melbrod !5 3 hands--he's a big boy for an Arabian. Though I guess if he's Polish that could explain it.

Close to the place where I boarded my horse as a kid was a pretty high class Arab Breeder. Every year there was a specialty Arab show using LSU facilities. My parents always let me get off school (high school) to go for a couple of days--I ran around those barns all day. Fond memories.

melbrod And I couldn't get the link you provided for the newbies' indoctrination (brainwashing?) to work. Or was it some kind of test to determine their eligibility for this most elite of threads? Perhaps an initiation rite...there will be a test this afternoon.

Seriously....post #, maybe??

Third: Two show inquiries will held at the Shelbyville city council meetings, mostly held in secret, with "witnesses" flown in from FL, TX, CO, TN, VA, OR and even Canada! Expect lots of grandstanding by potential mayoral candidate counsel members when cameras are finally allowed.

Fourth: "Charges" from the city council could be turned over to the DTMC (Doberman Talk Mod Chamber) for possible disciplinary measures. These measures could range from a public rebuke on the Forum to a lengthy WS trip or the ultimate - CT "Double Secret Probation"

The latter punishment is the most severe because the member remains on the forum, but thier personality is essentially eviserated, i.e. brain washed, so they will behave in "acceptable" manor! (ref: "A Clockwork Orange" 1971)

Not mentioned, is the public character assassination, conducted by certain DT members in collusion with the media, before these investigations are even completed!

Yeah, his feet are okay, but not those of her normal young cougar bait...

Hey Doc, I'm just gonna take a wild guess here and say Mr. AJ is not a spring chicken?
BUT if AJ is a "young gun", he might've had a rough childhood, weeding in the rice paddy, sans sandals....

Oh...my skills are great with driving the Harley.
Had my own for 15 years until it got so old no one would work on it.
1985 EVO Police Special .....awesome bike. Was an old parade bike from Delaware.
Special Cam built in for chasing the bad guys.
Will have to send some PIC's someday.
After I sold mine Scott and I went riding on his bike ....me driving..and him riding "itch" ........had to go through Skyway toll plaza and a bunch of other bikers rolled up beside us.
They laughed at Scott .....and said to one of the buddies ......"She's driving because his feet probably can't touch the ground" .......since then he has refused to ever ride on the back again.
Shoot .....I was just practicing towing someone and they ruined it for me!!!
Azz's everywhere!

ECIN Lannie - I like your thinking on when to calf - But we fell into that springer group For the main reason of keeping the calves safer - we had way to many cows to let them all stay in the barn when it got cold - snowing - or the worse - rain - fallowed by very cold temps + snow = dead cows or calf's

Yeah, he's pretty much a plush stuffed toy right now. Keeps him warm, though. That and his dancing.

Poor me grew up on store-bought milk. When I was quite small and we visited my grandfather's farm, I remember distinctly thinking that the milk tasted like a cow's breath smells. Comments?
There's always some water left in the butter, it just depends on how much of it can be squeezed out. Commercial butter uses a big press, so MOST of it is gone, but I use a wooden spoon to press my butter, so there's always a little bit left in there. I can get most all of it if I go the extra step of putting the ball of butter into a wet floursack dish towel and squeezing the shite out of it.

As to the milk tasting like the cow's breath, it shouldn't. Sometimes a cow will go into a negative energy balance (ketosis) and her breath will start smelling a bit sharp, and the milk smells pretty much the same. She's having a low-sugar episode with ketosis and feeding her high carbs and sugar will usually pull her out of it unless it's gone on for a day or three, in which case she would be very sick and need emergency care. My first cow, Bandit, had a ketotic episode once and I didn't recognize it (my first time with it), so it went on longer than it should have and I almost lost her. Luckily, my neighbor happened to suggest maybe she didn't like that new hay we'd gotten and was on a hunger strike, so he donated some bales of alfalfa to us and I gave her a couple of B-complex shots to get her appetite going, and she pulled out of it. I had to feed her a corn mix for about a month, though, to get the weight back on her, and I don't usually feed corn, but it was a matter of life and death, so I did.

Butterball? You should see him in the summer when he's fat on summer pasture! A friend of mine calls him Bubblebutt, LOL! I don't know his bloodlines because I never got his papers. He was free, so I didn't press. The lady that gave him to me said he was from Polish lines but that's all I know. He looks Egyptian to me, thus the Egyptian name (Rich wanted to name him "Horse," so we settled on "Horus," LOL!).

I think he's 15h3, but I've never measured him. But eyeballing him, I think that's right. He's athletic, though, that's for sure. Nice short back and strong legs and chest. I wish I could take videos, you should see him when he starts jumping around and farting, just to amuse himself. There doesn't even have to BE a scary bag monster in the pasture! ROFL! He's hysterical, and I just love watching him. Sometimes he comes flying into the corral from the pasture and it's muddy or snowy/icy and my heart stops, expecting him to slide right into the fence, but he always times his slides so he stops just inches away, then prances (that passage thing that dressage horses do?) away like he's the King of the World. And I guess he is, in his own mind. Eh, in mine, too.

In other news, it's 3 below zero this morning, and the breeze is making the wind chill 20 below. I am NOT looking forward to chores. That's snot-freezing temps! But gotta go get those critters some hay to eat so they can keep their furnaces going and keep warm. I'm glad I'm not milking right now, this is one of those days that make milking a miserable chore for me. It's probably not so nice for the cows, either, because I use a belly milker and the rubber inflations that go on their teats are freeeeezing by the time I get everything out there and set up, and clean up the cows.

People always say they can't understand why I want my cows to calve in the fall, rather than in the spring, when there's all that nice pasture to make good milk to raise a calf on. Well, THIS is why. In the winter, when it's this cold, I can let the calf do the milking chores for me, then by spring, when all that nice grass comes up, the calf is ready to wean and *I* get all that luscious wonderful grass-fed cream for MY OWN SELF. Yes, this is why I have cows!

As always, the above is just my personal opinion, based on my personal experiences.

Most people also don't realize how insidious the Animal Rights agenda is...(and animal welfare is NOT the same as animal rights). Groups like PETA are well known, but the Humane Society of the United States are working to do a lot of damage, too, and there are a lot of other groups out there doing a lot of damage to farmers, to pet owners, to hunters.... it makes me furious.

They basically are. And there was a book written by someone or other back when my dad was a kid "The History of Highland County" that my dad's age kids almost used as a local history textbook (one room schoolhouse and all that) which is full of family history, extensive family trees for all of the "founding families" of the area, etc. so I have that as a reference too. Family history was always a big thing around the dinner table on special occasions. I just wish I hadn't been the youngest. So many stories I only vaguely remember, and I moved out and at least 1000 miles away by about 20, so after that I only saw my folks once a year for a week or so, and I didn't get to hear those stories with an adult ear, so to speak.

Some are written down--my aunt wrote down her memories of her grandmother (so my great GMa) that are interesting. But you have to figure that each generation probably loses at least 95% of all the family stories that get told by the last generation (though they do add their own)....it's sad what gets lost forever. My mom's side has a few stories too, but she wasn't nearly the story teller that my dad was.

I do have an old family bible from my great grandmother, a piece of her furniture, and some house stuff of hers, from my mom's side (she was born in the 1860's--my great grandma, I mean.) I was named after her (and she was named after her father's FIRST wife, who died young; her mom was his second wife--I always wondered about that one. But I guess they probably all knew each other in a small community), so that makes them special (even though the piece of furniture is...well...not exactly gorgeous. But obviously handmade by someone. I think they had the marble top shipped in. It used to have an oval mirror with an ornate surround, but that didn't survive when my parent's house burned.)


My sister though, like I said, is the family historian. She remembers EVERYTHING (even all of those embarrassing stories about me from our childhood) But sometimes that trait comes in handy.

I haven't been back to that area since I was about 10, and we haven't really kept up with the folks there (family story); also this house is not where my dad actually grew up. His mom was very ill the whole time he was growing up (sleepy sickness) so he was farmed out to relatives a lot of the time. I was never actually in the old house. The country store was another matter. We used to walk down to it for our candy and soda needs when we were visiting.

And there's no farmland attached to this sale--the land my uncle got was from the other branch of the family, I think, and the old home had gone through other hands many years ago.

Anyway, gosh it's almost tempting. But with all of our computer needs, and it appears, only one old bathroom and an old kitchen, I don't know......

https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/7...94473802_zpid/

The house built in 1905, I see. The bathroom was likely added on a bit later because I know my dad pretty much grew up with an outhouse.
I can imagine myself living there. I was woke up from my dream, no acreage.

That house is awesome. It would be right up Mister's alley.
