Merry Christmas

Love makes the world go round, and sex makes love go around. Our farm has seen lots of lovin’ this year, that is for certain, actually it’s more of a brothel than a farm, which would make me more of a Madam than a Farmer, and really, I’m okay with that. Between the sex filled…

Is your dog an asshole?

Everyone, absolutely everyone will tell you the good things about their dog, but what about all the other stuff, the asshole stuff, the maybe you won’t like me much when you find out what my dog does kind of stuff? You know, the stuff that is swept under the rug, out of sight, but still crunchy…

Open Communication

Communication with your dog isn’t as simple as you talking and hoping your dog listens. Communication where you connect with your dog and your dog connects with you, and there is an understanding where you are working together, is what I refer to as open communication. Sometimes it is words, but most of the time…

I don’t train husbands …

For nearly two decades now, not a week goes by where I am asked to help with a husbands behavior. And my answer has always been, I don’t train husbands. For a good reason, but I’ll get to that in a minute! My training business is surprisingly more men then women. I never really took…

Dramatic weather, moody clouds, sun, snow, hail, and wind. It is all a spring thing! My ducks and dogs are loving it, as am I. I will never get tired of waking up to such beauty, such power, such life. Enjoy this spring – Nancy

Welcome Alistair!

My Ladies have been loving the spring thaw, the mud puddles, and endless outings out in the back pasture. Since Peaches showed me she is my one broody duck, I promised her a drake at some point, and the universe must have been listening. I was at the feed store the other day and was…

Yesterday I learned something new

Censorship has hit the USA … again. This seems to be part of our history when someone in power is threatened by ‘other voices’, most of the time voices of reason, voices of common sense, and voices that challenge the narrative or lies being told. Someone in power doesn’t even have to be a person…

Duck Egg Binding – soft shell

So I have been in the duck world for eight months now. And like a new duck owner should be, I have been on a giant learning curve, and pretty much everything new throws me back to the drawing board so to speak. I have been reading every article that has ‘duck’ in it, buying…

Moving Mayhem – how to make the best of it!

Whether you are doing a small move, large move, and an extensive life overhaul move, moving is moving and it disrupts the nest. This difference when we move between humans and dogs is, a human is thinking about and planning the move for months if not longer, and is mentally preparing the possibilities and transition,…
