The good, the bad, and the ugly...

It is nights like these you wonder why you love horses so much. Haha

Today consisted of horses pulling down fencing, truck overheating, two flat tires on a trailer with 3 horses inside, realizing people who you have done favors in the past will never jump in to help you in return, thunder and lightening, mustang refusing to be caught despite her normal ease in being caught, more rain, surprise abandoned kittens, more rain, daughter throwing up, and now...why am I not asleep??

Ahhhh. Then I remember that amazing little foal nibbling on my fingers in the trailer, and I remember again why I love horses so much. Yes...all the pain, rain, and sweat are worth it. I love my horses.

...anyone need a kitten?? XD

Ain't it grand? After days that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemies, it seems that just listening to the horses munch their hay and grain, the quiet snuffling, it just makes it all better.

Everyone is great today. I will upload pictures tonight after all my errands.

I am so glad she settled in quickly.

Haha. Oh yes!

But it could have been worse. We were thinking a couple times that we were going to have to unload the horses, lead them away from the interstate, and reload them in another trailer, baby and all.

Kinda glad it didn't end up with that as a solution.

On a happier note, I think my colt is going to be bombproof against cars and tire drills (or whatever they are called). Lol!

Wow that's a loaded night :P. Horses seem to have "perfect" timing, when they want to do something terrible.

Oh of course. I'd already stated that the mustang mare was really easy to catch and was super sweet. >_<

I was really stupid, though. I stalled her yesterday during the day, but let her out with the others while I left the property to go help with the trailer. (I wasn't much help. My spares were too large.)

I think horses know when you need them to show off their good qualities. That's usually when they are going to refuse. >_<

But baby and momma are pastured and having fun grazing on the rain soaked grass. And my QH mare is SO much more curious about the baby than I thought. I was really worried she'd hate a foal, but she walks to the fence and nickers to him. Maybe she'll make a good mom after all!
