New pix: horses, dogs, barn. *PIC HEAVY*

Just wanted to share some new pictures that I got today and some others that I took just a few days ago but never posted.

Retirement pasture:

Nester with his fat butt

Zeiner. Retirement is agreeing with him. He has gotten much friendlier and fatter since he's been here.

Though it has been an adjustment for him. He went from being the alpha in his herd to near the bottom in mine. The only horse below him is Jesse, so they tend to hang around together.

Tiny, poor guy is having more trouble with his arthritis this year than he has in the past.


Then, on to the Jenny Craig paddock LOL. This is where we are keeping all the horses that are getting too darn fat. They just get regular grass hay instead of alfalfa.

Pokey, John, Dobe, Rafe, Koda, Bessie, Taz:

Dobe showing off his attitude.

Rafe hanging out with his 'cousin' Taz, there is exactly 3 hands difference in their height. Taz is 12.2 and Rafe is 15.2.

And Taz's poor little fugly self LOL

And this is one reason why I love rope halters so much. This is the same size that I use on all my others, even Rafe's big honkin' head.

And this is where the winter woolies on his back grows backward. It grows toward his withers instead of toward his butt like a normal horse.

His poor jacked up hind legs *shakes head*.

This is usually his favorite place to hang out, with his head stuck in a bale of hay.

And I managed to sneak up on him while he took a nap the other day.

And here are a few of our main dogs.

Coco: she's one of our older working dogs, she might have to be retired after next summer

This is Bill, our main man. He is one of the toughest son-of-a-guns that I have ever seen. He can handle more cattle by himself than any 5 normal Border Collies.

And these are Bill's offspring. This is the toughest group of dogs we've ever had at the same time.





And this is Jaycee, she is the oldest of our dogs (around 15, which is very old for a dog that has worked as hard as she has). She is the only one allowed to run loose all the time. She is the sweetest darling and will 'smile' every time she sees one of us.

And finally, I got some pictures of the freshly cleared off area for the barn. We just finished demolition on the rest of the tack room a few days ago so all that's left is the electrical box and the concrete slab.

This used to be where the door was. I wish there was a way to put some in the other side where the new door will be.

And here is where they stacked up the materials for the new barn just today. You would think that it would take more material than this to create a 36x100 foot barn LOL.

And this is the color that the trim and the sliding door is going to be. I opted for Marine Blue this time instead of brown like the old one.

Sorry I went a little picture happy but I was in a good mood today.

Anyway, that's my sad story.

I love those dogs! If you get an extra red one send it my way.

I can dang sure do it . Next time we have a litter you can get one if you like. We seem to have more red ones born than black ones anymore.

SUJ, Cinder, you are both more than welcome to come and visit (though John has to stay here ).

With my penchant for horses that are candidates for the Jenny Craig pasture... I will be heading down (and across lol). I'll even earn my keep! I don't eat much and I work hard. But I get to play with one of the big fuzzies!

LOL, come on down!! They could use someone to play with them as I haven't really had any time. Even Dobe, who isn't antisocial, but wouldn't usually follow me around either, follows me everywhere every time I go in the pen and he is getting a little protective of me. If any of the others get too close, he'll pin his ears, so he could certainly use a job for the winter.
