@terragongjamberoo is now a sought-after bed and breakfast, but it was initially built as a private #homestead in 1858. it’s just one of many grand homesteads dotted throughout #ruralaustralia that serve as a reminder of our pastoral history.
homesteads were originally built to support a lifestyle of self-sufficiency and were seen as a reflection of the prosperity of the owner. today, many of these grand #buildings have fallen into a state of disrepair, while others have found owners dedicated to their restoration and preservation.

No need for a caption when those smiles say it all. ❤️❤️❤️🌈🍄from left to right .. sunny and her chicken “grumpy”, goldie and her chicken “scrunchy”, forrest and cedar were holding their bunny brownie, but she is under the blanket somewhere 😂, and juniper is holding pierre the angora. 🐇🐓🐓🐇👩🏻🌾👩🏼🌾🧑🏼🌾🧑🏼🌾👩🏻🌾
I have no idea how old exactly this boy is. i know he’s somewhere between 18 and 22 based on the conformation of his teeth. i could tell he’s getting a little more sore in the joints and that he’s got less energy than i’d like. after i saw what gi calm did for dozer from @strideanimalhealth and her battle with leaky gut syndrome, i dropped the collection of supplements i had for finnegan and went for their product, lifeline+. this supplement saves me time—only one scoop and he’s getting “biologically active proteins, plus a unique fermentable fiber... in a convenient pellet form. bioactive proteins work together to support the gut, lungs, joints, and immune system of horses...”
finnegan has been on #lifeline+ for six weeks now and he looks incredible and i can tell he feels better too. you can check out @strideanimalhealth online and read the studies and science that backs up their products.

@openhomesaustralia series 3 has kicked off with a bang! we cannot wait to see all the incredible homes this australia has to offer. whether it’s sustainable homes of the future or incredible penthouses there is something for everyone! make sure you tune in tomorrow 11am on @9life to catch all the action.
wish i could find the poem that i wrote that accompanies this painting. an empty home on highway 55 on the drive from boise to mccall, idaho.
it feels abandoned and there is a huge pull in me to restore it & that it should be mine in some way. i want to live there. maybe it’s the green color and the cute shape of the entry or the windows that line up so one can see the vista in the background. it could be the peace i feel with overgrown tall grasses feathering in the wind. a single monument to slow the breeze in an otherwise vast and open space. over the years its shifts like the falling down barns do with its peeling paint and cows casually grazing inside the house like its their barn. “homestead” reminds me of the the land rush in the late 1800’s. i would love to know the memories the walls would whisper if they could. in our fast changing world i am drawn to what once was—like rotary phones and travel by horseback. but much like the 1992 movie “far and away” that romanticized the land grab without relevance to the native people that first occupied the land, i too have a romantic notion of time. i see the happy story first. the ground we walk on, earth, doesn’t tell one sided stories the evidence is written in each shifting landscape. as an artist i like to breath it all in and allow for the truth to resonate the strongest story on an intuitive level inside my being.
what new truth can you see? no good, no bad, just is.
i don’t know when i came across this quote but it resonates with me. take a beat and let me hold the mirror up for you. “i think it’s very important to have a feedback loop, where you’re constantly thinking about what you’ve done and how you could be doing it better. i think that’s the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.” -elon musk

Rainy days call for hot cocoa, wood stoves, and dogs snuggled up in front of a fire.
The ladies are all back together. the end of breeding season, finally. now to wait until lambs arrive in march.
while trying to get the rams back together, one was loose in the yard and one was loose in a pasture... they both ended up back in the pen they started in. it is a different kind of workout chasing rams in the dark with a headlamp.
Because sometimes you have to pause and take in a view. on that note you could own this view in about 8 weeks when it hits the market! follow @homesteadhomegroup to catch this listing and other great pnw properties.
Fall looks a lot like winter in wisconsin! fun fact: animals adapt incredibly well to winter weather. similar to a good travel mug that feels cool on the outside, but has steaming hot liquid inside, gertrude’s coat is so well insulated that her body heat isn’t melting the snow on her coat. most animals can thrive during harsh winters so long as they have a shelter that provides protection from wind and rain and plenty of food and water. (as you can see from the snow accumulation on gertrude, even when a shelter is available, the animals won’t always choose to stay out of the rain or snow!) #funfactsaboutfarming
We bought a house or i should say a 1 acre parcel because we love the land but dislike the house but that’s another story i will share. it quiet here, no light pollution which makes it the best place we’ve lived at for stargazing and we lucked out with nice neighbors. this city is definitely not the place where we see us growing old, it’s still away from my family in california but we had a goal; to live a debt free lifestyle and save money for our children and retirement. also, to start homesteading and living our frugal life we very much enjoy. (📹: this video is from last week. we finally live in a place where it snows more! ) #winsomeloosesome
Reason number 754 why having cows is awesome...a built in “cheering squad”. just lugging fence posts today and these little ones stood in awe the whole time watching the process. can’t feel alone in a paddock when you have a steady audience who moo in applause! 😜😘🐮
So excited about these teas i just received from @oteas_ !
i just discovered this company through a post i saw online and they are a company to be pumped about. the founder grew up in east africa and now lives in britian. he partnerd up with family from canada to bring the rest of the world these delicious drinks. these whole leaf teas not only taste fantastic but the teabags and packaging are 100% biodegradable- even the film packet that hold the teabags! most teabags contain micro plastics, but not these ones. they will fully decompose in your home compost bin which is awesome!
i am so thrilled to support a company so devoted to our planet and can't wait to try the 12 different flavours i now have in my cupboard 😍 #sustainabilitea
