How We Met

He is my daughter's horse and I took care of him when she was in college. Originally we got him for her to jump and show. He came to the barn where she took lessons and he was too skinny, and needed a lot of work. A perfect project for her!

Nov 2011 - Comet moves to a new stable and loves his new home.
2/13/13: Comet's nice stable is closing, so he'll be on the road again once we find a new place!
FEB Update: Comet's found a new stable, will be moving by end of the month. :)
2/24/13: Comet arrived at his new stable Sunday evening. He settled into his stall and seems contented. A good sign.
July 31, 2014 - Comet goes to new owner and job at the stable where he was being boarded. We will miss and still love you, Comet Chaser. The most recent 2 photos are Comet at his new home.

I took Sadie's temperature twice. 98.5. I gave her 2 Pepto Bismol tablets. She ate them like candy and wanted more. Yuck. Thankful that she's doing better. Lots of love and a vote.

Have to rush again this morning. Someone coming around 11 to buy some chicks and a few keets. Hope its enough to buy feed next week. Temps were in the 40's yesterday and very breezey, but good weather for fixing fence. Mike did most of it, while I make another pen for guineas keets...time to move them out of big rabbit cage. Willow finally got to go in with whisper, as ponies and all went into the hay field, now they have 10 acres to run and run they did, of course Willow limped most of the time after, but so good to hear the "thunder of hooves" even if they were little beats.

It's great that you can help the dogs find new homes. I did help out at the center by sponsoring kittens, and too often kept a few. It's a good that I never had to do puppies.

Sadie's had diarrhea since Saturday. She's eating good and drinking her water. No change in her diet. I'm thinking maybe it's because the weather's been weird. Any ideas? Thanks. Love and a vote.

Raining again, and very cool. I have a sweatshirt on, (and all the windows open), plan on making banana bread, and oatmeal cookies, plus put something in the oven for supper. Looking out in the rain, I think of all the things I could be doing or plan to do. I will be working out in the shed, moving the turtle cage in for the keets, as soon as the rain stops. Mike is looking for stuff to do, before its time for Mass this afternoon. I like going to Church for Mass then, instead of Sunday morning.

Not the first time that Sadie's turned on the water. I'm sure it won't be the last time, either. If she thinks about it, she'll do it, again. The only way to keep her from it is to keep her put up. I let her out to get some exercise. She's too sociable to stay in the corral all the time. She amuses me. Love and a it's raining vote.

I am trying to figure out a way to make stalls in the back of the shed. Can not be permanent, because never know what else has to be back there. We have a large wire cage, 12x14 x 6 ft high, for guinea, or now little chicks. Have large rabbit cages about 4ft off the ground, but still enough room for 2 12 x 12 pens made from gates or panels, but they are 5 ft high or better, and I have to crawl up over them or unhinged them. I keep think of making them smaller with a wooden gate on hinges. Ponies do not have to be in all day in the winter, but its nice to have a place to bring them in and brush or (treat them if needed.)
Finished cutting all the burdock or cock-burs down yesterday, have two large piles to burn after they are dryer. I know of a few here and there yet to bring over to these piles, but the area they were in, is a spot my son, puts all his scrap metal before he turns it in. Prices are very low right now, and its 60 miles just to turn it in, so he has to wait until it goes back up. Stay cool, our temps are just prefect this morning 59, and should not go up too much today.

Dominic my grandson is here again. If he did not have sports at school, I am sure he would live here. Been working on some craft type things, mainly a wooden board, which he stained, and then drew some drew deer heads he wanted to paint on, but I helped him transfer his ideas on to thin wood, and I cut them out on the skill band saw. I am glad he did not make it into a "30 point buck", like the song they play in deer hunting season. Plan on cleaning out the rabbit cages and chop down more burrdock, my two piles are really big, and my hands are just as sore. Never seem to remember to wear gloves.

Let Sadie out to stretch her legs and get some exercise. She turned on the hose and made herself a lake to play in. She loved it and blew bubbles while wading in it. Brat! She's too dang smart. Oh well, I don't have to water that tree, now. Lol. Lots of love and a vote.

Morning temps have been in the 50's and sure feels good, but by afternoon its in the 80's. If I can get some of the hard jobs done in the morning is better. Yep, no one wants to go to the Ladysmith Hospital if they can help it. Now, Mikey has a appointment early Sept. for MRI on his foot/toe to make sure infection has not spread....same infection Ladysmith said was not there....but his friend sent me a message, that they took off the big black scrabs....about small dime size, and his toe nail, and his toe now looks like a real toe. She said it looked good to her. So now I pray some more.

I turned on the sprinkler for Sadie, Monday. She backed that big butt up to it, then laid down and rolled. Scruffy always gets happy when he sees her do that. He ran up to her behind, barking. He ran away from her when she let out a loud fart. Still laughing. Wish I had a video of it. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

Awe Monday, not sure what to do first. Chores are done, need to move the white guineas into the other pen, (getting ready for winter, UGH!!) but they need time to adjust to a different pen and house. After both little dogs went home, I need to wash all their blankets and pads, so they are ready when those little guys return. My cats miss them already. Tomatoes are finally getting ripe, and more cockburrs need chopping down....some of them I feel like hollowing "TIMBER" when they fall. Finish moving the turtle pen into the barn for the baby keets too. Mike has taken Mikey to another dr appointment for his toe, the big sores are infected, even if the drs at Ladysmith say it looks good, I say it needs a "real" doctor to look at it, because it is infected. That's why no one likes going the the Ladysmith Hospital, when a sore has pus, smells, and red....that is what is called infection and needs to be treated.....a patient should not have to beg to get some sort of antibiotics for it.

Some good new on Mistit...her milk is now yellow, before it was just white coloring. Still keep her separated at night, just incase. Rainy again today, but not a all day rain, but enough to make everything sticky and humidity sort of bad. Try to chop down "cock-bur or burdock" this morning, and some are getting like little trees. Like to do them just before they seed out, it is like a small ball of sticky seeds which get in the horses manes and tails, and nearly impossible to get out.

Long day yesterday, got home at 9, still light enough to do chores, and put the steer back in. Fun to see the grandkids Camille and Rich and their dog Lucy, who sang, (howled) happy birthday song. Rain here at our house most of the day. Now, everything is wet outside, and sticky inside from humidity. One day away, and I am sure the weeds, and squash took over more of the garden. With all the rain, everything is really growing tall.

So thankful for Sadie's shade. She is, too. I've got a small wall on the west side, about 6 feet wide. Going to wall up the north side when the the weather cools down. Don't know if Sadie uses the wall to block the blowing sand. She uses the shade when the sun is hot and when it rains. Plays in her water trough to cool down. The fly mask protects her eyes from flies and blowing dust and sand. She's use to the weather, no matter how crazy it gets. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

Raining here too right now, but just did chores in it anyway. No one wanted to go out, chickens included. Going to my son, Rich's birthday this afternoon. It's about 100 miles, Wausau, wi. same place where my son, Mike goes for some of his dr. appointment. DOn't mind, because they have a Farm and Fleet store. Can not think of anything I really need....but I will find something(s) without too much trouble. Have to check the little ponies list and of course Whisper and Willow will take more treats.

Monsoon season. Large dust storm hit the Phoenix area, yesterday. Horrible winds were slamming into the house around noon, shaking it. Thanking Jesus for not losing power. Tucson was flooded from the heavy rains. I had to work a short shift, last night. Hard rain hit here before I got home, and flooded the highway below my house. And yes, it's miserably humid, now, but thankful for the rain. Also, thankful for Sadie's larger corral. The east end flooded, but the west was good. Sadie's good, too. Horses are rugged animals. They can survive so much worse. All she seemed to care about was food. I let her out, waded through puddles to the hay shed, and gave her a flake of hay. She had her carrots and apples, too. Her new salt brick melted. Need to buy 2 at a time, just in case. Love and a muggy vote. <3

Put up 8 more round bales for winter....just like canning veggies, so that make 25 in total. Thats about what we use each winter, our feeders are always full. We put a few out near the edge of the woods, right down by the pine trees, for the deer to munch on. Usually 2 a year, depending how many deer we see out in the fields. New seeding hay is good for them, and God gives us a good crop, so we share.
Baby pigs are getting more independent, and now sleeping under the topper and I feed them outside the pen. Love those chubby little butt cheeks.
Mistit has been being stand-offish the last few days. Hopefully, she has her baby soon. Just likes those tummy rubs to much. I keep telling her to hurry it up.

Busy Saturday, up at 5, and someone came to buy a few keets and the extra male guinea I had. Of course, she had to see the minis, because she has a mini donkey, and was planning on getting her a friend. She liked Paisley, and Clippers, so will be calling me back.

Finally have a few days in a row with no chance of rain, so cutting the new seeding today. Poured yesterday, nearly all morning. It had stopped for a bit, and I was moving some of the keets, baby guinea hens, out to a better rabbit cage in the shed, when it started up big time, so I was halfway across the lawn, and ran with the rabbit cages trying to protect them from getting wet. Ended up working out in the shed, until rain let back up. Found a box of headstalls, starting to mold, huh....not even done cleaning saddles, and having to work on the smaller leather things. Washed most of them in vineger water, because read (somewhere) it would kill mold spores, drying is slow, because of the moister in the air. Today, it is cool outside, should stay like that all weekend. About 62 right

Going to storm today, Mike is taking Mikey to his dr. appointment, and will stop and get me "another" bag of chick starter. Probably, would not need it, but when I sell keets or chicks, I send some feed with them. Sometimes, a 3 pound coffee can full, and with the month old chicks eating like they were starving, 50 pounds goes very fast.
Humidity is so high that the floors, (wood) are wet. Everything is sticky, including my keyboard. Baby sitting 2 little yappers, (dogs) for the past week, Barky is the worst, because he likes to live up to his name. Chance is a Yorkie and wants out and two seconds later wants in....runs back and forth between the front and back door barking. I go to let him in and he is already running to the other door. Stay cool!!

I wrote before, about my flower beds, and will let everyone know, the only way to grow nice flowers, is to "beg, borrow, or steal" the seeds/bulbs. (But I only steal from Mother Nature). Always, said if I am going to steal, it better have 4 legs and a mane and tail, and be worth "hanging" for....and I have come very close to be hung. hee, hee...;)
Let month old chicks out of their pen in the shed this morning, had to plug up every hole under the overhead door, so they could not get outside. Only, because there are 42 of them, and they are so hard to count to bring back in at night. Right now, let them learn to come into the pen where I left there their food and water. Next to deal with the baby keets. Sold some, already, but have some to give to 4-H ers, and saving a few for myself....not sure why I do have enough. Sometimes, I just do not learn from my own mistakes.

My flower gardens, at least most of them bloom year after yr, I add plants here or there but then the chicks think I am making them new ground to scratch in, I like bulbs that just stay in the ground. Have a few bulb type plants that need to be taken inside, so those are planted in big tubs and moved where there is a empty spot or filling in is needed.
I have baby or young trees growing all over, but try to plant them in spots that will provide shade until they are about 3-4 feet tall, and also in the fall the dead leaves or stems provide cover from the snow and cold, like Mother Nature does in the woods.
Its good that you can ride nearly daily. Willow has been running alot more, maybe feeling better, well then she limps. Its the 2 naughty boys and Paisley that want to race with her, that gets things started.
I cleaned up my incubator fast yesterday morning, collected all the dark guinea hen eggs, about 6 dozen. Cleaned them up the best I could, hens bury them in the dirt to keep them cool, but usually they just up and leave if not ready to set. Delivery the eggs and incubator to some 4-H kids so they could "try" to raise some guineas of their own and sell the extras at the next swap or keep until spring to sell. I have 10 more of mine being sold today. Will keep some to replace a few colors I do not have, and save some for a guy I know who does not have any, even if all the eggs I gave him were good, at lockdown, something happened in the last few days. He felt so bad about it.

Lightening to the south of me, but no more storms here. Would be nice to have a nice rain with no winds. oh, and keeping power would be nice, too. When the power goes out, we lose the water, too. Thankful for my blessings. House sure feels nice, too. Lots of love and a vote.
