Horse on the Lamb

Being woken up by a neighbor calling the house phone, and telling us that one of the horses (Pete) is up the road at his house is NOT the way I like to begin my day....... Better than starting the year I guess. LOL

 I still haven't figured out how Pete got out, Non of the fences were down, and all the gates were closed...... All I know is, I got them both in the small field in front of the house were they can't get out, and there they will stay until I am finished putting up the rest of the barbed wire fencing in the back field.

all things that are new

Well I have kinda changed course on my blacksmith shop business plan. Instead of just doing hand forged iron work, I am now making/selling blacksmithing forges, tools, and equipment. So far, I have made all my forge sales on, and I love it. It is sooooo easy, and more inexpensive than I thought it would be.
Here is a photo of a forge that I made about a month ago.

Also about a month or two ago ( I can't remember) me and my good friend Dave Custer, forged a hammer at his shop in eastern Ky.
Here is the hammer we made.

Here is a video too of the making of the hammer, and of us forging a "striking anvil" for Dave's blacksmith shop.

I don't remember what my shop looked like when I last showed it to yall, so here is a photo of it in it's current state.

It's still not completely finished, but it will have to do, since I am now building myself a log house!!!!!

Here are 2 video's I have of building the log house.

Part 1

Part 2

Well that's all I can think of that is new around here, so until next time. God's Speed.

Hey yall,

I know that it has been a long time since I wrote a regular post, or any thing for that matter, but it has because I had a iPad and not a regular laptop. But that is about to change, just today I bought a Dell laptop!!!!!!!
 So hopefully this means more blog posts, and if I go a while with out posting any thing, just drop a comment and say "hey bud, remember you said more blog posts???" LOL

Yall have a great new year!!!!
