It's May already?

Yea, I am alive. Can't believe it's already another semester. Where did the first third of 2013 go?

Well, I'm alive, diving deep these days and coming up for air very infrequently.
Angel is getting BIIIIG.. everyone else is doing well. I'm just busy over my ears.

End of Spring semester marked the half point to finish the current degree. This semester (summer) is busy as one is a 6 weeks class with heavy assignments. The other is pretty intense too. But... I'll be over before I know it :)

All the horses are well, even the old girl is kicking up her heels from time to time :)

Added a new feline population to the barn. Two boys. A gray tiger w/ white feet DSH and a sandy-peach colored Siamese(?) tiger mutt. He's an interesting character.
Horses watch chick and kitty TV, chicks watch horse TV (get too excited over kitty TV) and the kitties watch whatever channel plays (including deer and others).

Attempts to add another bunch of bitties to the flock so far have been unsuccessful this year. May have to wait till it gets closer to winter. Sigh.

Wishing everyone a Safe and Happy Memorial Day and thank you to all who served to keep this country free.

trauma, I'm still here... :) Just busy over my ears.
How's the herd? Did you ever find another mount?

Added more chickies recently.
2 Hamburgs, 2 Ameracaunas, 3 Black Minorcan, 3 RI Reds.
They're 3 weeks now. Funny, two are just not growing well (1 Hamburg, 1 Minorcan), the rest have almost doubled in the past 2 weeks.

I still miss Miss Sharpy. This past Sunday marked one year. Oddly, all the dogs were semi-subdued. Hardly anyone was making a sound.


Had some really good lesson this week, despite rain. After several months of acting like an idiot, the goofball might have finally gotten over being juvenile (he DID turn 10 on Derby Day after all).
Had some really awesome workouts in the past three or so weeks. No big attitude for now. I'm definitely happy. No shows planned for a while, but I may take him places, just to get over the "omg, it's a bunch of equines and the air is electric!" I'm hoping, by fall, we'll be doing a show here or there again.

The "baby" is awaiting his last two weeks of training. His trainer got injured riding another horse and asked me to bring him home. Should be ready to go back soon...
In a way I look forward to riding him, in a way, it's a scary thought. 17.2 hh (70" at the withers) and very short backed. His free kicks see hooves at 3 feet above his butt. But his brain is good. So far, no issues under saddle. I'm okay with him being goofy in the pasture :)


Hope everyone stays safe. Looks like another system is chomping on the bit, waiting to churn up the Caribbean and the Gulf (sitting north of Venezuela). Getting ready for a busy storm season. Well, I guess, after several years, we just have been way too lucky. At least Andrea "only" dumped about 2" and some wind. Could have been a lot worse...

LOL Osdianna. It's pretty much already over, but it was partly rough going today.

HOPING the wet isn't getting too bad... but it looks like Andrea (want to type Andre-W... gasp) came with an unexpected whimper in this area. Thankful for that, but my heart goes out to those who weren't so fortunate. Many tornadoes in FL from Andrea.


Hmmm... I noticed, WU "ate" my last note again. URGH.

On a side note, Angel has been here for a total of exactly one year. Had a big fight w/ one of the other pups yesterday. GRRR. Hoping it was a fluke.

Ylee: thanks. I hope it won't be another 4-5 months lol. But then, can't promise.
Now that the tractor is running again and the riding mower works, all that's left is getting the ol' chain saw running again. They've had way too long a break.

Got the driveway graded, although it needs it a few more times before it's truly flat again - too dry to do too much on the limerock pathway. The arena has been done and dragged. Needs some rain so I can rework some other stuff there. Several large roots are no longer a hindrance for the big goofball.


Bear: I haven't shown si

Glad to see your still around. I have been mainly very quiet. Nothing new here at all just work and chores and try to get some sleep in between. Hubby still living and working up north of me and Im still working and living down here. Not much time for any fun at all. Your life sounds so exciting, love hearing about others life. Are you still showing? Be careful this year with all the bad weather.

Hi, Rotty! Glad to see you around! At least your life isn't boring! If I had a choice of doing what you do, or sitting in a large cozy chair eating ice cream and watching TV while waiting on next month's check, I'd choose yours in a heartbeat!

Keep on keepin', I'll be waiting for your next post in about four or five months! :' )
