Valentine's Party

Hello, friends! Today I'm joining with Nancy and Lisa for a Boost My Blog Holiday Party. I have enjoyed blogging and feel privileged to know so many great blog owners. This is an opportunity for me to meet more folks.

I've been blogging for almost three years. I'm a former city girl chef who married a farmer and said bye bye to the city. I sew, craft, write, write, and write. Did I say that I'm a writer? I love to share pictures of our farm, and the animals who live here, with my readers.

You will notice a picture of a lovely horse on my sidebar. That's Wendell. He's a Belgian Hafflinger cross. He's fond of my blog, Tuesday Chats on the Farmhouse Porch, and my blog friends. People that stop by give him virtual carrots. They may not be satisfying to his tummy, but he loves the attention.

Here's what's going on here this week:
I received these lovely hearts from Farm Girl.
Such a sweet gift!

Our cattle enjoy a big bale of hay and a bit of sunshine.

Ricky gives Rocky a Valentine's smooch.

We had our first little brown lamb on Tuesday.
Mama spent so much time cleaning the newborn, and
 repeatedly knocking him over, that this was his first
chance to nurse. He was only one hour old when I took
this photo.

The other baby lambs say hello to the new kid on the block.

Wendell takes a walk to his pasture with a buddy.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway!
It ends 2/14 at midnight.
Low entry, so you have a chance.
You can read about it HERE.

Happy Valentine's Day!
