Oh Hey!!

Woof!  Where'd June go!?  Didn't we just celebrate Memorial Day!?

I just wanted to stop in and say I'm alive and I'm trying to post.  Albeit, I'm obviously not trying too hard...

A lot has happened.

I need to update ya'll on the Peabodies, the basement, and the baby.

But not today.


Hopefully before August rolls around.  Yay state fair!  Then it's wedding season, also known as September.  After that, maybe I'll have some free time?  So busy.  Just kidding.  I think the experts refer to it as lazy.  Practically the same though.

Nothing to See Here

Holy smokes-- the countdown is on!  We are officially under the one month mark!!  I kinda fell off the wagon with taking pictures of Lil' Mama-- this should surprise nobody!

Pa delivered a load of straw last week, so Lil' Mama (not to be confused with my Mama) has been spending her nights in the stall.  Since she hasn't been showing any signs that she is close to foaling, she's still out with Pongo during the day.

I have everything in the barn ready to roll (I think).

She has started to get a bag, but nothing crazy.  Her croup is still tight.  Her teats are full, but that's nothing new!  She's a maiden mare so she may or may not show the normal signs!  I keep telling her it's not time yet.  Oh yeah, and she's still getting her antibiotics twice a day.

I went ahead and ordered another camera so I can have one on her in the stall at night and one on the pasture during the day.  And then one ended up in her water bucket...
Surprisingly it still works, but it has some condensation on the lens making it blurry.  I'll put that one on the pasture since babies usually come at night.  If you want the info to check in on her let me know.  I may or may not be able to walk/talk you through setting it up! :)

Oh yeah-- if you see Pa, make sure to wish him Happy Birthday today!!

Case of the Mondays

Luckily it's Friday.

I should have known to go back to bed when I was told I wasn't glowing, but leaking.  Uhh... thanks!?

Or maybe I should have gone and got that donut I was craving.

After a not fantastic day at work, I go to leave and discover a flat tire.  Perfect.

So to brighten my day and maybe yours, I leave you with a picture:

This was shortly before he stepped on her...

Just kidding, but if I tried that pose today, that would be how my story would end.  

Happy weekend!

Prom happened to be the same night as the workshop I attended last weekend.  A couple of the girls came out before the party started for some pictures.

If only I was to get invited to prom...

Oh wait... I did.  Why didn't I think of getting pictures with Pongo!? Instead I was stuffing my face with Grandma's fried chicken prior to prom... gahhh!

Next time!

Struggle Bus

This past weekend I attended a photography workshop.  I thought I'd have a ton of pictures to share with you tonight, but instead you're getting one.  It took me over an hour to get my computer to cooperate to get this one posted... 

Maybe I'll give it another shot tomorrow.  It may be time for a new computer!

Finally Friday

And I'm finally back!! :)  Oops... my absence has no good excuse, other than I haven't had any good stories happen to me.  Or taken any good pictures...

Until today.

Guys, we have big news to share from the SHITMON!!  Still no pictures though.

Bonnie has flown the coop!

I've had the door open and the gate unlocked for a few days and they've been wandering out of their cage, but not the garage.  I was heading walking back to the house from the barn this morning and heard some honking by the trees.  Upon investigation, Bonnie was not in the garage anymore.  Floyd's still holding down the fort there, for now.  I have given strict orders to not let the dogs out unsupervised so they scare her away.

Here's to hoping she doesn't fly away and just hangs out in the yard/trees.  Time will tell!!

Have a great weekend!
