The Blog

Pretty good for a 3 year old photographer!
Welcome to Nes' Farm blog for The Booth Boys Barn,

I started the blog to keep track of all the crazy happens and all the work on our very first home. Also, so I don't drive all my friends and family on facebook crazy with all the farm stuff!

I grew up in the middle of Toronto, so it surprises more then a few people that I'd choose to move out here to the country. I've always loved animals, and have been riding on and off for most of my life; so it shouldn't be to big a shock to the people who really know me. I love the hustle and bustle of the city, but really nothing beats clean air, quiet bird singing and being able to see the stars at night!

We have two young children, but you won't see any picture of them on the blog; that's just not my thing. They love it out here, playing with all the animals, and running through the barn. Not sure they'd ever go for city life either.

I hold my barn and the care of my animals to a pretty high standard (I'm sure my husband would complain more so then the house...). I just find that keeping things neat and tidy, although it takes a little more effort, really pays off at the end of the day. Being able to find things when you need them, not stepping in poop over 2 minutes and keeping all the animals happy and healthy. That also means I worry excessively about their welfare, frequently to the point of  neurosis.

I try to post a little something every day about what's happened on the farm, and there is always something going on! You should never take anything I post as actual advice as neither of us really know what we're doing, so use your own best judgement.

Thanks for joining us on this adventure, good or bad we're going to have a lot of fun!
