Monday 7 July 2008

Another very hot day today, very humid. I didnt get very much achieved except for mowing the field where we have planted the oats and hay. I needed to cut it long to just get the weeds cut off before they flower and reproduce more seeds for next year. It will give the new grass a better chance to grow better.

I got Gee and Taxes out for a run, at different times of course LOL which they really enjoyed.

This is going to be a short post today as it is late and the picture today is of the three fillies down the road at the rented pasture. You can see them harvesting the winter wheat in the background if you click on the picture and look at the larger view.

Abraham I would also love to leave mine as stallions but it is just not feasible and Taxes is a very different colt to any of the others I have bred. He nearly took my head off the other day when I turned away from him. He was in his stall which has a gate that is about 8 inches higher than the normal gate. Thank heavens because the next thing I knew he had his knees on top of the gate and if it had not held or been lower he would have jumped right on top of me. He was not being mean, just doesnt know any better and is very strong willed so has been very difficult to keep under control. So we decided it was now or never. He is still spunky but not in a dangerous way and more manageable. I am glad you are feeling so much better.

See y'all tomorrow. (((Hugs)))

I know what you mean with it being too dangerous, I broke in a bull a few years ago (a bit different to a stallion, yet the same LOL!) and although we didn't cut him when he started getting too strong, I had to stop leading him.

The photo is gorgeous, and the wheat in the background adds so much to it.
