This is the lower front corner of the pasture looking forward from the barn.

not sure if you can see them without zooming in, but I couldn't get any closer with my phone camera due to sinking in the soft ground and not having my water boots on.

You can see the pond over the fence in the first pic and she is using this flooded part of the pasture as a kiddie pond to keep them safe. She will occasionally bring them just over the fence and into the pond for short amounts of time.

Hi CW! Why do you have to move??? Did you find a place?
I am off to the doctors again to see about my arm as it is still rather swollen and oddly hard. Its like an extra elbow.

CW--Swan?? lol Duck darlin and I don't mean dropping your head...hahaha
I hope the move goes smoothly with the bad leg,..


Hunter65,

I hope it isn't anything serious. Let us know as soon as you can.


I guess this weekend will be filled with digging the trench from the pond over to the drainage deeper to get the pond down more. Doctoring on Boo and work Trusty some as well as giving all of them a bath and soak down with ACV to see if it will help with the flies.

I'll be back on tomorrow til 3 while here at work then wont be back online probably til Monday. I never have time to log on at home, yet so much of it while at work...Seems wrong on so many levels....

Roadyy I like your ducks. Saw some ducks on the trail last week sitting on the ice at the edge of the creek. They were super cute. Last time I past by that same spot, the creek was really roaring as the snow was melting. But, no ducks to be seen. Likely too much rough water for them. My Paint horse prefers ducks that are at rest and not flapping and quacking in front of him. Saw a beautiful hawk today, not sure what kind exactly. The hawk flew by in front of my car on my way to the barn. He/she was quite striking.

Hunter65,
You should wrap the arm in a baby blanket and walk around with a bottle because you might get rather strange looks from people if you tried to breast feed it...not the guys I'm sure, but you get the jest of it....lmbo

Painlover1965,
I know what you mean about the flapping ducks, but Trusty isn't too trusting of parrots calling from a carport along our trek around the neighborhood more so than ducks flapping...Seems its the birds he can't see rather than the ones he can..lol I doubt he has ever seen a parrot and probably thought it was a predator sounding off their attack hollar.

I did my best to get him to go forward past the driveway, but ended up having to back him past it. It was a sight as this little girl about 5 and her mom were in there yard across the way watching and thought it was cool to see this horse and rider going around in circles and backing up. Guess they thought I was putting on a show just for their benefit...in the end I guess I was...

Roady- i hope Boo is continuing to heal up well. I also love your swan pictures! The water however looks like a mosquito breeding ground . We get trumpeter swans in huge numbers some years and Canada geese every year. The Canada geese have been arriving here for the past couple of weeks. They lay and hatch their eggs here and then leave to go North when their young can fly. I am sure I can hear the females scorning the males about not checking the weather forecast. I feel bad for them as there isn't much in the way of uncovered food or good nesting sites with all the snow. I am tempted to set up a nesting box deeply bedded with straw and good supply of grain down by the shelter of the trees. It isn't the best for the geese though and they freak the horses right out.

Hunter - look after that arm. I bet it's tender to touch.

Stan - how I wish I could ship you some moisture. At this rate there is a chance the wind is strong enough here to maybe blow some all the way down to you.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. If you wear a grass skirt to bring on the rain, what do you wear to chase away the winter?

Reference picture out my kitchen window at 8 am this morning. This little goody is supposed to bring us another 20 cm of fresh snow by tomorrow afternoon.
