Peta auto stomp on their heads the way the horses are treated.

I hear ya Al. With the weather swinging from one extreme to the other so long this year we've been "gonna do" a bunch but it took 5 times longer than it should have. We haven't finished a quarter of what we'd hoped to.... But we'll get there. Hopefully we'll have some cooler days.

Once we finish fencing the pasture I'll turn the girls out and take a picture. Long grass (thought we had to pull a deer tick off me when I was tromping through it putting up markers.... EW! I do not like ticks! I have one rare disease, that's more than enough!). Only one tree, it was sheep pasture before, but we'll put in a mix of windbreaks and shade trees, and we'll get up a pasture shelter next summer....

My husband's sisters have a good amount of land. Their houses look like they belong in some magazine. I like stuff you can plant and ignore and it looks pretty. Do a little spring and fall cleaning, and you're done. Why do I need a lawnmower? I have horses. I'm coveting goats. I have brush that needs clearing. I'd much rather take my "lawnmower" out on a leash and sit in a camp chair with a cool glass of tea and look at my pretty land.

I'm the queen of work smarter, not harder....

Canudigit, my mustangs are used to cold though I have to say the cold is a little longer and colder here. But the heat and humidity Ruby thinks is the pits. There's one nice big shade tree in the pasture, we didn't get trees planted in the spring, but I'll be getting some planted in the fall...

'course I think they'd trade today's wind for yesterday's heat. They're not enjoying the flapping at all...

Cool! Someone in the Southeast who would rather be in Michigan! Please tell everyone here on C-D, but they'll still never believe you, lol.

idw2s,

We used to have some 4-H goats and our fence lines never looked better, like they were professionally trimmed with a weed eater every day of the year. Goats won't graze in the field, though, they are picky and only like tall weeds. For brush in the field, you need some sheep. There you go--goats, sheep, horses--a regular hobby farm!

Awe....we've had so much rain, I think we've added a few hundred lakes to our state, and are bringing up the water levels in our bigger ones!
