With Kacie getting closer to foaling, I am getting jumpy with the weather keeping the ground soggy. I had plans to make temporary pens in the barn alleyway that I started last summer. I want to get more 6X 6's for future stalls in the center of the barn. Last summer I was waiting for lumber to come down. 12 footers are 85 bucks or more now. They way wait broke the wagon down. Must be true. When I get the gate made and the post in, I will be able to connect it across the alley and also length ways of the alley then still swing it out of the way. I think the video explains it. However, when I view my own videos, I see I skip things I want to show and say. All comments welcome!

Kacie is the only pregnant mare this year. We were having four a year normally until 4 years ago when my Neuropathy in all four limbs slowed me up. I was urged to get rid of the horses by family and doctors. The horses have been pasture ornaments with the mares open. As a stubborn old man, I started to plan to make it possible for me to continue with my condition. I knew I would need to have a solid pace to use my wheelchair as well as a vehicle that fit my needs. With thinking every move I make I have not fell in over a year. I started the videos to prove to family I can safely do all needed chores and building me self as I have all my life. I do things and then tell them. At the last doctor visit he sais, I don't want you do do anything stupid. I told hm I planned to live until I died. I had bo intention of dying and waiting years to stop breathing. At this tome I have no other health problems. My only deadly vise I have ever had is over eating from time to time,

Amen to what was posted above by all of you! You remind us that we have a choice in how we approach each day, and I know this is harder for some than for others.

You aren’t long winded either! Thank you for sharing so much of yourself and your wisdom.

As Ryan stayed, safe foaling to your beautiful mare….they are all lovely!
