A Bucolic Little Farm in Rural Clackamas County

Whats New @ Kalik Acre?

We have been VERY busy bee’s at Kalik Acre and not very good about sharing!  Coda kidded about six weeks ago and had two darling bucklings that look just like Daddy!  Both were snatched up almost immediately and should be weened and ready for their new homes in a week or so.

In other goat news, the flock is going to be on loaner for a couple weeks to help do a little goat-scaping to an urban backyard turned jungle.  This will be our first foray into the rent-a-goat scene, so we will see how the goat family feels about it.  The pony girls will probably be happy to have meals all to themselves, and the coyotes my be disappointed in the reduction of potential meals while we mend the fence and install a game cam to see who we are really dealing with in the lower 40 (inches).

Mama Maran is setting a clutch and these babies will be a very welcome addition.  Something has been working away at the flock and though the night pen is working well, the predators don’t seem adverse to daytime visits.

May 31st Elizabeth will be taking a Pet Partners class as the first step toward her and Poco becoming a therapy horse team.  This is very exciting news and a very big part of the reason for the micro mini flock at Kalik Acre.  We have received so much therapeutic benefit from the herd that we can’t help but want to share.

And the big news is the entire yard has been re-landscaped.  Living on our little hill comes at a price.  Everything has been gradually eroding and sliding away for the last six or seven years and we didn’t even know how to get on top of it.  Turns out that having the materials to repair it, delivered to your driveway is a great motivator.  2500 lbs of tuscan roman stone later, 14 yards of bark and 7 yards of 1/4 minus and we are in love with Kalik Acre again.

Relay for Live/Bark for Life & the American Cancer Society are causes we really wanted to get behind.  With our granddaughter battling leukemia in Texas, it is something we could do here to feel a part of the battle.  Toward that end, we hosted a fundraiser tea at the Acre and raised $120 for Relay.  It was a blast and we can wait to do it again.

That is really just the tip of the iceberg.  If you want to know more, you will just have to stop by!  Remember us for your dog training needs and you will not find a more fun and 10322797_529772130462439_4870226512614072976_nsetting to board your dog.  We do pick-up and delivery if needed and can accommodate dogs with certain behavioral or health issues. Come for a tour!
