Holly's bucklings, Ellie Mae and her doeling left on Satureday. Holly was upset for awhile. She wasn't quite sure what was going on, but she's settling in. We had her penned seperatly with Hattie's babies so she would bond with them....that didn't last long! She figured out how to get out and took the babies with her! So we let her stay in the big pen but the babies had to be locked up again because we are having a problem with Shep, our male border collie, killing chickens, and biting the horses and cows. So until we figure out what to do, the little ones have to be locked up, just in case.
Our farrier came yesterday to trim the horses hooves. He was impressed with how well Chance looked. Chance had been having a problem with holding his weight. Since we see him all the time, we didn't notice that much of a difference, but D.J. said he looks worlds better. So we'll keep working on it.
This warm wheather is making all the horses spunky. Bannie nipped at Chance yesterday, so I slapped him. Usually he just looks at me and walks away...this time he turned around and barrel kicked at me, just missing my knee. I promptly got out my lunge line and whip and he worked a bit! I don't think he'll try that again for awhile.
Well, that's what's been going on here. We're getting ready to close another auction so that will keep us busy the rest of this week.
Enjoy the warm weather while it lasts!
