Seek and Ye Shall Find . . . But What?

I'm sure you've had the experience of searching for something on the internet.  A page comes up with various sites and you click on the most interesting ones.  If you're like me, you were just glad to get whatever you were looking for and you didn't stop to think about the mechanics of how your search results appeared on your computer screen.

A short time ago I discovered that Blogger keeps stats on each blog.  I can see which are my most popular posts, which servers people use to get on my blog, what countries they are from, and probably most interesting of all, the keywords people were searching for that led them to my blog.

I can see a list of search keywords for Right Now, Today, The Past Week, The Past Month, and All Time.  So what brings people to Zephyr Hill Farm?  Here goes:

zephyr hill farm-28

medial patellar ligament
splitting-24 (That's the surgery about to be performed on Brandy in the photo at left.)

cellulitis in horses-20  (That's the complication Brandy had after the surgery.  I'll spare you a repeat of the gross photos!)

medial patellar ligament in animal-5  (More of the same.)

patella tractors-4  (Hmm, what's that?)

cattle headgates-15

cattle headgate plans-13

head gate-11

homemade cattle head gate-4

cattle head locking gate-2

t bone the steer-2

california bander-14  (That's the rubber band thing-y that Herb used to turn T-bone into a steer.)

potato condo-12

abi spreader-16

used abi manure spreader-1

And then there were the less popular topics, but still searched for often enough to appear on my blog stats:

molting chickens in winter-2

dexter cattle in snow-2

house with pasture filled with cows-2  (I hope they found the pastoral scene above.)

pasture poultry tractor-2

pig crate pickup truck-2

temple ladies-2  (Whaaat?)

"pickled tink" translation  (Whaaat, again?  How on earth did that search bring someone to Zephyr Hill Farm?  I don't have a clue, but if they found what they're looking for, I'm tickled pink!)

One recent search that has now disappeared from my stats was "shemar moore and wife."  I know how that person got sent to my blog, but I have to laugh at their disappointment upon discovering that my Shemar Moore is a black rooster, albeit one with a Criminal Mind!  Yes, sad to say, my Shemar is the bad guy, and he's been sentenced to capital punishment for attacking the hand that feeds him!

So if you found us by accident, welcome, and I hope you find what you're looking for!  And if you're a regular visitor to Zephyr Hill Farm, we're glad you came back!  You never know what you might find here.  After all, there's a reason I didn't call this blog "Dull Days on Zephyr Hill Farm."
