I'm back.....

Well, it has been nearly four years since I posted... wonder if blogs are still getting traffic? Facebook has certainly changed a lot of things. If I see interest in future posts I will revive the blog.
Unicorner Farm has changed since 2010... we still have Tunis sheep, we only have 3 miniature horses left, still have Goldie and Fancy, have added a new llama for the sheep, but the biggest change is all our new feathered friends!
We have dived into the poultry business. Best friend Ann and I started "Bossie Biddies" and now raise all sorts of poultry. From exhibition chickens ranging from tiny Seramas to huge Orpingtons and Wyandottes, with some rare Appenzeller Spitzhauben, Brabanters, and Icelandics thrown in. We also raise guineas, ducks, peacocks and turkeys. Our website is

In memory of Mudpie 1987 - 2010

We had to put one of our old Tunis ewes down this past week. We sure do miss her. When I spoke to her breeder back in the summer she told me that Mudpie got her name because when she was born the ground was so muddy she ended up being covered in mud.

Muddy had a funny personality, and we think she was smarter than the average sheep. Until we brought her sisters home last summer she was the oldest on the place and she always got special treatment. She needed extra groceries and would wait until we called her name to come into the barn aisle to eat her extra ration.

We will miss the old girl, we have kept two of her daughters, Raquel and Toy and a son, Urlich. Urlich may stay on the farm as our second ram.

Thanks, to Tunis buyer, Julie

We appreciate Julie Amendola visiting our farm after Thanksgiving and purchasing two of our Tunis ewes. One was a homebred, Tessa, and the other a nice ewe we purchased back in May. We hope that Julie has a nice crop of lambs, since we believe both ewes are pregnant to our new ram, Troy.

Goodbye to Summer... the miniature horse...and Octoberfest!

We delivered our beautiful buckskin miniature mare, Indian Summer, to her new home near Taylor, Texas this afternoon. Thanks, Nina, for choosing her, we hope you will enjoy her!

Here she is taking a look at her new home, at least she is accustomed to llamas, but the miniature donkeys were something new and she was watching them.

After getting Summer settled in, we drove back by way of Walburg, Texas which hosts a great German restaurant. And since it was October 1st, Octoberfest was underway. 

Luckily we arrived early enough to get a table, we found out they do reservations on Fridays and Saturdays during October! We had a yummy German buffet that included some of the best schnitzel I have ever eaten. By the time we left, there was a line at the door and the parking lot was overflowing.

Fun Weekend for the Girls

A couple of weekends ago I attended a ladies' retreat with fellow church friends and family. We always have a blessed time and enjoy the Christian fellowship and fun.

The retreat location is near Round Top, Texas, a fun little town that is known for its massive antique market. Vendors were setting up when we were there for the following week. 

Another neat place near Round Top is Festival Hill. They have a beautiful chapel that was moved there. We love to visit it each year. Here is a website that has a panoramic view of the inside:

Animals Rescued from Flooding in North Texas

I found a post on a blog describing one of the Humane Society of North Texas rescues. Hermine wreaked even more havoc north of us in the Dallas area last week and rescuers had their hands full.

Check out this great photo showing a group of the Tunis sheep being saved. What fantastic temperaments, that's why I love them!
