29 October 2007
I lied when I said I hadnt touched my camera in weeks, I just remembered that last weekend (sunday before this one) a friend of ours who had taken her yearling to the Quarter Horse Congress in Ohio phoned as they arrived home to ask me to come over and take some quick shots of him while he was still all dolled up. This is a portrait I did of him. The kitten is one that adopted them over there and they didnt want to leave it there as it was raining and muddy and it was such a sweet little thing. What a little character. I just wish It hadnt been so late in the evening or I would have tried to get more shots of her because she was playing so nicely and had settled right in with all the horses and other cats. She travelled back with the horse, she sat on the hay in the back of the trailer, quite happy!
The boys are very happy with their new enclosure. I put them in and let Blue out there this evening for a few hours. He discovered the electric tape quite quickly poor boy but he also had a nice run around and enjoyed being out and able to stretch his legs. I will try to get pictures tomorrow. When I first put them out I am always cautious about them being in an unfamiliar area so dont always have my camera with me in case I have problems.
We woke up to 30C and frost this morning as predicted but it warmed up into the upper 50s so was a nice day overall. We turn our clocks back this Sunday, yay an extra hour to sleep, the downside is that I have to start the chores earlier in the evening because it gets dark earlier.
I have to do my sales tax return tomorrow!!! Cant forget that, yuk. Also expecting about three tonnes of feed to be delivered so have been cleaning the feed barrels frantically and getting everything tidied up. I meant to get hold of my hay man today to see what he has available but forgot.
I got my issue of "The Horse" magazine today and I have two pictures in it this month. Doesnt pay a whole lot but it is nice to get a monthly check(cheque) in the mail when they use shots. I have had photos in the August, October and this month - November, issues.
That is about it for today. (((Hugs))) to everyone.
