It’s 30′ at night now

October 31st, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

I don’t know about you, but that’s pretty cold.  I usually like to do my livestock chores immediately in the morning, sometimes before sunrise, but the past few weeks I’ve been gradually getting out just a little later so the sun’s starting to warm things up.  All the horses have beautiful winter coats coming in […]

Cheek bop

October 30th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

I’ve mentioned the local Natural Horsemanship trainer who uses a punch in the face with the horses he trains and wanted to share more about that, as well as a video.  Frankly, in my opinion, he can call it whatever he wants but it’s a punch in the face to me.  It’s hitting the horse, […]

And baby makes seven…

October 28th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Traci, the woman who sold us Buck, had a healthy baby boy, Luke, yesterday.  He was born at home after just a couple hours of labor and she called today to let us know.  I can’t wait until she heads this way and stops by and I get to hold him!  Congratulations Traci and family!!

Fun on the farm

October 27th, 2007 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Today will be spent pumping the lagoon (Ed couldn’t be  more thrilled!), training lessons, riding, and maybe enjoying a horse auction over at Kingman.  Does it get better?  I don’t think so.  I invited my Damn Brother In Law Nathan up, but for some reason he declined.  Huh, can’t imagine why.  You’d think the idea […]

I’m a damaged adult thanks to my Uncle Ray

October 26th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

I’m about to let out a deep-seated child abuse story that’s been kept from the public for far too long.  You know how when something SO traumatic happens to you as a child and then when you’re an adult something can trigger that memory and it suddenly floods back like it happened only a few […]

More baby steps from Buck

October 24th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Buck’s ground work is coming along nicely, although I’m simply reviewing each day the things I watched Anne practice.   His fear of the barn is completely gone and, in fact, he remains in there this afternoon after refusing to leave.  He’s obviously decided the barn is his and the giant round bale’s become his personal […]

Allow me to explain my sense of humor….

October 22nd, 2007 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

….. because I do have one, contrary to my husband’s opinion.  For the past 12 or 13 years we’ve been married he has harassed me endlessly for not having a sense of humor.  I do have one, trust me, I just prefer to call it intellectual wit or perhaps dry but something along those lines.  […]

Wish Kenny luck today

October 22nd, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Today is Kenny’s worst nightmare.  He’s been gearing up for this day now for about a week.  His plan was to help without being asked  around the farm and point out all the goodness that is Kenny.  He has been stressed and not sleeping well, nervous and edgy.   Today is the dreaded day that he […]

Our first serious accident on the farm

October 21st, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Have you ever done something that resulted in an accident then looked back on it and realized how simply it could have been avoided?  Worse, that you knew how to avoid it but in that flash you did exactly what you shouldn’t have done?  You have?  Really?  I never have.  Ha!  I do that on […]

Shopping with Lisa

October 20th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

During a visit with my sister-in-law, Trina, she ran to the store with me to help me out during a shopping check.  As I was explaining what I was doing we discovered that she was unaware of some technicalities at the store.  There are two little tricky things you can do with couponing and sale […]
