, 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.
, 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.
, 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.
