A couple weeks ago I asked the people in a Homesteading group on Facebook what books they'd recommend, and they suggested Storey's books on livestock. I had received a couple Amazon.com gift cards for my birthday and for Christmas, so I went on a little shopping spree! The last of the books finally arrived this past week, and I'm very excited to have a big stack of brand new books to look through!
I'm not sure which book I'm the most excited about.
|Aw, so cute!!|
I never used to want goats...but my mind has officially been changed!
|Eek! So fluffy!!|
I decided to pick this farmsteading book as my first read, so as to gain a broad overview before moving on to the more species-specific books.
The Farm Dogs book is just for fun. My Scotch Collies will be my general farm dogs, and I'd be surprised if I ever had enough livestock to justify getting a Livestock Guardian Dog. But if I did...this stunning breed would doubtless be toward the top of my list...
In unrelated news, I also ordered some ingredients tonight for my first attempt at making my own lotion. I have no idea what I'm doing...but I'll be sure to blog about my attempts!! :P
