Not So Wildlife

Life on the farm would be lonely without some family to keep you company and provide you with love, protection and nourishment. We have our dogs and chickens and yes they all have names.

Ursula

Canis lupus familiaris - Half Great Pyrenees and half German Shepherd. Posing so nicely and smiling for the camera. Don't let the smile fool you as she does a great job protecting the chickens and the property. And at 110 lbs she has the muscle to keep us all in line.

Biko

Canis lupus familiaris - Half American Bull Terrier and half Pointer and here he is looking for help getting out of the snow. He is our city dog and not quite adapted to mountain living. He does a good job of protecting the house when he's not sleeping.

Elsa

Gallus gallus domesticus - Our most curious and excitable Buff Orpington hen. She will lift her wings and out race the others for some tasty meal worms. She is always looking for a treat.
