I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to see the white stuff falling from the sky! It just makes my heart sing. The two things I miss the most about Michigan are The Lake and the snow. Both make me so happy when ever I see them. 😀
Cowgirl is making great progress getting Penny into the trailer. The first time she tried to load after she brought Penny home did not go well. Penny is a bit spoiled by wide slant load trailers with ramps. We have an older, narrow step-up. Penny is getting the hang of it and hopefully she’ll be good to haul soon. The new farrier comes tomorrow to fix her loose slider.
Cowgirl is getting a bit discouraged about our little business. Gosh darn shipping is crazy expensive. Why?? We thought we had our first sale today, but in the end it looks like shipping costs killed the order. And, ugh, we lost the supplier for the cute little bumblebees we put on the polos. Apparently the manufacturer changed hands and our supplier can’t get them anymore. We’re looking into an embroidery machine – which I’ve wanted anyway. We found one for re-sell at a good price. Investment money is getting pretty tight. Hopefully, we can hold out until horse show season starts in February.
My good news (aside from not breaking myself when I fell off the stairs in the house – face plant at the front door) is that I have 90% of my Christmas sewing done! And 90% of my shopping as well. It’s been years since I’ve been this close to finished before Thanksgiving. I’m super geeked.
And That’s What’s Happening on the Hobby Farm!
