I'm moving to the big city!

FarmWife tells me we're moving to Coupeville, Washington. It's a big city by my standards. 400 kids in the elementary school!

FarmWife and the humans are busy as all get-out getting this beautiful, highly-desirable little farm ready to list. (If ever you wanted a starter farm in the country, by golly, this is your chance!)

I've caught the adventuring bug, and have been exploiting FarmWife's distracted condition by leaning on fences, testing boundaries, and overleaping small barriers. She is torn: make expensive improvements to the fencing, when other projects appear to take priority, or lock me in my sacrifice paddock until we sell and go? I feel I walk a dangerous line, but the green grass of spring compels me not to take heed.

Until I am barred from it, the sweet grass will be my solace.

New Year, Spa Day

We started today with a bit of mule beautification, thanks to FarmWife. "Arrietty is such a good little girl," she thought. "Arrietty doesn't need to be tied up for grooming," she thought. "Arrietty wouldn't dare role in the middle of such an enjoyable routine," she thought. 

Here is me, Fenway Bartholomule, Before, During, and After my beautification: 

And here's Arrietty before, during, and after her beautification: 

Happy new year! Roll in peace and health, my friends!

Whoops. Sorry about that.

Well, my twelve days of Christmas thing sure fell flat. It is just so hard for FarmWife to find time for blogging with her dear old mule when she's also busy with three jobs, three kids, and a house.

Here's my new years resolution: I may not be the one of the world's best bloggers anymore, but I do resolve to continue to be one of the world's best mules.

And, if anything awesome happens, I promise I'll tell you. I still love you more than words can bray.

Fenway Bartholomule.
