Finally I am on the mend (I hope)

As a lot of you know I have been suffering severe depression for a couple of years now and it has taken ages to find the right meds to balance my brain chemicals out, but I think we are finally there. The better weather is certainly helping, and the getting out and about on my own a bit too.

I am working on a little project with Valerie as she does great pencil sketches and paints, and digital art. I am hoping to incorporate it with my efforts which have come to a grinding halt but I have plans for expansion and marketing for the near future.

I am hoping that we are not heading for a,other drought because we have had no rain, the pastures are bare still and we normally start getting our first cuttings from the farmers in May. I will have to go and check out their fields. I just hope their prices come down a bit but with diesel at $4.40 a gallon plus I am not holding my breath.

I have finallly started getting sawdust again so I am getting all the stalls stripped, even with most of the horses out 24 7 and preparing them in case they are needed. Beginning of May I have to decide on 4 - 6 horses to send to the pasture down the road which will be a help.

I want to start working on Dosie and Cayenne first as they have the most experience under saddle, hopefully get them onto the trails if nothing else and make them safe rides which they really are already, they just need the miles put on to them.

Most importantly I have to start getting my readership up, my posts interesting and drawing more people to my site and photos and gifts for sale so that I can feed my brood LOL.

Thats it for now, todays photos are frpm the other day of a little dove in one of our trees and Blue out in the turnout

I have been under the weather with heart attack, pneumonia and now prostate problems so I have not been able to visit as much as I would like to.

I know it is hard, sometimes, to get beyond today and think about tomorrow but it is important that you keep the door open or it would be to me. And I always try to remember not to think too much.

Your photography is beautiful and the horse is adorable.

Here is the answer I posted on my blog about the feeders.

We have used hummingbird feeders here but the birds mostly use flowers for nectar and kind of top it off with the feeder nectar.

Sometimes in the morning when they are beginning the day, and are still in a kind of dormant stage they need a big boost of sugar in a hurry and they would often visit one of the feeders then.

We had one hanging on the shepherd's hook pole about 7 or 8 feet off the ground not close to anything and it got sun in the morning up until about Noon.

The other was hung close to my office window on a short shepherd's hook about 4 feet off the ground. We have no cats and allow none here in our backyard so that wasn't a problem.

I hope you're wrong about a drought, that would make hay prices a problem.

Glad to see that you are feeling better!

Love the horse!
