This is Just Ridiculous
OK, I know there are hot days in summer, but come on! It was blazing hot yesterday. Today is going to be just as hot. Our human put our breakfast hay under some big shady trees in the yard. We have shady places in our corral, too, but this is nicer. She said I’m not going to an obstacle training clinic today. Good thing. I think obstacles are to be avoided. Why go looking for them,...
It’s Too Hot, But I Have a Pool! My human got me a pool to splash in. How cool is that? It was nearly full when I started playing in it. I think the point is to paw and paw until all the water is everywhere.
I'm back! Let's go out again!
I thought something was up, and I was right! Yesterday I thought I was going to just get treats in the trailer again. Well, I did get treats for getting in, but then we went someplace. It was far, and the ride was hot, even with all the windows and air blowing around. We went out to a place I’d been once before, but this time we stayed all night, until the next day. We didn’t go out...
An Adventure is Afoot
The donks and I are out on the lawn, grazing, and eating the hay on the lawn - there isn’t much grass, but it still feels like we’re out grazing, like a picnic. Hay tastes better on the lawn. My human is bustling around gathering things up and putting them in the truck and trailer. She says we’re going somewhere fun, and I’ll be glad I got into the trailer. She says there...
Lions and Tigers and Coyotes, Oh My!
Well, OK, just coyotes. But they are scary, sneaking around in the dark, cracking sticks, and throwing shadows under the trees. I ran around with my head as high as I could hold it, snorthing and blowing something fierce. I think I scared them off. My human put the cats in the house and looked around with a bright light to make sure the coyotes were gone, then she fed us our dinner. A bit late,...
Trailers Are Cool.
Today I got to work on loading into the trailer again. I got pretty excited about the idea, when I saw that’s what we were going to do, because yesterday there were a lot of Apple Jacks being handed out in there, so I was eager to see if there were more today. And there were! I got treats for getting in, and treats for staying in. Treats for letting her shut everything up, and treats for...
Barn Full of Food! Yeah!
Feed Man came and filled the barn with yummy hay for us. When he saw how big my head is he wasn’t sure the X-Large fly mask he brought would fit. It does, but barely. It’ll do - it keeps the flies out of my eyes. And it’s got fancy maroon fleece around the edges. My human likes it because it has some Velcro trick that I can’t undo easily. Hmmph. No fun.
Feed Delivery Day!
Today is a big day. Today is Feed Delivery Day! I’m grazing now, but later Feed Man (a horsey superhero of sorts) will be here with a truckful of hay for me and my donkey buddies, Eeyore and Clementine. We stand at the gate and supervise as he unloads and stacks our hay. Today he’s bringing us new fly masks, too, since we’ve torn our old ones to shreds. Yay, Feed Man!
Trailer Loading Practice
I was supposed to have a lesson up in the mountains today, but I wouldn’t get into the trailer to go. After 2 hours of progressively worsening attempts, my human gave up in utter frustration and called off the lesson. Then we started working on a new thing: clicker training. It involved a lot of Apple Jacks cereal, and a little noisemaker thing. Hey, just tell me what I need to do to get...
A Geeky Word from My Human
My human, geek that she is, asked if she could put a link on my blog, so people could find it more easily. Since she feeds me carrots twice a day I figure I can go along with the plan. Here’s the link: http://www.blogcatalog.com/directory/pets Pets. Hmmph. I’m a great big handsome equine, not some fluffy lap dog. Ooh! Are those carrots? Gotta go!
