Happy Birthday, Cary! I know some of you have been around since the day she was born. Can you believe it's been four years already?

Cary's Show Sheep Pose (actually she's scratching against that panel)

My sweet (and big!) Cary doll is doing just fine. She's happy and healthy and only pulls the 'privileged animal' thing every once in a while (though she no longer comes in the house). Because of the frightening trouble she had with her first pregnancy in 2008, I decided not to breed Cary again. I may change my mind in the future—how cute would it be to have a Cary baby?—but for now I'm playing it safe. I'm happy enough just to have her here.

I'd love to stay and reminisce about Cary's babyhood—like the time she was jumping up and down on the couch—but I've got to get back to the party. Ice cream sprinkled with plenty of grain for everybody!

  1. Happy Birthday Cary! Wow, I remember when she was born... That's long ago!



  2. Baby Cary and Cary Grown: unbelievably cute at all ages! What a smile!

    I love your Daily Doses of Cute. For me they've been a wonderful antidote to the craziness of our age. You are such a talented photographer and do a great job of capturing the spirit of your critters. Keep up the good work!

  3. Four years? No! No, really? Happy Birthday, Cary! I so remember how touched I was by her story, for a long time, I called you LambMama.

  4. All you animals are sooooo sweet! Happy birthday to Cary!

  5. Happy birthday, Cary! I can't believe it's been four years already!

  6. Happy Birthday, Cary! I too can't believe it's been 4 years. Love sharing your journey...

  7. awwww how cute she really was the sweetest baby lamb! You have to tell us that jumping up and down on the couch story! I love how you can really see her smiling - priceless :)

  8. Seems like yesterday! happy Birthday, Cary. You bring a smile every time you appear, as do all your friends and family.
    Enjoy that ice cream!

  9. Time flies, I remember reading about Cary in the early days. Have you considered writing this story for a children's book? It would be just lovely. And I would buy the first copy for my sons who are 23,26 and 28....and one for me too. Actually it would make a great movie, reminds me somewhat of the movie "Babe" that incredible pig.

  10. The best thing about being a Grand Parent is watching the Kids grow. So it is with Cary. She is a love

  13. Happy Birthday Cary. I can't believe it's been 4 years! I just love her ears as a baby and she has grown into such a big girl.

  14. Adorable lambs....They just may be cuter than our calves, but I don't know.... :o)

  15. Wow, it's been that long since I've enjoyed Cary and Farmer Susan's adventures!

  16. Four!? Even I'm not that old yet. (I jest.)
    Happy birthday, lambikins. And blessings on yer mama. The one who raised you.

  17. Happy Birthday Cary!!!

  18. Gosh, the photo story is so wonderful-kind of tells the tale of a little lamb with no boundaries-I especially love the one indoors with one of the cats. Happy birthday Cary, and Happy Mother's Day to you, her surrogate mom!!!

  19. Absolutely love your stories about Cary. How lucky she is to have you! Love reading your blog!

  20. Wow... has it really been that long? I remember your posts about wee Cary!

  21. Wow, that must be quite a birthday party you are throwing for Cary! Such a sweet girl, you should be a very proud momma!

  22. Oh, my gosh! I can't believe it's been four years. I've been following your blog since before Cary came along but without a doubt, the "Cary Story" is my all time favorite!!! Some of your recipes have become my "regulars" - the swiss chard salad and the soup made with red bell peppers and yellow squash - can't live without either one of those!


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!
