    Journal- of "Tasty Acres Homestead"!

    I am not a chat thread type person (I can never keep up with chat threads, lol) so I am starting a journal, that way you'll can get to know me and may be able to keep up with everyone.

    A little bit about me-
    I am a Christian girl
    Live in alaska
    I am home schooled along with my 7 siblings (one of witch is due in June)
    I have 1 dog, 4 goats, now for animals I want to have, 1 horse/mule/donkey, 1 dexter/jersey cross milk cow, 2 cats, 35+ chickens, 15 ducks, 2 bernese dogs, 15 goats, 1 beef cow, and 4 sheep. I think that is it, if I could have all the animals I wanted you would might as well call me an animal FREAK!
    I am strong willed and stubborn headed but thru my parents help they are showing me how to use it for what God wants me to do. I am not a easy one to submit either so I find it hard not to argue and talk back but I have Very Awesome Loving Parents that are willing to help me thru my struggles and show me what is right.
    I have found that God has gifted me with training animals and hope to someday take it into a courier along with having my own farm (Lord willing). I have 1 dog that has had many issues such as being aggressive with the kids, bones, food, etc, and needed help so I took the step to help him thru his issues, and along with the help of my dad me and him have become a great team. We still are in training so we are not perfect in anyway but having him has really taught me some things and it has sparked a little that I will have to see where it takes me.
    I like to hike, bike, playing tag, and a old favorite game is doge ball. Since we live in alaska I have a lot of things to do the summer. And did I say water, I love water. I don't like getting my face wet but who says you have to put your face under water to like water?
    I also like cooking gourmet dinners.

    Hope you'll enjoy the read!

    Me with my tasty goat/wether. Tasty is a goober! He is always trying to get ALL the attention to himself by doing jumping acts! So I assume why you would name a pet goat "Tasty"? I got given him by a friend for our future herd sire but since he is a Nubian he has G6S so he has a breathing problem, hips are quite a bit taller than his shoulders, so we weathered him. Dad decided to name him Tasty because he was supposed to become dinner! Well, after a bad castration my dad felt bad, my mom is in love with this goat and saved him from the dinner plate but his name stuck, "Tasty! :love

    Awesome! You must miss them!

    Boaz looks like one of my dogs, Daisy. She's a border collie mix. :)

    And that's a sweet story about Tasty, he's pretty! Bummer about his problems though. :/

    Oh, brother! Leader the destroyer, lol.
    Leader is our herd sire. He is 200 pounds of pure muscle and delight, oh but what did I say about destroying? He loves to climb/break fences, latches, etc:th but I still love him!
