    Finally home where I can upload pics then I'm going to crash!!!!

    Here's the little black filly that I couldn't get pics of last time,,,

    For some reason didn't get any pics of the bay filly. I sat down in the pasture and she was very curious but everytime I moved she hid behind momma. So I got a couple of Magic, he's sooo cute

    And laying out for a tan:)

    Mornin' guys! So, do y'all remember that little filly I told you about? The one that we rescued from having her leg trapped under the board in the stall? She is horribly underweight, and the day before yesterday I discovered she is COVERED in lice!!! She still hasn't dropped her coat. (Bo says he wormed her.) Anyways, yesterday morning dh asked the barn owner if he would take $100 right now for her, and he said yes, so dh handed him the money!! She is now ours and will be coming to TX with us! We are going to catch her and get her put up and wormed and cared for. My daughter is just thrilled to pieces, this is her filly!! She is special to us anyways, she was born on my b-day last year (May 30) while the BO was out of town, and we cared for them and gave her the enema, etc.

    Here's a pic from the morning after she was born



    And a pic from yesterday :(

    She's going to be cute! She's probably really anemic - I've had that problem before with goats that get infested with lice and worms - their hair coat looks bad for about 3-6 months. How old is she? Will she eat feed that you could put some Red Cell on? Just thinking of ideas.

    Well I had a great Saturday UNTIL the evening. Went out for a late dinner at Texas Roadhouse. Waitresses/waiters drop plates all of the time - no big deal - especially on really busy and packed Saturday nights right? So when you hear plates crash, you don't even look up anymore - just keep on visiting and eating.

    Until last night -I heard the plates crash right next to me but I didn't look up - I wasn't going to make the waitress feel even more embarrassed by being a rubber necker...

    First I heard the crash - then I realized that the moment of silence that usually follows was taking a little too long, then I realized CRAP they really just dumped an entire order of food on me. Scalding hot food all in my hair and left side and all in my lap. YES - it landed on me. Two steaks, mashed potatoes, sweet taters, chicken fried steak and gravy, shrimp and various sides with french fries.

    Got it all cleaned up but my clothes were soaked - we were done eating so we just left - the folks sitting around us were sympathetic but I wasn't too upset so we all laughed it off -

    I've had drinks spill on me, but not an entire order for a table of four. That's a first.

    Yikes clippity that sounds awful! Did you at least keep the steaks that fell in your lap??

    Kc, I love that mare's frosting! She is beautiful!

    Db, I must come and see those babies, they are beyond cute!

    If it would ever stop raining we are going to try to catch the filly and get her stalled. She isn't halter broke, but we will get that handled in no time. She has an easy going disposition so I don't think she'll be any trouble. She may flip over once or twice at the worst but after that I expect she will be fine.
    We plan to hit her with Zimecterin Gold and put on another application of lice treatment. The BO already put one dose (one dose is all that it requires)on her, but I would feel better doing another. My skin is still crawling after seeing those things....horrifying.

    I really wish he would just stop breeding his horses and get rid of some that he has. It's so frustrating seeing it every day. This little filly literally stood and withered away into hardly anything and there was no need for it!! He doesn't handle any of his foals until time to break them either. They are wild and trying to catch them when necessary is a joke. For instance catching one to work it or treat lice turns in to such a fiasco! Forget any feet trimming or vet care. He had his go back in the day breeding high dollar horses, but that time has come and gone and now he is just like any other byb.
