Lannie , i have not much of a eye for horses , but yours is very Pretty!

In Florida it is so hot that they never develop much of a coat. I have seen pics of ones that were local and moved far North to better pastures and were really unrecognizable with the thicker coats.

I know you probably didn't think it was, but this was hilarious and had me chuckling (and praying Mocha never gets close to a skunk)

Question:
"Butter is 100% fat"? I wonder if some store bought brands have added water somehow? Because I know that some brands I've gotten before sure pop and splatter when they're melting.

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?




And even if SP gets a talking equidae, I doubt what he tells the judge would be considered acceptable evidence.

TN - Know you wipe that dang smile off your face - Your a bad boy for laughing !

Story time ! When Kadin was a pup - the first fall here - it was getting into fall and woolly worms were everywhere - he had that puppy curiosity going on and would be smelling them - taking hid paw and moving them around . One day I had let him out under supervision and watched him go after one - I told him to leave it alone ! And walked over to him , which was a bad idea as you all know - they will grab there new prize and take off ! Well he did and ate it ! Then in seconds he was gaging and drooling very heavily . Wife was hitting the panic button - to tell the truth - I was a little worried too , So made a call to the vets office and told the gal what had happened - she was laughing and said Kadin will be fine , The things that make a wooly worm wooly stuck to Kadin's tongue and the insides of his mouth - that was what was making him drool , said it might take hours before he quits ! He finally got over his encounter with the wooly , lol BTW The vet gal said they had got boats loads of call the same day about other dogs and woolies

Today - he will still check one out walking across the patio , but that's it - he hasn't forgot

Growing up MEL - we had beef heifers and raised pigs...and I only drank white milk on cereal.
- loved chocolate milk though

As soon as spring comes, cows that stayed in the barn all winter...got to feed on fresh grass.
- over the cold months, it was all bailed hay, and grain & corn mix

So the 100% change in cow spring diet, overnight...within a week, the store milk tasted & smelled a bit like "rancid milk, fresh grass and weeds thrown in".
- could literally smell what the cows started to eat, and resembled the grossness of a cow pie
- few weeks later, the milk odor started to decrease / as cows diet, normalized

No SD & 10 others here - Beau don't know what COW ASS, smells or taste like !!
- I needed to say that, to defuse the later beatings LOL

It's funny....my great-grandparents had a farm, and we visited pretty often. They kept store-bought milk for us for visits, but they drank "straight from the cow" milk. My great-grandma was VERY clear that we were NEVER allowed to drink the unpasteurized milk. She was really worried we'd get sick because we weren't used to it...we got SO many warnings...DON'T DRINK THE MILK IN THE GLASS JAR!!! It brings back so many good memories of visiting up on the farm, chasing the barn cats, watching cows being milked...I loved it up there. That way of life is really disappearing.

For a while, we had this really great little co-op in town, and they carried grass-fed milk from a local dairy. I'm not a big milk drinker (though I LOVE other dairy products!), but my husband LOVES milk. We'd get that milk in glass jugs, and there was this great cream seal on the top that you shook into the milk. He said you could always taste a difference in the different seasons, because the cows were eating different things. He loved that milk so much. The co-op closed, though and we can't get it anymore

Papa (grandfather) had a farm in the mountains of VA--Highland County. I think we're related to everyone in that county, because the area was settled in the 1750's, more or less, and the same folks have been there ever since. But my dad's brother's kids got the farmland. Dad went off to school, got a master's in Chemistry and worked for EXXON as a chemical engineer, which meant we grew up in Louisiana.

Fond memories though--farming a bit primitive, maybe a generation behind, but running around it was so interesting for me, a suburban kid. My dad grew up there in the 30's, and between that childhood and the old farm, I could see where my father's ability to make everything from practically nothing--a handsaw, hammer, a few bits of wood and some wire--came from.

Oh, and MC---we drank the unpasteurized milk, but my grandfather, when he died at 84, had evidence of old infections of tuberculosis in his lungs (that's not what killed him), which could come from unpasteurized milk back in the days when they didn't check their cows for it. We all had to be tested, I remember. (Again, I was young and just vaguely remember the testing--a pinpricky thing on my arm which was supposed to swell if I'd picked up the germ). We were all clear, but....I guess it's just as well you didn't get to drink the fresh milk.

You guys got me thinking, so I looked up my dad's home town--Doe Hill, VA.

The house he was born in is for sale! As well as the old country store next door that my grandfather co-owned!!

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.

What a cool looking house Mel ! Love it ! You could probably convert one of the bedrooms to a Master with a Master bath - maybe what ? 10 to 15 grand , all depending on which imported tile you use ! Really just a small fix ! And the Store !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You could reopen it - Maybe call it Drucker's ! I think you need to check into this a little more

You know, Ken, I don't know why that family farm didn't get passed down...by the time I was old enough to know anything, the "kids" that it would have been passed down to were my grandparents and their siblings, and then my dad...and they were long grown up. And now, of course, I see all the stories about how hard it is to make any kind of living as a farmer on the kinds of farm my great-grandparents had....it makes me sad that it's no longer possible to live that kind of life, or at least to do it easily. I have a few friends that farm (more Dobe people!) and it's so hard to hear how difficult it is - a dairy farmer, a cattle farmer - it's just really rough, with the increasing (false) messaging out there that somehow it's "healthier" to be vegetarian, that farming is bad for the environment...all of that. I have nothing against vegetarians, but there is a lot of misleading information out there that simply is not correct. We need farms, badly. We especially need farms that rotate crops, and we need animals that help fertilize the soil. But don't get me started - I get myself really worked up!

Anyway, on the kitty topic...yes! They have names Matilda and Augustus (he'll be known as Gus Gus ). They come home the weekend of Jan 25, so we have a ways to go. We're pretty excited, though - been buying some kitty stuff!

If you're interested - this is their baby picture from a while back. Gus Gus on the left, Matilda in the middle. https://www.instagram.com/p/B3X0y1lH8Ov/

Cute, cute. Now you've almost got me wishing for kittens in addition to puppies. But Trip finds it tough to share our time with HDD alone, so adding other critters...probably not good.

You know, I almost got to the point where I was thinking that the old store could be set up to be a computer haven/hangout for the son (and me, occasionally).

Oh man, I would so not fit in there. From what my sister said a while ago, the folks there (you know, the ones who have been there since revolutionary times) are still back in that time period and rather.....clannish?? I'm not sure us city folks could quite hack it.

Geez....I really am intrigued. I wonder....

AND MC - when do you get your new kitties ? any names picked out yet ?

I just HATE the myth that it's good for the planet...I don't love huge feedlots and it's not good to plant the same crop over and over and over and over...but real farming, with rotating crops, and with animals fertilizing the ground....argh! There was a great article shared by Protect the Harvest that I can't dig up anymore. (If you're on Facebook, I recommend following them...I think you can also sign up for their newsletter if you aren't on FB - really good info!).

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.

Mel - I went back and looked that house over better - Boy I don't know , I did not see any vents in any of the floors for heat , A/C - Seen one gas heater built into the wall - and if you look at the outside - you will see what looks like a 40 gallon LP tank - I seen NO A/C outside either . The I noticed the wires going into the house - I bet that house has only a 100 amp service in it and wonder when there was any updates on wiring . I also bet that house is sitting on rocks = no foundation - notice how low the house sits by the grass = I seen no blocks . Tin roof looks like it was put over the old shingles or what ever - it don't appear to lay right + that tin is old ! They did not use full sheets from top to bottom - they made work with what they had - I guess - Thinking about - for only 219 . 2800 hundred feet + a 3,000 store??? I'm thinking there is some major work that needs to be done - how knows - go look at it - you may get it for 175 - 185 ! But it may cost a 100 grand to fix it like you want it .

Oh yeah.....and in that area, who knows who you could get to work on the thing....I think the workers would almost have to live there while they were fixing it up. And the shipping. I mean the whole COUNTY only has about 2,000 people. And the property has been for sale for almost 2 years!!

Just those old family ties...Daddy was so full stories of various ancestors and their doings. I was so young, though....I have no idea who was who and how they were related. My sister is older and is keeper of the family genealogy I wouldn't know anybody or anything.

And we're quite settled here (in Colorado for almost 35 years now) and have needs they couldn't meet.

It is a pretty house though, isn't it? Love the woodwork and trim inside---in the more presentable areas.

But did you see that thing that looks like it might be a bathroom (apparently the only one in the house, mind you)? My dad grew up with an outhouse. I remember the house we used to visit (similar age, down the road) had a sort of bathroom tacked onto an outer wall that was referred to as new (back in the 1960's). So who knows when the one in the picture was added---septic tank, I'm sure, and in that rocky soil. UGH...

And that bedroom with the weird walls and strangish ceiling. The paneled exercise room. Not quite built to the same standard. Those may be add-ons too.

About being built right on the ground though; I can see latticework on the left of the porch front side of house, so at least part of it might be above ground. Probably built on solid rock too, if I remember how scruffy the farm fields were around. LOL All that exterior wood to keep painted.

I remember the old store with holes in the floor, and seeing the ground a few feet below when I looked through the holes. At that price, it's probably still original floors even now.

Looks like a money hole for sure.

Oh well.

After that assessment a offer of 90,000 $ would be a good start.
I like older houses! The smell of a older frame house does make me happy!
You have to be very handy if you want to own one!

The picture is him standing in front of our garage, keeping out of the wind.

I have some nice action pictures of him on my other computer if I can gather the courage to go down there (it's freezing in the basement) to post them for you one of these days.
Horus is a butterball! My first Arab had his body type.

How tall is he?

What bloodline is he?

He's got beautiful markings.

And, he's looking all innocent in that photo.

He didn't have nothing to do with no gate crashing.

Francis wouldn't be able to give a statement or take the witness stand, either.
