20 August 2007

I am having problems uploading photos again, getting error messages and I took a few shots today too!!!!!!

We had a storm last night and then at about lunch time it stormed again, flooding the center of the barn once more LOL and it rained steadily all day. I think it is still raining on and off. Boy did we need this. The pasture down the road where the 4 girls are is really eaten down but is already starting to green up and it is big enough that it will be able to grow even though they are eating it almost as fast!!! They are still looking great though. If we hadnt had this rain I was thinking of getting some large round bales and putting one in that field so they had something to eat on, now I dont have to worry.

Well other than that nothing exciting to report. I have another load of sawdust to unload, was going to do that today but with the rain I couldnt put the colts out so I could reverse the trailer into the barn.

We may be getting the two mares and baby back from Iowa sooner than we expected. They were going to come at the end of September but now we are not sure. I still feel really sad when I think of the mare, and colt that we lost and the Daddy of our foals too a few months ago. Three horses in five days was a bit harsh to deal with.

That is all for today. I will try to edit this and add a photo which I took today. It was raining quite hard and very dull so it is not the prettiest picture. I have converted it to black and white, it is a shot of Lori and Cayenne running up the hill towards the gate when they saw me.

(((((Hugs)))))) to you all

Hi Lori,

Glad to hear you got some rain! Thank goodness for huricane season, it seems like it takes a Texas huricane to break our summer droughts.

I am also glad you got out and took some pictures. I think the change in the weather inspired you!

Like this shot in black and white. Seems to fit the weather.

Take care.

It is raining here too. Not enough to really get things wet, but just enough to interfer with doing the things I needed to outside.

Thanks for the link. So far he hasn't recovered anything but Colleen says he is still working with it and he seems more hopeful than he was before. Will let you know if it works.

I'm glad that the links gave you the info you need to shoot the Arabian horse show this weekend. I figured pictures could tell you a lot more than my descriptions. All of the farms where big name farms known throughout the world.

I'm feeling kind of down today, not the usual for me, don't know if it's because it looks like we're going to have the winter from h _ _ _ or what. But I think I could sleep for a week and maybe feel better.

Hope you have a good day!

And thanks for mentioning shavings, I need to order some and almost forgot!!
