My Animals

Nelly carefully herding a baby chicken

Nelly is my “number one”, no animal will ever be able to take her place. She is adorable, funny, and my best friend.

Nelly is a brown and white, working line Border Collie. She believes that if it is a living thing, it must. be. herded.

She is four and a half years old. Everybody that meets her thinks she is a puppy.

She does not tolerate bad manners from other dogs, all of my foster dogs quickly learn good doggy manners from her.

She is gorgeous, and my main photography subject.

I have a mixed flock of free-range chickens, at the moment I have 5 adults and many babies. I plan on getting up to a flock of 10 birds by next year. At the moment I have a Speckled Sussex, Light Brahma, Andalusian(blue & splash), Crested Cream Legbar, Black Copper Marans, Tolbunt Polish, Blue Laced Red Wyandotte, and an Olive Egger. I plan on adding one Easter Egger to get up to 10 birds. They should all be laying by spring of next year! They’re all really cute, but I admit I play favorites. Carolina the Blue Andalusian is my favorite.

They like to “talk” to me every morning when I let them out of the coop. They come running, expecting treats, every time I call them

Buddy the cat

Buddy is about 8 years old, I’ve had him since he was a baby. He is very friendly with people, always begging to be pet.

One of his hobbies is searching for Nelly, then complaining about her existence when he finds her. He also likes to attack her any time she walks past, which makes Nelly herd him. It turns into a fun game of “herd the stubborn sheep(cat)” for her.
Buddy stands his ground against foster dogs, so they usually just ignore him. I now live on my own and Buddy lives with my parents. I still see him most days.
