Why "Albright Acres"? Here's why.....
We have animals. The farm type. The egg-layin', loud, poo producing kind that people pay money to let their kids pet. Yep, right in our yard! It started with my DH wanting a goat. "OK, babe". These are the things we wives say when our husbands say they want things like Harleys and goats. These are not things we expect to open our eyes to and in my case have to feed.
This is one of our two ducks, Faith or Hope. Hate to tell you chica, but you can sit in the chicken box all day and ain't nothin' gonna happen. Except some dirty looks from Big Bertha. (The white chicken above...she is mammoth!). The ducks have a blue kiddy pool that they swim around in and DH dug a hole and put in a pond with a bubbler/filter and they splash and frolic. He wouldn't buy me a kiddy pool to sit in when I was pregnant with his twin boys but he reads an article saying they love pools and well looky here peeps a new kiddy pool!! Whatever!!
Can't be a farmer if you don't have cats. We have 2 incredibly cool cats Burt and Frankie. Are you seeing a naming theme? We like people names for our animals and since they have no say we name them whatever people name happens to come to mind. I am a dog person, always have been. I've never considered getting a cat. I have enough going on without having to scoop poo on purpose in my house. Well, these cats poo outside so...bonus!
This is the inside of the goat shed with waterproof walls so it can be hosed out. I am proud of all that DH has done out there. PETA would be proud of what DH has done out there.
It's a nice little slice of pie here. MMmmm....pie. Anyways, it's fun and educational and can't wait to see what other creature makes it's way to the farm.
