no more tellin' others just what they want to hear
when it comes to advise for re homeing a horse or any animal, i will not become envolved....i myself regret having to eliminate animals from my life because i failed to understand what a huge responsibility they are...the animals that are blessed in our lives are a blessing that is more important than all the other so called objects that we think are more important....i would do without all that i possible can to keep my animals safely in my care and control...everyone should keep any animal they have made a home for till the end of that animals life....all animals not just humans

groom day for brand and honey
finally got my big guys in the 'bath barn' for a good groomin'....used soaked bounce sheets all over for mosquitoes - they work! YIPPEE!....it's so good to have a cool place with everything i need to groom them with a fan to dry them off....it feels so good to make them all feel better and lookin' so good

finally settlin' into a routine
goal is to keep a routine thru out all the seasons..so far so good with only changes with the sun....earlier feed and later feed...keepin' lunch the 'bucket time' for everyone to get their daily supplement in....a good time to check everyone over and spray for bugs....so much is harder for me at different times during the day but we're gettin' r done!

big difference with the remission supplement
i see an improvement in brandy's metabolism from being on the remission and cinnamon...he's much more peppy!! can even feel some ribs!...we do need time in the play pen and work at gettin' him to come to me to put halter on...he's not a good boy with that at all...
yesterday with stu back trimmin' was great!!! he handles the horses and buddy so much easier....gets down on his knees to trim the minis and sits on his legs so they are not stressed at all with lifting their legs...that means sooooo much to me....we sure don't need to be sore from gettin hoof trims!!!
today i must bag hay and finally finish paintin' opies pen so everyone can get in yard and cut the grass....the chores never end for ma ma....good david will be home for the next 3 days to help out...life is great!

stump free again
40 more stumps gone....it worked out perfect...bob came 9am...herd let him thru the gate and i got him in woods keepin herd in....fed bucket feed on time....bob finished 12:30....got everyone in with bucket to let him out....checked fence and planned project to clean up from stump removal...40 holes had to be shoveled back in....and I DID IT!!! can't just let it sit like that...horse may trip and when chips get wet even harder to shovel! done just in time for rain....wore me out but the good feeling of gettin' it done is worth it...end of dreaded project...
