We get lots of wasps and hornets that love to build nests in the equipment also. Nasty little things.
We had some wicked winds today. The only good thing was that it was for the most part in the upper 20's and not down in the single digits. That wind can get pretty darn nasty when it is cold and then of course it did decide that it was going to snow also. We didn't get much of that though.
Hope you have a great week.

On another note. I saw on the news the other week that every one's electric bill had gone up and people were saying that their bills had doubled. I thought to myself, this can not be good. I forgot all about hearing it on the news until I got my bill today. OMG!!! We wonder why we are all going to the poor house, now I know! It won't be long and we will have to pay for the air we breath.
I sometimes agree with the hubby and we should sell everything we have, buy a camper and become nomads! As the price of things go up, the more I agree with him! Take our guns and run and get lost in the countryside. Sorry, but it is one of those days where I just want to take off someone's head!
We work our a........ off and what do most of us get in return, not a damn thing but more headaches! If one thing goes wrong, it seems lots more things seem to follow. I am the one that usually takes things and just goes with the flow and let things come as they may and do the best I can with what I have. Sometimes though you just get plain tired of trying and throw your hands up in the air and say F----- it! Excuse my french. I think I have ranted enough. I do realize that there are lots of people that are so much worse off than I ever thought of being. I am complaining because I want to and I can. I figure this blog is for me and if I want to complain I can.
Now that my complaining is done. I want to say, thank you for putting up with my ranting if you read this. I sure hope you are having a better day than me and don't let my ranting bother you. Tomorrow is always a new day!

Hard to believe that the steers will be a year old in just a few months. They seem to be growing a lot slower. It is because they are more of a beef steer than a dairy animal. We have found that if you feed and bring them up a certain way, that no matter the breed, they usually yield pretty much the same. We have found so far, that we have liked all our beef if we do the same routine no matter what breed we raise for beef.
Hope everyone is braving the winter well. Have a wonderful day.

Not much going on at the farm. The ponies are adjusting with the other horses just great! The steers are growing but slowly.

Not much else is going on, I spend most of my time in the barn now weaving. I found a place that I can put my weaving projects at for 50 dollars a month. I am going to do a web site and get new business cards made. The first set I didn't put what I can weave on them, this time I am going to put a list of things that I can weave on the back of them. I want to find a way to make cards to put on the projects, so that I can tell the customer how to take care of the fabric; but yet put my weaving logo on the front of the card also.
Hope you are having a great week. Just think one more day and it is Friday, to those of you who have a week that Friday is a big deal. Which for me there is no Friday, just another day.

I will try to catch up with everyone for the next couple of days and hopefully keep up with you. I hope everyone is healthy and doing well.

It was pretty darn cold here this morning. A balmy -10 degrees, it is supposed to get to a whole 20 degrees today which is better than what we started out with. This has been a pretty darn weird winter so far, and it doesn't bode well for the rest of the winter! We have around 9 inches on the ground so far, and we are supposed to get some freezing rain starting tomorrow night into Monday.
Hope you are staying warm if you live in a state that has snowy, cold, winters.
