Entry for July 23, 2007

Hey all

It was an excellent working weekend. 

My pasture is starting to take on a new shape.  Everytime I go out to brush hog I clear out some more weeds/brambles.  I keep telling my daughter she is going to get lost because I keep changing the way the pasture looks.  lol  Next weekend I will go out with the box blade and clean up some more of the tree limbs and such that need to be burned.  When I get some more of it cleaned up then I can go back in with the brush hog again.

One of these days I need to get out there with my chain saw and start cutting wood for winter.

I also got the walls started in my stallion barn.   Yipeeeeee I knew once I got the wood in the barn it would go pretty quickly.  I think I am going to delay more work on the walls to lay out the stalls.  I am going to be putting in some more posts and I want to use cement so I figure if I get them done they can start setting up and by the time I am done with the walls then the posts should be set and the stalls should go up quickly. 

Our cow Louise had a little bull calf black baldie we have named him bandit.  Such a cute little thing.  He will be sold to pay for hay.  Now we are waiting for Wilma (cow) to have hers.  I sure wish she would hurry up.

We have also decided to sell Ollie (our bull).  We have never had a problem until now with him wanting to get out of our pasture.  Well now he is tearing up fences and I have to much work to do to be worring about what fence I need to fix next.  Come next June when the cows need to be bred again we will either lease a bull or buy a new one.

Commanches Red Beauty a/k/a Red is supposed to be the first to deliver this year.  Her due date is August 24th.  That is only about 5 weeks away.  Time to get into foal watch seriously!  LOL  Because Peanut (maden) is due a week after Red and we don't have a due date for Bess. [sigh]  Who knows maybe Peanut will deliver first.  :))

I can't remember if I told you all my bedroom is now finished and I have been able to sleep in my own bed now for about a week.  It is heaven.  My mom is getting the living room cleaned out and we can almost see the front door.  LOL 

I will be breeding for fall babies in 2008 so that means my breeding season is almost hear also.  I can't believe this year has gone by so quickly.  {sigh}  I have gotten alot of work done but I haven't worked with the horses much.  {sigh}

Well that is what I have for now.  Everyone take care and stay safe.
