Patriot or Traitor?

by Susan Fay on 12/15/16

"There is no Democrat/Republican side to the Russian influence in this election. You are either a patriot or a traitor. Choose wisely."  ~David Yankovich

"The Right Side of History"

by Susan Fay on 12/12/16

"I know that it can feel like we are all drowning in a deluge of compounding outrages, with every headline about this impending administration appearing to one-up the last, but take heart.

You may have been on the losing side of this year's election, but you are on the right side of history. In the final tally, courage will always defeat fear; love will always conquer hate; the beautiful diversity of America, and indeed all of humanity, will always outshine the darkness of racial enmity.

This is the reason I write, to remind people of honor and courage; to tell them that their cause isn't lost, that their destiny is victory."

~Charles M. Blow from his New York Times OpEd, "Patriotic Opposition to Donald Trump"

Winter... It's never going to be my favorite season. EVER. Between the dicey weather conditions, the loss of hot water at the house, and a busted frost-free hydrant, this past week was... challenging. On the plus side, I have a hot water wash rack in the barn that doubles just fine as a people shower. The broken spigot has been replaced. And -- BONUS ALERT -- the temporary stall that we placed in the barn breezeway is our twenty-seven year-old pony, Summer's, new best hangout. She LOVES being in the middle of the other six horses and seems to relish the added attention and treats. Yup. Think I'm gonna survive winter just fine.


Dispensing Donald T-Rump

by Susan Fay on 12/11/16

Sometime in September, I renamed my rooster. I had been calling him Scooter-roo, but when he became increasingly brutal to the five hens entrusted to his care, leaving their backs bloodied and featherless, I decided to call him Donald T-rump. 

Sadly, Donald T-rump's unwelcome sexual advances went beyond brutal, culminating in his murder my favorite hen, Carmelita.

Justice is simple here at the ranch.  If one of the animals attempts or succeeds at taking the life of one the other critters, it is segregated or dispensed.  Donald T-rump's carcass was left out in the woods, an offering to the wild things.

It took several weeks before the three remaining hens healed, gained weight, and stopped looking over their shoulders for the nasty-roo.  Little Red Hen was in the worst shape.  As you can see from this snapshot, she's looking marvelous.



The Running Thread

by Susan Fay on 11/21/16

"The thing that I have always been convinced of, the running thread through my career, has been this notion that when ordinary people get engaged, pay attention, learn about the forces that affect their lives and are able to join up with others, good stuff happens.” ~President Barack Obama

"You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one.  Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own.  It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle."
 Paulo Coelho
