New additions

As was mentioned in a previous post, I have one cow named Randy who is a goober, but Friday night we added two calves to our farm. They are new, so I don't know what to think of them yet, but the moment we saw them we came up with their names, Rambo, and Jackson.

These two little cows bring a lot of vigor to the farm and the older cow randy has taken a liking to them. The moment we led the calves into the yard, Randy's ears perked up and he watched the little calves with amazement, as if he had never seen a cow before.

I can't wait to get to know these calves and enjoy them as new additions to our family farm

I live on what some would call a farm, I have a few chickens, 4 goats, 4 ducks, 5 guinea hens and a young calf named Randy, Randy is a special cow, he loves to play with the goats, and his stomach is almost never full, I often find him sucking water in abundant amounts. He was named after a farmer that gave us the calf, but I still am partial to believe his name derived from the famous american idol judge, Randy Jackson. Often times as I look to out to the farmyard, I see my cow chewing on something. "What is it?" I think to myself. Some days it would be proper food, but other days when I look upon the hill, Randy will be chewing on a feed bag, or part of our chicken coop. Apparently Randy enjoys the fiber. I just can't come up with the heart to tell him that the feed bag doesn't have any nutritional value.

The Pond!

We recently finished filling up our lake, it is really big and blue, In the summer we will have lots of parties and dive into the pond from our trampoline, I will show updates with pictures

Why The name?

There have been many people asking me why I call this web log what I have. The short answer to this question deals with a more meaningful purpose than what you might have originally guessed. I chose the name "whitewashed tar" for a reason that deals with the use of an oxymoron. The term "Whitewashed Tar" talks of hypocrisy. A common occurrence, especially in the United States.
Many people who live in our "blessed" country have this hypocrisy thing down pat. They do what they have to on the outside to look fine and be politically correct. They get up, get their church clothes on, their "whitewash", if you will, and go to church like good little people. But on the inside there is something that is not so great, an amazing deal of tar that lies underneath this whitewash. I feel like helping to illustrate the importance of becoming what I would call a christian. Someone who is not only a clean vessel on the outside, but a pure vessel on the inside.

A Fresh Start

I have decided to open a blog, because some of the things that I have experienced in my lifetime are revelant and open for ample discussion, I will address the oxymorons our soceity has produced for us to believe
