What do you think I should do w/them? Are they considered harsh? I would sell them but wouldn't want to contribute to a horses discomfort. Opinions?

    Not really odd, as it is a matter of simple genetics. Calico is created when two color genes are expressed (totoiseshell and white spotting together or black and orange together) at the same time. Since these particular color genes are found on the X chromosome, for both to be expressed, a cat must have 2 X chromosomes, meaning it must also be a female. Males will have XY, and the Y chromosome doesn't have the color genes.

    Once in a while a male cat can have Kleinfleldter's syndrome and have an XXY genotype. While these make cats can be calico, they are almost always sterile.

    OK, taking my science nerd hat off again...

    Farmchic- the filly is beautiful! I love her markings. What breed is she? (Sorry if you told us already and I missed it)

    CritterSitter - the kittens are adorable!

    Roadyy- it sounds like you had a fantastic day yesterday! Congratulations to you and the colt on a nice quiet first saddling. It sounds like he is going to be great to work with,

    NickerMaker - it sounds like you are really enjoying your summer holidays. Fantastic! Enjoy your visit to Margaritaville with Jimmy Buffett tonight!

    I finally feel like summer holidays are now in full swing! The weather has been great the past few days and I am getting tons done outside around the yard. Between Tuesday morning and this morning, I have weed whacked the entire perimeter of my pasture ( over 7 acres) clearing the grass and weeds from growing up the fence line, mowed the entire yard, including the septic mound which was over a foot high, washed and dried all the saddle blankets, got Sally to the vet for a teeth float and just finished harrowing the pasture and pulling weeds. I also scrubbed and disinfected the inside of my horse trailer and set 3 mole traps (Caddyshack is back on!).

    This afternoon I am taking a break and the kids and I are going to the public library to set up an ebook account. Later today, I have to worm all 4 horses and clean both geldings' sheaths (yuck!). Tomorrow we clean out the hay sheds to prepare to receive 400 bales at 7 am Saturday morning. I am hoping to get a ride in today and tomorrow as well.

    DH and I are also in the process of planning a motorcycle holiday the week after next. We plan on riding up to Dawson City in the Yukon and going over the Top of the World Highway into Alaska. I am very excited to see the Klondike area and the Arctic tundra, but also a little nervous about being gone for so long and riding so far. From here, it is over 6000 km round trip and we have only 8-9 days to do it, meaning we ride hard for 3 days to get there, spend a day in Dawson City and a day riding to Chicken, Alaska, followed by 3, 1000km days riding home. Fortunately, my parents are willing to come up to be with the kids and help with the acreage and the critters, so this is our chance to do it.
