After lots of cold, tons of snow, etc., etc., etc. I think Spring may finally be on it's way in here. It was 72 degrees here yesterday.
It's hard to believe that not even 2 weeks ago we were doing this. And now everything looks like this:
What have we been up to? Not a whole heck of a lot. Which is really nice considering Jessie has been having 2 basketball practices every week in the evenings since December. But we did sign up for 4-H on Wednesday night.
Last night we ear tagged the 2 baby calves that we have so far and let them loose. Feisty little things. And then we had a mini party out in the barn when a friend and his family came over. We will buy Jessie's 4-h pigs from him. And his daughter fell in love with Shamy. So it looks like if all goes well this weekend when she comes back to ride her, I will be less 2 horses (he is planning on buying Kiara for himself and leasing Shamy for his daughter indefinitely). Which is fine, as I've thought long and hard about keeping the horses. I don't have time to ride, Jessie and Tyler do not want to ride and really - the one horse that I used to show, Shamy, is too nice of a horse to just sit out in the pasture and do nothing. She thrives on being ridden and shown and worked with. So I will send them to a fantastic home and when Jessie and Tyler are all grown up and gone, I will buy myself another horse and start showing again. It will be wierd not having a horse, I have always had one since I was 9 or 10. But I'm not thinking about that and instead I am thinking about how happy she will be if this all works out.
This weekend I have to work Saturday, but on Sunday we are planning on cleaning out the barn and getting ready to put Jessie's 4-H animals in there. Unless it's raining and then I will be cleaning in the house and making our trash hauler mad at me again for putting so many bags out there.....
Have a great day
