New Mini Whiny

Another miniature horse has come to live on the farm. Her registered name is Wolfpens Mystic. We call her Misty Misty will be the perfect mini whinny for Holly to learn to ride on. And gosh, what little girl doesn't want her own little pony. She is both saddle and cart trained. Here is Tim grooming her, and Misty modeling her new purple halter. Thanks Uncle Tim!

News from the Farm

Big news! Holly has found her toes! She is growing and changing so fast. The kids have two strollers. The "good" stroller is in Karol's car. The "farm" stroller lives on the porch. This is the stroller that is used almost daily now that the weather is nice. Holly loves to be outside and is especially fascinated with all the critters. Snuggles sometimes rides around with her, which she loves.

Last night we took her to visit the baby ducks and baby chicks at Tractor Supply. I think she is really going to like living on a farm!

This week when I was in Charlotte, I went and got a haircut. She took off a lot of hair, and finally, all the colored hair is gone. This is all natural, gray hairs and all, and not too bad for 50. So I'm going to go natural for a while. I do like the cut, she did a good job.

Spring is here!

Spring is here and it's kidding time. That means milking time.

That also means cheesemaking time.

I also need to get my garden in, or it's not going to happen.
Check out what we were listening to on XMRadio. Aspirations, by Papa John & Daniel. I didn't even know they had a band!
