Apparently TG shared because we got some rain today, too. :) It cooled everything down but man was it HUMID. The boys got some watermelon today. Picky Henny actually ate a few pieces before turning up his nose!

The boys went in for a vet visit yesterday. Got some updated radiographs of Henny's feet. They're better, but we've still got some progress to make. Nothing bad or urgent, though! :) Bubba got his Coggins pulled and West Nile shot. We were prepared this time and stuck him in the stocks(he cow-kicked my vet last time :/) and he was dancing in place the whole time, but no one was kicked! Henny also got his semi-annual West Nile and Flu Rhino shots and stood like a champ without anything! He's such a pro about taking shots and stuff like that. Makes me a proud horse mommy <3

I am gonna have to cancel my chick order, though. ): After the vet visit, I am broooooke. And we're gonna be needing to buy hay in the next month or so, so gotta save up for that. But on the bright side, Foxy and Willow are getting along now! They cuddle together to sleep and Willow follows Foxy everywhere! It's adorable.

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

Had a great ride tonight! My katt lady was awesome. She worked great and the flag didn't bother her at all:)

Oh I will happily send you some. Happily. We are saturated and it is running off not sinking in. I empty full buckets at least twice a day. We are usually in a pattern of scattered showers at this point not every day down pours multiple times. Grass looks great though....

Kay, great to hear how well Henny did at the vets. Maybe he'll rub off on his buddy after a while :)

KC, that's great! Reminds me I need to do some more flag work too, though last time it didn't phase her.

TG, I guess you sent us a little too. It rained everywhere but on us yesterday, though my car was wet this morning, so I guess we got some overnight. Yeay!

We worked on the trailer a little bit, it will look all sorts of spiffy once we are done, I tell you Little girl also followed my in with no hesitation. Still didn't get her back feet in, but wasn't focused on that. Just want her to step in and out without rushing out and hesitating. She is doing really well.

Gave Cash Saturday off, after our crappy Friday ride - just turned him out into the grassy arena while I cleaned his paddock. Went back to ground driving Sunday. He did fantastic so I was about to put him up, then he took off, completely out of the blue and completely out of character. Caught him and worked for a few minutes to find a good end note. Then he got all worked up when I tried to lead him. So again we worked to find a good end place. We were both exhausted and drenched in sweat by this time. This is not my usual, quiet little guy.

Hosed him off and hand grazed to cool down. When I finally went to put him up, two ponies had managed to get in Cash's paddock and were eating his hay. Chased them out and got about 50 yards away before I heard squealing - those devils had snuck back under Cash's paddock fence. One was finishing the hay, one had Cash cowering in a corner while he bit and kicked the crap out of him. Chased them out again and got one of the barn workers to pen those obnoxious pests up and replace my horses' breakfast. Cash has bite marks all over his rump & hocks, so I'm quite pleased he managed to get in one good two-hind-hooves kick to that **** pony. Pretty crappy day at the barn, overall.
