Yet another piece of tin blew up on the roof of the old barn.

I've had time to ride Otoelene but J hasn't been on Brother in about 3 weeks. Sunday was so nice it would have been a shame to let it pass without a ride.

Our new little still no name horse is getting better about being caught. She usually comes up to me now and if trying to avoid me just walks away instead of throwing her tail over her back and taking off.
She has been such a sweet heart, not really jumpy or spooky.
As for a name, the breeder usually has a theme for each foal crop. This year 2 were born on tax day so they were named Otoe's Revenue and Otoe's Income. I'm thinking for her registered name to stick with the theme and maybe go for Otoe's Asset. As for a barn name E is voting for Gretchen or Gretel. I like Glitter but J said if he ended up wanting to ride her he didn't really want to be calling her Glitter. So you can see we are still working on it.

I know where there is a trampoline for sale, cheap. And no, this is not a "Bad For Sale Picture."

This one almost defies words, but I will try.
Slight moth damage, who are they trying to fool. It looks more like a Tasmanian Devil got a hold of it than a moth did. And that is a very unfortunate stain behind the dog that may or may not be still living.
This one is just too fun.

Sister C and I attended the Cherokee Heights Arts Festival last weekend. I was peddling my stock pile of Wrangler paintings and C had some fascinating hand painted eggs she was testing out on the public. But the major focus was visiting sister A. We had a great visit but a disappointing sale.
And we got a visit from Santa. He was talking about his busy schedule and looking forward to a rest on December 25th.
There was a man interviewing the participants and he suckered me into talking to him. I'm at 13:20.

As promised, we have a new addition to the farm. We bought Otoelene's full sister Monday. We would have brought her home sooner but she wasn't halter broke and they had a little trouble catching her.

We lost Emma this weekend from a sudden illness. We don't know how old she was but this was her home for almost 10 years. I had almost fallen into the trap of getting the children a puppy for Christmas. But at the last minute I came to my senses and decided to just wait. The right dog would come along I thought.
She was a beautiful dog inside and out.
She was a perfect angel whenever I took her to career day.
She was the official greeter for anything that showed up on a trailer.
She didn't fetch or herd but she was a terrific doorbell and she never dug a hole or chewed on anything she wasn't suppose to.
She played with everyone.
When Bumble and Bea showed up she was an instant friend.
Even when they were triple her size she was still the boss.
We have talked a little bit about getting another dog.
But J said, "you only get one good one."
