How We Met

The story is somewhat extensive, but long story short:
Heard about this mini horse that someone didn't want because he was getting to be just a pain to feed or anything. His name was WarHawk. The husband wanted to kill him if he couldn't get rid of him. His wife, of course didn't want this to happen. She was very thankful that we could bring him home to live with us. It was a surprise that we were going to look at a horse. No one told me till we arrived, what we were doing or that we were even looking at a horse. At the time, we only had 1 acre of property that our house sat on. Instantly, once I saw Eli, I knew I wanted this little horse that had "problems".
Unfortunately the stress from the move caused him to start cribbing. he already had the problem of nipping, because he was spoiled rotten by the wife. another unfortunate thing was that I got Eli when I was 9. At that time, I was practically a know it all, read every horse book, etc. but never knew what to do with Eli. I named him myself... "Eli" short for "Elijah", but I was afraid of this little horse. Him and his nipping, even though I was the only one he seemed to like. He never tried to bite me, but my family had me scared to death of Eli and his nipping problem. Eli was a pasture ornament for 5 years. It is now nearing the 7th year Eli has been with us and now that I'm older, I'm not scared of Eli (probably because I am bigger than him) and I've come to understand him, and I think he trusts me. This year I have big plans for him. the past year or so I've been slowly working with Eli and now we're doing some property enhancements to further Eli's training. I'm really excited to work with him more. I've felt terrible letting him sit in the pasture. Now I'm determined to make that boy my "little buddy" no matter what it takes!

THIRD: When we first got Eli and the barn wasn't quite finished. FOURTH photo: Eli napping in the sun FIFTH: cart ride (that was a long time ago!) SIXTH: Eli in his stall SEVENTH: dinner time!

**May 7th is my birthday** (if the birthday on his papers isn't fake, as well as his papers)

In Eli's album is a picture of his "injury". Cinnamon kicked him and scraped his face up.

ood Morning vote from Whisper and the little herd. Bad start to the whole week...toilet is not working....:) Yep, I made just a few dollars over 100 on my chicks. I like to dicker on selling them. Told one lady I would trade her all my baby chicks, for her little baby and even throw in a bar of homemade soap. Her little girls were shaking their heads "No" and the little boys were all smiles saying "Yes". I came home with 3 little "toy" mice for my kittens to place with.

I nearly came home with a kitten or two. Told the guy if he could not find homes for them, I would take them. Some chicks I liked, but they were banty size, and it takes the same amount of feed to feed the banty hens, as a big one. But I had a good time, that's what is important. Took one of my helmets, to give to one of the 4-Her, since this was a 4-H fund raiser.

Finally we have heat and hot water. Mike forgot to turn up the thermostat to tell the stove to heat the house. :).
Since it rain again last night, we will do some running this morning. Have to finish putting in some potatoes in the garden and check to see if anything "besides" weeds are growing.

A "late" Happy Mother's Day to you, even if you are only the mother of 4 legged ones.
Busy weekend....hatched out 42 out of 48 eggs, for me that is great. Sold 8 guinea hens on Saturday and 15 chicks, but out poor outdoor stove is taking all that money to fit it. Now the best new, Pickles finally progress to a point that he can have his halter OFF. Does not run away, and no long afraid of hand movements....sometimes, he moves his head, but not his feet. Been following me around, like I am his best friend. Negative side of no halter, is....I can not tell Pickles and Clippers apart(from just their heads), without looking at their feet. :)

Hubby was gone yesterday, drove with a friend to the VA in Minneapolis, so I never had even 1 dirty dish to wash until he got home. Got so much work done. Emptied, (again 3rd time) rain water out of the sunk in bath tub, that is used for the summer fish pond, used water to give to all the newly planted trees, so some of the water carrying was a bit of a hike. After filling the horse tanks, pulled the hose over to the fish pond and filled it, of course first had to clean it, because of all the leaves and sticks that fall in. Went and caught all 7 little gold fish, by hand, and put them in. I try to make it as natural as possible. With rocks and later plants....the rocks are so "if" some little animal falls in, at least it can climb out on the rocks. Put turtles back in the pen, and added more rocks so it is easier for them to crawl out, that plastic does not give them any traction. Dragged the hose over and made muddle puddles for the pigs, then watered all the tomatoes plants, all 22 of them. Still have more to put out, but they are still to small. I carry them outside to set in the sun, and then back in for the night. Baby chicks got to go out in the sunshine in the outdoor pen, but sure were hard to round up to go back inside at 6, All the tomatoe plants, have to be uncovered in the morning, then recovered when it started getting hot, yep, it really got hot yesterday, up to 83 at one time. We go from 30 to 89+ in one day. Winter jacket to T-shirt. Cleaned out white guinea pen, brushed ponies, worked on picking up Pickles feet....he was very naughty when farrier was here...picked up his feet and his whole bod went with. But Clippers did the same thing, and his feet were picked up hundreds of time. Moved saddles to the shop so I could clean them later, took the huge plastic that covered them, out into the ponies pen, and used feed tanks and rocks,to hold down corners and then put its of feed on the plastic so the ponies could learn to walk on the plastic. Sure enough, girls are braver than boys. Paisley, and Mistic just walked right out, Pickles and Clippers had to check it out somewhat, before they went for treats. I brought the two huge balls out for them to play with, they like to follow them as they roll. Pickles and Paisley had them in their pen all winter. Later when it was dark, I went to lock chickens in, and all 3 of the younger ponies were laying down, so I sat between them, and rubbed them. Pickles just laid out flat and I got to rub his tummy, first time he did that. Usually he wants to get up, but tonight he felt comfortable just laying there. Did I clean house, well I did wash one load of clothes and hung them outside. That counts, somewhat, for housework, right!!

Whisper wants to know if you want to celebrate this weekend with her. I am making carrot and apple bars, if you can not make it, will have to send your share by "Pony Express".
Whisper and the little herd got their hooves all tidied up yesterday, they look so neat, and of course Mom's pockets are a lot more emptied. Now, the shots, and everyone will be ready to go dancing.

How is your week going?? Been planning on brushing everyone up to help with winter fuzzy wuzzy being gone, but just never have much time. Farrier is coming on Thursday the 5th, so want to have it done. Have to put a new door with hinges on one small chicken coop, clean out the fish bath tub pond, had it emptied or nearly, when it rained for a few days, and now it is full again. I care the water to newly planted little trees, which I stole from our woods, work on a fencing for the 2mt old chicks, finish clicking the rabbits tangled fur, she is long haired, and I never finishing doing her. Hatching out another batch of baby chicks, the other 15 are leaving on Saturday along with 8-10 guinea hens, then the rest can start free roaming. The hens have been laying and collected 36 of them and have set them 2 days ago, then will add 12 pheasant eggs in 2 more days, and 3 days after that fill in with some chicken eggs, depending on space. Still air incubator and I need to turn the eggs at least 4-5 times a day. It will e nice to have enough money to of course buy more feed, and not have to take from a different fund, might even have enough to pay into the fund for farrier work and shots.

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.

Was busy digging a hole to put in the plastic pond for the turtles, have to be near a plug in, so that means next to the house. Hubby, finished digging it this morning. Have a long cage big enough to walk in, to put over the top and still have aout 5-6 feet so they can crawl out of the water. I sure hope my flowers and plants grow like I picture them in my mind. We had snow/sleet/rain from last evening to this morning. So spring must be hiding again.

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.

Quick voting this morning before I do chores Can hear the birds singing outside, and little chicks starting to peep in the incubator. Going to start putting in the pond for the turtles today, needs electric for the filters so thinking next to the house or even in the day lillys over by the garage, even have the large cage to put over the top of everything, to keep them safe. Want to dig now while the ground is soft, since it has rained the last two days. Ponies seem to like to stay inside again, before they kept walking to the door like they wanted out, but that means more pen cleaning. Been trying to keep it clean, so all I had to do was put down lime, to kill anything in the soil, (it has dirt floor), then the sawdust, and straw, before Mistic has to use it for her baby. She other wise will be outside all day, and come in at night. So much for a quick vote, huh. :)

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.

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.

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.

Wow...it's been a while since I've been on HC! Lot of catching up to do. Sorry so busy...to much craziness going on! Terrible weather here today. Thunderstorms all day.

Glad you are back on HC. I remembered last summer, when lightening hit near and took out the computer, so I was off for a long time. I missed being on.
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.

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.
