Sorry about that TG - I had to 'end' one of my little peeps - came out to find him running around with no beak, just a big bloody hole in his face with his little tongue inside and big brown eyes on each side. UGH. We've shot two more coons since then so maybe we got the one that did it.

I can't seem to find a chicken processor around here - the person that used to do it doesn't do it anymore but I found a guy in Bryan who rents a chicken plucker - can pluck three chickens at once in 30 seconds - rents $25 a day. Might end up going that route. I can do the processing, but my arthritis in my hands would kill me for a week afterwards just plucking even one or two birds.

But it is time - these roosters are really getting on my nerves at this point - they are old enough to bother my hens now. I also think one of my blue chochin pullets is indeed a male - he is getting a rather large comb and wattle compared to his sibling and is acting like a boy... he sure is pretty and going to be a BIG bird.

I ended up having to throw out my first batch of canned tomatoes - I realized a couple of days later that I started canning them following one recipe but somehow ended the process following the end of a different recipe and didn't process them long enough. You can reprocess within 24 hours if you make a mistake, but not days later. That was about 100 tomatoes down the garbage disposal. BUT I've gotten 14 quarts canned since then so that helps. Going to do carrots tomorrow.

I've never canned chicken, but my grandma did all the time - I know it's safe, but I still feel like a newbie at this canning business and to be honest, I'm too chicken to can chicken! LOL! I've heard it is GOOD tasting stuff tho - especially if you can it with bones.... LOL - maybe I will try it. It may sit on my shelf forever, but I think i will give it a try.

Kayella if you keep it up and study hard and work on your own horses regularly (you probably already do), in a couple of years, you can become pretty proficient at it and save yourself a LOT of $$. Which means you can have MORE horses.....

Sorry to hear about the chickens, TG and CC. ): Dang predators. And boo about having to throw away all those tomatoes! But it sounds like you still have a billion more

Nu, we better get pics of that baby! Name it Kit, so and you can have Kit and Cat. :P

Lol CC, you're such an enabler! I've been trimming my own ponies for about the past 9 years or so, but it's nothing to brag about. Just barefoot pasture trims on spoiled pasture puffs. Heck, I'd never seen a shoe on a horse until I went out with my farrier last weekend! And I got to pull it! I'm hoping I can work with him again tomorrow as I have work off.

Kit! I kinda like that!
Her drop of wax has turned in to alot of wax, with a steady stream of fluid leaking out. Twinges of contractions, I'm sure, kicking belly, ears back. If I rub her belly she falls asleep, and the contractions stop... so I quit rubbing! her Hoo-Haa is looselooseloose! Hopeing for that sucker tonight or in the morning!

She was dropping it as you typed that!
Have a beautiful little filly! (2 holes under tail is female, DBA!)

Here's pics, it's my FB album, but it's a link the public can see. I'll take better ones in the morning. PRetty little star and stripe. When she came out, her front legs were a beautiful golden palomino color! She's a pretty little sorrel, rabicano markings already, Coon eyes on the tail, white in the flanks! can't wait to see what she sheds out to be!
She didn't make me wait for weeks, and be up all night on foal watch! She waxed, then foaled, same day! lol
