    EMS, sorry you had to go through that. Choke is one of the scariest things to witness, and I'm glad she's okay now.

    Yikes EMS! I'm so glad she's okay! I've been fortunate that I've only seen that happen twice in my life, scared the hell out of me both times. The 2 I saw (one was my gpa's, one another person's at a show) were both horrible about bolting their feed. Big smooth rocks kept my gpa's mare from doing it again, thank goodness.

    Here is the "chicken tractor" that my dad built for DD. If we get dry weather next weekend, I am going to let her paint it red to match my barns. Chicks should be here this week, going to start them at my mom's with her new chicks and then DD gets to pick the friendliest ones and bring them home.

    Where the house part attaches to the a-frame there is a ramp that opens down into the pen. Under the ramp is a ball hitch so when they destroy the grass in one area, I can hook it up to the truck and move it to a fresh patch of grass - so they can be happy and safe, would love to do totally free range but we have too many predatory animals around us. They'd be coon or coyote snacks in no time.

    Time? What's that?

    Seriously, if you figure it out, let me know. Between juggling the house, the kids, the job, the farm chores, who has time to ride? I miss my college days, I actually had more time to ride then than I do now.

    The last couple hours I have developed a really bad sore throat and my asthma has been flaring up. I really really don't have time to be sick right now. And to add to it, it's been pouring rain all day, I'm sure doing chores in the rain didn't help.

    One of our new neighbors has two border collie mixes that they are not keeping put up, and they attacked my peacock a couple days ago. He flew up in a tree, the limb broke, and he fell on the top of the chain link fence and then to the ground. He'd be dead no if he had landed outside the fence. As it is, he has a limp and is bruised up, but I think he's going to be okay. Poor guy is locked in with the chickens right now.

    And it looks like we have a new dog. She got put out in the middle of the night in front of another neighbor's house a few nights ago and ended up coming home with me so she didn't get hit by a car. She's a pit (probably a mix, but mostly pit), and we have named her Pebbles. She is sweet as can be, is really thin, and has horrible separation anxiety. She doesn't want me out of her sight for even a second. Whines, cries, and pees if I leave her in the house when I go somewhere, barks if I put her in the backyard. But she's great with my other dogs, great with cats, chickens, horses, goats, and the kids. Rides well, but has no leash manners. Doesn't know any commands, but is a cuddlier. I suspect she was mistreated. If you raise your voice at all, like if I call one of the kids from another room, she starts shivering. Telling her "no" results in a cowering ball, and she had what looked to be a cigarette burn on one of her pads when I brought her home. So it will be a work in progress. Nothing really new though, of all the dogs I've had through the years, only one was picked out by me. The others were all strays desperately in need of a soft place to land. So here she is.

    Maybe boxer mixed? Hmmm... She's very pretty! That's awful about your peacock. Hope you get to feeling better too!

    Here's a couple more of her. I don't really see any boxer in her, she's too short-legged. Most of the time, boxer cross will be leggy, like my Boxer/Ridgeback mix. Maybe a little hound of some kind, but pretty sure she's mostly pitbull. They are really really common around here. I suspect when she gains some weight, she will look more like a purebred than she does now. You can't see it in these pics, but you can count every vertebrae and every rib.
