2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 9,600 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Warlock the wonder horse is back!

After a few month training at Rachael’s farm Warlock is back with his dad and the herd.

Izzy and Chex were so glad to see him!  Apple eah not so much.

Later that week I captured a beautiful run around session with father and son.

Trail Rides and Kitties

Leave a comment

Over the weekend was the first time in forever my 3 kitties were together.  Being barn cats you wonder about their welfare when you don’t see them for a while.  So I captured the moment with them.  I hope the new owners are OK with them staying behind.

(I know what your thinking… No, I haven’t had any bites yet on the farm.  Showings have been fewer this time around, we thought we had a few good leads but it appears no one is ready to pull the trigger.)

On Sunday, we took Dalton, Apples and Chex on a trail ride around Green Lane.  It was a perfect fall day to get the horses out. Fresh air, open spaces and trials through the woods is a great way to clear the cob webs from your head.

Goodbye Sunbun

Leave a comment

After being with us for almost 4 years we said goodbye to Sunbun.  Check out this arrival post here.

He is such a good boy and will definitely be missed.  Especially his treat face… he tilts his head sideways, stretches his neck and puckers his lips whenever there are treats around.

This slide show is from his leaving day.  SB’s mom said he is doing good in his new farm and was a good boy during transport.

Showings = Dog walks in the park

Leave a comment

I have had 6 showings since the farm went on the market.  Showings this round is a lot more stressful then the first time I had the house on the market.  I have to stage the house to make it look like I don’t live here.  This includes putting down white things which must be taken up between showings because they would not stay white with 3 black dogs.  Then I have to pack me and the 3 dogs up and remove ourselves from the property.

So we go to the park, which has actually been great for all of us.  The weather is cool and the dogs enjoy the opportunity to sniff new things. The leaves are just starting to turn which make for some beautiful views.

Updates on the re-homed

Cuervo is loved by his new family in NJ.  He seems to be fitting right in and doing really well.

CuervoCasey is enjoying semi-retirement, as he doesn’t have to do lessons anymore.  His new owner could not be happier with him.  He is best buddy is a grey named Ricochet. The two graze side-by-side, hang out in the same stall, and when one is taken from the other, they whinny and pace to get back together.

image1 image2Bilbo and Frodo are taking their time settling into their new home. They are being a little head strong and skittish for their new owner.  She was having trouble moving them from from one location to the next so she tried a training flag.  They flipped out when they saw it and tried to kill the flag like a dog would.  She said it was pretty funny and she had never seen anything like it. Luckily they have each other because the horses and cats on the farm are scared of them.  Hopefully they all will warm up to each other.

Third Time’s a Charm

Leave a comment

So lets see if this one sticks. Today I sent the donkeys off to their third home. The first one, they changed their mind, then the next the donkeys didn’t do their job. But I have a good feeling about this one. Sounds like they will be going to a lovely farm with horses and chickens where their only job is to eat grass.

So that just leaves Apple who is spoken for when it is time for me to go. The barn cats will stay and the dogs are coming with me.

Sad but it is also kinda a relief to know I found them good homes.
