7 August 2007



I am late this evening so this will be a short one. These are a few shots of the yearling fillies in their new field. Thay are so happy to be out and spent a lot of the day today in and out of the barn shelter not sure if they wanted to get away from the flies or eat grass LOL. I love watching them out there. They are all looking so good and that makes me very happy.

Glad you enjoyed the insight into the creep feeder. I have to say that this is normally for newborns and up to 3 or 4 months old only because that is when I wean them and then they are able to eat as much as they want without momma's interference, and Taxes is a big baby so it looks a bit cramped for him but he is really getting stuck in and not minding it at all. They work really well.

Very hot again today, probably the hottest so far. It is unbearable outside, the horses all have their fans on and they are happy about that. I put as many out at night as I can so they can enjoy the cool (if you can call lows in the upper 70s cool) and it helps keep the stables from getting so bad.

(((((Hugs)))))) to everyone.

Lots of brown and white--quite the trio. Stay cool Lori.

Lori, these three make an awesome trio don't they? They look good out running through the pastures.

I guess it will be a while before the heat breaks they are talking about a week before a big change.

Hope you are doing well despite the heat. Take care.

the girls look like they're having a great time. They also look closely related. Are they? If you told us already, I don't remember.

Sorry about your heat. I almost feel guilty, it has really cooled down here. Not even 70 but I'm loving it. Great to work horses in.

Do you have to worry about mosquitos when you turn the horses out at night?

Hope it cools for your horse show.

Do you have to worry about horses bloating after eating too much green pasture? When I was little I remember the cows used to do that and they would stick them with something. I don't remember what.

Anyway, the horses look marvelous out and about. They are pretty. Nothing like the horses I used to ride out west in the mountains.

That was way back in 1952.
