Welcome the new addition to our farm family!

August 12, 2010

Welcome our new little one, Wile Easterly Bowman. At three months and 6 days, Wile Easterly is a Blue Border Collie (looks more slate grey, like the color of Beacon..). Wile hails from Gloucester, Virginia near the Chesapeake Bay, and made the trip four hours home with us yesterday!

Wile's first day as a Bowman

Wile’s personality is quite a mix of confidence, trust, and happy-go-lucky laid back. So far he’s proven quick to learn no (“NO! Don’t heard the cat! No don’t carry my sandal around! No don’t bark at the llamas!) and even quicker to learn that Beacon means serious business when he gives his guttural, catty “back off, blue boy!” Beacon, to say the least, is not thrilled, but we look forward to the day when they are buds!

Mr. Easterly at 3 months

Jason is excited to have a truck-riding companion, as he’s already brought Wile down to the Mill Creek garden in the truck and says he rides beautifully. We hope he makes a great all around farm companion!

    Whoa Wile! You are very special to be inaugurated into the Bowman family. Earn your keep, herd those sheep, give love to the Beac(on)!

    super cute dog! and that’s coming from a confessed non-pet person, so it means more.

    can’t wait to read/see more Harrigan… and once we get a car, to plan a trip down. maybe in the fall?

    we miss you,

      Sam, coming from you, I believe he’s truly a beautiful dog!
      We would LOVE to see you in the fall! Russ would have to bring a guitar so we could relax under the stars with some music!
      It’d be great to have a visit, and there are some fun festivals in the Valley in the fall! Let me know when might work for you!
      Hoping the summer markets are treating you well! xoxo
      much love,
