Bad Horse For Sale Pictures #32

 I just realized that it has been over a year since I posted any Bad Sale Pictures.  Shame on me.  And this one isn't technically for sale, it is At Stud.  Found it on Craig's List.  They had 10 chances to take a decent picture.  See if you think they were successful. 

Like yall to meet Ice On Fire! He is one of our Stallions at xxxxxxx. Ice On Fire is very well made stud ( he's a tank, nice strong legs, very wide chest, very wide rump, very well mannered, very intelligent ) he's a dark bay roan almost like a blue tint. Ice On Fire is proven to throw roan from (blue roan, bay roan, red roan, and black roan). Ice On Fire is 100% pure mustang. His colts has very good features ( nice bone structure, great muscle structure, very hardy to the elements, lots of loyalty to there owner's, very intelligent, lot less foot problems than normal horse's )  The colts I have seen are very easy going and laid back. Very good looking colts.  Ice On Fire is way bigger in person than in pictures. He's 15hh and 17 inches wide in chest and 21 inches wide in rear. Ice On Fire  already has bookings and don't let them fill up be for u miss your chance for a breeding this year! Ice On Fire's parent's came from Wyoming. **(Pryor Mountain Mustangs)**  Most of his girlfriends are Quarter horse's, Draft horse's, Mustang horse's and Thoroughbred horse's. Ice On Fire makes very nice colts threw theses type of horse's. You will see lots to come from Ice On Fire. He's never had any training for riding till now but I'm starting him and he's doing great. Ice on Fire is a very fast learner, and what 10yr old stud never been rode till a week ago and he's doing great. Ice On Fire he done amazing!   I will show u he can do it and will show u video's of him on his way to learning how to do it!

New And Improved Bottle Goat Feeder and Rorschach Test

I decided to go ahead and splurge on buying enough nipples so all of the bottle goats could eat at once.
 That meant I needed to expand the feeder from my original 4 holer.  I am only feeding 7 but I went ahead and made it 8 for the sake of symmetry.
 So far it is working like a charm.
Getting everyone lined up is the biggest chore.  Then, as they finish, we just pluck them off and put them back in the pen.  After we are finished with everything at the barn, I turn them outside so they are not living in the pen 24/7.
The last one kidded Friday.  Not this one but I love her markings.  I think it looks like a dog head.  What do you see?

Final Kid Count - 110.

Coupon Saturday #7

I won't bore you with all the details, but this was a couple of different transactions at Dollar General, Free candy bars from Family Dollar and Walmart paid me 50 cents to take the Zyrtec.
My biggest DG was $6.50.  I as anticipating $2.50 but the $2 off coupons for the Colgate didn't work this time so I has to pay full price ($1 each) and didn't get the $1 each overage.  Win some/lose some.  The next transaction worked fine and was $1.50.  So, total of $7.50 plus tax for everything pictured and a total of $40 in savings.

Update to Previous Post

I started cleaning my new cabinet, and look what I found.
I knew it was a nice piece of furniture. 

New Acquisition

Whenever I get the  chance, I will run into the State Surplus store just to see if there is anything interesting.   Most of the time there isn't anything I want.  But sometimes I get lucky and there is a jewel.  
 I went to the bank during my lunch break Wednesday and took a swing by the surplus store and saw this cabinet.  I thought to myself, "I don't need another piece of furniture,"  and was strong and didn't buy it.  But that night I couldn't get it off my mind.  So lunch on Thursday I went to see if it was still there.  I was totally prepared for it to be gone, but no,  it was there and $10 off the price from the day before. 
 It is a nice moderate size with two adjustable shelves. 
 It is only 4 feet tall and a little over 3 feet wide. 
There is a little condition issue on top, but I think a little steel wool and polish should take care of that.   Now I just have to decide where to put it and what to take out to make room for it.

Guest Photographer

E was home for a few days between the end of school and start of summer internship.  While she was home she went birding every morning.  She said she identified 44 birds by sight, 3 by sound that she didn't see and she saw several more that she couldn't identify.  Here are a few she shared pictures of but didn't identify to me.
But I know this is a red headed woodpecker.
Cedar waxwing
Not sure
Don't know
Brown thrasher
And I'm going with the red bellied woodpecker here.   Looks like we have a pretty nice place to go birding.

In Bloom at the 4R's

Spring has finally sprung, sort of.  I think we might have actually skipped Spring and went straight to Summer.
 But the irises are blooming and beautiful.  Both the bearded kind
 and the Siberian variety. 
 I have an abundance of spiderwort. 
 And the allium is still a favorite.  I see a definite purple theme going on. 
 Wait, poppies aren't purple. 
And my first peony of the season is getting ready to open.  I didn't notice until I was looking at my pictures, but there is a gross bug in there.  
And not my garden but E's.  She said her room mate sometimes comes into her room and just stares at her plants.  I love the unifying white pot theme.  Uncle M wanted a picture so he could stare too.
