I have met a lot of neighbors today and a friendly pot belly pig who wanted to eat my socks and a young german sheperd that bit my arm that I used my forearm on his windpipe and he let go and dropped by my side....looking like "what the he!! just happened here? the owners apologized to me and then asked me to show them where to do that....guess he has been trying to bite them too and he is on last legs with owners. I showed them, but I said he needed more thorough training than just that.
Good thing I had my coat on cuz he left marks on my arm. its been long day...just got home and I heard my dogs bark, my 70 yr old neighbor karen had them both...my babies r home safe and sound. I have had neighbors calling me with sightings of them....I like the neighborhood! now for a nap as I didn't get much sleep last two nights....harry feels better today too...win win situation.

Oh, thank goodness! wavy I have worried about those doxies all day! Your neighbors are lucky you understand big dogs......I just read a report on a police mare being killed by a bunch of coyotes near her own barn up north.
If there are coyotes that will do that, my little minis wouldn't stand a chance. My donkey guards Trinket from the dogs next door, I guess he would do the same for coyotes. I lock them in the barn at night, but that mare was killed in the daylight. Scary. We lost a cat to a fox or coyote a couple of years ago.

Nothing but snow flurries here today, no snow. :dance: Hope it stays that way. Our snow blower likes living in the garage with nothing to do.

BEECH
We need updates!

I know I was worried too! you need a big dog, usually the coyotes stay away when u have a big dog. I was hiking logroads today where they had been sighted...I had my pistol with me, but eerie in those trees, very quiet except when the breeze rustled thru the dead oak leaves on the branches....
After wussie and baby beans got loved on and put in safe location....we came in and dozed on and off....hubby says he will work on dogpen weds. but way he is coughing, I don't know....we will wire the bottom edges so there won't be anymore digging under, that I know. I do not want to go thru this again. wed is spose to be 70 degrees, so tomorrow I clean house and wed we do dog run....shoot I hurt everywhere walking hills and trails and creeks....I got my car on a very rutted skinny road along the lake in the dark..could still just see the water, scared me bad! I finally found a spot wide enuf to crank it around..my car doesn't have power steering, bought it new in 05 and didn't come with it....so .....u turn it hard....I showed harry where the road was and he was amazed I went down it, but I didn't know it was at the lakes edge .....holy moly...nope don't wanna do that again at all.
Sweet dreams y'all
Stay safe any in path of this storm...

I'm guessing BEECH is hunkered down in double flannels, wool socks, couple of down quilts, hot soup and tea, good book or TV.......and warm fire.  Praying her horse is fine and she can manage that O K............it sounds like he has a nice barn & shelter.


She'll check in after storm to give us the scoop & the real deal.  On the news here it sounds like a REAL DANDY.

God bless, prayers for ALL.

CB, remind Harry that one of the best parts of retirement is being able to be home when you're sick, and stay there until you feel better.

This is easiest meatloaf you will ever make. So much flavor too!!!

heart emoticon STUFFING MEATLOAF heart emoticon

1 package Stove Top Stuffing mix, dry
1 c. warm water
1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 package onion soup mix

Preheat oven 350°. Coat inside of bundt pan with cooking spray.
Place warm water, onion soup mix and dry stuffing mix in a bowl. Mix well. Let sit for 5 minutes to allow bread time to absorb water.
Add eggs and ground beef. Mix well. Best to get it blended by using your hands and incorporating it all together.
Place evenly into bundt pan. You can also put into muffin tins to make individual loafs.
Bake 1 hour or until no longer pink inside.
Remove and allow to rest 5 minutes before cutting into.

I am drooling over RICK' s recipe and your weather!!! Drool I would like a serving of each.... Very Happy
I saw a photo PAM L posted on Facebook showing her car half dug out from under at least a foot of snow, so I guess she is okay.


No snow here, but it was very cold and windy last night, windchills around 10°. The two smelly chickens are back in my bathtub. The horses wore their blankets last night, but it isn't windy tonight, so they are back to hair only. Areion does not like the back leg straps touching her. She pitched a fit, bucking and running, the first time she wore a new to her blanket this year. Last night she refused to move at all until I took the straps off. She has outgrown her old blanket and we switched her to Kazi's bigger one. I guess we will get Areion a different blanket soon without those leg straps. She was not a happy horse.

No lesson today, the cold was pretty miserable, but I decided to let the hip joint heal for another week anyway before riding again.

Sure hope everyone is warm and safe!!

I am glad you missed out on all that snow, my daughter is moving to a small rural town called Haiseville north Carolina that is where we went on our road trip it is about 10 miles from the Georgia border, they have a lot of interesting places to see, there is a fort there and a Cherokee village, plus lots of lakes, they are surrounded by 4 lakes and lots of mountain peaks, I really want to go there in late spring to see all the trees and flowers in bloom, I may just go there to live, it is only a 8 hour drive from here where I live now so I can still see the grandkids, I just need to do research to find a doctor, but am getting a little excited thinking about it, my daughter is in seventh heaven acting like a school girl I am happy for her she already has her priorities in order it is inexpensive to live there and there are lots of open vegetable markets. The rent is doable I just don't want to interfere with her life time will tell

I'm here, I'm here! A little more bowed from shoveling, but still essentially upright and taking nourishment.  Tuesday's storm was a long and wild one. By 9 a.m. we had at least 10 inches of snow with more steadily pouring down and the wind roaring, so I dreaded the trip out to the barn, where I could see that the drifts along the way would come up to my hips. But I made it out there four times that day, never lost power, and lived to rev up the snowblower for the big cleanup on Wednesday. While I was doing that, my neighbor, bless his heart, came by on his front-end loader to clean up both my driveways. We got somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 inches then -- and it snowed again today, all day, to add another six or so.  Tomorrow's challenge will be to see if the wire with which I mended the snowblower holds, and then, after snowblowing paths again, shovel out the horse's door and clear a track to the manure pile -- then tackle the stall muck.  Poor horse! Shoveling out from under him is coming last.  More snow forecast for Monday... And that kindly neighbor had a long-delayed hernia operation yesterday, so I'll be on my own.  affraid

 But,  Graymare, you were right! There were times when I was just hunkered down inside, cozy and content as can be next to a  warm wood fire with the kettle humming. There's actually a lot to be said for a peaceful day like that. study study

 Help, please, anyone, for a horse problem! This winter Shanti has taken to splashing the water out of his heated bucket. Before the weather got consistently cold, I was able to sop  it up off the floor with shavings, but now it freezes as fast as it falls, to the point where it's created an impenetrable slippery mound about four inches high and four feet in diameter. Thinking that maybe he didn't like the heated bucket, I tried going back, one night, to an unheated one, and it froze absolutely solid. I've read that such splashing can be an indication of problems with teeth or swallowing, or may just represent boredom. But he's otherwise eating well and behaving like his usual sassy self. Never had this happen before. He's 24 and I've had him for 18 years. Unless the weather is horrible, he's usually free to go in and out at will to a fenced-in area of an acre or more. Any suggestions??   shrug shrug

If ur snowblower is up to it make paths in the outside and turn him loose. maybe just shut him up at night. I think he is bored. hang some milk jugs up so he can nose them but not get tangled in the tie. a horse likes to push things around with their nose. the snow shouldn't hurt him if he's in good health or the cold, but if it rains and is cold then keep him in. we had horses in alaska where it got very very cold...and gave horses free movement all the time. I was always taking warm water out to them...it was a pain..and we would have huge blocks of ice all over that we got out of tubs...I would drag the tub in the entry to thaw and give them water in another one...I remember it being a pain. what we do for our 4 legged babies. I was pg with jaemi, my second, and brought her home from hospital when it was 70 below....ouch. make sure his poop isn't too dry, sometimes they don't drink much when its cold, maybe a lil oil in some grain will keep him moist..I'm afraid to give salt too much when its cold, cuz they just won't take in more water sometimes in the cold no matter what.
There I told u everything u already knew, didn't I? lol they always worry us..that's what we do over our animals. maybe some others will have some ideas.

It was nice here today, almost 50 and sunny. harry had doc appt and he still has bronchitis...on one side his lung is congested....I have a code in my node...so we r both miserable....ugh...
