Farm Fresh Stories

Like cocaine, farms have a way of taking over your life. Slowly but surely, all your time, money, and even your family, gets sucked into the farm. It starts slowly, just like a drug addiction. Horses are marijuana, the gateway drug. They pave the way for property, barns, and fencing. But horses lead to more dangerous vices--like goats, sheep, cows, and Border Collies!

I happened to look down and see the dead guy at my feet.  It startled me for a moment.  Here I was, in a dimly lit room, alone with a dead man, and I was going about my business as if he wasn't, literally, under my feet.  For a moment, just for a moment, I felt as if my heart had shrunk, much like the Grinch That Stole Christmas . . . that something so freakin' abnormal has become the natural order of business for me . I thought about it for a bit, shrugged, and then went back to work.

Welcome to the world of Failte Gate Farm

Every day I bounce between running a farm in the country and working as a CSI in a large metropolitan city.  For the longest time I believed that my city job was merely a way to pay my feed store bills, but over the years I've learned that these worlds are really just two sides of a coin.

"We begin to live when we have conceived life as a tragedy." W.B. Yeats

You cannot truly appreciate Life until you've been up close and personal with Death. Like the country song says, "Life ain't pretty, but it's beautiful." Every crime scene I walk into has a story, and it's not always the story I expect.

Every morning, the moment your feet touch the ground, your story begins. Often you decide whether the tale is a comedy or a tragedy, for most of the time, the story is simply in the perception. A comedy perceived, is a comedy achieved. In the end, I hope that something I have shared makes you laugh, makes you think, or makes you thankful for the gifts the Good Lord has given you.

 Life doesn't get more real than field mice in the morning and lab rats at night. Come and sit a spell with us. Enjoy the Circle of Life! You'll never look at a fly the same way again.

"Just what I needed with 4 inches of snow and ice on the ground. A good laugh with my morning coffee after going out in the cold to feed the horses. I love Trace! He is worth a million laughs."
