Round Three

With the many other things that have been happening around the farm over the last couple of weeks, we also managed to squeeze in a third round of clipping. It is impressive how much hair some of our PPID/Cushing’s residents can grow over the course of a year. We had several clips in round three and I’m hoping we might be done for the year. I’ve got my eye on a couple that we didn’t clip in round three but might need to get clipped in the next week. Generally I don’t like to clip anyone after early September...

Circle of Life

The last couple of weeks have made me wonder why I thought having a retirement farm was a good idea. We all have stretches at work or in life generally where it seems that despite doing everything right, you keep getting the wrong results. In the last ten days we have lost not one but two residents unexpectedly and the circle of life has felt a bit to real to me. In some ways it seems silly to say unexpectedly given that one of the residents we lost was 32 years old and had been with us for more...

Bad Fences Make Good Neighbors

Every day is a new day when living on a farm. My plans today were to feed horses in the morning, work with the farrier for a few hours this morning, then ride my horse, do afternoon chores, and be done with outside work and and start on inside work. Instead we had thunderstorms move through our area last night, and heavy winds came at the beginning of the front. The heavy winds were short lived, less than 5 minutes, but the wind speed was definitely high for a couple of minutes.  The net result was one big downed...

The Year of the Skunk

Every year on the farm it seems to be the year of something. We had the year of the deer a few years ago. The farm was literally overrun with deer. One evening as we were driving along our driveway towards our house, Jason had to stop the car because a herd of deer were blocking the driveway. He honked the horn at them and they took their time moving out of our way. We’ve also had the year of the turkey. The farm was covered in wild turkeys. I learned that mommy turkeys with babies in tow will...
