Here the piggies are today. Happy to see me so they can get food.


Here is Patrick the Great, checking out my scrap metal pile.

 Also , today I found out that goats can swim.  ;)   One of the kids fell into the pool and made it to the steps and got out .

On the last "training sesion" with "Turd" the pack goat we took on river crossings. The first attempt looked more like and old miner with a stuborn mule (both of their butts just off the ground) But the goat was no match for his trainer and he was soon enjoying swimming in the river with the kids. At one point the six legged goat was crossing the river when he dunked his rider face first in the water :D
This goat is a good swimmer and seems to enjoy the water.

4 minature donkeys with a jenny about to drop another one and a calf that we bottlefed from a day old , now about 450 lbs . Had a half dozen chickens but something killed them all one night . Would love to have the land for 40 or 50 head of cows but my neighbor is being stubborn .

Well...right now we're at 8 Clydesdales on the ground, 1 Percheron, 3 quarter horses, and about 50 pair of black Angus cows, 23 black Angus heifers and 2 bulls.  I say "8 Clydesdales on the ground" because we have a baby or 2 on the way at this time.

You have some beautiful horses John, my daughter, nieces, and nephew had their first horse show a few weeks ago in a neighboring town.  We pulled in with our old 20' stock trailer full of $500 horses and I looked at my wife and said what the heck are we doing here (she used to be the 4H leader), she said it's good experience for the kids and their horses, all I said back was the first time I see any of you clipping fake hair onto our horses I quit  :D.  They have a hometown show today and we unloaded at 7, most of the trailers there were hauling cattle yesterday  ;D, I feel a little better about this one.

Hey, it's not the equipment, nor the paint...but how much fun you have!!  I feel the same way you do, Sandhills! Our trailer needs paint and so does the '94 Dodge that drags it along!   Best example I ever saw of that is when I got to go to the National Horse Show at Madison Square Gardens.... outside are all these awesome stainless steel, nice new rigs and trailers and such...by now I'm feeling pretty out of place...then I spy a '72 Chevy 3/4 ton 4x4 (that lime green they had then), and an old 2 horse Miley trailer (powder blue, of course) both accentuated with rust, with Wyoming plates..... my kind of rig! haha   I got to talk with the guy inside...his daughter was riding... we had a blast and decided that our Tony Lama's were probably the ONLY ones there that had actually stepped in cow crap! hahha
