    Good idea! DH's birthday is next week.

    Here is a link for cuteness reference. See "White Sauce" (temporary name). I live the white stripe on his one brown ear.

    That puppy is entirely too cute!!!

    Stan, I'm sorry you had a bad horse day. I also had a bad horse day. My horse was psycho on our ride. Don't shoot the horse. If you have to, hook a winch to her halter, run a rope through to the front of the float, and drag her in. She'll be less likely to be dead than if you shoot her.

    Cute pups Not sure on the name White Sauce and nothing came to mind.

    I have had a bitch cauld salome and two dogs Taj, and Trampus. Taj was huge more like a mastive in size than a boxer but was pure bred.

    Taj he had a werd sence of protection. Going back some years now 45. Sitting on the couch next to the squeeze of the day (girl friend) I quite liked her and it seems so did Taj.

    He pushed his way inbetween myself and the object of OUR affection. Sitting between us he looked me in the eye and growled. Not an I'm going to bite you growl, just deep in his chest rumbling. Hands off was the message. I got up and made a coffee, while she, Kay, tried not to wet her self laughing.

    Want all those puppies, their little smushed faces are just too much.

    Do not do the soup diet if you care about those around you. I worked with a bunch of ladies who did it once, I have never been a worst smelling place in my life.

    It's official, I am unable to clean any more. I am exhausted, and was so hungry earlier, I almost lost my footing. Am done, Mum will just have to deal.

    The day started out sunny and hot and it is now very windy and cloudly. Smells like rain but the monsoon season does not.start for another 2-3 weeks. Its just teasin us right now.
    Took some photos of my horses in the wind. Geisha, the sooty Palamino and Shadow the standoffish Appy. Threw in a photo of my cute 12 week old Lionhead bunny, Primrose.
    The wind was upsetting her so I broughy her in and she's is running around in a baby playpen right now. She only goes out during the day and sleeps in the house. She is pretty spoiled.

    I have a white Silkie as well, right now she is no where near that pretty. She has been setting a nest and so far has had one chick hatch. Its been three days and I am nit silure the others are going hatch. It was a community nest and I have a mixed flock so each chick is.usually pretty unique.

    NVR, I love your chicken..I've seen them at county fairs. Fluffy was the first name that came to me.....


    My mom has layers and meat chickens...when I do chores I love picking eggs! Lol. Those meat ones are lookin tasty too!

    Sorry Stan you had a bad day. We used to put a rope around the butt of the horse who wouldn't go in and use it to help push....I'm sure you've tried that....

    Um roadyy....I think that horse is more for you...than your wife.....a barrel horse???? them guys can be WACK-jobs!!

    Can I keep talking about yesterday? . When I was trying out horses...I gotta great lift of self esteem....which ever horse I rode, I was able to control to the fullest extent. I don't know why over the years I lost my riding confidence....but I did. Deep down, if I can find it....I KNOWi can ride anything someone puts me on.....but that confidence is hard to locate!!! anyway, not only did I get a horse...I gained some confidence!!!!

    I am also glad I went by myself....it's wierd I guess, but I have a newer horse friend that I kinda turn to when looking for horses..she has helped....and I truely appreciate her help....but I also think she is a bit of a horse snob.....I know when she meets my new guy she will make a face...he's not perfect, I know....but neither am I, nor have any of my other horses been. She a AQHA person......so she's had only the best of the best...I can't afford that, nor do I want that. In fact, I think, misfit horses, like dogs from a kennel, love you more than life bc they know you did something for them!!! . Also, she makes me feel a bit unworthy...when you know what???? I've problably ridden longer than she has been alive!!! I discredit myself sometimes too much......ok, enough about my weaknesses!

    Hey hung out with my sis and dad today! You know when your dad is getting senile when he gossips about you when you're RIGHT there!!!! Hahahaha. Gotta go with it!!

    OMG!!!!!! I just got a text.....Jay Jay is being delivered TOMORROW morning!!!!. I figured Monday or Tuesday! Yikes, I don't have his stall ready!! this is SO exciting!!!


    Ok, talk to me people....do you usually keep the new guy in for a day or two to get acclimated before putting them together? Our stalls are kinda open, so,they can get nose to nose very easily when in or if I let Rainn out, which she is used to....

    Yay!!! Fantastic news!!

    I usually put a new horse in an adjacent pen for a bit first to let them get acquainted before moving in together. That said, as long as there is enough room for the less dominant horse to get out of the way safely, they could also be put together right off the start. Just be sure to avoid a situation where one horse can get cornered or boxed in by the other. Expect lots of squeals and noise for a bit while they establish a pecking order.
