    Still no mini foal #2. Even the mare has a disgusted look on her face. Hopefully soon. Got 2 green bean plants planted yesterday and some lemon balm just for fun. Also bought a mini rose bush. I plan on getting some lettuce tomorrow. We've been having some really pretty weather. Benny wouldnt let me sleep 2 more minutes yesterday, almost as if to say "get up mom, its beautiful outside!" She spent the day chasing butterflies and watching me put my little grill and firepit together. Dont get me wrong, I love my bully dogs, but this hound is the best thing in the world. Maybe she knows I saved her, I dont know, but shes the best. I love her to pieces. I finally got to take my neighbors youngest son to the farm yesterday. Hes been asking his parents for a year now if he can go with me, and his mom finally said yes yesterday. They are an african american family, I wanted to point that out because you dont find many african americans interested in horses around here, and certainly not boys. It was a quick trip because a bad storm was brewing but he was amazed at all the open field to begin with. He got to pet one of the 4H cows which he'd never done before. I explained to him that one day they would be steaks and hamburger, he was a little taken aback. He knew hamburger and steak came from cows but I think that he didn't expect the cows to be friendly. I showed him the Canadian goose that was sitting on her nest of eggs and explained that if we got too close the daddy goose would chase us. He thought that was pretty neat. We went in with the horses and of course Sonic was the first one to give him a good sniff. I think he was surprised at how big/tall Sonic is. We walked around and he got to pet the minis before we heard rain coming, loud and fast. He wants to come back and ride :-)

    Got 2 tomato plants and one sweet red pepper plant planted today. Got some cucumber seeds planted too. Im just doing containers, not a real garden. Its just me anyway so I dont need much. Im thinking about a few green bean plants and maybe some lettuce. I bought some gaudy whirlygig things and a garden flag from the Family Dollar store to keep the deer out.
  4. The Front Porch

    Yes! Lol. And pray to God I dont get kicked in the head while looking.

    Neat pics RrW! Still waiting on mini foal #2. Mare seems to be waxed, so anytime now. Today would be a perfect day, its nice and sunny and warm. I need to get a halter on the other one. Ive been rubbing him all over everytime I go out, lol hes annoyed with me. My dogs ears are all good and Ive stopped stressing lol.

    Thats what the vet told me to do, so thats what I did. My dog in the past developed hematomas without me doing anything, it was just a fluke. She didnt even have big/long ears so the vets and I were both stumped. But I feel like with my 2 now Ive stimulated them to shake their heads/ears which *could* cause hematomas...especially since Benny has hound doggie ears.
  7. The Front Porch

    So Im stressin a little bit. When I took Faith to the vet for her abcessed tooth he peeked in her ears and said she could use a cleaning. I bought what they recommended there and cleaned her and Bennys ears yesterday. My gut told me not to because years ago I had a Pit Bull who developed ear hematomas...twice. It wasnt a cheap surgery either. I was afraid Faith and Benny would develop hematomas after I cleaned their ears....and still afraid as they keep shaking their heads. Ugh.

    "Crumble" as the girls call him eating grass with his sister "Margarita". Mom is a ways up the hill from him, but keeping an eye on him. It always amazes me how fast these mini foals grow, eat grass, and wean.
  9. The Front Porch

    Not yet. Still big as a house.

    Sounds like a plan!
  12. The Front Porch

    Yes, although my allergies are dust and mold. Felt like I had a bad sinus infection a few days ago, but that feels better. Being exhausted wears on me over time too. Sitting on the porch while Benny plays outside for a few minutes. Its nice out. The sun setting is pretty, wish my phones camera would do it justice. The blues and pinks against the green grass and purples of the weed/flowers blooming everywhere is nice.

    Plenty of mutt pups here. My area shelter even adopts out for free, their only stipulation being that your new best friend be fixed. Pretty day here today but Ive had a rough week and woke up with a headache that I havent been able to shake all day. I did manage to feed the horses (who are happy with the new incoming grass) and meet the vet for a coggins on Cricket. I scratched the little mini colt for a few minutes and headed home. Been crashed on the couch for hours. Lots of stuff I wanna do tonight but not feeling the best and having to work in the morning have me thinking Ill just stay home tonight.
  14. The Front Porch

    Ill try anything once, yes anything. Well, this day didnt go as planned at all. I woke up early to scramble around and pick all the girls up for the driving clinic today. Got out there and within the first hour all 4 girls were uninterested and not paying attention at all. I shouldve stayed but I told the girls to pack it up since they werent paying attention. I took each of them home. It was a quiet ride home. Ive never been so aggrivated with these girls before. I told them they wasted my time and Id have to think really hard about wasting my time and money on thier showing. We had talked about this clinic days in advance and they were discouraged from coming if they weren't that interested, but they all wanted to come. Anyway, after that a friend invited me to come read a part for his new short film, which I did. It will be on YouTube eventually (with all the others Ive done) and Ill let you guys know. Its basically based on the old Phantom comic book. Then took my dogs to a friends to play and Benny decided swimming in the pond covered with algea would be a good idea...eww. Yea she had to have a bath. Now Im off to bed so I can wake up before the rooster crows. I get to watch my niece and nephew tomorrow til 7pm. Its gonna be a loooong day lol, pray for me!

    Hahaha! The girls say the same thing and I remind them that theyre all cute when theyre little. When it comes time to halter break/train they arent so cute anymore.
  16. The Front Porch

    He is pretty fuzzy lol. Hes coming to us already, sniffing us, checking us out. He should have a halter on by next week.
  17. The Front Porch

    One day old
  18. The Front Porch

    Yes they are, unfortunately. Makes it hard to catch mama or baby if something is wrong with either. This mare isnt too bad about being caught or letting her baby be handled. She usually has babies that are curious about people from the beginning, so that makes it a bit easier. Ive already scratched this little fella all over, and he liked it. The other mare thats due to foal any day is the exact opposite.
  19. The Front Porch

    A storm was passing through when I snapped it. Made a pretty neat pic. If I can find kids to show the mares he keeps breeding, he wont breed them. Cricket escaped being bred because I told him we were going to work with her and show her. And I am. Ive asked that he not breed this mare so we can show her next year. The other one thats due anyday I may try to sell.
  20. The Front Porch

    First mini foal born yesterday. Its a colt. Ive got one more mare due any day and then hopefully this will be the end of the foals/breeding...for good.
  21. The Front Porch

    Sitting at the vets office now and we're in good shape! Going home on an antibiotic. Vet didnt see the need for an xray but if it doesnt clear up or is worse by Monday then he'll xray it.

    Benny loooves poultry poo to roll in. We have a lot of canadian geese at the farm and shes always rolling in thier poo. Plus theres the massive mountain of chicken poo the landlord has at the back of the property that he uses to fertilize his fields. Benny looooves rolling in that. Especially her face, which is harder for me to wash lol. Luckily she and Faith like thier horse turds frozen to snack on though.
  23. The Front Porch

    I rushed home, worried about Faith. I get home and shes much much much better! Swelling she had last night is gone. There is still a small lump on her jawline so Im still taking her in tomorrow. I just want to make sure there isnt a splinter of bone from the deer leg in there. Shes eating, drinking, wagging her tail. I almost wonder if she punctured herself in the mouth ( I can see a puncture wound in her mouth on her jawline) with the deer leg and whatever grossness was on the deer leg created an infection/abcess vs. a splinter. I guess we'll see tomorrow.
  24. The Front Porch

    Iams Large Breed
  25. The Front Porch

    Yes but I think this is something that is going to require surgery.
