Isn't this what every one needs in their kitchen?  I guess I did for a few days anyway.  surely he can go outside if it just would warm up a little.  The sun shone today but it snowed off and on at the same time.  He just could not tolerate it.  He can jump out if he gets hungry and you don't respond when you should.  The little stinker. 

Today I took Sage to the hitch rail and groomed her good.  She has big balls of mud, manure on her in a couple of places.  I got some of them off but I need to soak them some.  Tomorrow I am going to take a bucket of warm water down and work on them some more.  I want to show her in halter then end of April just for the fun of it.  She needs to get out a little around other horses and people.  I need to get on her but was hoping Marilyn would come and ride her first.  It has been so cold and nasty for the most part I wouldn't want to ride anyway.

Rusty has an abscess in her foot.  We are soaking it in Epsom salts in warm water.  She doesn't seem to mind that.  Bob trimmed up her feet today.  She really likes Bob  but if I go around her she tenses all up and glares at me.  I have said before that she doesn't like me and she doesn't.

So much for our Saturday.  There was a sale we wanted to go to today but just couldn't get there.  We love to go to farm sales.  You never know what you will find.



  1. Your little guy is so cute! I'm so glad he pulled through. You have some really wonderful neighbors.

    I sure hope it warms up soon! This temperamental weather is no fun.

  2. Had to chuckle about your "little stinker" jumping out if you're too slow with the bottle!! He sure is cute, and looking pretty pleased with things, if you ask me. :)
    Glad you got to spend some time with Sage, even brushing them feels good. You'll be warming up in no time and have time to ride her then. I'm the one with no good excuses for not riding my horses lately. We've been mild and it's been so much drier than what is normal for us. I need to get out there in the evenings and do one horse at a time. Just do it!! I need a riding buddy, that would help motivate me.
    We enjoy those farm sales too, you're right about never knowing what you might find there. Just never enough time to do all the things we'd like to do. Take care Lea!!

  3. He is so cute with those brown markings. It has been so disgusting here. We had another major snowstorm Monday. Finally today it is warm enough to clean the barn. Two horses, six stalls. One is a run-in, one has hay and the other four are at least two feet deep in straw and muck. The mud is horrendous. Sigh. Where is Spring?
