WE HAVE NEW FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*scrolls past selfies to find the right photos* Aha! There they are! 😉

Okay, so in my last post, you couldn’t see the pictures of pregnant Binky…well, if you had of seen them, you would have thought she was huge and I probably would have gotten tons of comments about how big she was…….but then she got bigger..and bigger.. and bigger. And compared to those other pictures, she looked normal size back then. Take a look at these recent ones taken on the evening of the 25th.DSCN6743.JPG

I’d never even seen piglets little like this before, and now I own some!!!!

Okay so now that you’ve seen the extreme adorableness, I’ll tell you about them. They were born yesterday, May 26th, 2017 Friday, and there are four pink ones, a pink and black spotted one, and a black one. 🙂 We have some names, but haven’t picked exactly which for which names yet!! 🙂

The names are

Ninja (the black one)

Binkleton (my older sister came up with this! XD It’s the pink one with black around it’s ears)

Humphrey (thanks Megan.. 😉 )

Mr. Softbelly (another one from my other sister. 😉 )

So we have to come up with two more.. and I want to come up with another one and let my bestie (P.B ;)) name the other. 🙂

Okay. Thanks for reading, guys!!! I hope you can see the pics alright! If you can’t, maybe I can email them to you if you really want to see them! 🙂 Have a good weekend! If you have any questions (which I hope you do) leave them in the comments! So far, the spotted one is the sweetest! It fell asleep in my lap! 🙂 🙂 And I can’t tell which are boys and girls yet. The black one is a girl, but other than that I don’t know.

BYE!!!

Life…

Hey everyone!! 🙂 K.A here! I know, hard to believe…I’ve been gone for a while. :/ Since January I guess..at least, that’s what my last post says… I’m sorry I haven’t been posting much at all lately. But more than that, I miss our long comment chats. I hope we can still have them. And I’m not going to be back for a long time you see… :/ It doesn’t sound very good, saying this in a blog post but… I’m glad I’m not on here as much. Now hear me through…. I wish I would make more time for it, but I’m glad I’m not on it 24/7 like I was before. I hope I can get to posting at least once every couple weeks, but I just don’t know. I don’t even know how I can be SOOO busy! It’s crazy! Haha! I don’t even feel that busy… anyways, there was a lot going on before (as in 2016) that I wasn’t getting into, because all I ever did was blog. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very glad I have a blog, and I like blogging, but I was just spending TOO MUCH TIME on here. I was missing important things in the real world, and not spending much time at all with my family. I’m glad I’m doing that more now. SO… now I’ll stop ranting and get on with the post: What I’ve been up to.

So it’s burning season right about now, and the other day daddy went out to burn pasture. Because it was time to burn pasture for the guy that we take care of cattle for. Now if you don’t know why we burn pasture, it is because there is often so much dry grass, that when the cattle are brought to pasture, there is nothing to eat but dry grass, and they don’t gain hardly any weight off of that, so they can’t be sold for as much money. So we burn the pasture, leave the green stuff and let fresh grass grow, and then they can eat that and get real nice and chubby! 🙂 So daddy already burned pasture, but there were some parts that didn’t catch fire between creeks and stuff, so we lit them today. There’s this thing called a gas pipe, that you put gas into and flip it over so that the gas comes out one end, and then lite a little bit of grass on fire and then the pipe will sorta catch on fire (the end where the gas is spurting out) and then you drive around the patch of unburned stuff and it leaves a line of fire behind you! Kinda scary, but really cool too!! After that we came home and ate and then did dog chores. Then when I was doing my pig chores (they are SO BIG) I saw a lizard! I tried to catch him, but he was too fast. 😦 He had green legs and a brown/white back! We’ve had a lot of lizards kinda like that around our place in the last few years… we had like 5 baby lizards like that down by the barn a while back! But I haven’t seen them in a while. Anyways, after I failed at catching the lizard, I went and punched on the punching bag for a while! 🙂 It’s a good way to get your anger out! But I wasn’t angry anyways! XD Hehe! It was still fun though. That’s about all I did today, but I’m having a sleepover with my (awesome) friend later tomorrow! 🙂 We’ll call her P.B. Haha! She’s soooo cool! I love doing stuff with her. She’s also very tall, but younger than me.. makes me feel like a shrimp, but I always have to remind her that I’m older! Anyways, she’s really really fun. I can’t WAIT for tomorrow night with “P.B”. Haha!

Also some other things have happened lately that I don’t believe I’ve told you about! Such as….

WE HAVE MORE PUPPIES!!! They were born Feb 16th, 2017 and there are 5 of them! TOMORROW THEY ARE EIGHT WEEKS OLD THOUGH!!! AHHHHHH!!!! NOOO! They’re all going to the same person though. Except for Rossi! She’s OURS to KEEP! YAYYYYY!!!!The pups are out of Flare soooo.. SCOUT’S A GRANDPA! :O Weird…. XD HEhe!

Their names are Melvin, Auto, Feathers, Babe (Baby), and Rossi!! 2 boys and three girls! They’re SO GREAT! Feathers is very VERY fluffy! She’s definitely got long hair! 🙂 I don’t have a USB cable for my camera and I can’t change setting on the card to make it go to my removable drive, so right now my camera is technically out of commission. Whenever I get a new cord though I can hopefully put the pics on here to show to you!! 🙂 ***FOUR HOURS LATER*** EEK! I just figured out how to do it with the card!!! Here are some pup pics.

DSCN5905.JPG

Sorry it’s sideways. This is Feathers!!

ALSO…… *drumroll please*

WE HAVE BABY GOATS!!!!! I know, I should have already told you about this buuuuut… I didn’t soo. 🙂 Anyways, we have 5 of them also! two girls and three boys. The two girls are twins and the others are singles. One of the boys is black with a white stripe on his back and white ears! HE”S SO CUTE! We haven’t named them except for the twins are Rufnut and Tufnut. 😛 Off of “How to train your dragon.”

The pictures of the baby goats won’t work… I’m not sure why. SORRY!

Also I still have 3 of my pups from last year to sell. (any of you want a 10 mo old border collie? *hint hint*) I have a girl and two boys. The girl is Zig and the boys are Zag and Bobber. They’re actually becoming quite well behaved and sweet! 🙂 Dad has one of his pups that he is trying to sell as well… Freddy. 😉

AND GUESS WHAT!???????

BINKY IS PREGNANT!!!!

YAAAY!!!!! She is SO HUGE! I think she’ll have them around the end of this month or beginning of May! I can hardly fit my hand between her belly and the ground, and if there’s any grass at all it just about drags!! :O She’s HUGE!!! I’m SO EXCITED AND NERVOUS AT THE SAME TIME!!!! EEEEEK! Here are some pics of the Pigs!! 🙂

DSCN5974.JPG

PRICELESS BINKY! XD  Please use this as a caption it! XD I would say “Dude, do you really have to take a picture? I”M EATING!”DSCN6018.JPG

AND WE HAVE A NEW ADDITION!!!!!!!

Autumn Rebel Joy! A horse! She’s a palamino yearling. She is one beautiful girl. She needed a home where someone would spend more time with her, so she’s our beautiful girl now! 🙂 Someone gave her to us. I hopefully can get pics of her to you soon too! 😉 I’ve only seen her a bit, because she’s not super close to the house, but I hope I can go up and say high soon!! 🙂

Anyways, now you know a bit of what I’ve been up to lately! 🙂 I hope you enjoyed! Thanks so much for reading! Wow, 1,121 words long! Haha! 😉 Sounds short….just kidding.

Also I’ve been doing stuff at Co-op lately. We’re doing a writing class now and I’ve written a couple stories. I’m hoping to post them on my writing blog “myburstsofinspiration.wordpress.com” soon!

Again, thanks for reading, guys!!! I can’t BELIEVE HOW MANY FOLLOWERS I HAVE! :O Also I was looking at my views and I have some from AUSTRALIA!!!!! Sorry, I LOVE the Australian accent. I REALLY want to go to Australia! 🙂 If you Australians are reading this then I’m saying “HI AND I LOVE YOUR GUYS’ ACCENT!!!! IT”S SO COOL!!! PLEASE TEACH ME” Haha! 🙂 Byyyye! And I hope you enjoyed the pictures! XD Binky and Ham are SO BIG!

Me

Working cattle.

So, yesterday I worked cattle. Yeah…. Fun! No, it really is a lot of fun! But kind of tiring. I helped this same person work cattle on Wednesday too, but he had two loads then. There were about 150 cattle on Wednesday, but yesterday (Saturday the 21st) there were 300. It took from 8:00 AM until 3:00ish PM. I just gave them one shot in front of the shoulder, and kept them coming into the chute when they didn’t want to. My Grandad was also there, and he branded them, checked to make sure they were steers (there was one bull we castrated), sprayed them with some antibacterial stuff, and if they had horns we De-horned them. There were quite a few we had to dehorn yesterday, but only one to castrate. I held the tail up while he castrated it! we took one break after about 200 were done, but that’s it. The vaccine I gave them needed to be refilled for every 50 cattle, so Grandad showed me how to do that, and when I saw that it was drawing air out of the bottle I would put on a new one! 🙂 Anyhoo, I thought I’d tell you, in case you ever wondered what goes on in working cattle! If you didn’t already know. Sorry for the short post, I hope you enjoyed!!

My Pigs!

Hey guys! This is going to be a short, picture-less post because – after all – it is 9:16 PM and I don’t have a ton of time. I wanted to give you guys and update on my pigs though! 😀 I’m sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted (I’ve been saying that a lot, haven’t I?) but…here I am! 😉 Haha! Well, my pigs are doing GREAT! Hamilton had been a bit cranky, but he’s been better lately! I figured out that I can actually LET THE PIGS OUT OF THEIR PEN, and they won’t run away!!!! They run around and exercise and it’s SO cute! Then if I call them, or shake their food around, they’ll come running back! Or if I run around, they’ll follow me! They can’t go very fast…but they try. 😉 😀 I was sick yesterday, so I wasn’t able to go do their chores, but today, when I let them out, Hammy wouldn’t even go outside until I did! He wanted me to pet on him. It was so sweet! They’re both so cute. And with all the rain recently, Binky is an adorable muddy mess when I go in the pen, because she’s been rooting in the mud. I tend to call them “Hami-ton” (more of a babyish way to say it) and “Binky-Bo” Sooo…yeah! I love them though. Even if Hammy has been kinda…cranky. :/ I’m so very glad I got them! I don’t know if Binky is Pregnant, I’m sure hoping, but like I said, I don’t know. They have gotten multiple new folds of chub (each one that they’re very proud of..) and aren’t QUITE as cute as they were in their younger stages. They’re still quite adorable to me though! You’ll see when I get some pictures up. The computer has been odd lately, so it’s been a few months since I’ve uploaded any new pictures. I guess that’s why having a 64 GB card comes in handy! 🙂 Haha! Anyways, I thought I would tell you about my pigs. They’re doing GREAT, and I love them very much! I can’t WAIT until Binky has her babies! I sure hope I can find good owners for them!!! See you guys later!

~K.A~

I haven’t really been up to a lot lately… I’m working cattle tomorrow, and that means our horses will be coming back from pasture soon!!

Anyways, thanks SO much for reading!

If \ A Discussion Post

Anika wrote this post on my new collab blog -https://youngladiesforchrist.wordpress.com- and it was definitely worthy of a reblogal. 🙂 So here it is. It is an AMAZING post, and deserves as much credit as possible! 😀

That’s all I have to ask you: if.

Actually, no, it’s not. I have a question for you girls, and I have a challenge.

Here’s my question:

IF you were to DIE TODAY, WHERE do you THINK you would go?

WRITE YOUR ANSWER TO ^THAT^ QUESTION DOWN BEFORE FINISHING THIS POST. You might wanna get a pen and paper or pull up your notes app on your phone cause you’re gonna need to write A LOT of things down.

Okay. See those capitalized words in the question? Those are important. Let’s discuss them one by one.

IF.

There’s not too much to discuss IF because we all know what it means. So, that means that you’re probably not going to die today, but IF you were…

DIE.

That is a strong, powerful and sometimes scary word; DIE.
Here’s a good question for you to write down:

Are you scared…

Five years ago from today, a terrible accident happened. Five years ago from today, a miracle happened. Guiney, my sister’s dog, died and came back to life. But I’m not here to tell you about that night. I’m not here to tell you about five years ago. I’m here to tell you that at the beginning of this year, I had different thoughts about things. I didn’t have the respect for certain things like I do now, such as how much my mom and dad do to keep things running around here. And how little I did. I’ve been so busy the past few years pouting, thinking of myself, that I don’t realize much about others. I’ve realized this year that I want to make a difference, and I can. This year, I’ve not only become older, but I feel like I’ve gained more responsibility, and gotten at least a tad bit more mature. Starting the year with so many baby animals, having to have more responsibility with pups running around everywhere, along with more summer cattle jobs, and an amazing October where I got my first two pigs at the fair. Shadowing a vet and filling out some possible information of my future with college. This year has been such a good year, one so full of so many new experiences, and new friends. And as the days keep coming, and I keep living, I hope that I will take time to notice the people around me, and help those who need help, comfort the ones who need comforted, and be a good influence on everybody I’m around. I want God to lead me in the ways of righteousness, and help me to be kind to everyone I’m around. I want Jesus to take me down the path I need to go. And I want to spread the good news of Jesus Christ to everybody. So why am I writing this? I guess I just wanted to tell you that you always have to shine for God. And no matter what, after every sunset, there is a sunrise. And after every sunrise, another sunset. When the sun stops shining, the moon continues. Sometimes there will be dark nights, but if you keep watching, the light will shine.

~K.A~

I have to get back to tonight now. To our yummy snacks, happy movies.. or possibly sad… and have a great night. You guys have a great 2017. Happy new year!

A Day at the Vet Clinic.

Hey guys! Yesterday (Wednesday the 28th, 2016) I shadowed a vet all day at his office. It was great! Meaning 8:30 AM to 4:30ish PM. Because, for you who don’t know, I’m very interested in Vet work. Here is the story of my day. Prepare yourself for a hurricane of words:

I’m going to tell you about the life changing day I had at the Veterinary Clinic yesterday. It was all so amazing.

I first got there and saw a cat outside, which I later figured out was ‘Rattles’, their cat. I went inside and was told that the guy I would be doing most of the stuff with was outside, but if I wanted, they said I could see a cat that had just had surgery. So I went in the back to see the cat, and watched a lady give it some fluids. I followed her around for a while, not doing a whole lot, but looking at the dogs and cats and helping her with some stuff. She said it was time for a dog to be neutered and got it out of its pen. She brought it in the surgical room where another lady was and they sedated it. I saw up to where it was getting really wobbly, but then it was time for the guy I was shadowing to go look at a horse with an injured eye. He asked if I would be okay with holding it while he sedated it, and of course, I said sure. He didn’t give it enough to put the horse on the ground, just to make it sleepy. It had a runny eye, and he said that was because the tear duct (where it ran from the eye down to the nose to drain) was clogged. So we went inside and got stuff for it…a bucket, a little thing to put in its nose, and a syringe with Saline…or something that sounded like that. While we were in there getting stuff, I looked in the surgical room and saw the doggy tied to the chair with a sheet over it, being neutered. I went back out with the guy vet, and he pulled the horse’s nose open and showed me a TINY- TINY- little hole where it breathes in and stuff at. Then he stuck a little white hose into the hole, not all the way up its nose, but just into it, and then pushed the liquid stuff in the syringe into the nose through the hose. Some snot came out of the hole and the other stuff, but the liquid didn’t make it up and out of the eye, so it wasn’t completely unclogged yet. So we got more liquid, did it again, got some more, and did it again. And that time it squirted out the eye a little, so we knew it was mostly good. Then he did the other side, just to make sure, and it came a LOT out of the eye, so we knew it was good! Then he checked out the actual eye and told the lady there was nothing wrong with it. Just then the horse woke up again and we loaded it in the trailer and went back inside.

He asked if I had been shown around much, and I said not really. So he went through all the rooms and showed me what each one was for. And what it had in it. There was the microscope, a laser machine they use to cut into an animal instead of a knife because it would cauterize it as it cut. There were a couple ultrasounds that they used to preg-check animals.  They also had an x-ray machine in the bathroom that turned the ACTUAL x-rays into pictures! Then his office room with all his stuff, and the examination room, the surgical room, and many others. In the surgical room, there was a chart on how old your dog was in human years! Since Aggie is 5, she would be 38ish in human years!! Eeeek! There was another chart above the weighing thing for the dogs, that told how to tell if your dog is obese, overweight, perfect, underweight, or skinny! There wasn’t a whole lot to do…. He went to go do some cleaning up and some stuff in his office and I headed to the examination room where a lady was examining someone’s dog that had been throwing up stuff. She told the guy not to feed the dog the rest of that day, but just water it with little bits.

Next the same woman examined someone’s dog that had gotten its paw stuck in a trap. It didn’t look too bad, other than a bit of swelling… so I went back to where the guy I was shadowing was and he told me a bunch of stuff. About ring worms, parvo, some pig problems, such as common stomach aches from eating too fine of food. Or them rubbing so hard on each other that they turn something inside of them inside out. Also I asked him what the weirdest animal he’d ever treated before was. He said that in college, he had to do surgery on a wallaby at the zoo! After that it was lunch time, and he went to go eat, and I ate in the little room with tons of snacks… Then I just pet more on Rattles, listened to a guy make an appointment to have his dog spayed and such things as that. Then I found him again when he was back doing stuff on his computer. We left for another place where he said we would preg-check cows, vaccine some calves, give them ear tags, and then for the same people we would vaccinate their dogs and cats and then look at their goat with pregnancy issues. Then we would drop off some vaccines to a guy so that he could give them to his dad for his dogs.

On the way there he told me about Brucellosis. And how it was almost gone because of vaccines to get rid of it that people allowed by the government had given to the cows. He said that the only place it wasn’t quite taken care of was near Yellowstone, because there were Bison there that they couldn’t vaccinate, and if cows got near the bison there sometimes, they would get it. This link will tell you a bit more about that.

We also talked about his dog, and my dogs. My horse, my sisters, my pigs… A lot of things.

He told me that I could preg-check the cows after him if I wanted to, and I OBVIOUSLY did!!! He did the first one and said it was a 7. I wasn’t sure what he meant by that, but as he went, I figured out that that was kind of a scale of how close they were to calving. Six wasn’t very much. Nine was really close! After he checked the first one, he told me I could put on a glove if I wanted! AND I DID! I reached way up in the cow and felt the little calf. It was so cool! I couldn’t really feel anything on that one. But I felt about 5 cows probably and one of them was a nine!! He told me that the calf’s foot was about the size it would be when it was BORN! I felt something hard, but not terribly well. It was soooo cool though! When I pulled my arm out of course it was covered in manure. But I knew it would be like that anyways. I was glad I had a long, long glove on though! Then after he checked all of those cows, we took the gloves off and went to start vaccinating the heifers. The people then told us that they wanted him to preg-check them too, to make sure they WEREN’T pregnant. I didn’t do that with them, but I watched him. He would preg-check them, vaccinate them, give them an ear tag (which I refilled each time he was done), and then did a little number thing in their ear and rubbed it with green goo to make the holes filled with goo and turn green! There was one that needed de-horned, so he got his clippers, a bucket with water in it, a rope, some scissors, and some powdery stuff. He made the rope into a halter type thing and had the lady (that was wearing leather gloves) hold it while he clipped off the horns and then pinched the nerve with the little scissors so it wouldn’t bleed as much. Then he would shake the powder stuff on it, and then put his stuff with that in the bucket out of the way. We kept going, and there were three bad eyes to check. He looked at them, but said that they were all the same, nothing to do about them. But then there was another bad eyed one they saw a little later where its eye stuck out about oh… 1 ½ – 2 inches out from the eye. He said that he was going to cut into the outer part of the eye, and take out the lens of the eye. He cut into the outer layer, and blood spewed and liquid squirted everywhere, and I looked around him more just to see that, and part of the eye ball fall on the ground. He pushed the little part left of the eye further in, and stuck half an antibiotic pill in the eye, and quickly sewed it shut. I saw most of it, but it didn’t seem that gross to me. Or scary. It was kind of cool. I thought it was so neat that there was something you could do for an eye like that! He picked the squishy lens up off the ground and said that the cow already couldn’t see, so by taking the lens out (which was causing all the swelling) it wouldn’t hurt as bad. The lens was squishy, and he said it should have been hard. He said that the lens is what sends the image to the back of the eye, so that it can tell the brain so that you know what you’re seeing! There were two teenage kids there, a boy and girl. And although I didn’t see much other than the squirting, falling, and sewing, I saw that they were making some faces.

After that we went to the back of his truck and they found all their dogs and cats that needed vaccines.  Then the vet went over to take a look at their goats. Which both had diarrhea. The lady had gotten a sample of one of the goats manure in a plastic bag, so we took it. He said that the other goat had already had her dead kid, so that was taken care of. Then we wrote down the few cows that were pregnant, how many we had preg-checked, and how many calves we’d vaccined, and preg-checked. Then we headed out to the guy’s place that needed vaccines for his dad.The vet I was shadowing later told me that he and this guy had gone to high school together, so they talked for a while about things. When we left the guy’s house where we’d given the vaccines, we went back to the clinic and washed up some stuff. I made sure to tell him thanks SOO much for having me out.

We got the goat sample (also known as manure), and mixed some with some stuff to make the parasite eggs (if there were any) float to the top. Then we swirled it around in a machine thingy, let it sit, put some more stuff in there, and took the top microscope glass and put it on the top of the bottle thing so that the eggs would stick to it, and put it under the microscope. The whip worms looked like a little football shape with bubbles on each point. There was one egg that had a squiggly line in the middle of it, which he said was the developing worm in the egg. He said sometimes you could see it wiggle, but I couldn’t. So all of that was a lot of fun. He also had to put in all the info about giving the dogs and cattle vaccines into his computer. Exhausting work.

There were some more examinations that I watched, including a lady with her tiny, TINY little dog named ‘baby girl’, that she was sure had a hurt leg. It was fine, but after that I asked him if it did have a hurt leg and he smiled real big and shook his head. As if it probably happened a lot. Then the guy that was the dad of the guy we dropped vaccines off to, came. He didn’t know he was coming that day either. His dog he brought was one that he needed to get vaccines for. My sister got there during the examination to pick me up, and I told the vet I had to go and said goodbye. And told my sister ALLLLLLLL about it in the car.

After the long day, I was DEFINITELY leaning more towards wanting to be a vet than ever. I want to help animals, I want to help their owners. I want to help society. But whatever I end up doing, whether it’s being a vet or a garbage man, I’m going to serve God forever in whatever I do. I’m K.A, and I want to make a difference.

So, did you like it? It was the most amazing experience ever. With the year spiraling down to an end, I’ve had so many amazing things happen this year, and I hope that one of these years, I may be going to vet college. If it’s God’s will. I’m also interested in being a Vet Tech. Or Vet assistant. The guy I interned with is an AMAZING guy, who’s very easy to be around, and fun to hang out with. He knows what he’s doing, and is calm about what he does. He’s an all-around cool guy.
