glazed salmon... hmmm I might steal your idea and have it at my wedding too
Speaking of which, I feel I really need to get a move on everything!

So I went by the ponies today. Gave Gem his bute and then walked him around for like 20 min. Or so. He was just loving being able to walk around and everything. He was really soaking up the sun too. And I let him have a few nibbles of grass.
I didn't do anything with Vega, but i'll leave that for tomorrow.
Her back legs are all puffy again :( I'm thinking its because I let her just run around yesterday, but then she went into her stall and then today she was out in her muddy paddock and i'm thinking the lack of movement did it to her. Grrr. It just annoys me. They balloon up to maybe twice the normal size. But she's not limping or anything.

Absolutely poured all day. Went out to feed the dogs and horses and every feed pan was overflowing My momma cat had her kittens out in the barn in the middle of the thunder and lightening.
Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone

So far they are fine, She had them right where I walk through to feed the chickens I built them a little fort with hay bales and a hub cap roof I have got to catch my tom cat and get him fixed. I usually don't worry about the cat population in the barn but its getting out of hand. With the 5 she just had that make around 10 cats out there There are only 3 I can catch or pet. I'm hoping once the weather warms they will thin out.

my cousin Karen used to live out in Ca and she would feed all the ferral cats. She was able to trap them, get them spayed/neutered and then release them. Of course she's kept quite a few, and then she rented a huge camper and moved all of them to Florida and has built them a whole cat outdoor area.

I have one of those have a heart live traps. I think I will try to catch my tom this week. He is the only male in the bunch and likes to keep his little harem. I occasionally have people wanting barn cats so do give some away. Come flea and tick season I'm hoping some will have moved on since there are just a few I can treat. My husband is getting upset about it so will have to do something. So far they are staying away from the chickens because he goes out and shoots them if they get in the chicken coop.

awww :(

I'm sure i'd do something along the lines of what your hubby does. I'd probably use water or something else though.
That's so nice that you give those kitties away to be other barn cats. :)
Hopefully these babies will grow up and learn to love people and stuff

I hate to say it but those ferrel cats make the best barn cats. They are used to fending for themselves so are great mousers. My dad used to do cats that way with water (he was a dairy farmer)when the population got out of hand, I just couldn't do it.

yeahh I would think they would make good barn cats.

I just couldn't bring myself to shoot at a kitty cat.

Ugghhh, today is such a long day. I'm still at the office. But atleast I got to see Gem and Vega today :)
