    I really like to play along with FB's (Francesca Battistelli) music. There's a wide variety of what you can do with each song because I can play an octave above or the same octave. (On violin). One of my favorites is "Beautiful, Beautiful" from her. Or "Write your Story", not to mention others...
    She sang "The best day of my life" at our fair. Loved it, but she doesn't have a recording out of it I don't think :idunno

    That's cool! The violin seems like a very interesting instrument to me. I play the trombone and would really like to learn how to play some country music on it so I think I'll work on that over the summer.

    I have a lot of plans for Summertime...
    *break my mini horse fo the cart and bombproof him a bit
    *learn some new songs ont eh violin
    *volunteering, etc.

    I looked at a nearby horse summer camp, but mom says she thinks it would be "beneath me", but IDK. I don't think I'll go to it either way, but thought it was neat that it is so close to us...

    That's cool! At the place where I ride we're trying to break the mini horse for the cart too.
    Other plans/goals for the summer are:
    ~Spend lots of time with my chickens
    ~Swim a lot
    ~Get my goats looking great for fair
    ~My mom is the head advisor of a 4-H club so I'll be helping lots of 4-H members
    ~4-H Camp
    ~Catch a pig at the Catch-A-Pig contest at the fair :lol:
    ~Volunteering
    ~Go for runs
    There's probably more that I'm forgetting.......but yeah those are some plans. :)

    Sounds like you'll be really busy too!
    :frow


    Crow (Sumatra hen) is picking on my silkie hen. Any tips? Silkie is scared of her....

    Of course! The more the merrier!

    Hmm....I'm not sure, I don't have experience with either breed. Maybe just spray the Silkie with tea tree oil, which is supposed to taste bad to other chickens. Good luck!

    And yeah, pretty busy summer! :)

    Hi, guys! It's been SOOOOOOO busy here! [​IMG]

    I wish I could give you some good advice, Isabel, but I don't know what I would do.[​IMG] The last hen we had that picked incessantly was a RIR, and she's gone to another home now because she tore a huge hole in Alex's back. [​IMG] Bali (our Black Sumatra) is a bit of a pick, but not excessively.

    I think I have an idea... when I took my one silkie out for bumblefoot treatment, they must have re-sorted the pecking order out with the one silkie ending up on bottom. I think if I take crow out for a few days, then reintroduce her, theyll have to sort out the pecking order again and maybe the silkies will end up back on top. Might work... worst that could go wrong is the silkie still gets picked on. :idunno
