Wing and a Prayer Farm

Wing and a Prayer Farm is a happy place to live and grow. We raise and care for a variety of poultry, Shetland, Cotswold & Merino sheep, Registered Angora Goats, Princess Peppermint, the American Guinea Hog, bunnies, horses and ponies, dairy goats and honeybees, 2 Springer Spaniels, one little Border Collie pup, 7 cats and a hedgehog named Rosie. Our farm, in the Green Mountain State, is a beautiful pastoral homestead where the children have grown up barefoot and the pups can run around without a leash!

Lincoln, that’s his name! He’s Lily’s 1-day old ram lamb & he’s darn adorable & personable already. They’re out sampling grass next to the lamb-jug in the barn where they had a comfortable night. Lily is nursing well now, plenty of rest & food, no need to look for a safe place with her baby. What a fabulous surprise for the farm this fall!

Wednesday morning lamb cuddles. Lily, mama, is patient while I bond with her 1-Day old ram lamb.
