He's already taller than everyone else..
Well there is always Quail (sold in stores as game hens) , Chukar, or Pheasant or some other breed of bird that are few in number these days and maybe native to Pa. and neighboring states. Here in Ohio wild Quail and Pheasant are non existent except in some areas that have paid hunting for them.

I was of the opinion Link was taller as I am thinking the corral panels are 6 Ft. and was trying to compare Link to the height of the panel.

I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within. Douglas MacArthur

@SueC , since the change of meds (different action pathway), the headaches are less. Basically, he had a very hard time studying, but now that is not a concern since schools are closed. MRI showed a megacistern magna, but not pathological.

We have the appointments for cardiologist, neurologist and lab work this week, and the CT scan next week. That is no longer an option now.

My mum and son have just landed in Boston as I am writing this. Praise be to everything praisable!


In case some of you have not seen my comments in the Covid19 thread, Spain had been declared in a State of Alarm. Borders closed, federal government taking over. All schools closed. Only pharmacies, gas stations and supermarkets open. Just a heads up so that you get prepared NOW. We are only 1-2 weeks ahead of the US in disease progression. Stock up, then stay home. Sending strength and positive thoughts!

What about feed stores? What will farmers do?

Praying for your son, good to hear the headaches are decreased.

Here, feed for farm animals is not sold in stores, it is delivered to our barn by a distributor. Of course, truckers will be allowed to move produce, so this probably falls under this category. I am assuming that in agricultural areas of the US affected by COVID19, feed stores will be considered essential operations.

But, hopefully it won't get that bad where you are!

I am low on feed but have to wait until have more money in bank. February always wipes me out.

@Spanish Rider hope you all stay well. Is your DH better?

@AnitaAnne , I am on the fence about DH. Since going to the airport yesterday, his cough is worse. It is not a dry cough, but there may be overlap. He usually has sinus conditions (that big Mediterranean nose), so post-nasal drip is common in him each winter, and since we basically did not sleep yesterday with the airport fiasco I think he's just worn out.

Even so, we are keeping our distance, sleeping apart since last Sunday, and he has not been allowed to touch anything in the kitchen this week - only the dirty dishes!

I'll have him take his temp in the am before letting him leave his room (I have moved out of the master so he has more space if he does need to quarantine).

@Spanish Rider - I hope you're right and your DH is just suffering spring allergies! My oldest son is stuck in Germany. He was supposed to come home in two weeks, but with international travel bans, he may be stuck for awhile. We were told to bring our computers home this weekend in case the company decides to close the offices. I wouldn't mind working from home, especially as Kyle is immune-compromised since he's on dialysis. We'll see what Monday brings.

@AnitaAnne - I was told today that Chamois and Maverick (the paint appaloosa unicorn) are mine if I want them. Just have to go get them. I'm seriously considering it. In fact, Kyle and I are trying to figure out where a new barn could be built.

The eye doctor looked at my contacts fit this week and has ordered me a new set with hopefully a better fit. Fingers crossed!!

Or just do what my BO did: the barn started out as a 4 stall barn... Added 2 walls and 2 doors and ta-da: out of 2 stalls make 4

I know you were looking at those two for quite a while...

@SwissMiss - I was planning on training Chamois to sell her - for my friend - to you for DD. 😁 Still think you need her. Maverick is going to be interesting. He seems pretty friendly and willing to try, but gets insecure and crowds when he doesn't understand what is being asked if him.

He needs groceries and a top line, but may turn out ok. Plan is to sell him after training unless he's super smooth and makes my back happy.

Maverick is so unique looking, and Chamois is a beauty. The owner needs to downsize, and you need another project! Build another barn! Divide the one you have! Go for it!




I doubt you would have a problem finding a buyer for either one of them once they are saddle broke.

@Change I hope your son can make it back home soon. The virus is changing the world...

@Spanish Rider you are wise to self quarantine even from each other. Hopefully this will end soon. Everyone is praying the hot humid weather will halt the spread and we can all get back to normal.


For once, I am praying for the hot and humid weather to come early...
