The Family Farm

In today's world, most family farms and ranches are highly specialized, raising a single crop or livestock.  Cattle, pigs, corn, wheat, soybeans, etc.  Not too many family farms are the farms of yesteryear, doing a little of this and a little of that, being basically self-sufficient.  Raising all of the meat, vegetables, milk, eggs, flour, etc. for the table.

My family's farm, Seifer Farms is a little different.

There's the usual dogs...
cats...
chickens...
horses... 
goats... 
llamas... 
and of course, what family farm would be complete without the odd Watusi or two... or four.
I wish I could tell you why my family has Watusi's... but I don't know.  But they're quite impressive, don't you think?

But, if you remember the story from an earlier post regarding my dad's pet black bear, you know he would be proud.

Thanks for stopping by.  The coffee's always on.
