Jenna, I rarely comment on here, but felt I had to. After looking at these pictures compared to when Jasper came into your care, there is no doubt that you are truely a good steward to the land and animals in your care. Thank-you for setting such a good example.

Jasper = the new Clumper. Our tree felling went a bit better than for the folks on "Victorian Farm."

I'm really enjoying seeing all the pictures from the weekend. These especially look so idyllic - I feel like I'm looking at a painting from the turn of (last) century.

Yes, Jasper does look like his new home and keeper have benefited him well. It is nice to see him doing work.

OT: Did you commission this piece? Hehe

Jasper looks great... I cracked up my partner last night when I showed him the pics. "Honey, we need a pony to collect firewood too! Go gettem Jasper!" The fact that our yard is bursting at the seams with a growing garden, new chicken tractor, and future big dog and tiny goat dreams seemed beside the point... for a moment. Besides, any felling of (the two) trees on our land will have to be carefully calculated so that the logs don't land ON the woodstove in the house, through the roof. haha, such is city life... last night we were laying in bed, listening to the 30-40 mi/hr winds whistling around our little brick cabin, and I only slept easy because the winds were from the NE and the monster tree is to the SW of our house. Yikes! I think we'd need a team of Clydesdales to move that sucker if it fell. They'll both have to come down eventually- on is a Tree of Heaven (invasive) and the other is the massive cottonwood that not in the best of health and would take out the house if it fell the wrong way. Hopefully we can just trim them heavily until we get some desirable replacements grown up to a good size!

I must say that Antlerstock was fantastic. A huge thank you to Jenna and all of the wonderful people we met. Jason and I had a great time and hope to do it again next year. We learned so much but the best thing was learning with other people and from other people. Now I'm counting days until wool!!!

Antlerstock was beyond AWESOME from the fantastic workshops down to the Jack-o-lantern path to the campfire, watching Sal chase apples, and then of course all the good company and conversation! Can't wait for the next one. Thanks Jenna!

He's earning his keep well. You've got him in great condition now and he will certainly be useful on your land.
