Spring

March 12, 2012

And we are realizing that fixing fencing is going to be a priority. When we bought the property we knew that the fencing was awful, and the big horses have trashed it beyond recognition. It will take time and a lot of $$$ to get it to where we want, so in the interim we are relying on solar chargers and tape. This works fine in the temperate weather, but once they get thick coats, fergitaboutit……

Busy summer coming up and a few visits to Miller Post and Pole in our future.

Spring fever

The sun is out, its in the 50’s and 60’s, the grass is beginning to show and the greenhouse is bursting at the seams.

Yeah spring!

Tosca is just so tolerant

And he knows when to back off. Unfortunately all the horses are losing the tops of their tails to this naughty little boy. Maybe I should brush some bitter apple on the tops of their tails!

Pesky little bro

Othello really pushes it with his brother Samson who is so patient – we can’t remember Samson being such a pill at this age.  BTW Othello was gelded at 12 weeks, not a moment too soon!  He is now 10 months old.

Kicking up his heels!

Othello is in full spring mode and needs to be galloping around somewhere

We had shut Samson and Tosca out in the pasture so Mama Carmen and the foal could be unbothered in the front paddock.
