I haven't been ignoring y'all, just had to work a few more days than planned. One of our colleagues was getting on our nerves complaining about the workload and how tired she was, being a real grouch. Well she began getting dizzy and so went to her doctor, who promptly put her in the hospital for testing since she is extremely anemic and had to be transfused! There is opportunity for more hours ($$$) but I have to get some time off before school starts or I will be the grouchy one
Monday I'm moving my horses after less than a month at the current boarder. Just didn't work out for several reasons, but mostly because I found a family taking in a few boarders so they can do property improvements. My two horses will have a three acre pasture to themselves with adjacent stalls and they will feed in the a.m. Will be nice to be able to sleep in a little later when school starts and not have to worry about hay in my hair, mud, or horse drool on me as I go to work!
Oh and now I can join in on the chicken chat since they have a guinea hen with chicks at the new farm
I know, they aren't chickens, but close enough...
They are in a cage up in the little barn right now. Can't wait to see them at work once they are let loose. Do Great Danes work as LGD's? Hope so! They have several on the property.
Have been working with our favorite resident trainer Palogal with Eli. He has issues with lunging clockwise for the past several months, to the point that he was becoming aggressive with me when asked to go in that direction. Charged me a couple of times, and once when I backed him up to correct him he reared up. That was when I got Palogal on board
apparently for whatever reason, he is awkward and uncomfortable, very stiff going clockwise. I went back and watched a video I did a while back and it's obvious. So we are working on just bending him and moving that shoulder over. Who knows maybe it is just him or maybe he injured himself in the pasture...
Enjoy the weekend everyone! Temps in the low 90's
