Daughter Gets Good Report

Tara got an all clear report on her fight against bladder cancer.  Of course, as some of you know, this type of cancer can and does come back, so in 3 months she will go back for a check up and this will occur for a long time.

Thanks for all the prayers.

Texas has been under severe drought conditions for several years now and this has taken a toll on my yard and plants, so I am happy to report that as I type, they are installing a sprinkler system in my yard.  This is no small feat, my yard is about 2 acres.  But soon we can plant new grass and replace lost shrubs, etc.

I am still working on craft house, got a tv but don’t have hook up and hoping to get internet service soon.  I can watch a dvd and that helps when you working in there.

I am hoping to have a new design on my blog soon and get back to regular posting and visiting my old and new friends.

Hope you will try to check in and say hello often and I will do the same.

Horses and A Horse Trailer


Never a dull moment at the Bar H, last week Miss Lily, one of my new horses, cut a large gash in her shoulder.  Roy was at work, of course, and I had no horse trailer.  Finally, a very nice neighbor came after Roy got home and we loaded all three horses in his trailer and took them to the vet.

What you need to know about the horses is that none of them are broken, so this was a real rodeo.

Two of them are female and one is a stud…..boy he was a hand full.

His name is Chico, two ladies are Miss Lily and Anna.

Mr. Chico has  split hoof, Miss Lily a cut and we are hoping Anna is expecting a little Chico.

We spent one day driving to AR to look at what was described as a used but the greatest trailer….well he lied, so the way home we checked out a new one in Mt. Pleasant, but they were closed.

Roy decided that this one was the very best, so the next day, we took another all day road trip to buy this wonderful trailer…..it is a great trailer.

Now we can haul our horses home when they are ready to leave vet.  Can’t wait to see this vet bill!



Miss Lily




The man….King Chico    this is one of the prettiest Apps I have ever seen. He loves the pond.





We Love our horses.

Well, finally, all I need is my bathroom hooked up and we are basically finished with it.  I have moved in all my craft stuff and my dishes, etc. and I have been working our there for over 2 weeks.

It is wonderful to be able to work a while and then go back in nice clean house and leave unfinished work right where it is.


They were still finishing painting…..painter on porch!  We have planted a few more plants, but with no rain and the terrible heat, I hesitate to plant much.  The house is 36x24, just one big room, but there is a restroom in the corner with a screen.  When I am a little more organized, I will show the inside.

I would also like to share some of my animals with you all.

We have seven dogs,  3 are livestock guard dogs and 4 are house dogs.  There 4 anatolian shepherds, one part chow, a boxer and a Boston Terrier.IMG_2034

This is Kefer, an anatolian…….he is a house dog.


This is Hope, she is a house dog.


This is Fritz, our oldest and he has been with us since 2002.  He sleeps a lot. I can’t find a picture of Dozer, the Boston Terrier,,,,,,will show him later.

I know I haven’t posted in a while and people stop coming when you don’t post, but sometimes we just post for ourselves…..guess that is what I am doing today.

  1. There is a lot going on…..first and foremost, my craft house 36x24 is finally up and going.  I will post pictures Monday…..we are in Galveston now acting as docents for the Historical Home Tour….much fun.

Well, back to the Bar H,  we have bought two new dogs to learn from Mary how to guard the goats.  Both are Anatolian Shepherds, one is registered, but they are very different in appearance.  Soli the cream one is now three months old and Ally (Alafair) is now 8 months old.


We have also purchased a trailer and our young Hispanic helper and he will be moving on our property very soon….great help for me when Roy is gone every other 2 weeks.

Next addition to our growing family is a horse….her name is Anna Maria and she is a Pinto and will soon be on her way to live with the trainer for about 90+days, to return home ready to ride.  I am anxious to get her back and she hasn’t left yet

We have been working in the pasture, we lost a lot of trees due to drought and they have to be cut down, cut up, stacked and burned.

So between feeding dogs, cats, horse and luckily, Roy does most of the cooking, trying to keep the house clean, I haven’t been too busy.!!!!! but what the heck, it keeps you young and out of trouble.

PS We also have a Tub Garden on our patio……See you soon, Love,
