The Six

The six bottle goats we kept had been doing well staying with the herd until recently.  They some how got separated and have been hanging around the house and barn for several days.  One day they got into the yard and J ran them out into another field.
 The only problem with that was they then got into where J is feeding grain to some calves and the goats were jumping up in the troughs eating and messing in the grain.
 I know it's only 4 of them here but the other two couldn't squeeze in the window during the rain storm.  Anyway, it was up to me to get them with the rest of the goats again.  And since there is no herding them, I towed them with a bucket of grain.  The trick is to run away fast enough so they don't follow me back to the barn again.  
 I guess it worked because they are back with the others for the time being.
If they continue to make pests of themselves their time here may be limited.  (the snow picture is not them, I just liked the picture)

Birthday Success

The rescheduled birthday surprise was a success.  Hailey had no idea she was going to be painting with a horse.  When we asked her to guess what you could do with paints and horses at the same time she had all kinds of ideas except for the right one. 
 I couldn't juggle the horse, child, paints and camera at the same time so Wrangler didn't make it into my photo but he did do the painting.  Hailey picked the colors and I gave Wrangler his brushes.  Hailey named this artwork "Wrangler's Rainbow"
 And then she got to ride Wrangler.  How multi talented is that?
 After a little while on Wrangler I switched her over to Pep who was more her size and her mom took over riding Wrangler.
I think she had a good time.  Well, what little girl wouldn't?

Good Fences #98

Since the internet was down I wasn't able to post my snow and fence pictures earlier.  There is no snow here now but here is an idea of what it looked like earlier.

Mustang Makeover

Well, I've gone and done it.  I've officially lost my mind.  I sent in my application for the Extreme Mustang Makeover.
This is where trainers apply to get a wild mustang and have 4 months to work with it them bring it back for a competition and then auction.  
I might not even get accepted but I think it would be fun and challenging.  It will definitely push me out of my comfort zone.  The application deadline isn't until the end of March so I'm sure it will be awhile before I even find out anything.  But I'll let you know as soon as I do.  Stay tuned.....

Just Kit Sunday #96

Kit Kat may be tried of Wrangler getting all the glory. 
 Maybe he wants to try his paw at painting.
Or maybe not.

We Have A Sale

Wrangler has had 2, count 'em 2, sales on Ebay!
Which is a good thing because the buyer that has been waiting on him has backed out.  I have someone else lined up that wants to look at him when the weather clears a bit but until then it's nice that he is earning a little money.  Which is more than I can say for the other 6 horses out there.  
 This one sold last night and is in the mail.
And this one should already be at it's destination.
The 9 year old little girl that got snowed out 2 weeks ago is scheduled to come tomorrow for her painting with Wrangler session.  I'll try to get some pictures.

A Few Snow Pictures

The absences is not my fault. My internet connection was lost on Sunday.  My internet provider promised a new modem to arrive on Tuesday.  If the modem was not the problem then it would be a call to the phone company and another 3-5 days.  They called last night to see if I had gotten the modem.  No, I had not.  They thought it might have gone to Pennsylvania.  It finally arrived today and yes, that was the problem so no waiting on the phone company and we are back online.  But I missed out on posting my snow pictures. 
I think Emma enjoyed the snow. 
And Bumble and Bea just took it all in stride, shaking it off when necessary. 
 The cattle were a little restless waiting on J to arrive with their hay.
 The horses turned their noses up at the hay to start with and preferred digging in the snow for what grass they could find.
Since most of our farm lays to the south, we have lots of bare ground now but the snow was pretty when it arrived.
