Just Like Me


Morgan came back to the house looking like this the other day, after going out to the barn to help me with tossing some hay for the animals.

She looks just like me!

We’re off to look at some rescue horses today. (ONLY LOOKING. This is an exploratory outing.) I’ll let you know how it goes!

    Oh yea! Just “looking.” I know exactly how that goes. Jake and I did just that. Came home with two! Suzanne you might as well hook up the trailer, and save a trip, you know your coming home with horses! Have fun you two!!!! Lifes a rocket ride, buckle up!!

    Ha ha! I have gone to work like that and had colleagues picking hay out of my hair.
    Good luck horse-viewing!

    LOL, Angela. No, we absolutely will not come home with a horse. I will not have a horse here until I’m ready for a horse here. I need to make fencing repairs in the fields where I intend to keep the horse, and I also want grass growing before a horse comes. I’m not prepared with hay for a horse right now. We are really just looking.

    Have fun!!!

    Yes, only looking. Be extra careful with that. My husband did that a few weeks ago. We had planned on 8 goats in total. Already had 6. He went to look at a group with a plan to bring home 3 or 4 of them. Yes, already over our original plan…he brought home 9! They were living in a mud pit, needed their feet cared for, needed to be able to eat standing up! So now we have 15 and they are all pregnant. Life is a little chaotic at feeding time. :shocked: Not to mention the chaos that is coming in April. Excuse me if you have heard this story before, it is on my mind lately. 8)

    Just wanted to share Passion Horse Rescue in Joshua, TX. They rescue PMU Horses. If you don’t know why rescueing horses would have anything to do with the hormone replacement drug Premarin visit their site. Premarin stands for PREgnant MARe urIN.

    All it took was a horse farm…she has the bug. Now onto COOKING! LOL!

    Cindy, I’m making fricassee de poulet a l’ancienne for the girls (Morgan and her friend who is spending the weekend with us) for dinner tomorrow from Mastering the Art of French Cooking, LOL! Wish me luck! (That translates to old-fashioned chicken fricassee, and it’s with a wine-flavored cream sauce, onions, and mushrooms.)

    Is looking at rescue horses anthing like looking at rescue dogs? If so, Morgan will probably (maybe) have a horse this weekend.

    I wanted a horse painfully badly when I was Morgan’s age. I had hatched all kinds of money-making schemes to prep our property for horse–from buying fencing to building a shelter. I’m glad I get to reminisce and see Morgan’s excitement and adventure. I can just pretend I’m going through it too! And who needs the trailer? Morgan will just ride it home alongside the car. :D Right?

    It would be so sad to have only one horse by itself~~ they crave companionship. Just saying.

    Just listening to the description of Julia’s recipe makes me hungry for it. Yummm,chicken,cream sauce,wine,mushrooms–delicious! I made the mistake of making cream of mushroom soup with her recipe for Thanksgiving and now my family insists I make it for every holiday. Its NOTHING like the familiar canned variety! Just be careful with some of those recipes..they’re like food crack to my family. :hungry:

    As a volunteer at a draft horse rescue I am THRILLED to hear you’re looking at rescues!! :fairy:

  14. 3-10

    shirley, I have two equines for companionship to a horse–the donkeys.

    Another good source to start perusing is ponyclub.org Lots of times pony clubbers outgrow their horses or go off to college & don’t have time anymore. Good source for good equipment too… good luck with it – I was never much of a looker – I’m a buyer for sure.

    When i was growing up my dad was a horse trainer. Off and on through the years we had a goat as a companion for the horses. I think you got that covered.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
