  2. A hand built log shed for the horses?!? Now THAT'S Pioneer-y! Yeah!!
    It's coming along beautifully, love the shiny wreath to make it festive! I really like the pictures from behind the horse too! :)

  3. I loved this! And your resilience, grit and stick-2-it-ness . . . through a really, really devastating year!

    Wishing you some merry and happy twenty thirteen!

  4. Amazing work on those logs. Feral Woman horses are getting the BEST. Also admiring the view of that tush in the kevlar chaps. PW has a loooong way to go to keep up with FW!

    Lack of snow in your part of the Mountain West too. But it's gotta be a blessing during post-fire recovery. Happy Holidays!

  5. well, since i'm the only 2 1/2 yr blogger that has NEVER once visited pioneer woman's site, i'll just have to take your word for it that you outdid her. :)

  6. I'm not sure I know what you're talking about here, but I do know what I see and what I know. That log shed for your horses is amazing, as is Mr. Forestman. With all you've been through this past year, you are blessed with a strong and stubborn mind, you are blessed with a good man and you both survived a disaster. Merry Christmas to you, your Forestman, Dexter Dog, Tomez, and the rest of the critters. May next year bring a lot of JOY to you home.

  8. Oh well first off I will take a few of those bear hugs and I must say everything is looking good and I am not just talking about Mr. incredibly handy Mr.Foresterman. The log horse home is going to be magnificent and I cannot wait to see it done and I pretty sure your horses can't either. What does a horse need light switches for anyways, do they read when we are all sleeping?
    Keep laughing and smiling my friend. I am right there with you pitching in OK maybe just in spirit it is much easier on these old bones:) HUGS xxoo Have a nice dinner with friends I will be thinking of you. Merry Christmas Love the wreath it spiffs up the joint:) {{BEAR HUGS}}:) B

  13. Ok I had to go take a look at the Okie Women. You certainly do have her hands down. You go girl. So glad to see you guys making progress on the horse barn. They are going to be so snug in there. I know the work involved. Did an addition on an existing log house. We took the logs from the forest and I peeled them and hubby scribed them. We also used the tractor for putting it together. Ok I did and and never want to have to do it again. Oh you should see my outfits sometimes. People are so surprised to see me when I don't expect anyone. It's rags all the way. Wishing you and your forestman a very blessed Christmas and a happy new year.

  19. You don't need to compete with PW. You've got her beat hands down in my book.

    Thinking of you on this Christmas and standing in line for some of those bear hugs.

  20. Yay, Feral! You show her what you're made of. Besides, I'm sick of seeing the photos of her husband's butt when he's wearing chaps. What's that all about anyhow? Shouldn't grown ups keep their butts to themselves? !!! I look forward to seeing the shed when it's done. I hope your Christmas was good. I wish you and yours all the best for 2013. You deserve to have a wonderful New Year!

  21. Nice job on the log stable. Everyone needs a new stable for Christmas. I see Baby is supervising.
    Did he eat the wreath?

I am feral, so although I dont respond at all like most domesticated bloggers, I will try my best - Thank you for even wanting to leave a comment, as it may draw me out from the woods from whence I came!

Or under a rock, it depends most days...
