Another very hot day. We didnt manage to get the photos of me riding, we will eventually LOL. It was too hot to be outside much so I am posting some flower shots I took while walking down to the mail box yesterday. These are all wild flowers, the yellow and white daisies and the yellow cluster of flowers are about the size of my thumb nail, tiny. The bee is on a milkweed plant flower. The milkweek is the staple diet of the Monarch Butterfly caterpillars. It is quite interesting how it all works. I am starting another blog for my creepy crawlies and critters so that I can get identities on plants and animals and share stories of what I find around here.
I will try to get up real early tomorrow to get some riding in and work with the babies. This is the only thing that I hate about summer temps. From today the days start getting shorter again, that always depresses me too because I know we are on our way towards winter, perish the thought.
Wiggle is suffering with her eyes. Because she has so much white under which is always pink skin and her one eyes are mainly surrounded by pink skin she is very sensitive to the sun and her one eye is really running and looking sore around it to the point that is wants to break open and bleed. I have put a fly mask on her because the flies just aggravate it, lets hope she keeps it on!!! I will take a picture of her tomorrow wearing it. If it doesnt improve I will have to bring her home to treat it properly. Holding thumbs that this works. I bathed it too with warm water and boric acid diluted into it.
Sorry Mike no pictures of your "no longer little" buddy Taxes. They spend most of the daylight hours in front of the fan in the barn. I will be thinking of weaning him in about 3 weeks or so. He could quite happily be weaned now, I hardly ever see him suckling anymore, but I never do it before 3 months. Then I can put him momma out in the pasture with the other mares down the road.
Well thats all for today, we are expecting rain over the next few days. I am not holding my breath as they have been saying that for the last 2 months and we are still waiting for anything significant.
Hope everyone is well ((((Hugs))))) to you all, you are always in my thoughts.
