He is "purebred" (as much as the term can apply) Australian Cattle Dog, or red Heeler as some call them. I learned my lesson on naughty little dogs with Max, my cardigan corgi.

Hoss is just a very young puppy not even 12 weeks yet. The guy I got them from was quite an inexperienced breeder and decided he wanted them out of his house at 5 weeks. I hate that he docked the tail though. We had some sort of miscommunication on that an he had the vet dock them right after birth.

I'm still hoping his ears will finish standing up as his coat is not yet fully shed the white puppy color yet. If they don't, I may have that fixed when he is neutered.

I see it now! Lol. That last pic threw me off with the perspective. It made his legs look shorter than they probably are. He's freaking adorable!

Thumbs down

I'm not looking forward to the rainy weather this weekend, it's also going to rain most of the week too. Next Friday we could have a frost which is unheard of in Alabama in May.

Being horseless is the pits!!

Lucas met a bag of carrots for the first time today, I know I am a bad horse mom, but I don't treat him as he used to be mouthy. He came off the track, so I think it was probably his first carrot, he is 8.

But he was so good yesterday for the dentist and I went to the grocery store before the barn. I called him, his head peaked up but he didn't move. So I walked to him, and gave him half a carrot, he wasn't sure what it was at first and just sniffed a good while, then he got it. I walked back to my BO and my beer, my barn is kind of relaxed and as long as you are not riding, there are beers in the fridge.

Thump thump behind me, Lucas is trotting up behind me. I am suddenly The Best Person In The World.

He didn't get mouthy, and as long as it stays that way, he can have more.

Alex, you're not a bad horse mom at all. Many people contribute to their horses being mouthy, without even thinking about it.

HorseLovin, just don't get sick again with the crappy weather.

CCH, that puppy is adorable!

Thanks aforred, when I got him, he was only 5 and just very mouthy with everything. He holds his lead rope when I walk him etc. I gave him a treat once, and he about knocked me over after that looking for them. Oh no.

The day after holidays, he gets off cuts of carrots and parsnips but they go in with his feed.

But he has matured and learned that I don't do pushy horses so I think he can have them now, I just got in the habit of not giving them to him.

I had a major come-apart today. DS's dad sometimes thinks he doesn't need to send child support when he's supposed to, and right now, money's tight. I try not to make a big deal out of it, but we had this conversation a week ago. I told him I needed him to send it when he's supposed to, and he flakes on me!

So I just want to say thank you to everyone on the horse forum. You guys keep me entertained and help put things in perspective. I always feel better when I've been on here! (My silver lining for the day.)

Ems - the hatching pics are fantastic! I showed DD and she thought they were the coolest thing ever.

CCH - cute pup! We had a blue heeler (and corgis) when I was a kid. Heeler was very smart and the corgis, well, they were just too darn cute for words except for when my mom raised a litter and put them in a 3 sided playpen...they ate the wall that was the 4th side while she was at work one day lol. When DD gets a bit older I plan to get her a corgi pup.

So last night driving home from soccer practice I ended up behind a car with personalized plates that said "GT BACK". I really needed a pa system to share some wisdom with that driver. My advice, you probably wouldn't need a pissy license plate for tailgaters if you weren't driving 40 IN A 55 DOWN THE HIGHWAY. Speed up dude, just sayin'. Pretty sure if I'd have been in the beast pickup I'd have been seriously on his butt just for giggles (and I may or may not have followed him farther than I needed to go)

They hatched! A whole nest full of fuzzy cuteness!! I brought one inside for the kids to see. Lucinda is very accepting of me around the nest and handling them, the kids....not so much LOL. Hank (Daddy) is standing guard as well. He loves me and invites me over but goes after the kids or anyone other than DH.

Squeeee! That is a lot of fuzzy cuteness! Our chicks should be arriving next week. DD is so excited. Her chicken tractor & a-frame are almost ready, have to put chicken wire over the a-frame yet so they don't become coon or hawk dinner. Will get some pics in a bit to share. It's a pretty neat set up. My dad built it for her as a birthday gift. Gotta love grandpa! Her only complaint was that it is grey, she feels her chicken "barn" should be painted red to match my barns.
