Creating Waves of Awareness

Good Grief -- college graduations, granddaughter vacationing with us, Hubby's 60th B-day celebration with family coming in from all over the country .... how Blessed we are!  I had the 'feeling' that this summer was to be focused on family and home rather than 'work'. And its proven that my intuitions were correct. Have spent some time setting up and running a monthly Equine Agility Play Day and that has been fun! It's been a few years since we've held many activities here on the farm and now we're ready again. Needed those few years to recupe from some nasty events occurring that culminated in our asking all our boarders to leave. I think after 45 years of having "Open Door" policy in our home and on our farm that Hubby and I needed the last 3 years to simply "be" with little to no outside interests. We've since completely opened up all the paddocks to make a large 5 acre turnout for just our guys and the ponies and horses love it. They have the full use of all the paddock sheds as they please. Its funny, tho, that the 3 big guys choose, instead of standing in individual sheds, to cram their big bodies into just one shed. The ponies do the same with another favorite shed while the donkey and the goat mainly share the upper barn. But they do enjoy having the choices of what shed or barn to utilize. Of course, at the first drop of rain, they're all scattering to the nearest one without any particulars. Such wimps!  *LOL* 


We are now all rather refreshed. Tamilyn has taken over Misty's role as Herd Alpha Mare and takes her position quite seriously!  She's still learning how to split her attention when part of the herd is way down back while others are up at the main area. But she doesn't get quite as upset when everyone is split up that way. She's turned into quite the protector for our mini donkey, Amahl and will help rid him of the pesky goat at times. The hierarchy of the herd has settled nicely with the absence of Misty and Dorian. They figured things out but in a surprising way to us!  Our Mustang, Cheyenne, is the bottom of the pecking order!  I would have thought, with her background in the feral herd in Nevada, that she would have been at least 2nd 'in command' but Diego, our gelding took up that spot. And while they all form one herd, the ponies definitely hang out with themselves rather than with the horses. They, too, have their own hierarchy set up among the 3 of them with little Crackers leading up from behind. He's definitely the mischief maker! Such fun -- he's the practical joker and loves, loves, loves to "play". His role in therapy sessions is to help teach the humans how to "play" and laugh and ... "lighten up!"  :)  Some photos from a Play Day and general farm life:

Those beautiful chickens. What a wide variety. Lovely scrumptious salad fixins.

Couple more photos of 'the farm family' ...

Breakfast time -- chickens and kitties sharing. Why the chickens like cat food more than their own, I have NO idea! I half suspect the chx. will begin to start purring, tho, soon. *grin*

The last photo is of what these guys eat -- all live foods. Fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, etc.  From horses to Guinea Hens -- they all get salads.  (So do my husband and I -- we kinda ALL eat the same things!)

Very good. The weather across the nation has been fluctuating. The hottest temperatures ever on record. We've had in the 100's for over a month. This has never ever happened. The globe heating up and global warming getting worse. Governments must act and people need to be educated and take steps to move toward sustainable living. You're an example for us all. Love, Debby

Chickens and eggs ... well, which do you want first? *GRIN*   (sorry, that was b.a.d.)  We fluctuate between drought and floods here. We were VERY wet the beginning of the season, dried out for a bit, and then the last two days or so had torrential downpours that flooded things.  Oh well -- it is what it is!  I'll post some more photos if you'd like. I love to share them!  :)

Thank you for this true blog. It reminds me of our annual school report, "What I did during my summer vacation!" Most lovely photos. I can't hardly choose a favorite one from these colorful farm images. Where are the chickens and the eggs? Everyone looks quite healthy. Did you have a summer of drought or flooding?
