    I also love to watch the Herd Behavior-- We have 2 as of now, but I plan on getting at least one more. We have our Dominant Gelding, and our Super Submissive-- Bottom of the totem poll mare.. its quite interesting to watch the two.

    Did you see, there was a tornado that tore down someones big red barn, and trailer house? It was on the news earlier-- no one was hurt, but scary situation. I thought it was only a "watch" as well.
    We are country neighbors - I'm on the SE end of Bedford County, a few miles from the Coffee County line

    Once upon a time, there was a HUGE TWH farm right on the Marshall/Bedford County line. I'm not from around here, originally, so I can't remember the name to save myself but they were a big name farm - lol. It got sold and parcelled off.

    It wasn't near as dicey here as it has been in the past. We've been here 9+ years and, to-date, have put two square of shingles on the SW corner of the house -- 2 to 3 pieces at a time - lol lol

    This house is a modular. I purposely designed it with a 12-pitch roof. The last time Mr. WTW got up there (he's scared to death of that much height), he announced it was the last and we would be investing in a metal roof this year - lollol

    Two years ago, when the tornadoes went thru northern Alabama, I could follow the path of the twister, that again, went right over us without touching down) with all the things I picked up in the pastures.

    We are over an hour away from the area that was hit; it tore me to pieces to be picking up photoes of somebody's life. I tried to track down who they might belong to and never could. I still have them in a zip lock bag, just in case.

    lol, awesome! Ill have to ask one of the walkin horse people about that TWH barn-- im just now getting into the breed. a shame they sold it, but I can see why with the economy the way it is now days, there just aint no money in horses anymore.

    Asdfghjkl! Don't jinx it!! Tornado season has only just begun! I hate this time of year, lol. In the flood of 09' we had to literally swim to rescue our old mare, and we had all kinds of mules runnin around in the front yard, like our guard dogs, lol.

    Haha, Dang-- our roof had a few shingles knocked off this year, lol.. we haven't assessed the damage yet..


    Crazy aint it?
    Aww. :( maybe you can find them on fb, if there is names on the backs? Stuff like that intrigues me!! Was it old b&w photographs?
