I have had a tough schedule these last several days. It is time now to catch up on farm work. The weather is about to dump rain on us, so I will be pushing hard to get things done. These are the times when I, sadly, must put the horses aside and use a tractor for farm work. It is still farm work…but it is simply not the same as I push into the night, stopping only for fuel.

It is so much better when the horses and I work these fields. Working and sweating together, but resting and sipping water that way too. I will do what I have to do to keep the farm running, but I don’t have to like it! I will use the horses for a few jobs and if the weather holds we will plant corn before the rain soaks us all.

The above photo is a snapshot taken during the filming of our documentaries. It is now the current cover page on Facebook for Rural Heritage magazine.Β  The second episode aired last week. The boys sure made me look good. I hope to get a pic or two this week as they help me catch up, but for the next day or so the tractor will have to drown out my grumbling as I watch the horses over the fence.

I watched both of your videos, they were great. You can tell your horses and your dog just love you! I have been following your blog for about a year now and i’ve read all your past posts. They are very interesting and informative I wish I knew someone with your knowledge so I can get my own place up and running properly πŸ™‚

Snow is a funny thing. It is beautiful and I like to play in it, but once spring comes, it’s nice to see it go!
