If you have followed our blog you know that our biggest challenge moving to a new state was finding the best professionals to help us care for the animals. We can check Dental Service off the list. Today we had a visit from Akeley's Equine Dental Service. Steve was such a awesome choice professional and patient. He explained every step of the proccess and was kind to Jake. Having a professional with a kind manor is so very important when you have an animal who was previously miss handled.

When you use every minute of day light to get your chores done you are aware of how many there are. Today we are expecting a heat wave 34 .
I am still very focused on spring (49days). The blog and it's photo's will soon include allot more garden and yard info in addition to the pets. I am ordering seeds.

We have ordered the New Seed catalogs , and decided where the new raised garden beds will go. On Friday I visited an Organic farm and joined their Garden Share program. The farm is based around their team of Belgian draft horses that are the source of power for food production. They sell vegetables, flowers, herbs, dry beans, and eggs through our Community Supported Agriculture program . They use the horses to do all of the plowing, harrowing, and mowing. Planting is done by hand and cultivation is shared between the horses and owners. It was fun to talk to other gardeners and Draft Owners .http://www.wildroot.com/
When it snows like this you fantasise about spring and summer in Maine.

I took a road trip to Plymouth Thursday to visit Mom, and brought Harry back with me.
This new little truck now in my kitchen came from Mom's for Bob and I with our Christmas gifts. It's perfect, a little farm truck with 5 dogs.
Harry came up for a couple days, today is his Birthday. We had a nice visit. The wind chill was harsh so we could not spend lots of time out side, but it was nice to hang out. The boys love the extra attention.
