Fencing, Fire Ants and Boxer Shorts

Jason and I are once again working on one of our least favorite projects, rebuilding the mile of fence that Maury Fence Company built for us.

Maury Fence Company built the first mile, and thankfully ONLY the first mile. Only four years after they built the fence a majority of the posts started to fail. The boards were fine, the posts were rotting, some...

Amish Visitor

When I came rushing out of the house Monday afternoon to pick Carter up from school I stopped dead in my tracks when I realized an Amish buggy was parked behind my truck.  The driver was walking toward me and a very polite Amish man introduced himself and asked if any of our horses were for sale. I attempted to explain to him that all of the horses were retired and were not for sale. I apologized profusely as I explained to him that I was running a few minutes late to pick up my son and that unfortunately...

In Memory of Calimba

Calimba was a beautifully bred Holsteiner mare who was born in central Germany in 1996. Her hometown, Sulingen, is famous for their knives.

Caddyshack

A few weeks ago Jason told me that he saw a huge groundhog getting into the feed at our back barn. We knew something had been getting in the feed, and since it seemed to so nimbly remove the snap on lids to the feed cans we assumed it was a raccoon. Jason was convinced the groundhog was getting into our feed as he kept telling me how big it was. Frankly, I didn’t believe him. I believed that he saw the groundhog, I just didn’t believe it could be THAT big. About a week later a representative from...
