Happy Halloween 

Because we live in the country and on a highway road we usually saddle up the horses and ride over to the subdivisions to throw candy at trick or treaters- not this year. I’m still suffering from an ear infection so we stayed in and started the new season of “Stranger Things”. 

Bwahahaha!!!

Pain in the butt

We have four horses – Chaser, (the daughter) likes to live up to her name and chase the goats, dogs and the other horses – especially her father. The bond between those two is really fun to watch but sometimes she’s just a pill.

As I was watching them the other morning, I saw Chaser returning from the water trough to the food bale – walk right next to her father who was grazing peacefully – she then hip bumped him and sent him stumbling.

She does this often – Talk about having a child that is a literal pain in the butt.

Yard decor

We noticed a horse skeleton at Home Depot and instantly got excited- thinking of the fun we could have not just at Halloween but throughout the year. 

Think about it – there is no way you can store something that big. We would put it out with the rest of the horses and change it’s pose often. Standing, rearing, rolling, sitting like a dog, or on its back – feet strait in the air. So many ways to piss of PETA. 

IT sucks

If anyone knows of an easy, free editing program for iPad, with royalty free music please let me know. I just spent all day trying to create two sixty seconds videos for the barn. (Or if you know a way to download royalty free music.) 

If I wasn’t so dependent on my technology I would have thrown it out into my pasture and let the horses stampede it.

Tragedy and Miracles 

Today my neighbor’s pregnant mare coliced, and needed to be put down. We were able to do an emergency C-section and deliver the colt. He is three weeks premature and will need 24 hour care for the next few weeks, but his first 24 hours will determine weather he lives or dies. I hope for all of our sakes he makes it.

My husband, while running to grab emergency supplies twisted his ankle and had to be placed in a boot for the next three weeks. So the next few weeks in our two houses is going to be busy with invalids.
