New spots

Had a rabbit show today . . .  I sold two Dutch does and I was given an offer on two spots that I couldn't refuse at that point.

Meet Blue Boy(needs a new/better name)

He is a little bit lighter marked.

Meet Cricket: 

Much better marked and is Blue Boy's daughter so line breed her back to him and I should get my blues!

More of a boring few weeks!

Loving the body type on my pony girls, and they've been enjoying the sunshine and warmth.

 I also let GiGi out in the playpen with her remaining 7 kits.  

 Heidi and Tessa were waiting as patiently as possible for supper



 Mom had Willow outside when I got done and she was waiting for me right outside the gate.

Riding kind of week

So last Sunday  2/5 I first rode Tessa.  It was an interesting ride as I haven't even tried to ride her since she was three, and she's almost 9.  She was good, but I think I need to change around that padding that I had under the saddle.  
Today I took Heidi out.  Been a touch over 5 months since the last time we rode.

Little things

In the only effort I have to do rabbits again I bred EVERY doe I had in the barn.  3 due 1/23, 2 due 2/2 and the last three due 2/14.
Well Flower lost her 7 kits, Legend has 3 and Hailey has 4 from 1/23
Then on 2/2 Natalie has three and GiGi(english spot) has 9
Only leaves Clover, Raven and Connie for 10 days from now.  
Natalie's:
 Hailey's
 GiGi's:
 Legends:
 The horses have been doing pretty good.  I am a little worried that they are developing thrush with everything been so wet lately.  4 more weeks at the latest until they get their feet done.  I am going to attempt to get them done mid month since Tessa really needs it.  I finally picked up her feet today- first time since she's been home.  

 They were curious as to what dad was doing as he was putting down the latest 6 buckets of rock dust over the walkway.

Nice-well nice-ish Saturday

Today was actually a fairly nice day.  After visiting Grandma down in Stanton I got to go out and spend a little time later in the afternoon with the big girls.  First thing I did was fit Tessa's bridle to her since I was dodging afternoon rain showers
I had to leave Heidi tied to the fence as she won't let me do anything with Tessa while she is around. 

So afterwards I took the ring off the haybale and pulled the twine's up since I forgot to cut those off. 
The sun did another apperance while I was out there.  

Then afterwards I got Ayden and Willow out to enjoy the last rays of the setting sun as well.

Wet mess

It's been a wet mess here lately.  So much rain


The girls are disgusting, the ground is even more disgusting and I will have to find a summer field for them to rotate into to drag, seed and rest dad's field.  Oh right now how I wish I made the money to board them both so this wouldn't be such an issue.  It's one of the few perks that I do miss to boarding- having the hot water in the wash bays.  I could hose their legs clean, dry 'em up and still ride.  But boarding isn't much for me anyway.

Winter time Burrrs

Hay bale seems to be holding pretty good.



Girls are getting used to having to share me





Puppers weren't happy with the cold.   They didn't get too much outside play time.
