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.

Vices

Things are starting to come along at the barn and we are making some good progress. The owner made the comment that I was too good at my job and needed a vice.

I think I surprised him when I told him my vice was swearing like a drunken sailor. But I did warn him that it usually only happens when I working with stubborn horses or my mental health is going. We only have 10 stubborn horses at the barn and my mental health only gets bad when I don’t get the sun so he shouldn’t have to hear me yelling too much. lol
