having a treat party with our babies at Kritter Country. In this video we add in a City Gal and some cows “in the mood” for reproduction; if you’re familiar with the process, you may note this happening just to the right of the video.

Forward to the Past

K & ZoeMany may think we live in the stone ages at Kritter Country since we live a humble, self sustaining lifestyle. Perhaps we captured evidence of such (remind you of Pebbles on the Flinstones with a bone in the hair?) or is it like living in the cowboy and indians time as it is actually accessorizing with an arrow.

Surprise Chicks!

ChicksTom was riding around looking at cows and discovered this momma chicken with her 12 babies!  We never knew she was MIA somewhere sitting on eggs.

Vixen’s baby

Vixen had a baby boy this year!  All our babies this fall are very laid back.

Welcome Spanky

Spanky is the cutest baby boy of the fall!  Normally boys don’t get names because they eventually have to leave us, but he was too cute to not name.  Spanky is the first boy Crazy’s had in 5 years.  We’ve kept her last 4 white face girls to be mommas.

Krysten

IMG_20130809_152310Krysten is one our volunteer Kritter Keepers. She comes for a few days at a time thoughout the year to help out around the farm. She and Jenn have bonded over their love of Bunny Hop and take great pleasure in naming everyone. Krysten and her step father recently bought 2 cows who will live here at Kritter Country.

Zoe & Jones

100_3525Zoe & Jones are our newest furry kritters. They were rescued from a litter of wild barn cats. It took Jenn months of feeding them and sitting out on the porch before she gained their trust. Now, Jones (yellow) jumps on a lap any time one is available and Zoe (black) likes to ride the golf cart with Jenn when the mood strikes her.

Friendly

100_3527Friendly is another one of our Herefords. She holds a special place in our hearts because she was such a fun calf. We got a German Shepard puppy about the same time Friendly was born and they would play together. It was really fun to watch and something we may never see again.

 

Bunny Hop

Bunny HopBunny Hop is our very special Missouri Select American Simmental. Although she isn’t ideal for grass finishing, I bought her because I knew Jenn would fall in love with her…and it was love at first sight. Bunny is like having an overgrown dog, she is so gentle and loving and intuitive about Jenn’s disability. Sometimes Jenn has trouble griping treats and/or letting go of them, this makes it tricky for her to feed most of the cows who knock the treats out of her hands with their tongue. However, Bunny Hop gently and patiently takes the treats with her lips, no tongue and no teeth :)

In the picture, Jenn is kissing Bunny Hop’s nose. Some of our close friends told her she couldn’t kiss a cow, so here’s the proof! Some of my farmer friends and myself like to give Jenn a hard time because Bunny is scruffy and not a good body type for grass, but she’s a favorite of all our non farming visitors.
