Hi, my name is Cayla. My husband Michael and I were married in November of 2016 and moved to our home and what is becoming Oso Vino Farm in April of 2017. We began work to turn it into a farm that would work for our plans. I am a special education teacher and my husband is an engineer. We are still deciding the fate of our lovely farm, so look for updates on that in the future. What is driving that plan is our passions. Michael and I bond over a love of outdoors, gardening, and animals.

We are family oriented, and want to keep God as the guiding force in all we do.

We live near my family, but like to visit my husbands when we can in North Carolina. He is definitely North Carolina born and bred (Go Wolfpack). As for me, I have a degree from Kennesaw State University and one from Georgia Southern University. I grew up in the suburbs of Atlanta, worked in professional theater for a short stint, before deciding to reroute to teaching. Michael grew up in a small town in rural North Carolina.

Our current menagerie includes two horses, seven ducks, a dog, and a cat. We are expecting it to grow larger soon enough. Here’s the line up so far:

Holly

Holly- Holly is a nine year old Belgian Quarter Horse Cross. I have had her since she was four years old. She is approximately fifteen hands. Holly loves trail riding and hates FedEx trucks. She is almost always high up in the herd. She has a thing for grays as her buddies.

Zeus– Zeus is an 11 year old Tennessee Walking Horse. He is 15.3 hands. He loves to eat, and to go. He has endurance for miles, and is happy to keep going. He is happy to let Holly run their pasture.

Peeps

Peeps- Peeps has been with Michael for six years, making her seven years old. She is still playful with her favorite being the laser or anything with feathers. Her favorite spot is Michael’s lap.

Will

William- AKA Willy. This handsome boy is half Great Dane half Boxer. He is one hundred pounds of lap dog. He was a rescue and is two years old. He loves chasing the ducks, playing with the hose or any other sort of water, and destroying things he ought not.

Rocket- Rocket is one of the latest editions to our family. She is half blue heeler and half Australian Shepherd. This is a breed known as a Texas Heeler. She is about a year old now. She is too smart for her own good, having already learning to jump some fences, and open some gates.

The Ducks

Our flock of waterfowl (picture to come) includes 1 Welsh Harlequinn (Harley), 1 Golden 300 Hybrid (Goldie), 1 Toulouse Goose (Lucy), and 8 Buff Orpington Ducks. At this time we believe we have all hens.

The Chickens

These are Michael’s project. In an effort to curb my soft heart, I am not naming any except the two who are not for eating. We got one Bantam, known as Benny, and the only other solid black hen, Jet. The others were known as the Jets. They are a mix of a variety of breeds, besides the Bantom Silkie including one Orpington, and several New Hampshires.
