Stan, I think that they were Bambi's cousin's mother-in-laws brother's ex-wife's evil twin and her brother. So you'll be ok.

When I see dead pictures, I just think about the amount of work that it will take before they make it to the freezer. My son got 2 deer on the last day of deer season.

I am glad that our deer season is over now just because it got most of the traffic off the dirt roads.

Hi there. I am 46, but here as a mother of a rider. My daughter got a horse last year and he has become such a wonderful member of our family. I enjoy just as much as she does heading out to the barn and being with him. He is a 17 hand off track thoroughbred and such a sweet and gentle horse.
Thanks for starting the post.

I am thankfull you have cleared up the Bambi thing, and very well, I feel better. And yes, there is a lot of work getting them into the freezer. I was surprised how much fat was on the hind I got, she was in very good condition.

I'm not sure I'm falling for this Bambi's distant relative line of defense but I'll go with it. I had a 14 pointer that used to live in the patch of woods out front. I'd see him every morning on my way to work but some hunter got him and mounted him and ate him too... That didn't come out right did it>?

No, it did not, but I am sure you will be forgiven. Eventually.

HP, sounds like things are looking up for you in the riding situation. Hope you also get luck with the pay ratio to responsibility.


Tracey, glad you had a very good teaching weekend and resounded your knowledge of where you want to be teaching.

Stan, glad the hunt went well and you didn't get dead from the exercise. Looks like it would be a lot of work on those type of hunts. We have a lot of thick brush hunting down here and where I hunted in Mississippi. I used a 30/30 lever action for most of my hunts and when it was strung over my shoulder there was a Mossberg 12ga pump. I loved hunting horseback up there.


I'll have pics of the weekend visit with my brother in just a second. I am about to go download the pics to share in my next post. Also got some more pressure washing done on the house. The front of the house is done now that I got the fireplace done. It really does look good, if I do say so myself.

Here is a pic of my and my little brother. It's been about 2 years since I saw him last on a trip to pick mom up from his place and bring back for a visit.

Us with our SOs

Here we took a pic as missing persons formation where our sister would be next to me and mom would be next to my brother.

Then here is the chimney after the cleaning of it yesterday evening.

After the visit, my brother and his gf both were adamant about wanting to move here. Yesterday was his son's 16th birthday so we Skype'd with him and I got to see their home then my brother did a walk-a-bout of ours showing him and when it got to the horses he told them he would be starting on packing all of their stuff while they are headed back home. Lol

Jessa has 2 new admirers as she stole my brother and his gf's heart within 10 minutes of the visit. I think she got more good by loving than I did...What's up with that???





Horse related...


The farrier is coming out today to touch up the boys feet for me. I plan on getting the boys into a steady supply of trails here soon.

Had a day of rest-visiting w/some of our neighbors. Have a ride scheduled later this morning. I sat w/the heating pad on my back last night & it is feeling much better.
