What a wonderful day on the farm! After work this morning I went out to see Moo and, since we’ve been letting the goats back out, she was laying on her side getting groomed by Buck’s horns. As soon as he saw me he took off so she let me pet her for a while […]

Hey, you really can learn something about horses from books! As I walked into the front pasture with our three horses a while ago I saw the hot wire (it’s not hooked up) laying in the field and started pulling it up, hoping one of the horses hadn’t gotten tied up. As I started rolling […]

What a productive weekend here on the farm! Ed managed to rig up a bar/chain combination to hold the motor on my van in the air while I helped him drop the transmission out of the van. Poor van – all it’s insides are spread willy nilly throughout the garage. Our other boarding family came […]

I did the coolest thing last night! Ed and I have been talking about how to divide our acreage up for pastures and include a riding pasture with arena and round pen. This is very difficult to do while standing on the ground walking around and it’s hard to imagine where the fencelines should go. […]

Rain rain go away…… It stormed all morning yesterday so I wasn’t able to get outside until the afternoon. I had a real breakthrough with the horses though — Smoke came right up to me when I walked in the pasture and this time while I was scratching her all over, she turned her head […]

Oops! I noticed a couple weeks ago that I was getting a lot of spam/stock tip quotes in my comments so I “thought” I went into my template and added the feature where the commenter types in the word verification. Apparently I also enabled the “moderate comments” button and I had many comments awaiting moderation! […]

This is what psoriatic arthritis looks like and keep in mind, this was AFTER Ed started taking the med that worked — this, believe it or not, is in the healing stages. You can see that there are a few inches like a stripe down his leg that weren’t covered with it, but for the […]
