This morning was gray and drizzly. Not an ideal vacation day, but hey, whatever. Staying home in the rain beats going to school any day! :) Of course, it will add to the awful mud we already have. :( I fed and turned out early and then went back inside until 10AM. Then the little guy and I went out to clean out the barn.
Here is Dreamy with her rainsheet. Hi MOM!
Good morning chickens! (And yes, we have a guinea hen, the ugliest thing ever. But Clarence loves her.)
Now, wait a second......didn't I put Reva's rainsheet on? I always use nylon sheets under blankets to help keep the blanket clean underneath. Then all I have to do is wash the nylon sheet every week. I looked all around, thinking that maybe I forgot to add the rain sheet. It was not in the barn, nor was it in her muddy paddock. ??????? Clarence said, "Well, I bet she took it off Mama!" Yeah, right. But we decided to take a walk out back into her field just in case.
HOLY CRAP! She took her rainsheet off!!!!!!!! How in the heck did she manage that? It is a Weatherbeeta, and I know I buckled the fronts, did up the belly surcingles, and did the crisscrossed leg straps. I know because when I picked up the sheet off the ground, they were ALL STILL CONNECTED. Good lord filly! How did she manage that without getting tangled up? :O
Here is Clarence playing and being very good while Mama does stalls. :)
We are staying home for Thanksgiving., which is great. As soon as my son was out of the portable infant stage, I told everyone that we would stay home for holidays. All are welcome to come here, but I was just not going to start with the driving all over creation thing. It is nice to be home. But of course, it also means I get to cook everything. I am just not motivated looking at this pile of stuff! LOL!
Clarence took out his Build-A-Bear turkey for Thanksgiving! LOL!
Ah, the joys of staying home. Clarence loves to build his trains in the living room. This morning he made some sort of bridge thing between his table chairs. Too cute!
I needed a final photo, so I took a pic of the KHP map that was sent today by the USTA. LOL! So far, I have saved almost half of what I think I will need to get the Dream Girl and myself to Kentucky next year for the Standardbred demos at WEG in Oct. 2010! It is exciting and very fun to be working with the excellent TEAM of Standardbred owners! Yay!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!! :D
