Baby Doves

by @ Tuesday, August 21st, 2012. Filed under Farm Life, Miscellaneous

This morning I was walking across the yard and almost stepped on these two little guys: I picked them up to show Sami then debated what to do with them. I googled how to try and feed them and in doing so learned the parents will usually find the babies and still feed then wherever […]

Horses, Horses, Too Many Horses

by @ Friday, August 17th, 2012. Filed under Horses

Time gets away from me so fast. So many horse updates. I realized I referenced Jim in my last post but never introduced him. So here is the saga of my latest horse adventures. Stormy, the paso I was so excited about sadly did not work out. For a while he did great. He moved […]

Riding the Range

by @ Thursday, August 16th, 2012. Filed under Horses, Kids

In most ways Sami takes after Ern. I joke that I KNOW she’s his but I’m not sure she’s mine. But like her mama she is nuts for the horses. Before this she’s ridden her pony with someone leading her and has ridden Boniface double with me. But she has done really well lately with […]

Sami’s Ride

by @ Thursday, August 30th, 2012. Filed under Horses, Kids

Our sweet corn raising has been a hit or miss experience. As a second generation Ohioan who grew up on entire meals of sweet corn when in season I know what good corn is and will not settle for less. Having married a farmer with third generation produce experience you’d think outstanding sweet corn would […]

The Produce Wagon

by @ Friday, August 17th, 2012. Filed under Garden, Horses

For years Ern’s family raised a big garden and sold produce at the courthouse square to make extra money. There came a point when Ern was no longer a part of that and he’s missed it. He concocted the idea of using the wagon he built me to haul produce down to the road and […]

What are people thinking??

by @ Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012. Filed under Rabbits

Some time ago I wrote a post about an unfortunate miscommunication with a guy who drove clear from Ohio to look at bull calves we didn’t have (Ern thought they were talking heifers, he apparently thought bull calves; amazingly, neither caught the misunderstanding in that single conversation). He never called after the initial phone conversation […]
