My nickname is Loopy and now you’ll know why

September 30th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Yesterday Ed and Nathan decided to move the shed so they spent most of the day in Newton which left me with the three boys while I ran errands, did my shopping gig, and worked at home.  Around 7:00pm Ed called to say they had it loaded and were on the road.  At that point, […]

How to ruin a horse, Part 1

September 29th, 2007 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

First let me say that all I know of training horses can be condensed into a very short paragraph.  I am not, nor am I claiming to be, any kind of a trainer.  But I understand common sense and I understand “the old way” of training them is literally to “break” the horse – break […]

Crazy cow, gay rooster, and now this

September 28th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

If the day ever arrives where all the animals on this farm begin acting normally, I’m not sure what we’ll do.  We’ve become so used to shuffling our feet and turning red as we describe their personalities and favorite oddball things.  Our latest surprise was that Old Man rooster turned out to be gay.  Don’t […]

Stellaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

It’s just not the same typing it out as hearing good old Marlon Brando say it himself.  Go ahead and spend the next 50 seconds listening  here and then come back. Go on, I’ll wait. OK are you back?  Alright, brace yourselves because I’ve got to break some big news.  I’ve hit the big time and […]

Goodbye summer, hello fall

September 26th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Holy toledo it was 47′ when I went outside for coffee this morning!  I do think summer is finally over and other than a few remaining days in the mid-80′s we’re probably moving into fall.  I always wish we had trees on our farm that showed beautiful color in the fall, but we don’t.  They’re […]

Thanks for the emails about Blue

September 25th, 2007 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

I received several emails after I posted about Blue returning to our farm and everyone agreed he’s just a gorgeous horse.  He is settling in nicely and seems to be accepting the fact that he’s #2 and not the alpha male at the moment.  Unfortunately his new owner was given the impression that he’d be a perfect riding horse […]

Ed and my damn brother-in-law, Nathan

September 24th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

First, my damn brother-in-law Nathan will be hereafter referred to as The Man That’s Crazier Than My Husband.  Just so you’ll know who I’m talking about. Usually I enjoy Nathan’s visits because he’s the only idiot that gets up earlier than me and arrives around 6:00am to enjoy coffee on the patio as the farm […]

I broke my Gmail

September 23rd, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

   I tell you what, when I insult people I don’t do it pansy-ass style, I really go all out.  And if I don’t get it done right the first time, I do it again for good measure.  Remember several months ago when Cousin Jeri was here visiting and we had the get-together at RB’s?  […]

It’s a small world after all

September 22nd, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

We boarded a horse named Blue for several months and I will admit, he’s probably the most beautiful horse I’ve ever seen.  He’s got the personality of a puppy, the confidence of a stallion, and the presence of a champion like none other.  When you see him run through the pasture it takes your breath […]

Goessel, Kansas; Pop. 560

September 21st, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Frankly, I think that population number is slightly exaggerated.  But let me tell you about my neighborhood, my town, my hangout, the crib.  Goessel has one paved road going through it and the town kind of branches off from it with dirt roads.  That’s right, all the streets in town are dirt.  The school system […]
