How We Met

Must have been the blue eyes!
We were going to visit some friends and passed a farm with a sign "Horses for Sale". We just had to take a look! When we saw Rocky, that was it!

Rocky is our 1st horse and he's been so much fun over the years from my daughter trying to ride him in English beginner shows (jumping talent zero) to Western and trail riding for me, which he prefers! He's been in a parade once and given lots of pony rides over the years. Other various experience includes vaulting horse, Dress-up Halloween shows, fun shows, summer camp... We took him to several County fair western shows just for fun too.

Nowadays, semi-retired due to navicular issues. Light riding only on trail loop or in pasture.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. OMG the heat and humidity sucks in plain English! We hit 88 with a feels like 90F! Honey and I got a 2 mile walk in at 10 am and then I took hay to the barn. Came up and stacked 100 pieces of wood and was drenched! Shower time again! Went to give them hay and fresh water at 2 pm. There was no way they were going out in that heat! Tomorrow is supposed to be about the same! I'd say Aug got here late for sure! Hello, it's supposed to be in the 60's and 70's! Not till late this coming week! Marion and the blondes.

I spent longer tearing off the rotten boards on top of the horses' pasture shelter. They weren't all as rotten as I'd thought, so I didn't get them all off yet. Then I had all this wood with nails in it (can't leave that mess around horses), so loaded it up and hauled it to the dump. Then had to go by the gas station to buy my son a soda as payment for helping me load it up (his help comes pretty cheap, lol). By the time I got home, it was too late to ride. Maybe today but maybe not Allie, since I only have one day available.
Anyway, hope you have a great sunday.

Yep, been working on kitchen floor since last Christmas, found a soft spot where tile would not stick down. Well, figured I would clean it up underneath and glue down the tile.....soounds easy and simple, well, that one spot turned into a 10 x 8 area, and still growing. I do a little at a time, when Mike is not around, but the other day, he said, "Well, I see it is not going away, so might as well help." Under the rug under all this is a wooden floor....I peeked!! So hopefully, I can sand it down and have what I always wanted. But the ceiling is 12 ft high, so I will really feel short in there.
Today, we took apart the first round bale feeder, we have 4 of them. 3 were buffalo feeders, so very heavy duty, but each one had something wrong with it, so we have them opened to the outside to move bales in, picture a "C" shape, so gate or panel, the "C" shaped feeder, and then gate/panel again. But all the old hay has rotten down alot, and I just haul 7 loads this morning to "another" area, that I know will just look beautiful planted in flowers, since I already "buried" acorns in there, and will see what comes up in the spring. I had froze and thawed these acorns for awhile, so they might even start this fall, but not likely. Going to visit my Mom now, and see how many more apples she does not want. Peeled 5 5 gallon bucket of apples, frozen the slices for winter. Now I have blisters next to my thumb.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well did it get hot and humid today! The breeze kinda took a hike too! Honey and I got out early this morning for our walk. Got home and waited for Ingrid to here and play with Bullseye to see how donkeys react to different things and people. Of course my boy loves people and don't care about things. She brought a tarp with her to see what he'd do, he didn't even care! He got lots of peppermints from them. Then I turned the kids out, was about 82F degrees and still out there. Wood man came with my first two cords of wood! They ran a little in the pastures when the big truck was dumping it. Then settled down. Then Erin came from Grateful Doggies and got the 6 stacks of newspapers and the two big boxes of filled bones for the dogs! Finally broke for lunch at 4:30, but brought the horses in first, Indy as having a fit the flies were really getting to him. Tomorrow it's going to be even hotter, so they will probably be staying in for sure! Marion and the blondes.

Congrats on your son's wedding! Hope all goes well with the planning.~~~~~~~~~~

Whoop Whoop...my boy made HOTD today! I just happened to drop in and I saw his pic! Thanks so much everyone at HC for putting him in the spotlight. Today he got a workout in the round pen and then a good rinse down. He did great for not being worked in so long. Tomorrow he can get some treats!

How far do you have to travel for the wedding?? Now days, most weddings are held in a banquet hall of a motel, and that is good business for them.
Pellet stove is just a back up, or to use when we have those cold south winds. In the kitchen there is just 1 short heating pipe for a room that is 12 high, 15 x 13 and no insulation on the north walls, which is all built in metal cabinets. Original ones from when the house was first built. They always had a wood stove in the kitchen, and as I tear up the old flooring, I can see why they built right over the top....hot coal marks all over the floor.
Very hot today, not sure if it feels that way because I am haul manure from under the lean-to. Usually I do 3 loads then stop, today, I did 3, then peeled a ice cream pail of apples sliced, and went out and did 3 more wheelbarrow full. Running out of room, because Joe's old truck is parked there.
We put the steers and horses in the small pen by the garden, because grass there is getting so long. Nice and cool there because of the trees, but no electric fence, and one steers always manages to hook his horns on the wire, and take it down, so I have to be outside while they are in the pen. Just put them in, because another hour will have to start getting ready for Church.

Hope the wedding plans and the weekend go well. Maybe go "grocery shopping" at some point (aka, riding), lol.
Another sunny hot day yesterday. Finished cutting all the grass, ran an errand or two, cleaned out the kids' sink drain (it had quit draining), laundry and dishes and supper. Could've gotten in some groundwork with Allie or a quick ride on a QH, but felt very run down all day, so I didn't horse. I'm hoping to maybe get on Allie today and also start working on the shelter roof that blew off. My daughter informed me last night that she's in "desperate" need of a phone charger, lol, so I guess I'll be going downtown at some point too. Gotta coordinate going out around the college football traffic.
Well, hope you have a great saturday.

Your son's wedding is just about the same time as when I will get to be a great-grma. How many children do you have. Pity my poor parents with 10 kids and 8 of them girls....luck Mom like to sew, she made most of the dress for weddings. She made all my bridemate's dress
We had lots of storm warnings for just north of us. Mid-morning sky got very hard, and had thunder and lightening show, some rain but not long. Then it got HOT, about 80. Went and picked apples by my Mom, and visited with her awhile. So all afternoon, I peeled apples, lots of the smaller apples went straight to the horses. Lillie's I am still chopping up, and of course the rabbits and guinea pigs enjoy them too. I froze about 25 qts, in ice pail pails.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well hot and some humidity to start out, then the humidity got blown away with a cool breeze! But temp was 80F. Honey and I got in our 2 mile walk. Then I went and got Paige tacked up for a lunge and ride. She's moving better with the shoulders with wearing the Back On Track Shoulder Guard. Got some nice loping out of her too. Not the slow pleasure lope, but collected and the Ranch Riding lope. Felt good! Got them out for like 2.5 hours, breeze was nice and kept the flies at bay! But Indy's pasture is getting depleted! Moving him to another one tomorrow if it's not super hot. Sat, Sun and now Mon going up into the high 80's! UGH! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Hopefully you can squeeze a ride in over the weekend. Fun time's coming up at the wedding! Well it got hot and humid today! Honey and I got our walk in a little later than normal this morning, but was still 75% in the shade! We did our 2 miles. Then I went and hit Wally World for groceries, want to make something over the weekend in the crock pot and needed just about everything! Got home and the truck was reading 82F, so I turned them out right away! But it was a little humid and very little breeze, they only lasted about 2 hours. Bugs were a pain! So in the barn in front of their fans! Hoping to ride tomorrow late morning, and hope it's not as hot! Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a good day! Weather wise too, but a little hot, but some breeze! Went down to the Acme and Greg donated about $400 worth of small and large filled bones for the doggies! They will be great for them in their crate during the day to chew and play with! About 60 of them! WOW! Got home and Honey and I did our walk, about 1.75 miles as the humidity was getting to me a little. Then I mowed the lawn, poor mower is blowing oil worse each time! But I got it done! Then got the kids out for a couple of hours, flies were a little pesky! A few of you asked about the hock injections. Yes it depends on the horse and how long they last. I've been lucky to get about 18 months out of them. They do both hocks and all three joints, lower, middle and upper. It's just like me getting my knees injected, same stuff! Went to visit Kevin and Winter, Winter gets her sutures out tomorrow and off comes the cone! She was kissing my like crazy! Loves her Aunt Marion! Marion and the blondes.

We had rain yesterday, nice today, but very chilly early this morning, and I think rain tomorrow. I listen, but sometimes, it goes in one ear and out the other, and forgets to stop inbetween. :)
Still working on cleaning under the lean-to, only take out about 3-4 loads a day. Have to find a new flower bed to make, but thinking about redoing the one around the telephone pole. Too much grass is growing there. So tomorrow will try to dig out some of the plants, and start that bed over. Long day today, my eyes are tired. Dominic is sick now with the flu that Mike had, we went to Phillips to pick up his school work for him. Didn't have much, and brought some food for him but forgot 7-UP, his Dad called a bit ago, said he was still sick.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well we got lucky and no rain, just some wind from Jose! It stayed east of us and on the coast mostly! Sun was even out part of the day while south and east of us got rains! So Honey and I did a 1.75 mile walk today. Then my day was the best it's been in a long time! Kayla came up and rode Paige. I had her groomed and tacked and just finishing lunging when she got here. OMG, she dropped the reins, I mean a pleasure drap in them and rode her, she moved beautiful! No marey faces, no tail swishing, no pinned ears, nothing but a happy face and licking her lips half the time when Kayla stopped to pat her on the neck! Yes, she agrees, hocks are a little sticky, so I'll have them injected the first week of Oct. Kayla's gonna try for once a week to come and ride her! I'm so happy! This will be the first good nights sleep in a long time! After that they all went out for a couple of hours. Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. So it was so foggy this morning, I couldn't even see my barn from the house! It's only about 125 feet away! It did burn off and got a little humid early in the day, but then a breeze kinda came about! Honey got a 2 mile walk when I got home from the truck servicing. Then I just turned them out to enjoy the pasture time, as tomorrow we're supposed to get some of hurricane Jose along the coast with rains inland and some winds. If all goes well weather wise, Kayla that used to work and ride Paige a couple of years ago is coming up to work with her and I. She's really good and knows how to feel which leg if any that she could be off on, and is really good about feeling for hock issues. So I can't wait! Then we'll go from there on what's going to be the next step. Marion and the blondes.

Yesterday wasn't much fun around here. Got an email from the algebra teaher that there was unfinished work that would get 0s if not done by mon, so Madison and I spent 3 or 4 hours working, much against her will, on algebra. I got a few little chores done late at feeding time, but was otherwise inside all day. I did find a decent price on west nile/wee/eee vaccines and ordered them.
Well, headed to work today and tomorrow, so I'll probably not be on tuesday. Hope your week gets off to a good start

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well another nice day, up to the high 70's and finally got a breeze around noontime. A little humidity before that. It was hot riding in the indoor, temp in there was about 82, but not that bad really. Paige was good, just have to have that rear looked at, she will jog up really collected and long trot beautifully, but just don't want to collect at the lope that good. So that's telling me the hocks need injecting. Honey and I did a 2 mile walk again this morning. Kids were out for another 2.5 hours, pastures are being kept nice and trimmed! LOL! Football Sunday, so far a couple of my favorite teams won, but the Jets got smashed! Marion and the blondes.

How's your weekend going?
I did go see Buck in the morning, figured I'd kick myself if I didnt. He has a totally different teaching style from the big clinicians in that he doesn't spoon feed you; you've got to watch and listen closely to learn cause he's only gonna show you once. The riders who wanted help got it, the ones who didn't ask for help didn't get it no matter how bad they were falling apart. But that's fair. I picked up a couple new ideas, things to try a little differently, and I got to practice on sweet Gracie bareback in the evening.
Got 2 big round bales bought for the winter, (need 2 or 3 more), trimmed little Cinni, did groundwork with Allie, and my friend came over and cut the risers for the deck stairs. Had a funny thing happen at feeding time: I was hooking the lead rope to Dee's halter when she decided to rub her head on me and somehow, the lead snap wound up snapped on her nostril, lol. Boy, was she surprised by that! In all my years with horses, I've never had that happen.
Well, headed to church. Still loving our "new" pastor and his family. We celebrated their 1st year with us back in august; can't believe it's been that long. Anyway, hope you have a great sunday.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well it went up to 79 today with a little breeze, but it was hot and humid in the indoor! So on went all the ceiling fans and door fans! Honey and I got in a nice 2+ mile walk in this morning. Then the arena was cooled off and I worked Paige out. I'm thinking she might need her hocks injected! They haven't been since Jan of 2016, so she's due! Went over to see Kevin. Stayed a while there and petted Winter! Got home and turned the kids out, they were out 2.5 hours and I noticed Indy being bothered by some flies. So got them in. Watched some college football, yep, I love my football.

Any big plans for the weekend? Dog or horse related? Hope so.
Got the shingles replaced on the barn yesterday, and let me tell you, I did NOT enjoy the experience. What looks low and gentle from the ground feels high and steep from on top. Most of the ones that blew off were from the overhang, and I'm not sure I'll replace those cause it'll need a new roof in the next year or two anyway. They had put several layers on the overhang so I think it'll be okay for now.
Still haven't decided if I'll go see Buck Brannaman. I've waited several years for him to come back to this area, but I can only go for part of today out of his 3 day clinic, so not sure how much I'll learn.
Well, hope you have a good saturday, and discharge, if it happens today, will go smoothly.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well, started out a little overcast and then cleared off! Never did get any rain today, yay! So Honey and I did a two mile walk this morning. Then I worked Paige out. While she was on the wall, I went and visited Kevin again. Came home and out they went! It was warm, 79 degrees, sunny and a breeze thank goodness. They were out 2.5 hours and then Indy was getting antsy! He wanted in, drink and poop time. Amazing how mine will not go potty outside and won't drink from the buckets of water either! Then I decided to wash and wax with that stuff (TechShine) my bit tractor! It's all ready for the harsh winter!

How are the trick training classes going? Will you still do some of the agility training too? Those will keep you busy. Is Blue still fluffy from his bath?
I finally got the shed door back on yesterday. What should've only taken 2 hours tops took 2 days (got the wrong hinges, so busy with other stuff, had to peel back the aluminum skin on the door, etc), but it's finally done. Hope to get around to the shingles on the barn today. The roof on the pasture shelter is gonna be the doozy. The horses are fine. Winter coats are just long enough to give them a deeper color and feel soft, but not shaggy yet. Boo-boos still need some attention but are granulated in, just need to regrow skin.
Well, hope you have a great friday. Take care.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. YAY, Kevin came home about 6 pm last night. Was over there for a while with him today, he's upright and walking, slow but walking. Winter was very happy that daddy's home, but she came and sat with me for almost the hour I was there! He was jealous! LOL! Didn't get much done with the horses today, rain on and off all day long. Twice I tried to walk Honey earlier, we'd get about 100 feet and down it came. So I went to lunging Paige and doing showmanship with her. Indy got a spa day. Then they got hay and fresh water for lunch at 3 pm. About 4 pm my radar said I had about an hour of open time for a walk, so Honey and I did 1.75 miles. Sure enough a little while later, down came the rain again! Marion and the blondes.

Brake line broke on the car, when we came home from the funeral the other day. Just got it back tonight, because the other side needed fixing too. Not a regular garage/repair shop, because he works at a factory too. But he is a good guy, I always bring him some fresh eggs too. Yesterday, I did not even get on HC, by the time I turned the computer on it was time to go to bed.

I feel like a little kid, who wants to still play outside long after dark. Been so nice these last few days, I take back all the "nasty" things I said about Mother Nature. Been picking apples from drying for the winter for horses, washing jars for making apple jelly, (figured I would wait until a rainy day to do it), still working on cleaning under the lean-to and hauling it to the flower bed I am making. Been finding lots of baby trees in the woods, so they begged me to take them home, and replant them....I swear I can hear them calling me, maybe the wood fairies!! Went to a garage sale today, lots of horse tack, like I needed more, but did get a few nice deals. Spent my allowance for the rest of the year. Moved the guinea pigs outside a few days ago, so they can enjoy the breeze and fresh air. Lots easier to clean the cages everyday too, the plastic bottom ones, I have to wash and dry them. Once they have to stay inside again, will use woodchips for them. Sadie and the kitten, Precious, and very much interested in them. Sadie will not hurt them, but Precious is such a naughty little girl. Grizzly and Smokey don't even bother them outside.

They finally got the power line fixed yesterday afternoon. Every time the wind blew, the tree would sizzle and smoke, but thank God it never went up in flames. I'm sure the neighbors were excited, they had been almost 48 hrs without power. My daughter turned in to the grumpiest thing ever just cause ours was out an hour and a half while they did repairs, and then instant smiles and giggles when the power came back on. Oh brother! She admitted to being spoiled, lol.
I'm dying to ride, but I'm so covered up with chores, continuing ed for work, repairs from Irma, I may never see a saddle again. Ok, that's an exaggeration, but it feels like it. Grrrrr. Maybe if I drive the truck more often to make up for it, lol.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well this morning and early afternoon were a running around type of day. First had my annual mammogram test. Then hit a thrift type store for a tarp for the wood when it gets here. Over to my orthopedic doc for my right knee. It's not seriously thank goodness. Inside behind the right knee left side is just the hamstring being pissed off from favoring the knee at times. Out side on the extreme right of the knee cap, it's the arthritis just acting up, so for now take an Aleve on days when I'm gonna work it hard or ride. Ordered the Synvisc One for both knees, but will probably only do the right knee on Nov 22, has to be 6 months since last injection or Medicare won't cover it. Got home and first stopped at Kevin's and walked Winter, she's doing well. Came home and turned the horses out right away, as it was cloud over and rain moving in. Then Honey and I went for a walk, cut short by rain drops, only did one mile. Then it stopped. Horses only got an hour and a half outside, cause then the real rain came! Lasted about an hour, and then the sun came out. Too late, not playing this game anymore, stayed in the house! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Glad the hurricanes have passed. I had two of my sisters in the paths of those storms, one in Texas and one in Florida. Thank God they were spared any major damage. We are having some beautiful weather here! Cooler temps and dry for a change. Catching up on plenty chores at the pasture. Will be working with and hopefully getting a ride or two in on the horses. Enjoy your week!

Isn't it funny how horses tolerate having their hooves trimmed way better than dogs tolerate having their nails clipped? And dogs get to sit down. You'd think you were amputating their foot with a rusty knife, lol.
What was left of Irma came through Monday. My neighbor, who's a pilot, said the sustained winds were in the 40s with gusts up to 60. I can believe it, I've never personally heard the wind sound like that before. I can't even imagine what 100 mph or 185 mph winds would be like, as poor Puerto Rico, islands, and Fla experienced! Lost quite a few shingles off the barn, the roof off the horses' shelter, and the door off a storage shed. The neighbor's power pole got taken down by a tree, so they've been without power since Monday night and it still isn't on. The power lines are stretched downward through one of my trees and it's been sizzling and smoking ever since. I spent a lot of yesterday watching it in case it broke out into flames (I know not to touch or spray water on it). Fortunately, God's protected us and the tree seems to have been burned away from the wires and isn't smoking as much. So that's our excitement going on. I have a ton of work to do to repair this and that, but grateful that the animals, house, and ourselves are all okay.
Well, hope you have a great wed. Take care.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. What a wonderful beautiful day out. Was about 76 with a nice cool breeze. So Honey and I got our walk in, about 1.75 miles today. Then I had to do a couple of things and go and take care of Kevin's dog, let Winter out and check on her sutures. Got home and decided to just turn them out again, 3 hours today. Then I weed whacked and mowed Paige's pasture. She can use the one in front of the barn tomorrow, as the natural spring has dried up again, yay! Good day, tired for sure! Marion and the blondes.

As most of you know by now, my husband had a heart attack yesterday and was Careflighted to Harris Ft. Worth where he underwent a quadruple bypass. He had been having chest pains all night, but thought it was indigestion, and insisted Monday AM I drive him to the ER. Got about 4 miles down the road, looked at him, stopped and called 911 and returned home. The Drs. are pleased with his progress, although he was very groggy today (due to the morphine). So very scary. When the Dr allows, I will beat him for not waking me up and tell me what was going on. Classic HA symptoms!

Mike does not feel good, so I am in and out since before 6 this morning, to check on him. Cleaning once again under the lean to, and then work on the chicken run. That area is does not even need cleaning, but I wanted more stuff for the flower bed. The new bed is only about 12 x 10, sort of small. Trying to connect 3 smaller beds to make one giant one, so Mike doesn't mower there...well complain about mowing there.

So Blue does not his nails clipped. Sadie does not like her feet held either. Maybe they are ticklish like people's feet.
Well I am getting on HC, before the "bewitching hour" today, but not by much. Hope all your families and friends are safe from Irma terrible wind and rain. Such a Witch she was.

Not really sure the mama guinea hens "snuck" those extra eggs, but I marked all the ones I gave her with a big X. Cleaned guinea pig cages today, tomorrow, will put them in a rabbit cage, since the plastic ones just do not seem to work as well. And it will be nice outside, so Ghost and Chewy can see what the real world is like. Started cleaning out chicken run today, 4 wheelbarrows full, but most of this stuff is light, just mixture of dry straw, sand, and of course left over feathers, with no chickens attached. Just more filling for the latest flower bed.It's right next to the rabbit cage, so Velvet thinks I need to bring her a handful of grass or a apple each time I dump the wheelbarrow. She said she is a growing girl, which she is, a Giant Flemmish. Cleaned out the little room, inside the chicken coop too, mostly sand and dried lawn clippings, plan on putting up roost and feeders next.....I sister has too many doves, and is giving me 2 babies or young ones. It will also be home for any young chicks because there is a heat lamp all set up already. I must have done something inside today, oh, yes, I moved the table over a bit so Mike could work on the pellet stove....ha ha, well that was work. I did make supper, lunch and breakfast too for him. and I will get at dishes tomorrow morning before he gets up. I think!!

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Hope you stay clean for the first day of trick school Blue! Well it warmed up to about 74 degrees and no wind today, ever so nice out! Went into town and got the load of left over Sunday papers for the rescue retreat dogs. Got home and Honey and I took a 2 mile walk! Then showered and went to the chiro and then food shopping! Much needed food shopping! LOL! Got home and went right to the barn and turned the kids out! At least they got 2 hours out in the sun and pasture grass! Then Honey and I unloaded the groceries and put them away. Sat in the backyard in the shade admiring the horses grazing! They are saying that Thur, Fri and maybe even into Sat we'll be getting the left overs from Irma! Just rains. Heard from my one friend in Royal Palm Beach he's fine. Have heard from my cousin and her husband on the West Coast in Venice, they got hit harder! Prayers for all, and now in Al, GA, and TENN! Marion and the blondes.

Hi! I'm so happy to hear your family in FL are safe! That hurricane looked sooo horrible from what I've seen on TV. I was actually gone Friday-Sunday so I didn't see Koot, but I'll be going out there on Weds to see him and take him out. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

HI Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well it did get warmer today, made it to about 71 degrees, nice and sunny, but a breeze! Honey and I got our walk in late in the morning. Then when I talked to Kevin at the hospital, he asked if I could go over a couple of times and walk Winter. His daughter wouldn't be up till late in the afternoon and the mother of his child was out! So I made a couple of trips over to leash walk Winter. Mowed the lawn and had the kids out for like 2.5 hours in their pastures. But I did have sheets on them. Very windy out in the open. Watched some Football, but tonight's my team the Giants! 8:30 start time, I'll be up till 11:30 probably, gonna be a sack of tired crap in the morning, I'll be! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

After a chilly wet start to the day, it turned into a beautiful day. Decided to move the guinea hen and her babies into the calf hutch, such a simple sentence, turned into to a long project. After removing all the things, like tarp, boards, and piles and piles of weeds, we finally got the rabbit cage inside the kennel, of course all the babies are out in the long grass and weeds next to the garden and the brush pile. Finally, she calmed down and most of the babies went into the cage, but then went out just as fast, the fit threw a 1/2 space. Last babies I manage to just catch and we got her into the hutch and I had counted 15 babies while rounding them up, but I knew that was not right, because she only had 15 eggs to start with, and found 4 dead ones half out of the shell, and threw out 6 other eggs, but I counted right 15 babies, so I figured the other guinea hens were donating her eggs, when she got off the nest, they are all twins!!! But now they are safe, nothing can get into the hutch with the door closed, and daytime, I put up the screen so the have fresh air. Neighbor ask if I had enough apples, and with horses I told him, can never have too many, so picked up 5 sacks of apples, we also feed the deer so some will go that way, and the rabbits enjoy them too. Trying to get Lilly to eat one, she sure wants to, but would rather just suck on my hand....or try to eat the bread out of my pockets.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. WHOA, who let the cold in! Only 44 this morning and never got above 61 here on the farm! But the wind, and I mean wind make it feel like the mid 50's! I'm not ready for this! So went and did a few errands this morning. Then got the kids out, sheets on for sure and they're still on them in the barn! Honey and I got in a nice invigorating walk for sure! I wanted to mow the lawn, but is was just to windy for me! Hopefully tomorrow the wind won't be as bad and they say a little warmer! Haven't heard from Kevin today, but last night he told me they have him on a treatment for COPD every four hours. Plus on detox meds for his beer drinking problem! He won't be out of the hospital till at least Wed this coming week! Marion and the blondes.
