Hey Y'all


Here I am, at my new blog. Jennifer, my eleven year old sister, will Lord Willing be taking over Growing Up Agrarian. For those of you who don't know me, I will go ahead and introduce myself.

My name is Tracy. I am sixteen, my birthday is in May, and I was born in Fort Worth, Texas. I grew up in Lubbock, Texas, and moved to Santa Anna, Texas when I was twelve. I hope to never leave this great state. I have lived on a farm since I was nine, when we got our first chickens. We have always had chickens since then. We raise Rhode Island Reds, and have dabbled in other breeds, but stayed true to this multi-tasking breed all the way. When I was eleven, I had Brangus heifer and a Limousine calf I bottle fed. We raised pygmy goats for quite awhile, but I hate goats. I have nothing against them except that they drive me crazy. I now raise Californian rabbits and Dorper sheep. We also raise Texas Longhorn Cattle. I am training to become a CTLR [Cattleman's Texas Longhorn Registry] Inspector. More on that in later posts. I milk a Watusi Longhorn cow every morning at five thirty. Her name is LouPita, which means Little Wolf. Her mother is the cow in the side picture. She looks a lot like her mother. Well, that's my ranching experience overview.

Like I said, I'm a Christian, a Sovereign Grace Baptist. I wear dresses and keep my head covered at all times, according to the Biblical Doctrines that are the foundation of my Faith.

My Family:

For those of you who know my Father, well, you know. I strive to be more like him every day. I admire him, and he seems to understand me more than I understand myself. For those of you who don't know my Father, well, Here's His Blog.

My Mother is a farm woman who is my comfort and joy. She is always there for me, and I love her to death. She is a amazing woman who never stops. She seems to work enough for my whole family. She teaches me a lot, too.

My sister, Jennifer,(11) is a bona-fide tomboy with a big heart. She loves climbing trees, sleeping under the big Texas sky. ( Can't blame her, what with the stars n' all. ) She catches frogs, fishes better than all of us, and loves animals.

My brother, Robert (10), well, ha, he's a boy. He's 110% boy. He is a adventurer, a builder, a troublemaker and a smart young man. He has a big heart, too, and loves taking care of Mom. He can build almost anything, and likes to fix things. Like the stupid ol' latch on the outhouse door.

Then there's Sarah (5). She is a remarkable little girl. She is too smart for her own good, and has a vocabulary the size of Texas. She can outsmart me, sometimes. She follows Robert and Jennifer everywhere, and is not afraid of jumping across a creek, climbing a tree, sleeping in a tent, picking up a bug, or petting a big ol' Longhorn on the nose.

Well, I am so glad you have made it to my blog and hope you stay tuned.



  1. Love the new blog, can't wait to see more on both blogs!!

    Dana sahm to 2 great boys, and new little one on the way!!

  2. Deadly horns there. How comfortable do you feel staying near them?

  3. Hey!

    I have commented a couple of time on your other blog.

    I love the colors of this blog of yours, very "country".

    I am seventeen. I just turned seventeen on July fourth, yep, you heard me right, Fourth of July, and I am not lying.

    I am striving to live a life as my Lord and Savoir has planned. I also strive to live for him. I will be graduating from high school next year. Hoping to find a job as a secretary.

    I hope that I will be married and have my own family when I am grown up and mature, if it is in His Will.

    That is a brief summary of my testimony. I hope to put my first post on my sidebar. I will let you know when that is up.


  4. Hey Pema,

    While the horns can be a little scary at first, one of the Pure Texas Longhorn traits is their gentle and non-aggressive attitude. You just stay away when they have a calf around. We have a bull in our pasture that lets you pet and scratch him. and he has pretty large horns.

    Thanks for your comment,


    Thank you for your comment as well.

    I think I do remember you from my last blog. Welcome to The Mellow Rose! Hope you stay tuned.

    I am currently looking for a housekeeping job, and have already graduated. I turned sixteen in May. That's neat that your birthday is on the Fourth!

    I also look forward to all that God has planned for me. And I also desire a family when and if the Lord sees fit.

    Will keep an eye on your blog for the updates.

    Thanks again,

  5. This was the most refreshing and frankly inspiring thing I have read on the internet in a long long while, maybe ever.
