Fall is starting off with a couple of new additions. First there was Tee. A nice little off the track thoroughbred that has a new life as a pleasure horse.
Then yesterday 2 white Percheron came to join the herd.
They went out today for a little while but didn’t meet the pasture boss Gypsy yet. The meeting is scheduled for 7am tomorrow morning.
My sister drew a picture showing our bench down in the apple orchard. What a wonderful job, I think we may be looking at our new label design.
It’s too late for the maple syrup jars for 2014 but maybe next year.
The building of a Sugar Shack is now a funded project thanks to kickstarter.com/ The actual building won’t happen until after The Fryeburg Fair but hopefully completed before the snow flies.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this project
Funny how you know the instant you hear someone at your door at 6am…”Ahh I think you have a cow out”. “Thank you”, I reply as I scratch around the floor for my socks and boots before I fly down the road in my truck. 150 acres and they choose to run down the road when they get out, what’s up with that?
Ended up only being Bob, he’s such a bad boy I was able to hitch him to the truck and run him back up to the house without any trouble. Bad bad boy
Although I saw one last weekend over at Nanna’s and Papa’s it wasn’t until this morning I’ve seen one here this year-hummingbird. Yeah, what timing as I just filled and placed their feeder back out on the porch for the season.
From what I read these little buggers do migrate a great distance to get here. They come mainly from Central America or Mexico. I’m honored they choose to stop in at the East Mosquitoville Farm.
