Outside Circle by Jan Swan Wood: Thankfulness, calcutta at Kadoka, penning and sorting series, WNFR info, clinic, queens needed

With Thanksgiving upon us, there are many things to be thankful for in spite of all the mess in our nation. I’m personally thankful that I’m not a turkey. Also, thankful to have made it around the sun 60 consecutive laps. I’m thankful to still have cows, though they aren’t exactly a get-rich-quick scheme. They never have been in my lifetime. I’m thankful to still have a couple of good horses though they’re getting some age on them like me. I’m most thankful for my family and the time I get to spend with them and the joy that my grandkids bring me. Thankfulness is a choice.

Since the weather is holding so nice, this would be a good time to geld those stud colts you have. They’ll heal up fast, flies won’t bother them, and they’ll be able to run with your fillies and mares next spring without worry.

This is also a good time to deworm your horses, providing you’ve had at least one hard freeze. Bot eggs will be starting their cycle and you don’t want them to get established in you horse, I promise. Use a botacide wormer when you do.

Well, that’s my circle for this week. Have a great week, enjoy your Thanksgiving and take some time to be thankful. Pray for our nation. God bless America.
