  1. The Front Porch

    I love that spider! Hey yall! All is ok here. Unfortunately just as quick as I was busy with the kids and ponies again, they vanished..again. Poor Margarita and June are full of burrs already and look lonely. I filed their little hooves the other day..our farrier has been missing in action for some time now. I think when he shows back up Im gonna see if he will teach me the basics of trimming. I know its not easy and Ive been very intimated to trim myself for many years. But, Id like to give it a whirl, not make a job out of it or anything, just trim what we have at the farm. Got some sad news the other day..the Appy I gave away with Mr. Butters passed away. Complicated Colic. I havent told Zarinna yet. She was a great horse and she lived a wonderful life with me and at her new home. Lots of people from her new home were very sad. Im starting to think that maybe Im not depressed after all and just more of a home body these days lol. Still sorting it out/working on it. Looked more into what I need to do to get my real estate license and it doesnt look too bad. I want to sit down and talk to a realtor friend of my landlords though before I make any major decision. Been thinking about hanging up my saloon girl outfit...or just parting ways with the western group really. Long story that Ill post about later ;-) Hope everyone is having a wonderful day. The weather has turned quite beautiful here lately.

    RRW I always love your adventures, and your pics! Welp, you guys were right, Faith shredded the diaper. I give up. Ill just deal with the couch, but it is pretty frustrating at times. On a good note, she hasnt peed on the couch in days for whatever reason. I came home from work and everything was unbelievably dry. Guess shes been in a good mood lol. My old Jenna dog has 3 paws in the grave and Im struggling with whether to euthanize her. I never thought Id struggle with this decision for her as Im not as attached to her as the other 2. Jenna is 17. Shes lost weight, primarily muscle in her hind end making it difficult for her to get up and down. Her appetite isnt as it used to be, probably not even half. Id say 90% of the time she keeps her tail tucked tight to her body, so I think its safe to assume shes in some pain. But she does still love to lay on the porch and watch the cars go by or the neighbors kids play in the yard. She loves to lay in the sunshine and she does (today in fact) have a good day here and there. I think her body is ready to go, but not her mind/soul, if that makes sense. I dont think it would be fair to her just yet to euthanize her. Its become apparent to me lately that I am having some issues with depression. Depression runs rampant in my family and I think with everything that has happened in the past couple years it has just really thrown me down a hole. But, Im determined to overcome this. I am making myself get my crap together, get out of bed, be productive. I have spoken to my manager at work about it, and we had a really good honest conversation. I think Ill also talk to my brother about it, just so hes aware. Right now I havent talked to my doctor about it. If I cant shake this on my own or at least get a handle on it, then Ill go the medication route. Either way, Im going to be fine. With that said...guess what....pony time at the farm is back in full swing, with an extra little girl this time too. The weather has gotten beautiful, Zarinna is back in action and suddenly I dont have enough ponies/horses! Lol. P.S. are any of you real estate agents? Im thinking about taking some real estate classes ;-)

    Welp, Faith wasnt humiliated enough apparently. Came home to a super soaked couch tonight. Im off this weekend so my plan is to give the diapers a trial run. I don't think she would be able to get to the diaper to shred it, but wonders never cease. So Ill diaper her and leave for a little while and see how it goes. I did speak with a coworker today who used to train dogs for people and she says that given Faiths age I probably wont be able to train her not to pee on the couch at this point. Coworker says shes doing it because shes angry and those behaviors are the hardest to fix. She suggested removing Faith from access to the couch but I explained that that would isolate her from Benny (who is crated in the living room and loves her crate) and Jenna (who sleeps on the couch all day and whose days have become very limited...as in I think its time, if you get my drift). The coworker agreed that isolating her would probably be worse, she'd probably resort to being destructive even though she has never been. So...wish me luck and that the diapers at least help some!

    Ha! I love those!

    So on my days off I ventured next door to the thrift store and picked up a couple pairs of toddlers/kids pants for a quarter a pair. I cut a hole for Faiths tail and put them on her just to see her reaction. I think she was so humiliated that when I left the house for hours yesterday, I came home to a dry couch. Lol. I included a pic of her in her hot pants so you can see her poor expression. I didnt leave them on long, her poor little sad face got to me. Dont get me wrong, I dont at all think she's fixed and my coworker brought me actual diapers to try today, but I thought it was pretty coincidental amd funny that she didnt pee on the couch for 2 days after having on a pair of pants lol.

    She still gets the same amount of attention she was getting before Benny. She still sleeps with me at night all snuggled up tight. Neither of them have been to the farm in a good while because its just been too hot. When I do take them I take them together to avoid coming back home to a pee pee couch. BUT, she was doing this before Benny came.

    (Wheres that little icon with the head banging on the brick wall? Lol, thats what I feel like) Any chance that once she pees on herself a few times and has to have a bath (which she dislikes), that she'll stop this nonsense?? Maybe?
  8. The Front Porch

    Aww, what POS. People disgust me sometimes. I bet youll find one at an auction. Theres plenty around here for sure. Sometimes Im glad I dont own my own land lol.
  9. The Front Porch

    Actually Im off for the next few days and Im sure its going to be too hot to even enjoy the outside, so Ill be inside. Ive already googled dog diaper pattern and may crochet one up and line it with a dish towel or something just to try, maybe get her used to wearing one. I do wonder though...will she still pee and Ill have a dog to bathe when I get home? Ugh.
  10. The Front Porch

    I have never understood that either!
  11. The Front Porch

    I tell her all the time that shes very lucky that I love her. Like I said before, she is perfect in every way except this one issue.
  12. The Front Porch

    Im buying the cloth ones when I get paid Thursday. Hopefully she cant shred those. Left work early today cause the census was low and my sciatica nerve wants to be a pain today, so I didnt get those diapers from my friend/coworker to try. Oh well.
  13. The Front Porch

    We've been to the vet for this a couple times. Ive tried giving her the benefit of the doubt but the vet cant find anything wrong. He says its behavioural. She hasnt always done it. A friend is bringing me some diapers for her today. I have the next 3 days off and will leave her for a short period with a diaper on and see what she does.
  14. The Front Porch

    With the heat and her short nose, Id be afraid she'd suffocate. Then theres the very real reality that someone might steal her.
  15. The Front Porch

    I have thought about that (and have recommended them to others) but I haven't tried one. I might pair it with a doggie diaper lol. Im willing to try just about anything at this point.
