Just a few for now but in a few days it should be glorious.
The Siberian irises are very dainty.
This is some sort of defective bearded iris. I have never had one that looked like this before.
This rust is the normal color of the irises in that location.
And the coreopsis are in full bloom
Saturday morning I had to get Sweetwater in the barn so J could get in a heifer that was having trouble calving.
V helped and we ended up being able to pull it by hand, no calf jack this time.
You can see Sweetwater was very interested in the proceedings.
When I went back later in the day I found her with the halter now broken. This had been a new halter at the start of this adventure. It took some work but I was finally able to get a web halter on her and actually buckle it from the left side. But I still have a lot of difficulty approaching her to snap on a lead rope. So I still just basically work her without one.
Today I did a lot of work with desensitizing her to the rope. I was able to get it around her middle and put pressure where a girth would be. She took it ok, no bolting or bucking. She still acts like she would like to charge me. When she does this I make her back up then send her off to lunge some more.
And I was able to comb a lot of her mane out. She is starting to look better anyway.
