"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Barnyard Critters



This is a side view of the pregnant goat Helga. She is one of the new goats we received in trade for wood. I tried to take a picture of her face to share the blue eyes~but no luck. She is a La Mancha mix.


Here are the twins, Comet and Cupid. The mother of these two(Paint)refused to allow me to take her picture. They are a mix of pygmy goat and La Mancha.



Awhile ago, I shared that we found ducks for sale($1.00) each. Here is a photo of Freckles(the only duck I have named).


Some of the rest of the ducks, playing in their pool! Ducks will climb in any water dish and create a muddy mess in moments. So the pool duty refill is a daily process. I guess it doesn't help that the ground is only dirt!
