  1. More Fog...????

    This is so odd, more fog. Low temp 35. So I guess Fall is really here. We've got leaves falling off the maple tree in the yard. So I guess break out the rakes.

    We have been working on our round pen. We rented a box scraper and that worked quite well for digging thru the hard pan. But boy do we have ROCKS!! We've picked rocks till we are blue in the face. I think we've got them down to a dull roar.

So now we have ...

  4. Rain today!!

    We are having our first "real" rain since the first week in July. One of our creeks had dried up completley. The pond with the gold fish was getting really low. I was worried that we might have to put some well water in it. Maybe now we will get one last little gowth spurt of grass before winter sets in.

    The horses look like mud pits! Their coats were so dusty and now with the added rain...can we say MUD! But they seem happy..the cool weather, none of those ...
