The Other Shoe...

...has Dropped. Now there are three sick yearlings. Xie Xie, Big Orange, and Jules T. Jones (aka Tubster, aka mini-Me) are all quite sick. It appears we may have gotten some bad grain, since we just opened some new bags, but we still don't know for sure what is going on.

We are hoping for the best, and hoping no one else gets sick.

And in the meantime, to add insult to injury, ALL the grain has been taken away from EVERYBODY.

Poor Tubster is the sickest, then Xie Xie. Xie Xie has been barfing everywhere, which the farmer says is good, because it gets the bad things out. Ok, maybe. But it isn't pretty, that's for sure.


Peaches' yearling daughter Jules, who is also known as Tubster, is very sick today. We do not know why. Lori came out in the morning and found her very ill. Please keep your fingers crossed for Tubster.

Advice for Getting Born

Hello. My name is Hopscotch, aka Wrusty Jr. I have some advice for getting born, if you are planning to do that.

My advice is: it isn't easy, but the best thing you can do is pick out a good mother, keep your head pointed downstream, and then just go with the flow. Don't fight it. And if it doesn't work out, try again next time.

Ok. Good luck.


This is my grandson Harley (aka Herron Hill's Harlequin Romance.)

The farmer thinks he is very pretty and may let him go as a buck if he goes to a nice farm.

He is BlueBelle and Filbert's big brother.


This is one of Scouty's mini-Nubian daughters, lifting her landing flaps into place.

Her name is Cleo and she has a very pretty face.
