    Here's my office today. Cutting pastures. Just me, the tractor, the sun flowers, the occasional dust devil, and a buuuuuuuunch of grass hoppers. No time to catch up yet. Gotta get back out there. Happy Wednesday Texans!!

The purple nightshades are shriveling up so going to mow 'em down friday, so the grass can grow up between them...... if we get any more rain! Lol ***knock on wood*** we have a fair amount of grass, told DH to set the mower high, so we can keep it, just get the weeds down!

    Amen on the rain!!! One day I guess....yea we try to do the same thing. Our 7' mower was down for about 6 weeks while we waited on parts so the sun flowers took over. I usually don't like the weeds getting that tall. That and the cockel burrs. I hate those things!!!!! The field in the pic is our winter rye field so I'm just knocking it down completely getting ready for the fall. My other field that I rotate to is bahia and we do like y'all and cut high to keep the weeds down but try to save the bahia. Of course without the rain, there's not much saving going on right now.

    Did y'all hear? Teskey's in Weatherford was raided by ICE today. The gates are shut and locked. No word yet on when (or if) they will reopen.

    (Heard on 1080 when driving home today).

    We had rain three days this week. But it seems like the grass in their paddock didn't grow at all. :/

    Sorry, HM, but what is ICE?

    Thanks for the input and kind words qtr, cc and db. I really appreciate it.
    I just want the best for her, she does hold a special place in my heart. As Db mentioned she is the yearling we rescued. We bought her for a measly $100 to get her out of a bad situation. We didn't really intend to sell her, but my daughter is 10 and she is technically her horse. She made the mature decision to sell her and then take lessons to see what sort of discipline she prefers, and then later on find a more suitable horse for her. I am so proud of her for making such a hard decision and, in spite of feelings, doing what is best.

    Holy crap! Needed to get out there for a couple of Easy boots for my mare before the fall trail rides :(

    True though, that the help out there, uh, has communication issues unless you are fluent in Espanol.
