    Coffee anyone ?

    @promiseacres -- I'm with you. Never been a breakfast eater. Now, I find I need to eat, so do but -- hate to fix it. I tend to heat leftovers from night before Or...when I cook, do extra to reheat. Sausage/bacon easy with an English muffin toasted. Prefer leftovers to heat. My mom used...

    How To Make Hay Stretch

    One of the issues for all farmers --- WEATHER! May get one cutting, or three. May get late cut, not great hay. Flood, drought, equipment issues, etc. So you do not know what you will get UNTIL you get it. Then, soon as hay buyers hear of the problems of harvest, they buy what is out...

    1st time slaughtering a sheep ram

    Yeah, I'm old too -- so it's good to teach the youngsters. :old As to sharp, I keep a supply of razor blades for any cuts. I've had to lance or trim up cuts, etc. Have cut myself a few times and don't feel it until the blood runs. Important to be calm & quick. For the cut you use. A...

    Meet Pearl, New Horse

    Both are beautiful animals. Love the name on the white. Bay you might try adding beet pulp to Pearl's grains. It's known to help keep weight on them. Most Sr feeds have it in there. My old guy stays slick with his sr feed. Worth a try.

    Coffee anyone ?

    SNOW -- there's that bad (for me) word. 😁 The word and the white stuff is appearing in places some of our members inhabit. Ok, I don't even visit there.....try to stay far enough South to not have much of it. Just not a fan. Sure beautiful to see but, other in than my back yard for...

    rachels.haven's Journal

    So why are you in your current location? Raised in area, job location, etc? Yeah, moving is a major life change for many -- especially if far, not just other side of town. But you may have a talk with DH and see if job elsewhere is an option for him and plan from there. Might be a good...

    Coffee anyone ?

    Another day of sunshine and mild temps. Light fog. Was heavy last two days but clears quick with daybreak. Real wet grass early! I've had open widows for a few weeks -- that time of year -- so, last night, rather suddenly, I got this ugly odor coming in. At first I thought smoldering swamp...
