Seems the summer is flying by!
With the cooler time in the evenings, I am out working with the foals, or trying the two mares I am breeding this year to get that done. Jazz is bred to Cactus (fingers crossed ,will recheck in a few days ) and we are breeding Ici to Phoenix this year, if I can ever catch her in heat! (funny mare that one ) I did also have 1 outside mare here, but she was here,bred and gone so fast I forgot to get her photo, sweet little thing though, I sure don't mind having such gentle easy to handle mares here.
I posted last time about loading Tango and Maks in the trailer, I have been also working with Casey and Sprite, Casey seems to have gotten the least handling this summer so trailer loading isnt the priority, just working on leading nicely and her feet,she is not for sale so it seems she has been less of a priority , time that changed! she is only going to get bigger!
Sprite did just fine with her trailer lesson, once I convinced her she needed to come out of the pen with me , pretty much looked at it and popped right on
Aside from that I have moved the renters steers a couple times, had a small incident with a wasp (he died, but not before stinging me ) and got rear ended while driving the gator in the field by the renters hired man. Sigh I guess to be fair I did stop in the middle of an open 1/4 section! The gator is fine as am I but I was one hot grumpy gal by the time I got in that day, and the steers were still not moved, I went back out that evening, with just myself and the dogs on the gator and got the job done
Cooler temps and cooler heads prevail
Skeeter says, "too many! I is just a little cow dog, I only work little cow herds!"
So for anyone interested, I have several little orange polydactyls, like this one
Then there are a couple like this
Already placed are (#4 in the picture)
And this little white treasure, she is a poly-dactyl Manx! who knew we got fancy around here!
So if anyone is looking for kitties...
Also horses, I do have Wilder, and Tango still listed for sale , also Sprite and Peps (Debs horses are for sale , maybe I can work a deal with a free bag of cats with every horse purchase... cant see how that could go wrong ! lol
Anyhow I have been busy and I have neglected the blog and reading others, for that I am sorry , I will continue to try to do better. I did consider stopping the blog, but honestly I think if everyone can bear with me for a few more weeks,I will get caught up and start being indoors before 11:00 pm and then maybe I will write all those rambling posts that have been swirling in my head !
Meanwhile as my weekend winds down , stay safe my friends!
