Let me start by saying it's one of my favorite shows but TODAY... I'm in a poopie mood as it is. Everyone at work irritated me badly today. No one did anything wrong but I hated them all! This chick posted something on facebook today and there was NOTHING wrong with the post but it made me mad!
My mom called yelling at me because she had stopped by to clean stalls and the horses had found a way to get into the pasture together when I usually have them split 3 in one, 2 in one, and 1 in another paddock but they were all together and Riley was loose. She's terrified of Ri as it is so she put him in a dirty stall and left him there. Then she cleaned the other 5 stalls and called me to scream and yell and grumble blah.
So I called husband and (I know what does this have to do with heartland - getting there) he was all like, oh... we'll talk about the fences tonight. No. We will fix the fences tonight. We'll talk about it. OMIGOSH.... So of course... I come home and I start fixing the fences... well... so the pasture has a spot that is loose enough for them to walk through should they choose. I live in the middle of nowhere so they don't leave the property when they get loose but they do get into things. So anyway. Blue Beauty and Riley know where the secret escape hole is. (Pistol, by the way, was in his paddock like a good boy). Cloud and Sierra don't escape because they are good children
Now... I know - getting to heartland - I get home and I go down to fix the fence BY MYSELF (husband wasn't home yet). Me and my John Deere put the horses away and fed then went to fix the fence. Pistol was out of water in his trough so I filled it. There is a spot between the paddocks where baby horse had knocked the fence boards down so I had put the 2 100 gallon water troughs in that spot which work perfectly as a barrier, well I saw the that one of the troughs was empty and the horses had moved it which is how they had gotten loose.
Um, the third trough was also empty. I am a terrible horse owner. I completely let them go dry! I put them back in place and filled them all and then I fixed the loose place on the fence that I should have fixed a month ago. This is where my heartland complaint comes in. I'm fixing the fence, alone and I think of that show and how Tim fixes fence... Caleb fixes fence.... Jack... all guys fix the fence. I never see Amy or Lou fixing fence. The girls never fix fence! And the few occasions that they do fix something that's broken, it's this huge ordeal that takes up the entire episode! What the heck!
Ok... that was it ... rant over... LOL
OH and husband did show up with the rhino and some tools to finish up with me. He even put a new board up where the water troughs go.
