The Eagle has landed

While I was fixing my breakfast this morning, I kept hearing what I thought was a hawk screaming. But when I sat down to eat, I could see a large bird in the top of the old Shagbark hickory that stands near the pond, just beyond the edge of our front lawn.

I told Chuck to grab his binoculars, and I got the camera. We quickly realized it was an immature Bald eagle. So from our front porch, we got quite a show as it sat in the high branches of the tree, and then launched and wheeled above our heads, circling over the house for several minutes before it finally left the area.

New Artwork

I recently purchased some original Billy Jacobs sketches he'd offered from his Facebook page, and had them matted and framed at the Frame Shop here in Coshocton.   I think they did a wonderful job.

Somerhill Clementine

FINALLY!   A nice red doe from Handsome & Shaelah.   At 2 months, there is
very little I would change about her.  Excited to put her on the show table this fall!

FOR SALE(SOLD)


Somerhill Tiger Lily. 
Maple Glen Russet (red) x Somerhill Whitehorse (rew) Born 3-25-18. Both parents are registered, and have 1 leg each. Lily was shown last month, and got excellent comments from Stacy Easton-Martin. She remarked that although her torn ear was a DQ, she would make an excellent brood doe. I agree - she has great shoulders, depth and width, with round full, smooth hindquarters all the way to the table. Promising density, wool length, and sheen. If I did not keep such a small rabbitry, I'd keep her! $75 with pedigree.
