Trance-Molting

When you own a Great Pyr you learn about DOG HAIR.  These dogs get really messy looking this time of the year.  Our dogs are working dogs, they don't get daily grooming and more important, they don't want or like that much attention.  Our dogs will "put up" with their annual molting/grooming.  But they don't like it and there is a lot of grumbling and moving around on the days I attempt to clean them up.  Trance allowed me to start on her yesterday.

Trance says..."Really, you want a picture NOW"  Actually you can see by the color difference, her new mane is coming in on her neck and she has fresh hair growth on her face.

Wendy our 30 year old Fox Trotter has to get in on the action.  "There has to be some food somewhere".

I tried to make poor old Trance happy with a reward of an early meal and extra treats..  as you can see we have made some headway, but there is a long way to go.  She announced that she had had enough!  I'll try again another day.  Then on to Bekka..

Bekka....

150 pounds of pure love.

A rough night of guard duty.

Bekka has had a sore front leg for a few weeks.  She is finally on the road to recovery and slowly going back to work.  If she gets a little to crazy about it, it will be back in the barn lot for her.

Beautiful Morning

A cool front has arrived here in the Ozarks... along with a very slight chance of a shower, making a beautiful 60 degree sunrise!

Hot summer day..

One of great neighbors stopped me on the way back from the feed store and said their sweet corn was ready and they had a ton more than they needed.  It was 96 degrees, I told them I'd be back at 8 a.m when it was cooler..I thought I would bring home 1/2 dozen or so ears... ha... they had a ton of sweet corn.  Beautiful peaches and cream..


Too hot to even go out in the pasture today.. baby girl on top of the calf hut (her favorite place) Mom below.


 She is wormed and tagged.  Ready for a new home.

Hummingbirds at their finest..

Please excuse my videos..I have not mastered editing them yet...(that maybe never)  We are currently feeding 10# of sugar a week.  I could spend hours watching these guys feed.

Agriculture at it's best... the next generation!



Awesome Youth Farm Video

The Peterson Farm Bros are made up of Greg, Nathan, and Kendal Peterson and we love agriculture! This channel is full of videos about our family farm and what we do to help feed the world. Our videos range from parodies, to informational videos, to entertainment videos, to our "Life of a Farmer" documentaries. It is our hope that these videos will give everyone who watches them a better understanding of what a real farm in the midwest looks like. We try to be as honest and upfront as possible in our videos and our posts and hope that viewers will realize how much hard work goes into farming! Make sure to become a fan on Facebook (Peterson Farm Bros) for more posts about what we do!
