    ever seen a pig smile?

    no? well, you have now! pigs are loathe to share. they want things to themselves. however, arnold and porkahontas have always been the best of buddies. yesterday, they took it to a whole new level.

    meet "jackson"!

    this handsome fella was turned in to kansas city rescue a few weeks ago. his drug-addicted owner kicked him outside in the cold where he stayed for a month. the idiot took him to the shelter because "all he did was whine to come in the house". ugh!! he will be arriving here on thursday...

    latest additions to my petting zoo

    i picked up my last 2 fainters yesterday. this is sheldon... and t-bone... they were just recently weaned and it's been so beastly hot here, they are a bit thin but i don't think it'll take long before they bulk up. the girls bossed them around for a few minutes but then they settled...

    little goats arrived

    my 3 little fainter does were delivered yesterday morning. they are about 13 weeks old and just as cute as can be! they're a bit skittish but it didn't take long before they were eating leaves out of my hand. they are not the least bit afraid of my 3 danes. in fact, when they see the...

    kind of a bittersweet day

    the folks from "Pony Pals" picked up my mini boys this morning. not having been loaded on a trailer in many years, i wasn't sure how they would act. this was a HUGE stock trailer and was quite a sizable jump up for them. thankfully, red jumped right in and rebel followed right behind him. i...

    dispersing my little herd of 2

    i am recovering from very serious back surgery. i'm doing well, feel so much better but my surgeon has told me that while my surgery was 100% successful, if i mess up my back again, there will not be anything left to fix. i have come to the realization that i must make some lifestyle changes...

    my son's wedding

    tuesday was one of the best days of my life! everything from the weather to the surprises i had planned (a monarch butterfly release and a wedding carriage) could not have been better. the wedding was small, only 15 people in total, very intimate, quiet, everything i have ever imagined that...

    wanna see my mother-of-the-groom dress?

    the bio-sponge people

    last week i got an e-mail from them asking how the bio-sponge was working for tuffy. i e-mailed them back and told them that sadly, it did not help and that i had decided to lay him to rest a few weeks ago. yesterday, in my snail mail, i got the nicest sympathy card signed by the whole...

    RIP tuffy :(

    i made this decision after much thought, conferences with 3 vets, all of whom said it was most likely intestinal cancer. tuffy has had blood in his manure for the past few days and this morning, he peed blood. he is buried in the big alfalfa field not far from where my old mare was laid to...

    big horse question

    tuffy turned 28 in may. for the last few weeks, he has had diarrhea off and on. i have tried everything from sand clear to metamucil. his diet has not changed at all. he lost a lot of weight over the winter and continues to lose. he will have normal manure one day and then for the next...

    i will lay simon to rest today

    i made this decision several weeks ago. simon is pretty much completely down in his back end...degenerative myelopathy. he is beginning to have incontinence issues and i have watched in agony as the sparkle has left his eyes. he is so sad that he cannot participate in all of the things he has...
