Y'all join me in the singalong.....
"Where, oh where are you tonight?
Why did you leave me here all alone?
I searched the world over and thought I found true love,
But you met another and
you were gone".
Great pics CGM3! I can't imagine all those cats and all those cows! WOW! I know you have a farm but living in a big city, I don't see farms. In fact, to be honest, I've never seen a cow up close, ever. When I was 14 though, we moved to a town that was more country in Indiana (about 20 miles from my hometown) and mom thought it would be a great idea to own chickens since the house we bought came with a 30x50 pole barn, full of hay. The previous owners had a couple of horses. Anyway, I went with mom to buy the 50 baby chicks. One died on the way home. It was interesting owning those chickens. I know we later ate a few of them if not more than that but I never asked, lol.
By the way, how big is your land that you own out there? I know a guy who after owning his land for over 20 years, had a visitor come out with big excavating equipment. When questioned, the guy tells him that HE owns the mineral rights
on his land. He had never heard of that, ever. This guy didn't own it entirely but he had the right to do whatever he wanted, as it turned out. Long story short, my friend got a $53,000 check for his share of the mineral rights. If any of you own land, you might want to check who owns the mineral rights. My friend also gets about $6000 a year from the electric company just because they have poles and electric lines running out there. I think he owns about 220 acres. Oh, and I also found out that if you own land and you keep a certain amount of farm animals on it, you don't pay taxes or you pay very little in property taxes. AND I also didn't know that if you keep a donkey on your land, it keeps out the wild animals who might want to eat your livestock.
Thought I'd share.....Y'all know I share a lot with ya! LOL
Great pics though, I enjoyed them!
