It is hot. I get all my stuff done early and stay inside. This old gal don't handle heat well.

Yesterday's ride was fun. I slide up on a very fresh Charm bareback with shorts and no shoes. She was snorty and on-the-muscle for most of the ride. Gunnie and DH lead most of the time.

Gunnie is always soooooo disappointed when we turn around to head back... I've never had a horse that goes so slow on the way home ... He LOVES to go... so proud of the work he and DH have done. They are turning into quite the team...

Kc .. so much of that, I believe, was a direct result of the time he spent with Mr kctop. He's been inspired and unstoppable ever since ......

Not much horsin' around here - other than calling them all up and hosing them off. Actually, they saw me getting the hose out and came up on their own. It's hot and only getting hotter - they were covered with white, salty streaks. My pony looked as white as ever, but of course when adding water, the dirt comes off as buckets of mud. I was careful and didn't do to thorough a job and only washed off the salt and sweat. He survives better with dirt up against his skin, under his coat otherwise he gets sunburned. His painted body is mostly white with pink skin underneath. But I do have to watch his face, eyes and nose this time of the year - there is always a faint smell of coconut in the air around the horses in August at my house.

I suppose this makes me thankful for all these trees. It's hot, but the horses aren't swimming in sweat like they were in the open pasture...

I know the feeling cc. Brought the ponies in to get out of the sun this morning. My mare and I finished our discussion about the boots.I won and she did good, even worked her over calvetti type poles in the round pen. We had the neighbors jack donkey in our pasture this morning and had to send him home. Now were waiting to load the longhorn bull so he can go to his new home! It's been a very busy day and it's hotter than he...... outside.

Green Broke
I'm actually about to go to the barn to give the chickens some treats and to wash Mr. Heenie Weenie. I'm sure they'll all appreciate a break in the summer heat.

The auction last night was a lot of fun. We actually stayed to watch the horses being auctione off for the first time in years. I was very apprehensive when a mare and month old foal came out, but was relieved when the auctioneer said they won't be splitting them up. What disgusted me though was two two year old Paso Fino STUDS that were broke to ride. They looked like they were 8-9 months old at the most. Henny was a lot more mature than they were. The people had their 5 year old son riding them(by riding I mean tryin to kick the snot out of them while they just stood there) so the dad hopped on and rode behind him. Then the boy got off and the dad kicked them into moving around. It was just pitiful. I was so disappointed. Needless to say, no one offered more than 50 for either of them but the guy wanted at least 200 each so they weren't sold.

DBA! Question for you!!!

My daughter is having one of her good friends over to spend the night (I've been infiltrated by teenagers this summer it seems) and she is Jewish. Her family actually just got back from Israel where they stayed and visited extended family for the entire summer. When her mom lets her stay with others for sleepovers, she requests that her daughter eat salads and veggies and not to eat anything else. I know that she says that b/c it is easier for the other parents to understand without having to go into details of foods/religion/etc, but I'm opposite - I want to know all the details of how/why/what.

What meats are off limits and what makes a Jewish teenager drool when it comes to food? You would know, right?

Maybe it is complicated for the average family here but not for me - we have a very eclectic group of international friends from Russian to Indian, French to German and when we all get together we cook for each other and have a great time trying new things and learning new culture tidbits several times a year so I get really excited about this kind of stuff.

Specifically what meats can you eat and is there anything special in the way they should be prepared? I know pork is off limits - what about chicken? I know I know - I could google it but I'd rather ask an expert!

I have the right kind of chicken I think - homegrown, bled out and processed by me and I cook it in a crockpot that is only used for meat....

Clippityclop any animal with front teeth is forbidden and the animal must chew its cud. No rodents, scavengers, pigs or predators Also the animal should be slaughtered according to the bible.
Fish must have fins and scales. No catfish, shrimp, or lobster.
Jews do not eat the fat of any animal and certain parts of the animal if it is allowed are also forbidden.
You can buy foods if there is a local grocery that sells Kosher meats. They are more expensive than non kosher foods.
She might not eat dairy and meats at the same time and she cannot use the same plate for meat and then for cheese.
However if she is allowed to eat at your house she probably does not adhere strictly to a kosher diet.
Talk to the mother and show her you will abide by the dietary restrictions so your young guest may enjoy her visit and your family experience another culture.
Glad you asked and if you have any other questions ask me. Shalom
