We had 1 1/2 days of ground dry enough to get out and get some things done. Woo hoo!
I also played with the boys a while. I brushed on them, they chased each other around a while (which was good for Wy and his new wound), then I took each of them for a walk outside of the pen and we worked on some groundwork. We also went to the yard to eat grass for a short while. When I took them back in, more light ground work, lifted feet several times, and the new thing we did was the spray bottle! I filled it with water and took it out there. Tiger did great with it and Wy was concerned, but once he knew it was not going to eat him, he was fine too. I was pretty tickled with both of them. I also was throwing the pad around them and we played with the pool noodles. Tiger still moves a little bit at first, but Wy just looked at me when I came at him with the stuff. His facial expression said "BORING!".
WY SAYS: "Okay, she isn't looking. NOW!"
WY SAYS: "I will take the bucket, and you check out that black bendy thing."
The black bendy thing is the rubber curry.
WY SAYS: "There has got to be food in this bucket! All I am finding is that black thing she puts on our head!" (halter and lead)
TIGER SAYS: I know if I chew on this thing long enough, it will taste just like what it appears to be - hay!" (brush)
I got a new camera and was taking pictures at sundown. I really don't know how this happened, but they turned out really neat! Here is Tripp and Joker.
SPRING IS HERE! Here are some frog eggs! :-D
Brian spent a lot of time cleaning the top of the hill off for the outside bunch. I did not know until he started cleaning, but there was a good foot of mud and manure. He got almost all of it cleaned off and it looks so nice! Well, it did until we got all this rain and it is a mud pit again.
When Brian was coming back thru the barn lot with the tractor and headed towards the big dirt pile, Chase the llama ran up the dirt pile and looks like he is challenging Brian and the tractor.
Chase also worked his way into the chicken pen! We prop the door almost all the way closed and hold it with a cinder block. Well, he is like a big hairy cat. Lots of hair, small body underneath. He squeezed right thru the door!
Here is Chase in Chicken Jail.
I can honestly say that I love my life out here! Even on it's bad days, it is still so great in many other ways.
Until later...Karen and Tripp
