The other button on my sponsor list belongs to Chimacum Tack, whose proprietor has been tremendously helpful in teaching me how to train FarmWife to handle the lines, choose and order a harness, ready my training equipment, and what-have-you. Janie at Chimacum sells more than just harness, and the mini-to-draft sizes of her blankets, bits, sheets, and boots will delight the owners of hard-to-fit equines.
Speaking of hard-to-fit, I am on a no-grain, few-treats, reduced-hay, limited-grass diet here, and according to some humans around the place I still look like I'm about to have twins. I have decided to give in and try this weight-loss business. Any tips on how to get svelte when you oughtn't exercise and you're already living on fumes?? I called Weight Watchers about trying a meeting . . . they don't have facilities to accommodate my girth.
p.s. The above photo was taken two weeks ago when I was still had delicious, leafy third-cutting orchard grass hay to eat. Now I am on to this year's first cutting hay, which is stemmy and brown by comparison. FarmWife is searching for a new source, but in the meantime she may have found a perfect weight-loss program by accident!
