You just can't get good help...
« on: October 02, 2016, 12:38:29 AM »

I had to be away from home for a family thing.  I had enough time to plan, so I could make up pre-mix buckets of feed for the mares, they share nice enough that Shayne just had to divide into the feed pans outside. Directions were to feed one bucket once daily...  Shayne is out at day three, he fed twice daily oops.  Mares must love him.  My mix is a bit complicated, so no goodies tomorrow, and I'll have to figure out if I can be clear enough with instructions to even try to tell him basic mix.

Looks like I might be home later tomorrow, so girls can do without just fine.

That's what I was thinking.
They missed out today and I should be there to feed tomorrow.
[Don't worry they've got hay, they are only missing a hard feed. ]

Well, my10th little grandchild, Ryan, is trying to make his entrance a bit too early!!  We expect when he arrives he will be heading to the NICU, but of course, all of my heard of children made early appearances and were "NICU" babies, so we're all prepared for what comes next.

I've been at the hospital most of the day, and just came home for clothes and a quick nap.  Then, back an hour to the hospital, and we'll wait it out some more.

I'd appreciate any prayers for this little one.  This is the first child for my son, Ben, so he's a bit nervous with this unexpected turn of events, since we weren't expecting Ryan until around November 15th.  I'll keep everyone posted when I can, and thanks for the prayers!

Thanks again, Chanda!  I really appreciate it, and can't wait for the quilts -- seems we'll need one of them "ahead of schedule" !!

Well, sort of two of them ahead, since one can't be gifted without the other.   :)
