This is what met me in the driveway on my way to work recently.

The fall calving cow group is doing well, just two more left to calve. J says one looks close but the other may be awhile.

Did I tell you that I had some pears.

The weather was beautiful yesterday, perfect for a fall ride. J has been riding Brother around on the farm but this was his first official trail ride.

My sister L is looking for a new horse. Yesterday me and E went down to North Carolina to look at one she thought was promising. He was advertised as a trail horse but had been trained originally in western pleasure so L thought that with a little tuning up she could bring that back out. Unfortunately, it got off to a bad start when they had advertised the horse at 15 hands but it was more like 15.2-15.3. Sort of makes a difference when you are short and go to get on one 3 inches taller than you need.

J has been loving riding Brother so much that any endurance riding with Jessica has pretty much stopped for this year.

Today was J's dad's Birthday. He is 80 years old now. Monday, when I had gone shopping, I saw that they had fruit trees at Tractor Supply on clearance for $10 and they were 25% off at Lowes. I was thinking J was wanting some more fruit trees for when the economy collapses and we have to fend for ourselves. (not like we aren't already fending). Anyway, when I told him he said,"'Daddy has been wanting a couple of apple trees." Well, of course I couldn't get back to the store until today and they were gone from TS but guess what? Now they were 50% off at Lowes.

Around here that means cutting wood. J has piles of wood everywhere. We've been heating the house with wood for 14 years now. We wonder what the farm would look like if we didn't use all of the down trees for fuel.

Yes, we are being invaded.....by woolly worms. They are everywhere.

Kit kept me company yesterday while I did some yard work.
J and E had a good time on the 40 yard line at the Va Tech Hokie game. Sister L gave us a free pair of tickets to the game and E wanted to go so I got to stay home and get some much needed chores done.

We normally don't do a breeding soundness exam on our bulls. J is really good about checking the cows and knows pretty quickly if he is having repeat breeders. This spring however, one of his favorite bulls had a breeding related injury and had to be taken out.
