Well, don't get excited today😡😡😡😡!!
This is what she did to us today (be prepared for many pictures).
Once again she decided to sleep in, so we had to drive down the tree line and find her, Lady and Cowboy were already out in the pasture waiting on us. I didn't get as excited today as I did yesterday! We got them to the round pen for breakfast and the normal routine. Sage was grumpy and didn't want to be touched, but what else is new. When I went to check out her udder I noticed just how big (read fat) she is. Does any one remember Bugs Bunny's horse? DH doesn't know what I'm talking about and I couldn't find it online, but Sage is fat!
So her bag is getting bigger, no wax, no milk, but we noticed she kept swishing her tail and hitting her stomach (there are no flies out today). She walked away from DH when he tried to rub her and that is her favorite thing! She got her "King of the Hill" feeding while I worked with Cowboy and DH worked with Lady.
Cowboy is working on patience, and standing quietly, but it's rough when your 5 months old 😜!
We are still just happy to brush Lady.
Sooo, Sage always eats her last bit of grain and tries to get Cowboys, I guard it, blah, blah, blah. Same thing every day. Sage is queen and Lady depends on her for protection, Sage hangs around and waits on them. Today she left them, not went to the pond for a drink, I mean took off and left. Normally Lady would freak out and would have ran after her, but she just watched her. When we left Lady and Cowboy followed us to the gate, which they have never done! So of course we just knew Sage was going off to have the foal!!!
We went to feed Cactus and do our thing with her.
All this time hoping we were having a baby on our land 5 miles away!!!! It takes us usually about an hour or 2 to do what we need to do with Cactus.
By the way, I had to take this picture today if my sons paint, there is a thread on here on how to keep your paint/horse clean?!? Arrow didn't get the memo, he likes multicolors!
Anyway, we went back and there was Sage!!! No baby!!! So we just took stupid horse pictures to entertain ourselves!
I wish, my dad, who is NOT a horse person called this afternoon while we were back out there and told me he decided she wasn't pregnant it was just a grass belly and her udder was just swelling...lol. I told him I was about to agree. Posted via Mobile Device
