Its only Tuesday!

Very neat moth the son found when he was covering plants from the frost.

Just another day and school for both the son and I.  Other than that, not much is new here on the farm.  The ponies are doing good.  The mule likes to be very "mule-ish" towards the Shetland.  We were keeping them in the same stall and the mule was kicking the holy heck out of the other pony. So, we ended up having to separate them during feeding time.

Fall is here, the leaves are starting to turn colors.  Cool weather has arrived, but still pretty darn nice.  It is supposed to get up in the low 70's this week.   We had a couple of frost advisories this past week, that is why the son was covering plants!

Hope you are having a great week.

Frost? Yikes. It just turned Autumn on the calendar anyway.
Hubby made that dump wagon from an old Datsun pick up bed. Took everything off. Shocks, breaks etc. Then put a dump thingy on it. I use it everywhere. Especially when we are calving heifers. I clean the 15,000 sq ft calving barn every day!

Ya we had our first frost last wednesday, but not enough to kill the flies, just enough to be cool when I do chores.
It too here is just another day, all days are like that so much so I dont even always know what day it is

No frost here yet, it's raining but I think the high country might get a little white.
Dang li'l mule!
