A lot has been going on as well as a lot of nothing. I’ve been letting the girls get settled in and not asking too much of them besides learning their new routine. My morning feed person started and thats been great! Going back and forth to the barn twice a day is tough. Nothing […]

The girls are settling in the new barn. I’m at the barn twice a day right now. My morning feeding and turn out person doesn’t start until next week and though this barn is closer to the house making the trek twice a day can be rough. In other words I’m tired as all get […]

I had to meet the vet early in the morning. So i was up before the sun. Just routine stuff like the remainder of their spring shots and micro chipping. There was a SNAFU on the chips but that will be corrected in the next couple of days. I’m getting them chipped before they move […]
