Please continue to pray

More than anything, however, it is my master's soothing words that I crave I chuckle at those who pity me, for I am his beloved friend and partner, not his slave.

One Foot In Front Of The Other
















Today we will start the task of rebuilding Jake's hooves. Maybe later I can get Nickel to model his hooves so you can see what draft feet should look like.

One Day At A Time.




Today is Jake's first day out. He's had 4 days of nourishment , he's been dewarmed and today is going to be Jake's first full day out. He needs a heavy winter blanket , because he has no body fat, to generate heat.

Birthday Breakfast


Bobby and Keri made me the most awesome Birthday Breakfast,yum.

Road Trip











We took a road trip, to Meaders Supply with Bobby,Keri and Rocco. We did a little shopping for some necessities for Jake.

Meet Jake











Jake is our NEW project,not that we were looking for a project.
Bob and I
have been shopping for a second horse to ad to our farm.
We wanted some one older then Nickel that was sound with good manners.
Then we , met Jake.
Jake is under weight , and banged up. He was not treated very nice by the Amish. After seeing his kind eye and gentle manner we could not say no for fear that he would not get the forever home he deserves. Jake is going to need lots of LOVE , FOOD and PRAYERS.

Pig Pig




Pig does not want to go far from his house

Burr cold











It is beginning to look a lot like winter.Today it was 20 - 23. the winds were harsh bringing the temp. down.Pig is nestled in. The bird feeders were very bizzy as was the bird bath (strange but I guess they still need drinking water.) Nick and Mini do not seem fazed.

Waiting




Nick and Mini were confined to the side yard as Bob and Bobby worked on the fence. Both boys are getting winter coats.

The Grass is always greener




Bob and Bobby re structured the fence . The "new" fence is safer and more spacious. Nick was quick to check out the newly exposed grass.

Sunday Breakfast







Mom makes every one a special breakfast on Sundays. Bunny Mice's and Pieces appreciate this.

Company for Pig...
















At the end of the day we were in the yard putting away the wagon and walking the dogs,when we had a visit. Some of the club members had finished up a trail ride and stopped in to say hi. It is a blessing to be able to expose our animals ,people and sounds, Pig was very happy. 3 of the horses in the photo belong to Dick and Charlene.

Fall Back
















Today was a nice fall day. Bob and I made the most of our extra hour. We did chores , took a ride to NH. and then took the boys for a drive. Yes, "the boys" Nickel and Mini. Today was the first time we took Mini along. Mini did awesome, he ponied behind the cart. I think he believes he is a big horse.
