It might be a good place to rant and talk about the horses and all the critters, better than making an individual topic for each thought/question. I don't know how often I'll keep this up, but I'll try. Someone spam me if I don't XD but anyhow, here's to start.
Today. Well actually let's back up to yesterday and review. A bit pic heavy...
Going outside on just a normal morning, then I hear little brother #3 yelling something about the cows. I go outside.
See it now?
You totally see it now.
We had no idea she was pregnant. After examining the other cows, one is really big (thought it was fat, possibly not) her business is droopy and stuff so maybe she's gonna calve too. Yay? He's a cute little bull calf though.
First surprise chicks, then surprise calf? Thank the Lord for life but geez.
In other news, nothing much is up with the horses except JayR finally busted his flymask. It was the cashel crusader with the nose (because he gets sunburned to the point of bloody blisters so it's a flymask and sunscreen for his face). Pretty good mask, just too big. Hated the stretchy strap with the velcro. Yick. The summer is almost over so I can tackle the rest of the season with sunscreen. Darn light skinned horses. Tess doesn't get sunburned ever, she's arab x appy with black skin. A little mottled pink around the muzzle (because of the appy in her) but that's it. It's JayR with the burns and allergies and everything. Poor old guy.
Still working with Red, the lame one. He might heal, he might not. He's better, but still limps. He's green broke but I saddled him the other day and walked him around. He pitched a little bitty fit about tightening the girth (ears back and stomping, he may or may not have been aiming for my toes) but was otherwise alright. Once he's better we can do more riding work on him, but as of now it's ground work and manners and the like.
