30 November 2007

Believe it or not the first two pictures above are of Taxes (7 months old!!!!) taken a few days ago. Snap shots I am afraid, it has been cold and windy the past few days and wet the days before so they arent too crazy about getting outside. The second one his head looks a bit big because of the wider angle lens I used as I was quite close to him. He is still a brat and I am still threatening to tie a road map to his neck and send him down I70 in Mike's direction!!!!!! LOL
This shot is from yesterday evening. The three boys were having a rough and tumble in the new enclosure and were running around the outside of what is left of the roundpen and jumping up on each other mock fighting.

Our helper has been coming over all week and he and Larry have been getting all the stuff fixed in the barns. It sure has helped me as I have been able to concentrate on cleaning stables and getting ready for the horses to all be spending more time inside.

Nothing too exciting to report from this end of the world except that it has been really cold and windy the past two days. I can handle the cold but when it is windy too it is dreadful LOL.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. (((((Hugs)))))) and welcome to my new blog visitors.

Wow, Taxes is looking like a yearling already. He is huge! Can't you put him out with the other boys to play. It might be good for him to learn something about pecking order. Maybe just with one of them to start??

Sorry about the wind! I know exactly what you mean, that wind chill goes right through you.

Hope you have a good weekend.

With all that mud, Taxes is keeping himself so clean! Is our naughty boy turning a corner:-)

They even look like they are all having fun. This cold snap should make them feel cold but I guess they get used to it. Do horses ever get things like arthritis? That would be sad if they do as it hurts, or at least mine hurts.

I like your narrative with the pictures. It makes reading easier and flows so well.

Nice post.

I can't believe how big Taxes is getting! I am glad he can't read road maps.

We have gotten a brief warm spell and I am enjoying the warm south wind here. No rain here and we are needing it desperately again.

Take care until later,
