So I did a thing at the show. The vendor was back with the Porta-Grazers and maybe the heat got to me but anyway, I bought one. At the show, Remus dived into both the grass hay one and the alfalfa one. And munched while we talked. And seemed to like it. I have it … Continue reading Porta-Grazer Purchased!
I don't know who thought it was a good idea to sign up for a summer show in June in Tennessee. I know it was me but I sure would like to blame someone besides myself. It was indeed hot as Hades. There was a breeze and some cloud cover earlier in the day in … Continue reading We Went, We Sweated, We Conquered!

And the weekend took off from there and never stopped. Whew. I literally fell into bed at 10 pm last nite after going out to clean stalls and … Continue reading What a Weekend: Fences & Shade Cloth, What Fun!
