    Finally the bulls are here. I was warned not to spoil them. Apparantly spoiled bulls do not make good pets. It's calving season so the bulls had to leave the ladies. They dont look to miserable.

    I love your property! Those guineas really look like they're enjoying themselves!

    Can I see the inside of your barn?

    Sure come on to ND. I have 3 empty rooms upstairs and all the acreage you need...just how many critters are we talking about.

    The barn was built for milk cows. The side sliding doors open into the feeding/milking bunks. The back half is dirt floor for the cows. The front half is concrete. there is loft above the milking bunks with some remnants of the milking age. I had kittens up there a few years back. Spent lots of time sitting up there and spoiling them rotten.

    The bulls look quite content as do the Guineas. Nice pictures and barn. Don't you just love the smell when you open the door? I can't live without it.

    Oh not that many at all I have about 100 guinea pigs, about 30 or so chickens, 6 cockatiels and 3 dogs so not that many at all. Seriously though your property is soo super nice! It looks so peaceful!

    Our house was built before the war and finished afterwards by my DH's grandparents. They finished the concrete basement and lived down there until the war was over and could finish the house.

    This is the working outhouse (I cannot imaging using it) But I love old outhouses.

    They also raised bees to pollinate the fruit trees and crops. It has seen better days, but this is the old bee hut.

    I think the ice on the trees was just too pretty to not capture.

    Love that family history but what war are you talking about? Also LOVE the outhouse and that little bee house would make a nice extra coop!
