    Forgot to add, my Barn Swallows disappeared sometime in the last week. None to fly around me while mowing fields. HOWEVER, the Hummingbirds are still here to see on their daily visits. They seem...

    Our Craigslist ad is for all the "stuff" we have that is not used, so the front barnyard is OPEN for plowing and piling up snow. Sold several things so far. Probably WILL get the tires on the old...

    Go to that Lucas site posted above, get a full gate instead of just the top half. I am sure they have both swinging models and roller models that slide to the side. Pony, not sure on size, can see...

    Spend the money and get a Lawyer NOW. She has already been advised to use the Innkeepers Act, so maybe that is pertinent to the method of eviction. Have damages and storage of equipment been...

    Glad you like them so much, because they sure are using the heck out of you! As said, you pay board, THEY provide the SAFE enclosure to keep your equines in. Great to call for a "Barn Cleanup Day"...

    Might want to check if tractor warrenty is void if you put non-JD attachements on. With a new tractor, at least you HAVE the warrenty, unlike folks who buy used and put on whatever they want.

    We weed whack around here, using Weed Whackers of various makes.

    Already had my dream wedding, and it was pretty darn perfect for us. One crying baby was the only hiccup. Mom made the dresses for me and bridesmaids. She is as good as any professional, did just...

    Has the bone been stabilized with a shoe? Time counting down for healing, starts once the bone and broken part is stabilized. More x-rays usually are called for as time goes by, to see the progress...

    Our mares will and have peed in harness. We stop and give them opportunities to go, while out driving. Our mares when in season HAVE to go about once an hour, they get rather frantic, you have no...

    Have to say, unless you paint two red buildings within a week of each other, you will never have an exact match. Red family of color is about the hardest to stay "fixed" in paint, fabric, metal...
