IHi, I’m Annemaria Duran. I moved out to the country seven years ago to have more land. I love all aspects of country living. From my big garden (and greenhouses we built) to the animals that teach my kids responsibility.

First, we got chickens, then ducks. Now we also have a turkey, sheep, goats, and rabbits. I’m always learning and love sharing it!

I own a homestead with my wife and kiddos. I enjoy caring for our goats with my 14-year-old daughter, feeding our chickens with my 11-year-old, and fixing goat fences with my 8-year-old son. We have lots of various farm animals all of which my family love.

Hi, I’m Talitha van Niekerk, and I made the leap to farm animal ownership when I decided to fulfill my lifelong passion to own horses.

Now, over a decade later, I run a public stable facility on 180 acres of land, caring for over 75 horses of all breeds and sizes. I love to write about my experiences, share the knowledge I have gained and help others achieve their life’s passion to live on the land.

Nicky Hosek, Author with her horse

I’ve been around horses since the age of six and, 15 years ago, I leapt at the chance to leave behind my London-based career in journalism and start life on a small holding in South Africa.

Sharing my experiences with horses, goats, and other farm animals allows me to flex my writing skills and help others find their way to a happy, healthy herd.
