Thursday 30 July 2009 - I'm Baaaaack

Who knows for how long, have been taking lots of odd shots over the weeks but just havent got to edit and post them.

Below are various pics of my new boarder Gee. I have had her boarding here a lot over the past 4 years and she is back and helping to pay the feed bills. I loved this filly the first time I saw her. She is a thoroughbred (bred for flat racing on a track) and a lot of these were taken very late in the evening after the sun had gone behind the horizon so with her dark color they appear a bit dark. She is a very tall horse, easily 6 inches taller than my tallest paint horse. Below is Kendal leading her out into the field, her surroundings are a bit strange so we are babysitting her until she gets used to the lay of the land.

April, Goldie and BB enjoying the fresh air and bit of grass amongst the weeds.
This is BB and April coming in for feed time.
These below are more of Gee enjoying stretching her legs. Boy she can run!!!!



Well that is about it, so much happening, some good some bad, just not enough hours in the day.

Just to show you that "eM" could certainly stand up for himself despite his small stature.

Friday 10 July 2009 - Still Hanging On

I am trying to be proactive with finding work but between the horses, baling hay, a few orders and the heat and an unreliable vehicle I have had no luck.

I am starting to panic a bit now because I have zero income as I dont qualify for a widow's pension (long story wont even get started on that) and I lost all income from Larry the day passed. I am going in a big circle at the moment, damned if I do and damned if I dont.

Oh well just thinking one day at a time. This is a picture I shot of Herbie when he was a few days old, he is a gorgeous colt, and has a personality like no other as do each of the horses. It is breaking my heart to think of parting with them but even the horses arent selling, heck I have offered some of them for $500 and no takers, so if you know anyone who needs a green young unfinished paint horse let me know I have quite a few looking for homes aged from 2 years old up to 15 years old. Some have a bit of riding experience and they are all fast learners and easy to get along with. They dont need a heavy hand and are all sane and sound and just need someone to give them some time and love. I want to at least give them a chance at life or else they will end up in the sale pens, I will be lucky to get $50 let alone $500 for them there and then they will probably be destined for the slaughter house. They say that they have banned the transport of horses for slaughter in USA and have closed the two processing plants, but the horses are going somewhere and where there is a will there is a way.

I read in one of the magazines that I submit photos to that people in the Florida area are finding their horses slaughtered and butchered in their pastures!!!! What is this world coming to???? It is just too horrible for me to even contemplate. This is not just an isolated incident it is happening more and more.

Oh well sorry about the doom and gloom but it is how I am feeling a bit at the moment. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. We had a hot one today but may get a bit of rain tomorrow which will be great for the hay fields.

(((((Hugs)))
