Jenna TygerI’ve been absent from the blog for a while. There are a few reasons for this, but the biggest is that we had a new addition to our family …



My daughter, Sadie

Meet Sadie! She came in April, and we couldn’t be happier. I found out I was pregnant shortly after starting this blog. Between work, the animals and the farm, I just couldn’t keep up with everything! Right now I’m on maternity leave, and using the time to catch up on things I neglected when I was pregnant and extremely tired.

Life has continued during this time. We've had some losses. The one that hurt me the most was losing my dog Buffy the day after Thanksgiving. She was 11, but it was still unexpected. We also lost a few birds to accidents and one to a raccoon. Recently I lost one of my rabbits. For me, losing them is the most difficult part of keeping animals, and I always vow that I can't keep doing it ... then I end up with more.
