Well, Farnash Creek Ranch just got a blog! Yay! We are so excited to share our story with everyone! FCR is a cattle ranch in Hamilton, TX. We are on a journey to build our ranch and share our daily life with everyone who wants to know! I guess this first post should be the introductions. First, we have our Popi. He is basically the “boss man.” Popi does everything and you’ll rarely find him sitting down on a break. He is our handyman, chicken killer, fence builder, porch builder, and professional Ranch Rambler maker. Popi is married to Gramita. Gramita is our planner, do-er, idea-Woman, organizer,and our wine connoisseur. Next, we have Baby Seydi. She is Popi and Gramita’s very first grand baby. She is our cat chaser, dirt eater, morning cuddle-er,and (when she doesn’t have a nap) our hair pulling, screaming, scratcher and pincher. Lastly there is me! I guess I’m the normal one…. Just kidding! I am the self-appointed Ranch Manager of the family. I am Seydi’s mom and Popi and Gramita’s daughter. I basically try to talk them out of most of the more strenuous chores that we have, (but they always win!)
Let’s not forget the animals! Chip (Chocolate Chip) is our oldest puppy dog. He is a chocolate lab. Bindi is a Australian shepherd mix that was found. She makes sure all the cows get barked at on a regular basis. Last, but not least is Clause, he is a springer spaniel/ blue lacy (state dog of Texas!) mix. He is our newest addition. Born on Christmas and is a cow-barker in training. Cat-Man-Do is our kitten. He’s pretty chill and spends most days running from Baby Seydi. Next up are the chickens. Three hens, two roosters, and 1 guinea. The hens and guinea all lay eggs! We get around 4 a day! The roosters are getting ready to be processed! Sugar, Crowe, Rodie, and Cody are our horses and they ALL have big personalities. Lastly, we have the cattle. Big Chief is our bull (all the ladies love him), 4 steers, 28 heifers, and 12 calves. Oh! AND TINA! She is our “Corse,” her mother was impregnated too early and Tina was born very small and short. Its been a year and she still looks ‘calf-like.’ So, we let her stay in the pasture with the horses!
Well, this is us! We aren’t perfect and we are still learning! Hoping to grow and expand one day, but for now we are taking it one day at a time and enjoying our simple, fun, happy life! I hope everyone enjoys us!
Now that the intros are over next will be more “farm-ranch” related. I’ll keep everyone updated on our projects, plans, gardens, and just funny stories to we accumulated throughout the week! See ya’ll next time and remember to always be open to change and keep moving forward! Check us out on Instagram! @farnash_creek_ranch
