More rain on the way???

I better top off the water tank, oil the big guy's legs and get in any training i want to do before this afternoon and save my indoor work for after the rain starts. I have a ton of stuff i want to do like get the indoor cage set up in the front room for the rabbit (not sure if having him in here will work or not, more daily chores for me but I hate having him outside during the winter. It is too hard to keep him properly watered out there).

I'm having a hard time getting in touch with my hay guy to have him bring over the rest of my hay. I may have to run up to the little store on the corner where his wife works and talk to her.

I started Brego on some alfalfa cubes as a supplement this week. There is some research that suggests the lysine in alfalfa helps keep the feathered breeds from developing skin problems on their legs. It also gives him extra long fiber in his diet that the mini horses don't need without me having to soak it like the beet pulp. I've cut back on his hard feed to compensate for some of the added calores since he is getting pudgy, lol.

His mustache and goat beard are getting so long. The 'stache cracks me up...

I took a video with our digital camera of the faces he makes when i scratch his butt. *giggle* The licking and chewing motion is part fo what he does every time I scratch his butt... lol.

    He has rubber ears as well as rubber lips. They are all over the place all the time. It is SO funny. he pins them when he goes pee, which i think is his "AHHHH! RELIEF!" face, he pins them when he sleeps or is very relaxed, he flops them to the side when he is deep in thought... but when he pins them because he is mad it is an entirely different sort of pin... they completely disappear into his neck and he pinches his nostrils. He is soooo expressive, but if people don't know his faces they would think he was mad a lot more often than he is because of those silly ears.

  3. Aren't you tempted to tape a piece of chalk to that nose and put him in front of a blackboard~ he might be trying to write the great american novel....

    I was thinking that with that mustache of his getting longer if i could get him to dip his nose in paint and then do that on a canvas I'd be RICH! He'd be the horsie Jackson Pollock! (And his art would probably look better, haha!)
