Whoo hoo! Got my asparagus in - got them planted. All 50. Going to have stinky pee for life. TMI? LOL!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Did anyone feel that sudden jolt today? You know, as if the world suddenly stopped turning on its axis and came to a screeching halt? Hubby finally decided to clean the garage.

Yes, of course I help - I don't let him do it all alone - he'll never remember where he puts stuff so I have to witness it. I don't know the name of every tool, but if he describes it to me, I can tell him where it is. Hey - we are all good for something, right?

Hope you all are getting sunshine! Today was beautiful.

Big scare today. As I've been so focused on Gunnie and his eye, my visits to the pasture that badger is in have been less and less frequent. He's at a friend's on their 8 acres and we've got grass and he's plenty fat.

It had been a week today since I've been out there. Well, long story short ... he was gone ... a gap at the back of the pasture had been opened (by a human) and the series of gaps he then managed to find his way through could have put him anywhere.

Called the sherriff's office .. and a dozen or so calls later, they told me where he was ... actually an old friend of mine had been called to pick up a "stray horse" .. but the knew he belonged to someone because of his THREE brands.

Here's the kicker ... they picked him up ON MONDAY! My friends never noticed he was gone ... in a perfectly clear 8 acre pasture (1 tree) ...

Well, he felt terrible and I couldn't blame him ... it's my horse and I should have checked on him more often.

Alls well that ends well ... huh?

That's a crazy scare, TG. Glad he's well though as it could have been a different outcome.

Henny got some more acupuncture today and was such a good boy for all the needles. Everyone at the clinic was loving on him so I had a proud mommy moment :) He was so relaxed afterwards and was yawning up a storm. The sending exercises I've been doing has completely paid off. He is a complete pro at loading now. I stand to the side of the door, point into the trailer, and he eagerly hops in! Another proud mommy moment for me!

I am an open book and with Texasgal lurking on the forum I have no secrets or dignity. Kotex is your friend. A loyal blood stopping wound covering friend.
Its featured heavily in my first aid kit for my horses. Wonder Dust and Kotex are a wonderful combination. Still got covered in blood and kicked twice but I stopped the bleeding.
Scared the hell out of the UPS man as I walked up covered in blood.
Now I have to buy some more. Looking for the big blue box that resembles a mini suitcase. Shalom
