Horse Show Debut

Timbit and Carter made their horse show debut together this past weekend. It was most likely their first and last show together since Carter has outgrown Timbit. They did a walk only dressage test and scored a respectable 72%. I will give Timbit credit and say that he acted like a seasoned pro from start to finish. He self loaded on the trailer, didn’t peek at anything all day, confidently ate hay in his palatial horse show stall, paraded around the arena like a star, and generally acted as if he owned the show, the facility, and life itself....

Back to the Grind

Last week we added teeth floating back into the schedule. We split the farm in half and float teeth on half the farm in the spring and early summer, take a break for a couple of months, and then do the other half of the farm in late summer and fall. Basically we try to avoid the hottest and coldest times of the year. Last week we had perfect weather for our dental visit, mid 60s and sunny. Yesterday we had awful weather, low 50s and very light but nonstop rain. Whenever I start to complain about the weather...

Oscar Oscar looking annoyed in the flowerbed since we dared to sit on our own porch Trigger, Homer, Thomas and Elfin seemed resigned to their fate as they waited for the farrier with their halters on Homer and Revy playing; it has been awhile since we had frost on the ground Miel Romeo, Lotus and Asterik Taco and Happy Asterik and Flyer Gibson Bruno Silver I took a few swipes with the shedding blade while Lighty was eating. Some horses haven’t even started shedding while others, like Lighty, are in full shedding mode. Wilson, Toledo and Johnny were all giving...

Spring Work

Whenever we’ve had a couple of dry, sunny days in a row the last couple of weeks – which has been a rare event – Jason has been doing spring pasture maintenance. His first task was reseeding cool season grasses wherever he thought it was necessary in the pastures. Reseeding happened sporadically over the last couple of weeks. Most of the time it has been much too wet to be driving equipment out in the pastures, but he finally managed to get what should have been a couple of days of work done over a two week period. Sunday,...

No Floodplain Means No Flooding

I mentioned in one of my last blogs that we’d had a lot of rain in February. I don’t remember the final February tally but it was a crazy number, something like 12 or 13 inches of rain. March has started off in the footsteps of February and we had at least an inch, probably more like two inches, of rain last night and today. Schools were closed today in our county since several roads were closed due to flooding. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday were warm, sunny days. Their purpose was to fake us out and trick us into...
