Nice looking tree Koolio!
I forced myself,out shopping today...and after the first gift was bought I was having fun, and did a smoking job on the gift buying.
An issue I do have....is we have an angel tree at our school for those in need. It nice bc you know you are helping someone in our district. BUT when parents put an xbox 360 down on the list.....that's a bit much don't you think? Just for giggles I looked up,the price....they are $150!! I don't think so! I got my person some clothes, a fishing pole and a CD. Stuff on the list... We are just to 'help out'...but I feel as the years have gone by, parents are expect A LOT from us and ask for really expensive items!
My niece is graduating college next weekend. My brother asked me to go and ride along. Assuming we were going the night before, as the university is nearly 4 hours away...I said I would go! Now my sister is going and has an office party the night before, so,he isn't going to leave until the day of.....that means I will have to leave my house, travel 1 1/2 hours to meet them, then travel another 3 hours(At least) to the university for a 10:00 am graduation.....from there I don't know....long sorry short...I don't think so...it's just WAY to much traveling for one day, and I work the next day!!!! I would have to leave my house @ 5:30 am to meet them at a meeting spot, that's just crazy!!! I'm backing out.....
I didn't get my nutcrackers up today...hoping tomorrow and will,share.
Hoping too to get a ride in tomorrow,too. It's cold, 20s, but I'll put on the snow pants and go....today was too icy.
Koolio my horses stocked up too when I kept them in during the first two,days of deer season.
I have a call in tot the vet to hear her opinion on the senior feed. Talked to a guy at the local agway, and he said the triple crown senior feed is their best seller and named several people who use it. My thoughts are that when my pasture went south (basically non existent) at the end of summer is when Rainn started to loose her top line. I'm thinking she's just not getting what she needs. I really don't think she is sick. She has good teeth for 25, but her system is off as we know she has issues with her utter and skin....hence why I have a call into the vet. But I am thinking it might be a good call to try the senior feed.
She actually is being used and ridden more now than summer bc we have the bute for her as well as she has her fur!! So much of the summer she was bald and itchy, so I couldn't ride her.
Speaking of...next weekend will be one year since she came to my house,
. I just love that little quirky horse!! She makes me giggle everyday. Just the way she tilts her head and sneaks into the hay mile...she's a bugger.
CCG, what. Did you say was cold for,you in you neck of the woods? My mom swears by the silk long under ware!! I'm hoping to get a pair for Christmas.
Yes,the whole goat death is sad and my mom is blaming herself. Dierks best friend is still grieving....patsy is hardly eating, her tail is down, and she just looks so, so sad.
it's amazing how these goats relate to each other. They are not stupid or heartless animals. Moms mentor came today to see things. He set her straight and told her what she is doing and feeding is fine!! His death is not her fault!! Amazing the different opinions out there in the goat and horse world....that is why I am going straight tot the vet......so many opinions from the internet can be overwhelming and not always right for,your situation or where you live. Ya know?
Stan, I believe boys need a good role model as well....I also believe children need a strong mother figure!! Boys who do not have a strong mom in their lives, even at an early age....turn. I've seen many in the last three years who do not have a mom in the picture....and we have had nothing but issues with them.
. It's sad.
Ok, I've blabbed long enough. Talk soon!!
