Life goes on……

March 31st, 2010 · 2 Comments · Horses

Grammy was in ICU until yesterday then was transferred to a rehab facility for a while.  Thank you for the good thoughts and emails – much appreciated!  And as the saying goes, life goes on…… I could not be luckier in my choice of husbands – well the first time was really REALLY bad, but […]

The Suicide Chronicles

March 26th, 2010 · 9 Comments · Book Writing

I started the second chapter of my book the other day and it’s a doozy!  In this chapter I give a brief history of just how I came to marry Ed and end up in the hospital while pregnant with Darren.  It’s impossible to talk about, even briefly, the events leading up to that point […]

Herd mentality

March 25th, 2010 · 3 Comments · Horses

Lily, Jen’s new paint horse, is getting along well with the others.  She’s not dominant in any way so she passed muster with our lead mare, Tess, and she’s apparently cute enough that all the geldings love her – as evidenced by the many bites from love nips she has on.  I’m glad humans don’t […]

Sparky’s been a bad, bad girl. Again.

March 24th, 2010 · 3 Comments · Cows

To refresh your memory, I made this post in April, 2008 ~~ This is a 10 month old cow, Sparky. Sparky needs to quit nursing. Sparky does not want to quit nursing. Her humans decided to force the issue and prepared for the event with an electric fence. Sparky broke through the electric fence, ran […]

What’s wrong with this picture

March 23rd, 2010 · No Comments · Life on the farm

I’ll tell you what’s wrong – the bull is in the horse corral.  He’s not supposed to be in the corral. Really?  I’m not supposed to be in here? What about in here?  Can I be in the horse stall? After calling Ed in a panic because “the bull’s out!” I remembered that he’s just […]

An actual conversation with my husband

March 22nd, 2010 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Him: “Hey, when you go into town this afternoon can you pick me up another pair of work gloves.  Moo ate mine this morning.” Me: “What do you mean the cow ate your gloves?  You mean she chewed them up?” Him: “No.  I mean the cow ate my gloves.  You know.  Ate.  As in, she […]

A repost of sorts

March 20th, 2010 · 3 Comments · Book Writing, Ed's Health

I started this blog in 2006 thinking it would be a nice way to journal about my experiences here on the farm because I’ve never lived in the country and after we moved here I immediately became the laughing stock of my county.  I will never forget the look on our farmer’s face when I asked him […]

The new girl in the pasture

March 19th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Horses

Jen got a gorgeous new mare the other day and she was delivered early evening.  Since it was too close to nightfall and we wanted to work with her the next day, I stuck her in the small pasture for the evening and figured I’d put a buddy in with her for company.  I tried […]
