"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

Teens, Kids, Lambs, and George!


Here are the teens holding the triplets! As you can see the runt(in the center) is a good deal smaller than the other two. Oh and the teens are from left to right: Third, Fourth, and Second(of course blogland names!)


Martha and Mary, the Najavo Churro lambs. As you can see Martha is black, and Mary is brown.


Second with George. We were going to have the teens hold the lambs and George together, but George DOES NOT like sheep it seems!!


Fourth with Mary...I had to add this because well ~CUTE!!

Fourth is a lovely young lady and Mary has stolen my heart of hearts. Can I kid-sit her? :o)

Gosh, all the "kids" are adorable! I have 4 kids now but would love to have the other kind of kids too. :)

Deby~George is big but sweet(to me:)

Yes that is Mesquite behind the kids, as our property that is not cleared is covered by Mesquite. It is perfect to hold the soil down when the winds blow!

I so agree that the children(teens) are learning so much here on the farm!


Susan~thank you, and right back at you, as your family is lovely too.

Lady Jane~ Of course you could sit! It is incredible to have Mary race and jump and follow us around!

Simply Heart and Home~it is fun to have all the critters for sure:)
