    Surely we could recognize a baby ... even in the mud. So he has four MUD stockings and a blaze.

    I could have driven up there and taken the pics myself by now....

    (wish we had some mud ... it's a dust bowl down here)

    Happy Easter everyone!
    DBA I am also patiently waiting for pics! He sounds adorable.
    EMS you're making me want to run to the store tomorrow to pick up some of the discounted Easter candy:) Caramel filled chocolate bunnies yum!
    Not much going on here, just a rain shower here and there. My two are shedding out pretty quickly this year. Took my mare out to the local lake again Friday since I had the day off. Couldn't find anyone to go with So we just tagged along with a kiddie ride.
    I learned that she won't spook at a reclining bicycle. We were only out for about an hour but at least she got out in a different location with new horses again.
    I second the idea for a North Texas get together! And I will be sure that pics will be
    Taken

    Yes, Happy Easter from this maroon town - altho everything I see is GREEN finally. No rain yet, but it looks promising this afternoon. Planting sunflowers today and ornamental gourds along the fence today before the rain.

    My 1 mile cardio trail in the back of my property (where the pig chased me last week) got a face lift. Hubby somehow managed to get thru the creek with the skidsteer and brush hog attachment and made my single foot trail about 5 foot wide all the way through (for the most part) Yee haw! Altho he did flatten a few of my jumps along the way but who's complaining? Now just need to move some of the dead brush out of the way and no more getting slapped in the face with youpon.

    My kiddo has the lovely STAR tests next week and it totally dampens the mood of Easter and egg hunting - it is a tense house I live in right now and it won't end until the end of the week. She tells me that almost everyday somebody runs out of the room to vomit from the stress. They are really pushing them at school. I'm on the fence with this one - there's good and bad involved - so I'm just tending to my own to get her thru it. Gotta love Algebra!

    Either muddy or dusty - everybody have a great one!

    Cc .. that pig story gives me the creeps .. they are soooo mean.

    Well, I lunged and then rode Gunnie Thursday. Lunged him and did some ground work with him on Friday. Then DH slid up on him bareback. He didn't know what to think about that, so we just let him stand there until he fell asleep. Then I walked him around with DH sitting on him. The he stopped him, backed him, and even moved him laterally off the fence one time. I call that success.

    He's still so green (both of them) .. but we aren't in a hurry.

    BTW ... I think the mare is just transitioning. No more discharge but she is HATEFUL. I want my sweet mare back. I've also noticed her neck got cresty last year ... an still is this year. I wonder if we are dealing with wacky hormones.

    Alright guys, I unfortunately seem to be in need of your assistance yet again.

    Most of you have seen stories of Kenzie, our little fostered Throughbred filly. She's 16, almost 17 months old- and has battled a huge amount of illnesses, injuries, and neglect problems. I won't go into the whole story now, but you can find them in 'Stunted Yearling- will she ever be normal?' thread, and in our current thread- It just doesn't END. Kenzie has been mutilated. .

    What I need it somewhere for Kenzie to go. With all that has happened she needs to get out of here. We have possible arrangements for her to go cross-country, but I know that would be taxing on her body and there are so many of us in Texas. If any of you know someone who is willing to take in a neglect case, please do let me know. I can't promise that she'll be a great horse, or that she's even ever going to look normal again after what happened, but I know that she's a fighter, and that when she isn't terrified for her life, she's been a very sweet and forgiving little yearling. She is currently about 395 lbs and 12.2hh. The only costs would be a small adoption fee as a formality (which in the right circumstances may be waived) and transportation to wherever she will be going. I will take care of pre-sale vet checks and any injections or whatever that she may need.

    I haven't been keeping up - I guess i'll go check it out...........

    Well, we got a sprinkle here and there, but not enough. I will still have to water the garden this eve. Did some more bush whacking, clearing and burning and we managed to clear out a nook on the edge of the woods just behind the house for the trampoline. There is no way in the world to make a trampoline look nice in a yard no matter what you do. Well now it's in a clump of brush with a little trail that goes to it and the kids love it b/c they've got their own little 'nook' to play in.

    Cleaned up around the dog graves (which are near the trampoline now) - going to try to figure out what to plant on top of them. I don't like actual grave markers but was thinking about planting something like a flowery shrub or other large plant that DOES NOT appeal to horses. Problem is that most things WILL APPEAL to goats. So now trying to think of something....

    I wish I could take Kenzie in, I'd do it in a heartbeat. Unfortunately I already have my hands full with Henny. ): I will definitely see if anyone I know would want to adopt her, though.

    We got POURED on earlier today. Gave the ground a nice soaking. And we finished building my new tack shed! I love it :)
