Today, I’ve pretty much been worthless…
I’ve checked on the horses and cats, but mostly, I’m not sure where the time went.
I think I’ve just been in a daze, shuffling around the house looking in the wrong boxes for things I think I need.
The horses seem to be hanging around the waterers and not venturing out around their paddocks. However, I did see that Norma Jean (the donkey) found the tree shade in her pasture first. The others followed. I could see them from my bathroom window.
Finn, BG and Wrigley found the small shade tree in their pasture, but seemed to be more interested in what the mustangs were doing.
The mustangs hung around the waterers… Gwen did find the shelter and she stayed in the shade all day. Interesting that – I thought the mustangs would stay in the shelter and Gwen would want to be around the water. I was wrong.
I have discovered two things: The ground, when wet, is like a slippery clay slide. This will be interesting during rainy season (oy). I also discovered that the ground is very sandy so I will have to figure out the best way to feed on sand. I have hay bags. And, I have Sand Clear. But I’m going to do some research.
Anyway, the great news is that no one suffered any colic.!! I swear by SayWhoa to Colic!
I let the cats out of the office (they were driving me crazy) and now they are hanging out in the backyard and garage. One cat, the Barn Manager, is not wanting to leave the office. So, she may just end up as the Office Manager now. She’s sitting by the window here as I type.
Scouty was very happy. That is until Hubby brought home a new foster dog. I think Scouty wants to be the only dog. But, Hubby would like to foster dogs with some sort of trauma until he can find a dog that he feels should live with us. In the meantime, Scouty has to learn to share.
I will recover soon! I have so much to do! Especially rigging more shade for Finn, BG and Wrig!
