Going back to work …

I got a call from the hospital where the contract management position was advertised.  I wrote about this job a while back.  It took three different times to connect with the woman I’d be interviewing with, but the interview is now scheduled for Thursday at 9:00 AM.  I wish I had made it a bit […]

Robbie Potter Clinic II

I went to my second Robbie Potter clinic this weekend.  It was fabulous!  We (Merlin, Wally and I) all learned a lot.  Robbie loves to deal with a problem horse and Merlin’s various issues presented themselves at very opportune times, beginning, again, when Robbie first pulled in to the parking area.  Merlin who was tied […]

Wally’s a Poet!

Wally brought me home a poem he wrote yesterday: “We live on a farm. We cause nobody no harm. We milk dairy goats even when we have to wear winter coats. We drink goat milk. It goes down smooth as silk. We eat chicken and duck eggs. Even though the mud and muck pulls at […]

Pictures

I went out with my little point and shoot camera and took a few shots.  It’s quite overcast here and while I like this little camera, it doesn’t always do what I want it too.  Oh well. The Beached Whale (a/k/a Kersey): Spot, this year’s Jersey calf. One of my Buff Bantam hens.  I love […]

Bla, bla, bla

I feel like I’m in a rut these days.  I do not have a lot of energy to do much of anything.  I did ride Merlin on Tuesday and we had a very nice ride, despite my trying to cut his front legs off by sending him through barbed wire (which of course I didn’t […]

Splitting the goats

I decided this afternoon to take Split out to work the goats.  Gel learned so much on the goat kids I started him on. Be careful what you name a dog.  Frequently, “Split” splits up the stock, leaving part of the group behind.  This is because she’s working on adrenaline and not thinking about what […]

Babies, babies everywhere …

On Sunday when we went out to set the fence, we found a wonderful surprise.  One of the ewes we kept back from last year delivered a beautiful spotted baby.  He looks like a Dalmatian.  Too bad it’s a ram.  Yesterday, the goat that we brought home on Saturday delivered two doe kids.  The milk […]

The Black Gelding

He’s here.  We got him loaded into the trailer without too much trouble.  He was scared, but not stupid.  When he got here, again, he was scared, but not stupid.  He and Merlin were introduced and they seemed to get along fine.  It was when we put him into the paddock that he scared us.  […]
