The good news is, Kenny found my camera. The bad news is, Kenny had destroyed the USB cable so I could upload pics. I’ve ordered another one and it should be here tomorrow. I can’t wait because as soon as he found it I went around snapping pics like a madwoman! Poor Kim had come […]

Ouch!

No calf yet. This is just unbelievable. Her bag is HUGE! Like full sized and she’s swelled so much I can’t believe she can get through the chicken coop door, but still no baby. Remember how I was going to be a horse owner without ever getting kicked? Yeah, well that went out the window […]

Beef, it’s what’s for dinner

No calf yet. We took the kids to see Shrek 3 yesterday and I think Ed and I enjoyed it every bit as much as they did. If you liked the other Shrek movies, you’ll love this one. We arrived home to more rain which seems to have become our standard weather now. Trying to […]

I used to live here

I’ve determined that cows are no fun for midwives or nervous owners. We have no calf yet. Now we do have all the signs of labor — up and down, up and down, no food, can’t get enough food, cranky, discharge, hugely full milk bag, and so forth. I can’t say I’m disappointed because the […]

Hopefully a calf soon

I *think* Moo might be ready to calve! She’s been in the chicken coop since early this morning and refused to eat all day. She keeps getting up and then laying down again – she’s not interested in food at all. I can’t really tell because she keeps wacking her tail all around, but I […]

I’m on a list!

May 20th, 2007 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Granted, I’ve been on many lists before in my time but I think this is kinda cool. My internet went down on Friday and I called in to the phone company to inquire. After explaining that I work from home and have 4:59 minutes to spare each half hour before I’m penalized (and go from […]

Calf update — nothing. Although she’s spending a LOT of time laying in her chicken coop. The boys are out of school beginning next week so I’m trying to figure out my new work schedule. I’m thinking I’ll do 2 hrs in the morning and then 2 hrs in the later evening but I’m not […]

I took the day off, sorta

The oats are coming, the oats are coming! The sprouts are about 4″ tall now and we only have a few washed areas that I’ll hand spread some brome. I can’t wait until July when we have a nice tall crop of oats for the horses to enjoy. I made an executive decision a while […]

Here is how we wash the horse, wash the horse

May 13th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Yesterday we lined up the horses for a horsewash and it went very well. Considering Thursday’s trauma (Smoke flipped over backwards and Fire tried to go up and over Brian) I’d say it was dang near smooth. Fire tried to bolt just once and then calmed down to a near standstill while Brian washed him. […]

Barn raising? No, barn cleaning!

When you think things couldn’t possibly get any crazier around here – well that’s when they normally do. From Saturday until yesterday, according to our neighbor, we’ve had nearly five inches of rain. Combined with the rainfall during the past month or so and we’re looking at around 15″ or more — that’s a LOT […]
