Thanks for all the tips on cooking goat meat, guys. I really appreciate it.

I didn't get to ride this weekend - we were back at work on the pasture. Got quite a few trees knocked down, too bad they are too small to do anything with other than burn. I wanted to cut them up for firewood, but son in law doesn't want to mess with that, so I guess we'll be having some bonfires on the days that the wind is calm. Here in Oklahoma, that's not too often, but brush piles surrounded by grassy pasture beats stands of trees covering brush and bare ground any day.

I'm sore as all get out, and covered in rashes due to the cedar sap. A couple of the grandkids got into some poison ivy that the horses and goats missed. (It seems that the horses and goats thing poison ivy is some sort of candy?). The grandkids rashes aren't very bad - a little Ivarest and benedryl, and they sleep just fine.

The grandkids also discovered, after all these years, that trees are also good for climbing. The youngest one, though, hasn't quite figured out how to climb back down:

She's kind of grounded from climbing trees. She tends to climb the ones that aren't big enough for us to climb up and get her!

Yesterday I cut my mares manes and tails, shaved the faces and ears, and shaved off the feathers. I bet they hate me now!

Lol! I can shave only on my paint. With my qh doesn't matter what I tried I ONLY can use very small and sharp scissors and have to be extremely careful and gentle around the ear. Everything else she refuses to tolerate completely.

I opened them...see my SmartPaks ship soon, and anything shipped with them ship free, so I was SAVING money!

But when it arrives, I'll be doing this:

Hubby said no more horse items coming to the house...so doesnt that mean I can just have them shipped to the barn???

Dee - Love the tree climbing pics, how fun!

Heading to the barn this morning to get Kestrels blanket off, its supposed to be 70 today HALLELUIAH! Am going to bring it home and wash it (since Hubby will be at work, what he won't know won't hurt him) Then tonight I'll take it back to the barn and put it back on (still is in low 40s here at night).

Strange thing - when I pulled up last night to put her blanket back on she was eating, she looked up at me and had tears streaming down her face. I opened the stall and took a good look to be sure her eyes looked ok, they did. Patted her neck, rubbed her nose, and the tears stopped. What the heck is that about??

Do you think maybe it was some type of allergic reaction?

If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.
