"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

This is Nellie, she is a LaMancha goat and is going to kid soon. She is the doe we bought with Norm the buck. Soon we will have goat milk, goat cheese, and frolicking kids jumping on top of everything (note the photo on the top of the blog).
No kidding!

North of the farm is a junkyard. I snapped some photos awhile ago and thought about my Mad Max post and realized I need to share the photos.

Did you know we have dinosaurs in Southern New Mexico?
Well for certain, toppled Rusty Rex dino's! I love the detail with the teeth!

Look at the back! Someone had some creative energy and of course a junkyard at their fingertips~
so they created rusty dino's skinny dino's and more!

No kidding!

I am thinking of asking out landlords who have minature goats if they can put a few of them here and fence it in so I can milk them. They are all white, I dont now what kind but I really want to learn to make cheese. I sure miss having goat milk.
