  1. What is your horse's home like?

    It is funny how the road can take us one direction but our heart knows where home is. You will make it back to home.

    So here is another for you. You know how husbands might say it is ok for the wife to go look at horses then she shows up at home the next day with that new horse in the trailer? Well during our ride home last night I had mentioned that it would be nice to have a convertible again. Been a good 12yrs since the last one was eaten by a big buck. Then the fact we can't actually go anywhere in the summer because we are ball & chained to work but do enjoy going for drives to get away. Told hubby it would be fun to have a VW Bettle topless just because it does have a back seat & most convertibles don't. Guess what......Hubby found a bug on Craig's List & is on his way to Fargo to get it. Then on the way home he'll surprise Shortman when he picks him up at grandma's. Hubby loves driving a convertible & this was his chance to jump right on that request. We would LOVE a solstice but it is only a two seater. Gonna have to wait for Shortman to grow up into Tallman & move out before can get one. I'll let you all know if a Chris- Craft boat shows up in my yard sometime soon. Do believe that my husband just may be going into a midlife crisis. Then again with my way of thinking it would make for a great cabin right on the water without the property taxes or grass to mow.

    LC, so the sheep get brushed & not sheared? Last night was the concert. It was really nice but the best part was seeing Bonnie Raitt perform. James Taylor was really good but just a bigger fan of Bonnie. Shortman really liked her music also & he had never heard her. So needless to say getting home at 2 am makes for a slow start morning. Shortman is getting a new experience this morning. A good friend has a trucking company & part of what they haul is milk. We asked last year if Shortman could ever ride along. Turned out our friend had to fill in on a route this morning so at 7:30am he was already with rubber boots to go on a milk run. This is a perfect route as they will be back by 12:30. From visiting pig barn in Canada to hauling milk ,playing trains & concerts nobody can ever say we don't expose our child to what the world has to offer.

    QH, what about the name of a favorite character in a book or movie. One of these days a critter will be called McFly in our home. We are always saying "Hey McFly, what you doing?" LC sure hope the weather will be good for your move. Is your son getting a bit more excited? Please post pics once you are in, especially where you put that beautiful tile.

    You can keep your native big bugs. Give me a wolf spider & fat tick any day.

    It all depends on if you want to play landlord.

    If Bubbles fits her personality then it should stay. As for your other dog not having a designated name thats ok. They will still answer to the person that calls them whatever name. Our Willy had about six different names he would answer to. In fact had a customer ask once what his name was, I told her Willy & she stated she had not heard one person call him by his proper name. By the way I have always enjoyed seeing pictures of your dog. Oh & yes you do need a mini.

    LC, thats to bad about the weather not cooperating with the move. That is why we bought the place we had rented for 14yrs. No furniture to move, no change of address, passing of the keys, no trying to find the perfect home. However, it was kind of lack luster with there being no excitement of moving someplace new. As for the cats. If your cats are really friendly then I would wait till you moved out or when go to work on the property let them out. Then before you leave put them back. However, they should be fine left out? I am no cat expert. Only have the ability to talk to my two barn cats & they love to chat. Ask Heidi she really knows how to speak feline.

  14. Picked Up Puppy

    Finally got the call to come pick up that blue eyed puppy. Totally forgot how beautiful she is.

    This is why minis are so dang addictive. Lots of fun to be around & work with.
  16. Naming a new horse :)

    Give it a week or so & she'll end up naming herself. Its about personality. I really like her coloring.

    The girls won color coordinated ribbons to go with their outfits. Whats great is they can tell friends & family they won ribbons at a horse show. Sure would be nice if they can show again this year.
  18. Picked Up Puppy

    LC, next time you need to go puppy shopping like me. This kind of puppy won't bite but your hubby might nip when you bring it home.
  19. The Front Porch

    Oh what a fun day QB. Girls must be ecstatic at being able to show the minis.

  21. Picked Up Puppy

    Jubal for year I have been wanted ng a flush diamond ring. When seen this one I knew I had to have it. Been a very long time since I've bought jewelry for myself. Hubby & Short man keep me in mind on special occasions.
  22. Picked Up Puppy

    The hardest will be keeping her clean.
