Snickers is a light draft, yes. He is not that "drafty", long-backed and wide-chested as full (or heavy) drafts, but he has a natural capability and good gaits for pulling, be it logs or carriages.

I actually don't feel too comfortable in kitchens, lol, and I know only how to make very simple foods. This one is very simple - boil potatoes. Well, everyone knows how to boil potatoes. While they are boiling, chop an onion and clean+chop in medium sized pieces fresh, clean chanterelles. Melt some butter in the frying pan, fry the onion until the pieces are golden, then add chanterelles with salt and black pepper by taste. Fry until ready, and voila - the best meal to have in the chanterelle season is done! :)

That's the only type of load I've ever hauled Snickers in. Maybe Lizzy will feel more comfortable if you stand there with her for a moment before leaving? Maybe leave there a piece of clothing she will recognize by smell and maybe associate it with you being near?

Me neither! My BF always ask's whats for dinner, so I hand him a frying pan... Sometimes I'll be nice and makes spaghetti or do something on the grill, maybe toss something in the crockpot... But if it involves me standing infront of the stove cooking for hours, I'm not the girl for it... Same goes for housework... The floors are swept and clean, the laundry stays caught up and the dishes washed, but that's about it... I spend most of my time outside and in the barn. Housework can wait til it's dark and I can't do barn work.

Haha I'm learning to cook because of survival. So much cheaper to cook up a bunch of meals for work and when I'm lazy. So different meals help so I don't always eat spaghetti lol.

I'm probably just being paranoid and she will be fine. Her bf doesn't fit in the trailer so he can't come haha he's to tall. We've been working on her standing still for long periods of time and she seems content with that.

Ha ha me being a housewife, i'm obsessed with cleanliness and I can't help it LOL I think I have ocd or something. I don't mind housework, but I prefer my horse work. I don't mind cooking, half the time i'm eating whatever gets done first, and whatever is left hubby gets LOL unless he cooks. And he's a good one too, I just don't get on why he says he enjoys it so much, but he hardly does it!!! If the rain keeps up we might have stuff to stock up on for the winter!!!

I'm quite a messy person, actually - well, my apartment is rather neat, but I'm not too eager to do the chores and I rather do them tomorrow than today. Besides, with three cats, it is near to impossible to keep everything perfectly clean. And, as I don't have a partner, I'm not obliged in any way to learn cooking, so here I am - bite me.

My bf is convinced that im just going to become domestic....haha what a joke. I clean minimally, and I cook from a box. Im reaaaally good at mac and cheese....

I always tell my bf that if he's expecting to live off of my cooking he's going to starve to death.

Ladies I've recently turning into one of "those" women.. as in the type that cooks, cleans, and has no time for other stuff... and I'm not even married!

(By the way that was a joke.. so don't take offense please.. I don't have kids nor a hubby and I'm 19 lol.)

Anyway resuming the convo, I am a fabulous cook. Too fabulous infact... that if any guys know of my talent I will be expected to be stuck at home while they have all the fun working. Unless home involves a barn full of horses, count me OUUUUT.

So shhh no one tell okay?

I love cooking! I like experimenting with new things. I love baking too but I've had to stop, its so easy to put on weight when you're baking cakes and slices and muffins at other things every other day. I cook far too much, I'm on a diet now lol.

But I guess I am a sort of different cook, because I am vegan I don't use meat or dairy or anything so I have to change recipes a bit. I don't know how good my food is but its certainly always interesting, and people who are open minded generally like it.

I hate housework, except vacuuming. My idea of a perfect house is a house with as little as possible in it. My flatmates are the opposite and have all little things everywhere! Decorative tins, wooden bird sculpture things, about a bazillion bible quotes that they stick on the walls - it all drives me insane, so I hide in my room.

And... it's finally sunny!

That's really cool! :) I love meat too much to be vegan.. but I love using grains and making veggie dishes too.

Yay for it being sunny!

Soooo since we're still on food, anyone here gluten free? My brother has just been diagnosed with celiacs so I most likely have it too. They think it's what's causing my thyroid to be so messed up. I've been told a gluten free diet is recommended. But I love regular cheap spaghetti. All fresh food and meats for me. All the expensive stuff I must cook. Ugh.
