September 13 2010

There hasn't been much happening around here other than the normal items needed accomplishing on a farm. I'm impatiently waiting for the return of my lawn tractor so I can get the yard ( AKA:  the jungle ) mowed. The grass is close to a foot tall by now. The hens are happily laying small to medium sized eggs - I get 4 one day and 3 the next. Considering there are 5 hens laying- that's not bad !

Things Are going to be picking up here though..... I have a fencer coming tomorrow ( Tuesday) to see what I want done and then to work up a price. I HOPE its not going to be a lot - but what ever the price- it will be worth the expense to keep my horses safe.

Then this coming Friday, I have an appointment with a company that does vinyl siding. I want to get the top part on the front of the barn redone..... Here's what it looks like now.
I would like to have the top replaced with a brick or dark red color in vinyl and then a new over-head door there too. Get some good paint in a dark blue and paint the trim that color. It'll look nice, I Hope  :)

Soon I want to contact PP&L about moving the electric box on To the house and from the sorry looking pole it is on now.  Its not safe and we want the wires from the corner pole to come underground to the house. I see this as being much more safe.
Sadie has been growing and filling out like mad. She is just about all grown up by now as she's a little over one year old. She's been a great friend - but not a barn buddy like Petey used to be. She's allergic to shavings and sawdust;  Sooooooooooooooo she won't be up at the barn very often.

Evie's leg is healing up well.  Here is a recent photo of it:

It is still inflamed but is looking SO much better !

Glenn has been doing fine since his bout in the hospital, but he gets tired faster it seems now. His new job is hectic but he says he likes working there. I just wish there was a financial way he could retire soon ! 

More news on farm improvements and pictures to come - stay tuned.

  1. Poor Sadie, I hadn't realized that she was allergic to the shavings. What a bummer for a happy little pup.
    The barn will look great in the red/brick and blue. The new fence will be great.

  2. Sadly enough, Sadie has to be a 'city' dog and stay away from the barn or she ends up in itchy hives
