Next I did a few household chores then back outside for more fun. Water tanks needed dumped and refilled and the calves needed to give kisses. Aaron and Amy came by to trim a few hooves and will be back Monday to do more. About that time Jim got home, then Tim L arrived as did Su and Jerry. Soon Laura came and we began a filming project.
So much excitement for one day. Everyone helped feed and Laura had Maggie B eating out of her hand. Laura, you are amazing!!! The animals love you.
Babe and Lacey joined Bobbie at the hay wagon for a buffet of good food.
Poor little Babe is still thin from her bout with strangles last Fall. She and not-so-thin Lacey will be visiting a large pasture for the Summer. Hopefully, the sweet grass will fatten her some. She is still full of vim and vinegar and has lots of spirit. She is an older girl and needs some special care. Sparkle and Ruby are inseparable. Sparkle panics if Ruby gets too far from him and will run over the top of anything or anyone who gets in his way to his Ruby. He is still thin but gaining weight at a nice pace, not too fast. They will be going with us Sunday to the Paradise Horsemen's Arena off Clark Road in Paradise. Stop by and say Hi. 12-4 PM The upper herd gathered in the warm sunshine for an after breakfast tanning session.
Mac and Zoe And Keecha took resting seriously. They are practicing for hot summer days.
All except Love who was on another mouse hunt. She had found and killed a huge rat in the barn this morning. She likes to keep busy. Go, Love, go.
