HAIR and Thursday

HAIR - Rusty has plenty. Isn't that some mane. Bob must get to working with her. She won't let me. I love her hair. Love it.

Tomorrow's word is FEET. I can guarantee that it won't be her feet.

Want to win this pretty candle holder complete with a pretty little red candle inside. I found it at a store clearance and thought, I love cardinals and love dogwoods and it reminded me of spring and an idea popped in my head. Give it away on the blog. Haven't done that for a long time. All you have to do is leave a comment and I will put your name in something and draw a name out. And abbra ca dabbra you won and I will get it to you. It is pretty enough I considered keeping it but........I am trying to rid myself of stuff. So my loss will be your gain.

The stalls are all clean but very scarcely bedded. We must find bedding tomorrow. I sure want shavings but they seem to be very hard to find if you can find them at all. Straw should not be so difficult. The Exchange came out today and Bob will start calling tomorrow. A friend in Reardan was supposed to call but Bob hasn't heard so my guess is he didn't find any either. I am feeling so bad for all our animals. Oliver is on a little island and seems happy but the rest are in muck.

Hope this dries up soon, we have calves due in about a month. I wanted later spring babies but that didn't happen so in the mud they will be. At least not in a snow storm like Henry was born last year.

Have a good Friday, its a long weekend. I will like that.


  1. I live vicariously through your blog. I love hearing about your animals and your way of life. Please enter me in your blog giveaway.

  2. I wish I had hair like Rusty. :) Mine is very thin and getting thinner as I get older. What's up with that? blessings, marlene

  3. Hey Lea,

    I think you have plenty to keep up with w/o having a calendar with a project a day :)

    Rusty sure does have a long mane!

    Have fun with those feet. I've done that a couple of times myself :)

  4. Too bad you live where you do and not where I do because we put straw in two years ago; still using it. We only have four horses that are only stalled at night during our lovely(!) winters so it lasts forever. Love Rusty's mane. I am a sucker for long flowy manes and tails, though they are a pill to maintain.
