Why I Have Grey Hairs

Hello friends! So, my neighbors think I’m nuts. This is not necessarily a new development but I am reminded of it fairly often and just recently it happened again. So, my sweet Ro, a relatively steady, bombproof little mare has opinions on birds that range from “these wee things annoy me” to “this is clearlyContinue reading “Why I Have Grey Hairs”

Tsch Tsch Tsch

Hello friends! What a week. I unfortunately got pretty sick again this week, but I think mostly due to the very long hours at work and the weather and pollen counts.

The Event of the Season

Trigger warnings: vet stuff, needles, vaccinations, minor injuries, general farm medical dramas Hello friends!  It was farm call day last week, where all the critters on the farm that can get vaccinated, do.  This one was definitely a little rougher than the others, not going to lie.
