  1. Your dog is very cute ^,,^

  2. I'm staying in a hotel/farm in the Netherlands tonight and they don't have any stock dogs (though there is an exuberant setter on the property). Just getting to wander by the goats, horses, and deer (yes, tame deer) makes me envy your farm even more than usual ;)

  3. What a happy smile he has!

  4. What a doll. I'm in love.

  5. BEEEAAR!!!

    If ever a dog could be said to be smiling, that one is.

  6. What a nice dog! Bet he takes good care of the sheep.

  7. gotta love those little lambs!

  8. What a sweet little pup! He looks happy, in charge of his flock.


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
