Whew!.....

Posted by Lewis White on

Had wonderful weather at Rhinebeck.  Seemed a little warmer than normal to me but I may be wrong.  We are having a colder than normal snap down here and that may be throwing me off.  Show was good.  Wonderful to see everyone and thanks to all those that stopped by the booth.  Rushed home, caught a few ZZZZs, ran out for chicken feed and dog food and have been in a frenzy of repacking & restocking for SAFF in Asheville, N.C.  Our farrier visit is this afternoon and then I'll be hitting the road again.  Mrs LB started on the...

Hitting the Road....

Posted by Lewis White on

I wanted to sneak in one more post before climbing in the truck and heading North (and slightly East) towards Rhinebeck.  The weather has finally broken.  Hallelujah!  95 degrees in October was becoming a bit depressing.  Hard to get in the fall spirit of things with sweat in your eyes.  Thanks to a couple of hours work and some wonderful folks from TN, we have a barn full of beautiful hay and I'm breathing a sigh of relief.  Been trying for months to get the hay put up but between rain, dry off, and schedule issues it hasn't happened.  Mrs...

I Haven't Smelled this Bad in a Long Time....

Yesterday we interrupted festival preparations for barn cleaning and sheep sorting.  You can say a couple of universal things about livestock.  First, if there is plenty of pasture and sunny weather.....they will gang up and relieve themselves in the barn to the point that the only description you can think of is cesspool.  The second universal thing is relating to draft horses and it's really quite simple.  Common sense you might say. They make the mess a hundred times bigger.  After we scraped and dug until we found the hallway floor mats again, the morning was mostly over and it...

Fall Shows Part 5....

Posted by Lewis White on

Time is getting short!  We are sorting & packing .....and packing and sorting.  It never fails you think you have a particular item grouped in one spot, congratulate yourself on the wonderful progress you are making and how much farther along you are this year compared to years past.  You smile, pat yourself on the back again and start to work on something else.  Then you open a bag or box thinking that it's item B and there it is....more of what you thought you finished. Of course it's packaged in the wrong size, not packaged at all or you...

Fall Shows Part 4.....

Posted by Lewis White on

We have been celebrating a couple of "good" things lately.  First, Mrs LB's brother & his wife survived hurricanes Irma & Maria.  Yes, things are difficult but they are alive, together and still have most of a roof over their heads.  We would like to request everyone's continued prayers and support for all the island residents as they attempt to rebuild their lives.  Secondly, we finally got a part for one of our machines.  One year & 10 mths wait but we are repaired, up and running.  Unfortunately, the part did not arrive in time for us to restock every...
