9 July 2007

I took these when I went to feed the girls this evening. You can see how dry it is, the grass is mostly brown but there are some green shoots from the last little bit of rain we had last week. We are supposed to be getting some rain over the next two days, I hope it happens, we still need a whole lot more than we have had.

Wiggle just wanted to play with me, unfortunately she is a bit big so I have to put a cap on it quickly before she gets too rough. She is one of the few horses I have that actually loves me back, probably because I hand raised her. She looks so cute with her fly mask. She and BB are fine with them and their eyes are looking a whole bunch better.
I went to fetch hay again today and they have cattle there so I took my camera to try to get some shots of them. They are in a barn with a small area fenced outside so it was difficult to get good shots because of the black background and most of them are black. This was one of the odd ones out, cute little face.
Boy you gotta see it to believe it LOL. Their tongues sure get all over the place!!!
We had another day in the low 90s and tomorrow will be the same then expecting it to cool down to the upper 70s low 80s. Thank heavens. I still havent got the lumber for the fence as they didnt get their delivery last night. I phoned before I went fortunately. I will check with them tomorrow again and as soon as they have them in I will go over and collect them.

I am really wanting to ride but it is unbearable from 7.30 in the morning until 9pm at night. I suppose I will have to be patient and wait for this heat to pass.

Well that is about it. The barn swallows are all flying around along with various other families from other nests and the ones that I was worried about in the other barn seem to be fine. I have seen the parents in and out and going up to the nest and they are doing their thing trying to entice them to fly.

((((Hugs))))) for everyone.

Wow, you're cooling down while we're warming up. It's supposed to hit record temperatures here for the next few days.

I used to play tag with Dandy when he was young. One day he came up behind me thinking we were playing and knocked me to the ground. That was they end of our playing.

They are so big and powerful and they sure don't understand they can hurt us. Wiggle must be disappointed, I know Dandy was.

Horse tongues are amazing too. I can't believe how long they are.

Hope all is well there. I think about you often!

The photo of the tongue is great! I didn't know horses had two-toned tongues. Great timing!

That first pic is so beautifully composed, Lori. Wiggle is a darling in her fly mask ...she looks so funny.

great cow pics...I love the tongue!

Hope you get some respite from the heat soon and can go riding xxx

That is a cow with the tongue out in the nose. At least I never saw a horse do that and horse tongues are more square on the end as I recall.

Sounds like you are dry like us. We did get 1/4th inch of rain here a while ago but we are down so far that it is not helping much. Still I will take it and be thankful. I even watered some this morning.

Lori--love the pics. Nice to see some cows for a change. Very cute, one of the reasons I can't eat them:-) It is hot in Oregon to. I am melting! Stay cool.
