Dental treatment for the horse, does the expence of owning a horse ever reduce to a managable level or like a teenager there is always something to pay out for.
A day off work today, lucky i'm a governement employee I get to take leave on pay and take Bugs to the dentist. But it washes out in the end, I did 12 hours on Monday coupled with the rest of the week of 8 hours each today has cost me only 4 hours and if I get up early on Saturday and instead of riding a horse go to work for 4 hours all will be even. Except for the bill expected to be in the hundreds. I'm not sure which cost the most, keeping a wife happy or the horse. The choices a man has to make. Enough of the rambling I hear you scream. I know into the corner again for the cheep shot
Back to the dentist I'll get a better idea of his age. We put him at rising 7 years but with the high pitched voice I have my doubts. I'll get a few photos should have character to them.
How is the economy affecting you all. NZ has to be one of the most expensive country to live. Exported meat from here is cheaper overseas than in NZ also milk. Our housing cost is through the roof and unaffordable by the average couple now. You can't give away a v8 and 6 cylinder cars are well down in price, but we can not afford the fuel to run them.
I have told my employer we should do our job on horse back. Tied up in a paddock the offenders could colect the droppings. A barrow load a day for the average horse. And bag it. Now that would give those that have been sentenced to community service some thing meaningful to do and the governement could sell the pony poo for a few dollars a bag thus killing two birds with one stone. Providing community service for those convicted and making money to self fund the horses.
But no it would not be polictically correct to have convicted persons shovelling flark into bags without safety equipment, yet we do it all the time without getting sick. And the convicted persons tell a lot of Flark when mounting a defence for their wrong doing.
That should have taken your mind off the cheep shot earlier so now its catch Bugs give him a wash, a cut and pollish and off we go. To the dentist.
