Baruch Ha’Shem Blessed His Name
And that is how it has been this month with many new additions to Zephy’s Homestead. From baby kids to Live Stock pups, we have been a busy family This is hard work indeed. And I am on the small scale compared to some homesteaders I know.But the JOY of farm life is a dream come true. No matter what scale it is.
So much excitement happening,there is never a dull moment. Tons of extra chores to be done on top of training and feeling animals. Always moving. Who needs a gym?
The two kidds born where born on Sept. 2 2017 around midnight. Wake up call from mama as she was in full labor and dropped to kids in a welcoming cheer. A buck, named Dash and a doe named Lila. Both are doing very well, and growing quickly. LIla ended up being the runt of the duo, so my oldest has taken the role as her mama and the bond between them both is too precious. A learning experience for them both. Dash, the buck, is growing fast. Typical boy, who constantly eats and never leaves a drop of leftovers.
Both are up for purchase thru God’s Creatures in Apple Valley. You can reach Elisabeth for details

Along with new kidds on the block..we added a male Armenian Gampr Livestock Dog to our homestead. Meet Vagr-means Tiger in Armenian. Serun-means beautiful in Armenian, our female is adapting to him very well These TWO as i call them. Two peas in a pod.
Serun and Vagr being introduced to little Lila. Both are very gentle and are always making sure their family is being cared for

I am very pleased with this breed. Never thought I would ever consider such large dogs for my family Yet the Gampr breed has proven me wrong in their gentle ability for my children and the animals and their fierce protective instincts to out side intruders.(the 2 and 4 legged kind!). If you are ever wanting to know more about Armenian Gampr LGD see here.
Come Spring 2018, Serun will be breed and pups will be available. Stay tuned!
Well time to get off this blog and back to the homestead.
Hope you enjoyed my read.
Till I share again. Blessings and Shalom
