Tanoka sleeps with a full belly

I have been uppin the hay rations for the pony, and she seems to appreciate it. She's much more relaxed after a nice feed...

I set up the tripod for this shot, and she didnt even budge!

the process...

I still got it in me. Don't tell my director what I been up to, but it sure felt good to spend a nice long day in the trees yesterday.
These trees where blockin the wonderful view to the water, and the south. After 40 years of ownership, it was time to get the OLD VIEW BACK!

She had a great lesson....

"Island Riders"
Looks like many many horse hauls to town int he days
weeks, and years to come!

chicken butcherin...

Kenzie grabbed the camera
and took a chicken butcher movie

Tail Day

We washed, shampooed, conditioned, and cut the pony's tail today...
Up and out of the way. Trainer said, steppin on your tail, aint a good thing....
Kenzie stayed at home to catch up on rest, and home chores today, and is enjoying "horesechores". She also wants to see a chickens head get chopped off!

Butcher Day

Well, 8 of 18 remain, tomorrow, its their turn...
We chilled 8 birds in an hour and a half today, after
8 weeks of portable poultrey work!
Its seems hardly worth the effort, but the freezer will
be full, and we have 25 more chicks comin at the end of this
