I love archery...I used to shoot a recurve (target shooting, not hunting)--even took a course in college. My teacher was a tiny little old lady (probably 4'10" and in her 70's.....hey, that was ancient to me then) but she was one heck of a...something, can't think of a word...with all weapons. She had even been a back-up in the Olympics in pistol shooting.

We had a couple of football players (at LSU, they're BIG guys) taking the class to fulfill their academic requirements--I'll never forget the sight of this tiny women showing the guys the proper posture for shooting a bow.

Well, I'm cooking Persian food for dinner tonight. Zereshk polo, which is Basmati rice with chicken and barberries. My absolute all-time favorite food in the whole world. Even more favoriter than chocolate cake! I wish you could all come for dinner, but since you can't, I guess I'll have to eat it all! Hahahaha!
I never realized possums lived in your cold that far north. Are they sure it's not just a very large rat? LOL

Barberries? Do they end up tasting like tart raisins? We cook a lot of varieties of Indian and....I don't know what the Pakistan/Afghanistan/Persian/Punjabi area is called...but we do it.

Glad to know that. But I guess if I get to pick on your spelling, you can pick on my sleeping habits (that's a joke too...I'm gong to continue to pick on your spelling, regardless. Sometimes what ends up coming out from you is too clever to resist pointing out.)

Yes, with my small "herd," I can manage it however I want. Most all of our neighbors (the beef ranchers) calve in the early spring, February through April(ish). There's the odd one or two born later, like our little foster calf, Oliver, but most of them are spring calvings for exactly the reasons you mention. However, they don't milk their beef cows. I'm the odd one in these parts, LOL! But actually it's a good thing, because I have all the milk (when I'm milking) and use it to trade for stuff like extra hay and favors.

A friend of mine in Wisconsin is currently hunting a large possum that's been eating her chickens, in the coop! I guess it found a spot to wiggle in. Anyway, the tracks and tail prints in the snow are definitely possum, so good thing you caught yours before he started eating YOUR chickens.

When my ex and I lived in Portland (Tualatin actually) and had Ninja, my first Dobie, who was no slouch in the size department, we had a huge possum coming in our back yard eating the poop! OMG. No shooting was allowed within city limits, so the hubs finally shot him with a field tipped arrow. A gunshot would have been quieter - that possum screeched like nobody's business. And Ninja was WILD, trying to get through the glass patio door and finish off that critter. I didn't let him out, for the simple reason I wasn't sure who would win that fight. That was one large and fierce possum. (He finally dragged himself off to die in someone else's yard, I assume. Anyway, we never saw it again.)

I'm glad we don't have possums out here, but then there ARE the skunks, which do as much damage to poultry, and smell worse. Jasper's smart enough not to chase them, but he also doesn't see them as a threat, either. They don't ACT like a predator, and honestly, I think he thinks of them as cats. So it's on us to get rid of the skunks, although there are fewer than there used to be, I assume just because there's a big dog loose on the premises.

Oh, SP, I almost forgot. My first Arab, Raj, was an Egyptian (El Hilal grandson, I DO have his papers), but he was a stocky, blocky boy, and if I had to guess, I'd say he outweighed Horus by quite a bit. Horus is much lighter boned than Raj was, and I would think it would be just the opposite. Raj was almost an identical twin to Horus in color and markings, and just about the same size, except Raj was stockier. Maybe I just fed him too well.

Horus, though, used to have a REALLY beautiful long mane and tail - I have a picture of him right after he got here and his mane is flying out behind him, and his tail was flowing, long enough to touch the ground. But the trees. We have a LOT of trees, and Horus is itchy in the spring, so he rubs every part of himself on the tree trunks and branches. You can see (maybe) in that picture I posted, the spot where it looks like the middle of his mane is flopped over to the other side? Well, it's not, it's just missing right there. And he rubs his butt on the trees and breaks off most of his tail hairs right up at the top, so there's not much left. I try to go out and use the toothed shedder on him when he's shedding, to help scratch his itchies, but I can't be out there 24 hours a day, so when I leave, he goes and uses the trees, silly boy. He rubs it off faster than it can grow back.

Well, I'm cooking Persian food for dinner tonight. Zereshk polo, which is Basmati rice with chicken and barberries. My absolute all-time favorite food in the whole world. Even more favoriter than chocolate cake! I wish you could all come for dinner, but since you can't, I guess I'll have to eat it all! Hahahaha!

The kind you store under the cabinets to clean grout?

I thought you kept the toothbrush as a multipurpose tool.

Nope!

Nuthin like that there.

Blinky strobe thingys give me an ocular migraine, and then turns me sleepy from trying to recover from it. I am still thinking Git Up! I am not signing on the dotted line, yet.

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.
Oh Boy!

Too much work ciphering bloodlines for me!

I am trying to keep this tidy?

And there goes Ma all school book on us.

Teasing you Mel.

As a kid and didn't know what the barn was for? It was a blast playing in it! Working in it? Not as much fun.

I, on the other hand, bitch at Mister's driving when he is in My Bitch seat, Guz. There are two bitch seats in my truck and I have jurisdiction over both of them.

StrykersPerson 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.

Would you please go out and take a tape measure with you to measure him? Like right now? Teasing you.

With all that spunk Bubble Butt's got, he sounds like Stryker. Stryker was tall and lanky, though, and the ground was sooo far down there.

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!).

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.

I was thinking Polish right off the bat! My first horse Prinz was that strain. I have had a couple of Egyptians and they didn't look like Butterball Horus and Prinz. LOL
