Montana keep that dance going its beginning to work.

It is raining, light, not a drought breaker, but its wet and with a little luck the clouds that are hanging over us at this time will be slow moving.

I need a down poor to get the tanks up a little, but the land needs a dampening for a day then a deluge to get it thoroughly wet. Don't want much do I.

If this is the start it will take 6 weeks for the grass to come back and I have just brought in more hay so they are going to be locked up in the weight loss paddock and fed hay and suplements.

As I write this I hear a cat meow, a thump, and his head appeares fleetingly at the window. James is trying to get inside by jumping in the window he used last night, which I have now closed.

Glad to hear that you are getting some rain-hope it's enough to put some in your tanks & maybe water your pastures. We are warming up quickly here, but may get some rain again next week, although the last time rain was predicted,it didn't happen. I start my orientation later this afternoon and hopefully will find out my work schedule. Should be 2 back-to-back nights, after some training on procedures.

Hope you enjoy the new job, ccg.

We are getting rain again that started at 9 this morning. They say it is going to be here through tomorrow evening.

Back to work this week and impatiently waiting for next year's job postings to come out (since I am officially surplus as of June 30).

Enjoyed a beautiful Easter weekend with some nice spring weather. Unfortunately winter isn't done with us yet as they are forecasting 10-15 cm of snow on Friday/ Saturday. Really? It's freaking April already and I need to get my barn up! We still have a good foot of snow out in the field and its been melting for a week already. On a positive note, I did finally find my missing 75 gallon water trough peeking out from under a snow bank. Stan, I'm really trying to send some of this moisture your way. Maybe I can mail it to you?

Evenings are getting long here now so my daughter and I took advantage of yesterday's beautiful weather and went for a hack. We made it out of the yard and down the road about a half kilometre before her mare had a fit. This isn't bad considering how uptight her mare gets when she's out in new places. Hopefully next time we will make it a little further. We finished off with a good workout in the field. If the mare wasn't going to behave on the clear, dry roadway, then she could work her but off in 16" of heavy wet snow. Soon enough she will get with the program. My old man Sam was a gentleman as always, but very much out of shape. Hopefully these little excursions will slowly and gradually bring his 22 year old muscles back into shape for some serious trail riding this summer.

I hope everyone has a great week!

Good morning And evening to those who are on the other side.
I hope you all have a great day/evening.

I am fighting a torn tendon in my arm I guess I over did it. It hurts but with the pressure band on and me babying it a little I will survive.

My daughter has her first track meet today I am not allowed to go though BOO.
I gave her a shiny rock this morning and told her good luck.. She asked what the rock is for.. I told her its a worry stone. She just looked at me weird.. hmmmmm

Hubby ended up having to do a photo shoot for him as the World Champion Appaloosa heritage show in 2007 he had to dress in complete Indian headdress and paint. I have a picture here some place of the photo shoot I will have to find it.
I found the picture of hubby posing for the magazine
His Father was supposed to pose but was getting that face reconstruction from the mare biting his face off..

One of the horses found a weak spot in the fencing and four of them got out before the fifth one realized it. Apparently he didn't see where they got out so he thought it a good idea to try and jump the fence to get to them. Looks like he didn't gt his back half over and got pretty scuff up down his back half. He has scraps in a couple of spots on his back so I assume he either went over on his back or twisted over on the fence. Worst spot is on the front of his rear left leg and the rest is mostly superficial.

I was up late last night with him and am exhausted for this half day of work before going tend to him some more...I'll get some pics this evening.

Oh it was BooBoo that did it. The one in my avatar.

I still can't believe she cut his hair that way...

Who cut his forelock? I always liked long forelocks to help w/keeping the flys out of the eyes. Hope your other horse heals quickly.

DW cut his forelock...She said she did it to get it out of his eyes... I was furious when I came home from work and saw it. She did it to one of the other geldings as well.

The one in the pic is the one who got all boogered up.
