Re: Goat and horse stories, garden plans...


we got a little bit of hail (mostly driving rain and high wind) BUT less then a 1/4mile up the road -and then the next 3 or 4 miles took a beating!!! big time! trees down everywhere, trees that are standing are BARE (from the hail) the road looked like it was covered in freshly mowed grass (but it was shredded leaves, several inches deep) the hail was HUGE and up to 4-5 inches deep in spots. cows were green from all the shredded leaves. Some houses lost all their windows, lots of car damage. The paint was even *sandblasted* off some of the houses.

Woah, that's awful damage! The trees will grow their leaves back, of course, but still. Nature can be rough at times.

Update on the horses next door....

We've had enough rain that they are looking a little better. The mares and foal spent about a week out, mostly over here, which was [sign in to see URL] they ate the tops out of all the corn in the garden one night.

It looks like the neighbor may have rented the land out, as someone has been hauling off junk. Don't know what kind of folks they are yet or what will happen to the horses and dogs.

Oh no! I suppose they were desperate for nutrients, though. Will you have any corn this year?

I hope the new owner / rentee will do better by the horses.

We have replanted the corn plot. Fed the stalks to the stallion over the fence. emoticon

Re: Goat and horse stories, garden plans...


We started peppers in mid Feb (I'm NOT going to get behind this year!). I started some tomatoes and a few more peppers a few days ago. The snow is really melting fast! We'll be concentrating on picking up more deadfall and tinder off the ground and burning it; because we are in a drought here unless we get some rain.

I'm so excited to get out in the garden again and be outside alot.
