Once upon a time there was a little chicken, whose name happened to be named Chicken Little. (Go figure.) Well this little chicken was having a bad day.

That's right folks, it is time for another adventure from the ranch! When we got our property, it was overrun with thistles. That first summer it was an everyday job to spray them with weed killer, made specially for them. We had pump up sprayers that you put the weed killer in, mix with water, … Continue reading Ants in your pants
