AlexS I hope that the knife kid can behave. It has got to be hard. I know I foster animals and although they don't carry knives sometimes can be as hard to handle. But to bad you can't stick a kid in a kennel for a time out.


Roadyy I was hopping he would let a nice stinky one out for her.

Holding him for the farrier. Whats that for, nail steel shoes on the knife kid so you can hear him coming.

Being a PO is a thankless job and in a small town it does not make one any friends.

Now as for the rain dance you are all doing. Well get started again the rain stopped by 10-00am the suns out and its hot.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

I don't know who did the rain dance around here, but they need to stop! Got in from AZ last night, and am back in sweaters and rain boots to get to the grocery store. My tan is washing off...

You would be surprised who in society visits a PO during working hours and rides their horse on the same treks. Small town.

NZ rain dance: tights/leggings/chaps/chafs or what ever they are called and a short grass skirt is the correct dress code. Post a photo. It may not bring rain but a tear to the eye is on the cards.

Ugh that's tricky Stan. I have some of the kids parents who hate me and disagree with everything, then others want to be my best friend. One of the current ones Mom is like that, she holds my arm when she talks to me - I don't do touching with people outside of my family.

Stan do you grow or buy hay? I am worried about what you are going to do for hay this year, as you have had such terrible weather. Is it possible that you can start stocking up now, before everyone else does?

When it comes to the cases I deal with I tend to have the worst and the nut bars. I am the most experienced with the ones others can not deal with, also until last year was the court probation prosecutor so am not liked.

As for hay we are feeding it now and have been for the last two months. As luck would have it a friend has a paddock we can put the horses on week about through the coming winter. We don't get any snow here its called the winterless north but one never knows whats in store this year.

If we don't get a decent amount of rain over the coming few weeks there will not be any autumn growth. That will mean a lot of riding in the evenings and alowing the horses to eat the grass on the road verge. Animals are breaking out of their paddocks looking for food so one has to be aware when driving at night. Also its the first time I have seen empty paddocks. No stock, it has been sent to slaughter.

However with the right kind of rain dance being performed by montana all will be well. He just has to get out of his long johns and into tights.
