    Hope eveyone is well...sure wish I felt better:/ Good thing is my son took 4the in his regional meet on Saturday. He wasn't happy about it but I'm still proud of him!

    Been so busy and now not feeling so haven't got to do anything with my ponies:( Tomorrow my son has a track meet, Friday night is our jam session at church and Saturday is my daughters dance competition!

    With all that being said, I probably won't get to ride till Sunday and we have a playday next Saturday, my kids are not going to be as ready for that as I wanted but it will be fun regardless!

    I swear my QH mare is retarted! In the area, that is now fenced off for a garden, there was a little area that had an old corner post, with about 6' of fencing that is about 3' from the fence that is surrounding the pasture. I caught Cat in there 4 times, standing in the little section, looking at me, like, mom come help! I had to push her nose to back her up to get out of there. You could tell she had been there for awhile. The little 6' fence is pipe, so no taking it down, unless I wanted to get out the cutting torch. It's now fenced off, no problem.
    WELL...... my DH brought home some heavy wooden crates from work, both over 30' long about 3' square. They are sitting out beside his shop until he can tear them down, and build whatever he's going to build with them.
    Last night I go out to feed, only 2 horses come up, I look around worred, Cat is due in May, I was hoping something hadn't gone wrong and she was down somewhere, then I look over to the other side of the pasture where the shop is (that will be fenced off from the pasture this summer), and there she stands, between the crates and the shop, looking at me, HELP! So I have to go crawl over the crate get in front of her, back her up the 30' to where it's big enough she can turn around and she runs to the grain!
    Why do I always get idiot horses! Can't figure out how to back up to get out of a corner, and one who won't load head first! My rescue mare, she'll back right into the horse trailer without any problem. She will NOT go in head first SMH!

    HAHAHAA! She is a bit crazy! It is the spring weather. It's doing weird things to their brains.

    This morning I got almost everything planted in the garden. Got a nice sunburn and weird tan lines going every which way but at least the majority of everything I was growing inside the house under lights is now in the ground, save for a few things that need a little extra time before they go in.

    I've been putting off washing my truck for a long time. In fact, it hasn't had a good wash in almost a year. It gets sprayed with the hose from time to time, but now even that won't get the dirt off - time for the good ol' rag and bucket routine.

    The older children of the neighboring property like to come and hang out on the backside of their lake they have on their 200 acre property, which just happens to be on our back fence, not 100 feet from the house. They have the entire place to roam, but they want to come hang out right there and do whatever it is college kids do - the problem is, we have game cams up in that are b/c that is where we've been shooting hogs on a regular basis.

    Now the college kids (even tho they can see our back porch from where they like to park and hang out) seem to enjoy taking a whiz or sometimes just stripping down right there in plain sight and don't bother taking a look around to see who might be relaxing on the porch at the time. So the deal is, what am I supposed to do with all of the nudie pics and video on my game cam? I've thought about mentioning it to them but then I just don't even know where to begin.......

    I wish my garden was planted. Still too early here, still frosty mornings and I'm too lazy to cover and uncover them! Lol If it doesn't rain, I may try to get some onions in this weekend... or maybe I should do that tomorrow before it rains!

    Got the truck washed! Hooray! Wasn't as bad as I thought. It will be dirty again the first time I drive out down the dirt road. I'll give myself a cookie for my effort, tho.

    Nu, don't forget that if you do plant and get an unexpected little frost, if you get out there first light before the sun shines on the plants, you can hose them off with the water hose and they will be fine when the sun comes up. But if they are still icy when the sun hits them, that's what kills them.

    My mom remembers living on the farm as a little girl and that was one of her chores in the late winter/early spring - getting out there and spraying the plants before 7 am when it was cold and she was right - it has saved my garden many a time.

    or youtube -

    Naaa so I just deleted them all - hopefully I won't have to see that again but if I do (after I put my 'GAME CAM IN USE' sign up on the tree) then I'll have to figure something out - I don't think they were intentionally trying to be weird - just drinking too much.

    Technology these days - there are game cams everywhere you go. So it is probably a good idea to take a look around before you, well you know, 'go'.
