We’re back! It has been a long two-year hiatus for us at Lavender Crest Farm. Store and tour operations ground to a halt when Mom (Sharon) had 4 hips surgeries and one fall (in that order)!
Jimmer here - it is chilly, but our birds are out.....
Jimmer here - A deer selfie - but read my post and tell us - WHAT IS THIS????
Meet Matilda. She is a Blue Merle Australian Shepherd. She is 9 years old and enjoys working on the farm with Jimmer. Her original owners were going to use her in their breeding program and then at two years old they decided against it. She then moved to Lavender Crest and has been a faithful and loving member of our family ever since. She enjoys our visits to "the hedge" and also likes to help Sharon bake and cook.
Hetty Sue came to us as a rescue cat from a local farm. She was a little under weight and had a cold. But with some good food, a warm place to sleep and plenty of love she soon was up and playing with everyone. She can be very quiet and we often forget she is around. That is until, out of the blue, she runs around the house creating as much havoc as she can.
Meara Stella is our dappled grey dun Icelandic horse mare. The Icelandic horse is a unique breed that is known for being sure-footed and possesses five gaits; the typical walk, trot, and canter/gallop commonly displayed by other breeds, but also the tolt and flying pace. The Icelandic horse is also known for its calm disposition which is perfect for therapeutic horses.
