It has recently come to my attention that we seem to have a lot more drama around here than people on most farms and homesteads. And I realized that probably about half of it is caused by living on a creek. The creek provides a great home for coyotes to raise their families. The neighbor has seen a mama with pups for the past two summers, and mama coyote seems to think that our farm is the buffet for her babies. The creek is also home to beavers, which cut down trees. Mike doesn't mind that part, since they're helping him with fence posts. However, they also made a big dam at the east end of our property, and I think that's probably making our pastures flood more than they used to.
And then there are the floods. It happens so often that I even have a "flood" label for my blog posts. We have two or three a year, and we often wind up with animals to rescue from drowning or hypothermia. Once the electric fence is under water, it no longer works. And I know I will never forget the horror I felt when I learned that Margaret and Katherine risked their own lives to save our bucks from drowning one year. This past weekend, when we were gone, Margaret had to rescue the llamas. So, I have made a decision. I m going to sell the creek!
