@TuyaGirl , just glad TJ didn't need to take a whiz while I was under there! LOL
The first baby bird I stuck back in the nest was very cooperative, yesterday's baby bird not so much plus cussed me out for picking it up. Tonight they were all 4 in their nest like good little birds. It's amazing how fast they grow. And yes it was me complaining about flies. Only the one wasp sting but I have fly bites all over me and they itch like mad. Anti-itch creams work about as long as fly spray does.

Congrats to your hockey team! Tuya looks like she has made a friend in the mare herd.

@PoptartShop , so how sore are you from your workout? Do you have a big announcement to make about next year? Yes, I'm reading between the lines and I'm wrong more often than not. LOL Good luck with getting rid of those 10 pounds. Not that I think you need luck to do it or that you need to lose those pounds, I think you're pretty just the way you are.

Love the zoo pics. One of the times I went I took my niece and there was a baby camel that took a liking to me. They had it in a pen that you could get all the way around and no matter which line of fence I went to, it would come over and lick me or taste my hair. Wouldn't have a thing to do with my niece, which made her mad. However the free ranging ducks and geese liked her better. Makes you wonder why animals choose to like a certain person in that type of situation where you're a stranger to them. First line of thought with the camel would be it liked the smell of either the soap or shampoo I used but niece had spent the night with me so she had used my soap and shampoo that morning. And my hair is blond so it's not uncommon for grazing animals to want to taste it to see if it's hay or straw but the niece has blond hair too. We tried to think of every reason.

@waresbear , if the farrier isn't doing a proper job then she deserves to lose clients. Either she needs to go back for some additional training or find another career. I think it's quite generous of you to take the time to teach these people how to do it right.

Today we went to Sam's and I bought a 3 pack of Raid wasp & hornet spray so I could be prepared but then forgot to take a can with me to the barn. LOL However, it was raining so while they were clinging to the spot they are making the nest, they weren't active and I was able to get in and out of the gate without getting attacked.

I don't normally use a wheelbarrow when cleaning the lean-tos because it's my exercise time too and the walking back and forth from the manure pile is good for me. Today I did since it was raining and I caught myself more than once saying "beep, BEEP" when I was moving it from spot to spot and one of the horses was in the way. How stupid was that since they don't know what beep, beep means? LOL Needless to say they ignored me until they heard MOVE IT which is a phrase they do know. In other words I need to quit channeling the Roadrunner and stick with my Sergeant Carter from Gomer Pyle impersonation.

I confess that I filled out an application to adopt a dog. Now to wait and see if the rescue thinks I am good enough to adopt her. LOL. Wish me luck.

A link to her.

@JCnGrace you need to get one of those squeeze bulb horns like kids put on their bicycles or the kind that rings. or better yet a little compressed air horns that boaters use. That would probably clear out the whole herd from your path.

A can of hair spray works on bees also and styles their wings in the process.

@JCnGrace I was editing adding more about your herd while you were posting. LOL.....Yes Carmen is marked very well. Can't deny she is a GSD.
I ran across her by accident looking at the rescue organizations. They have some beautiful Husky's that I would guess are pure bred. Love the blue eyes they have.

My sister has a husky and she's a beautiful dog but boy does she demand attention and kills any smaller animal that crosses her path (especially cats). Very loving to humans though. I've had a malamute and a malamute/chow and they were more laid back dogs that also got along just fine with our feline residents. I've always adored shepherds and the crosses I've had in whatever form. They are smart and loyal dogs. I bet you'll be happy with her if the adoption works out but if not you can send her to me. LOL

The airhorn idea made me laugh. It would probably clear the barn of horses, cats, spiders and any other creature that might be hiding in there.

I have had 4 GSD and loved them. The last one I had which I got right after I got back from Nam was especially loyal and would not leave my side. She helped me so much that first year. My mom let her outside one day while I was at work and she got hit by a coal truck. I never understood because she never would leave the yard before when she was out weather I was with her or not. Remembering about Lady that was almost half a century ago.

saw this one after watching a video posted by another member in one of the posts. I have to admit this one made my eyes teary. So if you don't want to have watery eyes I would advise against watching it.

@JCnGrace I am a bit sore! It was good though. Felt good to get back into the gym. I just have to stick with it. Welllllll we're going on a cruise to Bermuda in April so I'm hoping I lose the 10-15lbs by then. LOL, giving myself plenty of time haha. & thank you! I just wanna lose some of my hip weight/tummy haha, nothing major. I call it relationship/happy weight because I gained it since I've been with my boyfriend hahaha. Aww that's so cute! I feel like animals can sense a lot about people. Glad you got some spray! I probably would've forgotten too. Glad it was raining so it helped a bit. I do the same thing...I talk to Promise like she can understand words like that haha. It's habit!

@RegalCharm aw good luck! She's so cute. I like her name too. I hope you can get her.

@waresbear nothing wrong with that, you did those people a favor! :) It's so hard to find GOOD farriers. Or people think theirs is good but they're actually horrible. I know quite a few in my area that are horrible but people swear by them.

I confess, it's SO hot/humid today. & the rest of the week...probably won't ride much but we will see, going up to 100F on Saturday, sheesh! Might storm tonight which isn't a bad thing, but still. The humidity is torturous, which is the problem. If it doesn't storm I may ride for a little, because by the time I get to the barn things cool off a bit...but who knows. I know my luck I get to the barn & the storm will come. LOL.

Ride more, worry less.
