This weekend I painted the fan stands, fan cages, and the BOTTOMS of the tack boxes (how in the world did I neglect to paint the bottoms until after I had packed them all up???)
Animals are walking.
Animals are washed and clipped. Of course, being a PIG and COWS, they will need more baths this week.
The redheaded step child is walking better. Here's to hoping she is good and tired by next Tuesday when she has to show so her attitude doesn't shine through.......
I canned 20 pints of tomatoe sauce and froze 10 dozen ears of sweet corn. On the list for tonight? Canning the 14 pints of beets that are all ready to go, they just need run through the pressure canner.
The yard is mowed, sort of (still have to do down by the road). The camper is packed. Still have to buy food but I'll wait until closer to the weekend.
And we went last night and brought Jessie's heifer and one of her steers for next year. This is the heifer, I don't have a picture of the steer but we are wondering what the heck we were thinking - he looks just like her only solid white! There is a steer/heifer show in Columbus, Ohio over Jessie's birthday - she has already let it be known that either we take these two calves to the show, or she is going back to PA with Todd for doe season. Todd has already decided we are going to the steer show.....
My mom says this is double payback time for all the years I showed a white horse. We'll be buying stock in blueing and woolite.
