    Thank You Guys. Y'all are amazing! today i am getting jacked on coffee. i have a ton of housework to do before this afternoon. Tilley is finally going to my youngers moms house (my step kids that i claim). we are also picking up Spirit. he is an all black mini! cant wait to start working with him. decided that i am going to work with NB to drive. he needs a job but the saddle with a rider puts stress on his withers. since driving is all about the front and pushing and he is super strong in the legs and back, he is going to train to drive. we wont use him often for it, still have to get a cart too.... anyways, off to channel my zummies into something productive.

    But I will pray for you to be strengthened.

    Canning more dog food today. It sure is a good way to clean out the freezers. Plus I always keep the offal when we take animals to slaughter. We raised that animal, fed it, cared for it, it just goes against my grain to throw out parts that can be used. maybe I don't like pork liver, heart or one year old packages of chicken gizzards and livers, but the dogs sure do!

    Got 7 quarts on the counter, 5 more in the pressure canner. DH splits a quart between the 3 dogs and mixes it with their kibble. They love the stuff. Sitting here for 90 minutes watching the gauge drives me nuts. I want to be OUTSIDE! But this needed doing too. 52 minutes to go...….

    Well today been busy and yet not very productive . First the dog killed one of my rabbits which makes me cranky, the kids(humans) have been fighting over every little thing. Then about noon we get a call from Grandpa saying one of the cows is having problems calfing. The poor thing has the head and one leg of a very large calf stickin out when we get back there. The calf is very much dead and has been for some time. It's also huge looks like a month old. After pulling for awhile I finally talk my husband into tryin it my way(pregnant and the only one that some what of a clue how to turn the leg out but can't) my husband says all he can feel isthe other shoulder blade and his arm is to big to go I further so add to my frustrating inability to go in (my forarms are much smaller then m diesel mechanic husband's) we could not remove the calf and the vet can not make it till after six. Hopefully she be ok and they be able to help her. Otherwise we put her down. Makes the six or seventh calf lost this year four were shot by some punk teens and the others died at birth unsure as to why.
