Blonde Girl

With The Kid being on summer holidays, Sable is getting pampered and loved on nearly every day. Blonde Girl loves it. 🙂
Here she is after one of those sessions…she’d had a bath, had her mane pulled, tail brushed out, bridle path clipped, feathers trimmed, a good hoof cleaning and oiling, and a wipe down with bug spray.

"Whatchoo doing over there Mum? You s'posed to be snuggling me."

“Whatchoo doing over there Mum? You s’posed to be snuggling me.”

Every time we work with this sweetheart, I think about how lucky we are she chose our family. And she did! She chose Hubby and The Kid. Happily, she loves my company too. ❤
One the funniest things she does, is when she’s having her hooves worked on-be it cleaning, oiling, or trimming-she puts her muzzle right in my cleavage and breathes. Obviously it’s because my scent is strong there, and it helps her relax, but it’s so freakin’ funny to have this big horse head right in between your boobs, y’know? LOL!

It’s all good though…the only time I make her move her head from there is when she starts to drool. I don’t want horse drool down my shirt!

Midnight Calico Farm

Here we are. It’s Monday.
Are y’all excited?
It’s logo reveal day!

I’ve been pondering this since we bought the farm, and working it out in my head for months. Finally, I figured out how it was to look on paper.

With out further fuss, here it is, the Midnight Calico Farm logo:

midnight calico2.1

Horses, because they were our first large animal. Bison, because they are what we are working towards having. And the Moon, just because.

Coming soon, the opportunity to purchase t-shirts, hoodies, and other assorted items emblazoned with our logo. 🙂



On to the next fun part.
I said on Friday, that to go with the logo reveal, we’d be doing a giveaway, and we are. Here’s your chance to get one of the new Farm products, and all you have to do is leave a comment that answers the following questions…all answers are here on the blog, so it’s not too hard.

1. Name the Rescue the original 3 horses came from.

2. Tell me the names of the original 3 horses…and a bonus point for those who can tell me which one had her name changed and what it was changed to.

3. Name 2 species of wildlife we’ve seen on the farm since moving here.

Oh, and if you answer these right, what do you win? Let me tell you!
You will have the choice of either a set of 4 cards, featuring images from the farm, or you can choose 1 8×10 print from the same set of images.

Wanna see the pictures?
