I started this Post on November 4, then , not sure what happened but I am finishing it now.
I had a request for more Henry pics, so here you go!
As you can see we had a dusting of snow!
guys that play hard, sleep hard too
Henry and his pet kitty Delilah
" I jes rode into town looking for the man who shot my paw" LOL hat is backwards but he was not actually cooperating as well as it looks
Henry ,like Winston is an animal planet junkie!
I also captured some pics of this little fellow tappity tapping away
Finally got the feeder barrels hung, took a couple adjustments and some false starts to keep them hung up, but they seem good now, tied in place with holes drilled in the side then stabilised with a rachet strap.LIkely U bolts would work better but I think they would seize in the weather and we would have difficulty moving the feeders if we wanted to.This makes them easy to shift around . As for how they work? so far so good Phoenix is doing very well with his and Cactus. well although he is not impressed he is using it and holding weight without wasting hay so I call it a win.
I have one day a week now that I am gone from 9 in the morning to & at night. I could get family to do chores but I wanted to see if this worked. So Marc or Dad let the dogs out for me ,but I feed the horses in the morning , filling the feeder with what would be almost a full days ration, and they still have hay when I get home ! I call that a win!
Speaking of my long day, I am travelling quite a ways north and ,my drive can be a real Hinterland who's who lol .
Last week I saw a black bear (too far for pics and I didn't really want to get a whole lot closer)
and these three lovelies!
Life is pretty good, I am getting ready to haul Cat and Andee to the barn for the winter and get back on track coaching, hoping to also get back into swimming again now that I am healed up.
Gotta move it or lose it!
Stay safe my friends
