The Hay Greeting Committee

Usually we have our hay delivered, but when I realized how close they are to our house I thought I could convince Boot City to accompany me with his giant flatbed to pick it up a load ourselves and save the delivery fee which has gone up this year. The hay picking up was pretty […]

The wind huffed and puffed and tried to blow our house down last night! Thankfully it appears that the only damage incurred was a few branches strewn about and a tarp that tried to blow away. The power was out for a few hours, but came on just as I left for work. Yay for […]

Sterling and his hurtie

The vet came by yesterday  to stab vaccinate my herd of horses plus I wanted him to do an evaluation of Sterling since he has been off on his right front for about 2 weeks. Rewind a little bit here. Sterling had a small quarter crack on both of his front hooves at the beginning […]

It appears that summer is coming to Texas sooner rather than later. It was supposed to actually RAIN here this week, but the alas we only got 0.05″. Sad face. This is our foster mama kitty and her litter. She has quite an adorable group of kittens if I do say so myself! She is […]

What Color is My Horse?

I have quite a few young horses so it has been on my mind lately to get some good conformation photos of them. I’d like to have a pictorial reference for how the horses change as they get older. Especially since I have horses of significantly different bloodlines and breeds. In that vein, I got […]

Happy Cinco de Mayo! We had a May the Fourth be with you surprise at our house yesterday. Meet baby Esther! She’s named after Esther Summerson from Bleak House since that is the book I’m currently reading.   This thistle is growing under an old tractor we have on the property. I don’t know if […]

Puddy Tats

Against my better judgement, I have been “talked into” another round of foster kitties. One of my kitty-loving friends who also fosters for the local shelter and humane society sent me an email with pics of a pretty darned adorable litter and asked if I could foster them. Side note: I keep my foster kitty […]

Field trip

In the nine years I’ve owned Sterling he has slowly but surely gotten much better about being ridden away from home, but he still gets quite distracted at new places. One of the best things about living in North Texas is the availability of really lovely facilities that allow outside riders, one of which is […]

The theme of today’s Farm Friday post appears to be chickens!!! Chickens are the funniest and easiest farm animals one can own. The City of Austin will now PAY people to keep chickens! I can’t think of any reason why someone in Austin wouldn’t keep chickens now. Once you get their habitat established and it is […]
