Awww glad to know Mr.Piggo (and I really like this name for him) is doing ok and getting strong. About being that animal lover, well let's say I could not sell any cow for meat, much less eat it myself. Big no no. I am not proud of me in this department, lol!
Nick really is putting a lot of effort building the stall, soon Izzie will be in there with you
And feeling a bug on the head in the middle of the night must be like Ewww... Once I felt a cattle fly on my back, after taking a shower, I got off my shirt in 0.5 second, lol!
cool that you could manage to check on your horses. Yeah, they learn fast and I can feel some resentment of your horse for being fed from someone else
One of the pastured horses soon learnt I was the one feeding this past weekends and cannot see me, will demand for his hay immediately (yeah, we're still facing severe drought in here, so hay supplementing is a must). Kittens are at an age where they grow up really quick.
your horses are lovely
that is so nice that Duke is moving more freely since Loretta arrived. They will get along just fine
And I hate when something happens when I am alone at the barn. I just had a very scary incident this weekend, will tell below. And I don't know how or why but my house cats get fleas sometimes, so yeah...
we all have our bad days. I hope you could let it all out and that by now you are feeling better. You are a true fighter, never forget that!
You can bet I am a totally better person during the weekends. During the week I am a lot bitter...
I hope your ride with Camdem went allright!
I guess I lost something along the way. Are you putting rides on this new cute horse, just boarding him or... Whatever it is I hope all goes well.
I hope all went well with thanksgiving! I too read library books, as books in here are really expensive! And I didn't ride Tuya, just no time for that when in charge of a whole barn
I really wish I had the time to ride this weekend as the weather was really not that bad, but as soon as I arrived to the barn and took a look inside the stables I realised it was not going to be easy, or possible at all. Only on Tuya's stall I took 6 full wheelbarrows... She was very well manered going out, since she had been loked all week. Just a little spazz after a long roll and that was it. That's when I brought her in that manure hit the fan. She started peeing herself and smelling the young stallion next to her, and that darn horse did the climbing the wall trick (what's with horses trying to climb walls crap???). I went to pick a whip and when I got back the horse was straight vertical against the wall with both hooves stuck on one of the metal bars (hard to describe for a non native english speaker, I am sorry), and when he finally managed to come down, half of the bar came down with him, along with a piece of wall. The horse was acting blindly and almost impaled himself a few times, as the bar was now all twisted towards him! I got out screaming and calling for the man in charge of looking after the property (the same that is feeding the horses during the week), luckily the man was nearby and came to help removing the bar that was still stuck on one side. He had to hit the horse several times in the process. I was all shaking and swearing (oopsy). If I was alone I could not have had the strength to take off the bar and God knows what could have hapenned...
Sunday as I was only going to feed the horses I decided to take my mum with me. She is the one that thinks that horses are money being thrown out of the window, are dangerous and not cool because they are big and do not sit on our lap. I keep telling her that could hurt a bit if they did, lol! I was not taking Tuya out so as she could remain next to the stallion, to ensure she would not throw the seducing move, and can you believe my mum never even atempted to approach her? I kept talking about her, showing her topline and how concerned I was, bla bla bla, mum was paying attention to the barn cats!! When I asked her if she thought Tuya was pretty she answered 'well, might be, it's a horse'. Yeah, that was akward. She didn't even pretend to show interest. Nothing new to me but...
Well, at least Tuya will not bite the bar anymore, because I seriously thought she was going to break her teeth someday.
Do you guys think that living next to stallions is causing her to have more frequent heats? BO used to be against the need of stallions, now he has 5... Sigh...
