Tiny Town a funtastic place for UFO group members to live.

Tiny Town  is our safe haven when life gets crazy. We are all healthy and happy here, because we know our neighbours and friends living here are quilters too. To buy a small house in Tiny Town, you must perform one random act of kindness , and to buy a larger home ( 2 chimnies), you'll be performing 2 random acts of kindness. All houses have large sewing rooms, and have been built to last.Large homes have storage for more stash, but smaller homes have bigger yards.  Here you can have housemates from your past, alive or otherwise, your present spouce ( only if you wish,lol) as well as pets from past or present. I know you will be responsible pet owers and thoughtfull neighbours, because this is just that kind of place.  Only houses on the back are for sale.

Liz, the pinto pony must belong to a resident in Tiny Town, but l don't know who. He just shows up in the orchard at Stonehenge from time to time, eating the long lush grass. No, he's not the horse in Layla's quilt. That one is much too well behaved to wander.

Barbara, that is why I could never be a farmer or rancher!

Oh Barbara, does that mean you are eating Bessy for dinner?  My daughter and her husband raise chickens, ducks and turkeys, a new addition.  The roosters have names but they do not name the chickens and others because some of them end up in their freezers.

My neighbor had a cow named Bessy. She would come if you called her name. One day while I was in our garden I looked up to see my  husband and kids standing at the back door telling me to look behind me and there was Bessy standing behind me in the garden. She often tried to make her way out of her fenced in pasture.  It wasn't hard to get her back when she was little. She like kicking up her back legs when she got out. Sad thing about it was when they took her to the butcher all they had to do was call her name and she got in the truck. I'd hate to look in the refridgerator and see Bessy wrapped up in little white packages next to Boss the pig.

I don't understand what is going on.  Riana, is this horse real or is it a horse  that is on your grand daughter's quilt?  Now Linda seems to be writing about real horses and dogs.

Horses and dogs are extremely smart animals for sure!! I once took care of a friend's Scottish shetland pony. He was a stinker! My friend's neighbor had an Egyptian Arabian and every time I got near it he would tell me to stay away because the horse was skittish. My friend told him that I was a horse whisperer and I'd have the horse calm within seconds. I was petting and talking to the horse within seconds and the man was in shock. When I was Civil War re-enacting another friend's horse knocked me on my butt when I didn't say hello to her by giving me a nudge in the small of my back. I never made the mistake of not saying hello to Penny again even if I had to stop in the middle of a conversation!  Another time I was smooth talking a Tennessee Walker at a re-enactment...he was a gorgeous horse!! Stood 17 hands. The next day he saw me a mile away and he wouldn't obey his rider until he came over to say good morning and get another carrot!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone here in the community know about my having to give up Indy and have learned that I've trained dogs. When I'm out walking, people bring their dogs to me to pet. I even get their dogs to sit calmly while I pet them or while we're talking. They keep asking me how I do it. I really don't know. I don't offer treats....just praise. This evening I ran into Jake (his daddy said to call him Jake from State Farm....LOL). He started to growl at me. I told him I'd been carrying around something in my walker for him but I hadn't seen him for a while so I gave it to another puppy. But if he waited for a minute I'd go in the house and get another one for him. (I make braided rope and/or fleece toys for dogs.) I sure got a lot of kisses when I gave Jake that toy!

He was wearing a red halter a few days ago, Linda. I think he must belong to someone. He's probably an escape artist. We once had a large dunn part draft horse that broke down fences to reach nicer clover, and a chestnut standard bred that could open the eye hook on his stall door. They are smart animals.

Comment by Linda Koller yesterday

What a beautiful horse!!!! Are you sure he doesn't belong to one of the wild herds??

Comment by Riana Noyes yesterday

Mary, he's not mine...l was trying to find out who he belonged to. Yesterday he came by again, and l got a photo before he ran off again. He's young and playfull, and thinks we're playing " catch me if you can!"

Comment by Mary Moore yesterday

Riana,  I am afraid your horse may have joined one of the wild horse herds over in Nevada.  If you could post a picture, Paul and I would drive over and look.  It would have to ride in the Motorhome with us.

Comment by Riana Noyes on March 26, 2021 at 9:10am

Oh...he must be looking for treats from kids...most horses have a sweet toothe,lol.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on March 26, 2021 at 4:21am

A Pinto just flew by going towards the school house, but I could not grab the red halter.

Comment by Linda Koller on March 20, 2021 at 11:48pm

Will keep my eye out for the missing pony!

Enjoy the scones, Mary and Paul! I gave some to Teresa and Mark along with some soda bread. They are finally getting to return home to Alaska in a couple weeks. I hate to see them go! They don't exactly want to spend another summer here in Arizona! The past two days have been 80 degrees plus.

Think I'll have another scone before bed!

Comment by Riana Noyes on March 20, 2021 at 8:41pm

Oh, man... now l want scones! Guess l'll be baking tomorrow,lol. We're actually experiencing some spring weather in Ontario! Not as nice as in Tiny Town, however, where blossoms are blooming in Stonehenge's apple orchard. Someone's pony came by and sampled the long grass there as well, but he left before l could get outdoors and grab the red halter he has on. Anyone in Tiny Town missing a pinto pony? 

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on March 20, 2021 at 4:25pm

So nice that you can have a nice lunch of scones and scrambled eggs.  I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

Comment by Mary Moore on March 20, 2021 at 4:15pm

Paul has Linda's scones in the oven...they smell heavenly.  We get them for lunch with scrambled eggs to be good.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on March 18, 2021 at 2:50pm

He was flagging him down. I new he was up to something. He must be a real joker.

Comment by Riana Noyes on March 18, 2021 at 9:12am

Barbara...did you notice he was chasing the Guiness beer truck ? lol

Comment by Barbara Hughes on March 18, 2021 at 8:42am

Also loved the seeing Riana's son in law in his Irish attire. 

Happy Belated St Patrick's Day!!
