Got chores done then went back to bed until noonish . Finally was able to keep some chicken soup down(you know the kind , with zero food value, has never been in the vicinity of a chicken , or a vegetable for that matter) Figured it was a cheap easy thing and I wasn't wasting good food if it went wrong .
Still a little shaky all day so I pretty much laid low, I did go out for a walk and helped my BIL tow a truck out of the way of feeding , and watered the mares ,did afternoon chore a little early (and a little slow ) and got a few more pics of the "kids"
(Tell you a secret)
They have settled well, but last night was a little exciting with Quinn jumping out of the pen over a 3 rail fence I might add!Quinn was the wild child of the day actually , when I went to take them out ,it was quite windy ,so Deb was holding the gate , and Brian wound up laying over the tarp on Phoenix's bales to stop it from spooking them. Comet came out quite well on the lead , a little hesitant , but good. Quinn on the other hand ,was pretty sure I was leading him to slaughter! took two tries to get out of the barn and then when we were almost to the gate , he bolted and took off ! straight back into the barn , and into Comets stall , then out of there and into his own! (So wish I could have got that on film! ) Three times is the charm though and he led out fairly well and into the pen. As you saw from the pics I let them rip around a bit then caught them up , took off the halters and put them in the new pen .This evening , after some turnout time they are well settled and munching in their new quarters .
Was going to work on Christmas decorations outside and do some housecleaning ,but well the way I feel the dust bunnies will live to fight another day , and the lights will have to wait too!
