How We Met

We needed a new trail horse and found Cowboy's ad. The prior owner is so sad to let him go, but we are happy he is coming to join our horsey family.

Cowboy has arrived at his new home Friday, 4/13/2012. First all the horses are inside the barn to begin getting used to each other.
4/14/2012 - Cowboy was in the Round Pen for preliminary introduction to his new stablemates. Rocky likes him!! Yay
4/17/2012 I rode Cowboy on the trail 1st time. He was out already twice for testing with my daughter riding and was good. :)
4/24/12 Cowboy is turned out with Rocky for the 1st time & they do great together - as in nothing happened.
5/14/12 - 1st away trail ride for Cowboy (with Comet)! Cowboy is a champ!
5/26/12: Cowboy is turnout with the full herd on the pasture. Everything goes well but he's staying close to Rocky when the others approach.
6/10/12: Saratoga Battlefield National Park Trailride
6/23/12: Grafton State Park Ride
8/7/12: 1st solo trail ride on Cowboy
8/4/13 - Cowboy shows in English Open Pleasure and in his 1st show took 3 blues and the show champion for Open Pleasure! Way to go, Cowboy (& rider, my daughter).
Nov 7&8, 2013: Cowboy is ridden at the Equine Affaire in W.Springfield MA by my daughter in two of Julie Goodnight's clinics. The training my daughter has been doing on Cowboy is showing. I am so proud of the team!
Dec 25 2014 - I gave Cowboy to my daughter for Christmas.

I will post the pictures of the two turtles on Kisses page if I find some time today. The water in the pond was super cold for them, and a shaded area. Pen is about 5ft tall, 6 w/8-10 feet long. I did replant the iris, added Stella O Day, and threw in some flower seeds. It already had hosas, Snow on the Mt, and another small ground cover plant, now all we need is warm weather so they can stay out in their new home. Temps were barely 40 when I came in from feeding.
Pickles is really starting to get better, let me walk him all the way to the pasture today, even if everyone else had run ahead of him, near the gate, he started to get antsy, so I walked him the other way, and then back to the gate. He is still so fuzzy with baby fur.

Hoping to be able to pick up another corral panel, next week. Going to get one instead of 2. Waiting for a way to pick up the material to put a wall on Sadie's shade. Wish I had a truck instead of a car. Anxious to get it done. Leaving love and a vote.

Very strong winds, Monday. I was okay with it, because it blew the flies away. Lol. Sadie's doing well, sassy as ever. Love to watch her run. So beautiful. Love the sound of her hooves as they hit the ground, too. Hugs and a quick vote.

More rain today, like 5th day in a row. The temps are cool too, so outside work is like the rain....hit and miss. Rest of the week should be cool without too much rain. Been planting tomatoes in paper cups, for the garden. I do have about 20 tomatoes plants up about 6-8 inches, but these were a different kind. As long as it is raining, we will go for feed today, if we can get the topper back on the truck.

Since, most of you know, I sold Kisses to Stephanie last fall, and would like to make only two pages, one for Whisper and one for the little minis, first I will add Pickles, who came with Paisley from the rescue called Ryon's Rescue in Cannon Falls, Mn. I will try to get these done in the next few days....hopefully.

The last two days, the morning temps have been chilly, hate to say cold, but compared to a week ago, they are COLD. Ice on the water tubs, and back to my winter jacket and gloves. Warms up enough for a hooded sweatshirt, and we nearly have the garden tilled, adding sawdust, and plus all the wheelbarrows of chicken coop sand, and the manure from the little pony pen, just need to work it in better, and put back up the fencing....which we took down to make the pig fence, since they were cattle and pig panels. Think about using the orange plastic type of fencing since it is just to keep the chickens out.

Our grass is getting green, very short, can not even pull enough for the bunny...down to only one...we will see how long that last. Been short spring drizzles, mostly at night, but we need a good thunder shower. Our 2 young sows came a few days earlier, but have already "plowed" up most of their pen. They are friendly, and eating their grain. Made them a small mud puddle, since pigs can not sweat, so need mud to cool off. House is not finished for them yet. So many small project, I am working on, and NOT one of them, spring cleaning.

Whisper and the little herd are sending you a vote. Going to try to get a few wheelbarrow full of manure out of the little ponies pen. They like to go, right by the outside door, and it seems that does not get clean, because it has been frozen. Broke the fence post ponder yesterday, and had to call in the one we borrowed out. He brought it back, and will fix the broken one. Today, it feels like rain, so baby chicks have to stay inside, unless it gets sunny and warmer. They seem to enjoy being outside. I put some warm sand inside there cage, so they could play in it, they like to lay and dust their feathers in sand or soil. The big chickens have holes down about a foot or so, where they dust.

I went to Tractor Supply and bought Sadie a 6 week supply of Farnam Equi Spot fly drops. Seems to work right off. The flies on her face disappeared. Wish I had a free shopping spree to that store. I love it! Leaving love and a vote.

Again quick votes. Just back from looking at the pigs for sale. Going to take 2 young sows, hopefully they are bred. Now to work on a pen, they are the hard critter to keep in. Electric fence low to the ground, but have to check always to keep them from pushing dirt up against it.

My son graduated from the class he was taking and left, Friday, to go back to Germany. He has another year, there. Hoping he'll be stationed closer to me next year.

ell, we finally have some nice weather, the last few days have been nice, temp wise it was in the 40's, but the wind was so bad it made it seem like it was cold, and had to wear winter hat and jacket. Today, we ran to pick up an incubator about 100 miles one way, stopped at Fleet Farm, to finish spending my $$$$. The sun was so welcoming, but not home to enjoy it doing things outside. Now, its almost time to start evening chores and getting everyone inside for the night. Maybe Spring will decide to stick around this time.

I'm back! I had an amazing visit with my family, in Georgia, over the weekend. Austin and I arrived Thursday night, my oldest son, who I hadn't seen in almost 5 years, arrived Friday night, and my brother threw a redneck cookout on Saturday. Eric left on Sunday to go back to Alabama. He's leaving, at the end of the week, to go back to Germany. Broke my heart to see him leave, but so thankful for beautiful, precious time with him. Austin and I got back late Monday. Thank you for remembering Sadie while I was gone. She's doing good. Wearing that fly mask that hides her gorgeous face. Lots of love and a vote.

Yesterday, we got up to 40, and I think today should be nice. Snow is starting to melt already, just to make more mud, if that is possible. Now it snowed over night and softly raining now. So, hopefully, all the snow will be gone.
Was taking old hay off the garden, to the compose pile, they are falling apart to made lots of trips finally, got smart and used the wheelbarrow. This weekend, should be nice, so hope to get to the Central Wis Horse sale on Saturday, its a 4 day sale, but I never make plans, because I know I am not "aloud" to go to sales.....:), at least without someone to sit on my hands. Whisper and the little herd are leaving you a vote.

Thank You for the kind words about Trixie. We always got all the grandkids pets, as soon a her Mom, got tired of them, but the good thing is we always get the grandkids, most of the summer, and weekends, because they want to be where their animals are. Of course, they are getting older, and now sports come first, but they always call or come each weekend. The turtles, are mud turtle or wood turtles. They are still in a tote, with lots of big rocks to crawl on. I have to put the fish back into the smaller tank today, and make a platform for the turtles to crawl on. I have BIG plans for the summer....just have not told hubby yet. Of course, I never told him about the new goat yet either....:).

We had a good and also bad day yesterday. My son called to ask if I still wanted a turtle or 2, someone at work was going to sell his, so we drove 100 miles to pick up the two turtles, and a small tank. Tito and Tiana, while there went to Farm and Fleet and picked up cat, dog, horse, chicken, baby chick food and light bullbs, and came out of Wausau a lot broker, and also had to put in a order from Richard, 7 yrs old, school fund raiser. We left early, because my other two grandsons stopped in at home, and said Trixie, their Sheltie, who lives with us, (long story instead of them, along with all their other pets) did not seem happy. I knew she did not feel good the last few days. She ate a good supper, and later on around 8 she started throwing up, and fell over, litter just left over, and a few minutes later she was dead. We hated to take her out this morning, Shadow, the Golden, was so nervous, like she did something wrong. Trixie was 17 yrs old, we have cared for her since she was about 2-3 mts old.

We are still having winter storm warnings, yesterday schools closed at noon, just north of us they received 9 inches of snow, and with those high winds, you could not see across the lawn to the barn. 8-10 of snow today, is what its calling for. Here were had 5 this morning, and highs should get to be 25-30, but next week warmup time....I heard 40's and maybe even a 50. Wish it would get nicer, so I can work more with Pickles and Paisley.

This one of my best hatches, 75 percent, but I have a lot of improving to do. I am still a beginner, usually I only do 3 batches a year. Lucky me, I am on 3rd batch already. I do try to sell some, at least to pay for feed, but last year there was a bann on selling chickens at swaps meets, so everyone that had chicks last year kept them and did not need more. The first 3-5 days I keep them in a tote, with oven grate holding the light up, once they are eating good, I move them to a rabbit cage, and a bit a straw, and will have a light for heat until they feather out, about a month or more depending on the weather. From there, they go out to the coop in a little room, or calf hutch with a run cage, and get locked in at night so nothing gets them. Right now we have snow and temps this week will be in the 20. Yesterday, some of the eggs were frozen, so just boiled them up and fed some to the dogs and cats, but usually just mash them up for little chicks. Sorry, this is long, so days I forget to stop.

We are still having cold weather, seems like for the rest of the week plus a few days and then "slow" warm up. But this is Wisconsin after all. Seen 3 tiny baby goats yesterday, about the size of a cat, all curled up in the hay, open shed with their MaMa. So spring is on its way. Went to get two other roosters, for my flock, and with give my two away to a family that needs them. The last 3 baby chicks of mine did not make it, but I feel blessed with 33. I will sell some for 3 dollars each, and give a few more to the 4-H kids. I wish they were easier to tell boys from girls, other than my sister says, rooster make alot of noise when held, and the girls don't, but she was the same one that gave me a doe rabbit, and later my Crystal had 9 baby bunnies. Never trust your sisters.

The weather alone, makes a person feel miserable. We are getting snow again, hazard conditions is what it is called. Some schools to the North are closed, and calling for a few more inches today, plus rain.

Whisper and the little herd are sending you a chilly vote this morning. We had 15 at one time, but it dropped a few degree, as the sun gets up. The hatch of eggs, in the incubator are hatching today, had 3 last night, now it sounds like a bunch of mice in there. It does not have a top you can see threw, so I peek in a 1/4 inch hole on the side. The other chicks I sold, so should be picked up today. Hope your weekend was good.
