We got a call last night that our goat buyer was picking up today. A little scrambling and we were able to get the goats in the smaller field before dark.

Friday J and I attended the Hokie Harvest Sale at Virginia Tech. E is taking the marketing class and was involved with the sale, we were interested in the horses that were selling and there was Block and Bridle barbecue. Who could say no to all that.
Then J went to a local Angus sale the next day. He was very disappointed with the quality that they were selling so strike three.

I know that some of you have been anxiously awaiting a new bad picture post, so much so that a coworker tagged me in a Facebook post just to show me this one.

I guess I should clarify my addiction. It would be a "25 cent scarf addiction". I could completely stop buying them if they were more expensive.

V and E came to visit and V brought Mike with her so J and I took the lot out for the day to a cattle auction.Cattle prices are waaaay down this year so J was interested to see how these 300 bred heifers would sell. Last year they averaged $2185. This year was closer to $1425. J got a number but never used it.

Remember the bridge that we just had repaired? Looks like it is costing us more than we thought.

I am trying to be better prepared for the arts and crafts show in my sister's neighborhood this year. Last year I just sort of threw things together. It worked out but I thought I could make it more appealing to shoppers this time.
See that sign in the corner? I made it to display photos of all the activities our 4-H Horse Club was doing. Since the girls are out of 4-H and there is no longer even a club, I decided to reuse the framework for Wrangler's art.

Looks like the Summer of Brother has continued on into the Autumn of Brother.

With E off at college, Pep hasn't been getting much attention lately. E asked me yesterday if I could at least look at her to make sure she was ok. Well, of course I have been looking at her and she is ok.
