I started to catch up on posting some of my pictures yesterday and will do the same today. I know so many pictures of horses grazing can become very repetitive, but I see something different in each picture. Sometimes it is noticing a new buddy system, or maybe a different expression than I might typically see on a certain horse.

On another note the home "fix-it" projects are gaining momentum. My refrigerator decided it was time to stop running properly today. Hello, universe, I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS RIGHT NOW!!! Could you please move on to someone else's house? Besides, it is a really nice refrigerator and only four years old. I thought these things were supposed to have a long lifespan? Well, I guess I just needed to get that off my chest, rant over!

Back on topic to pictures . . .

A happy triumvirate

The same triumvirate a few days later with a slightly different arrangement
This rooster gets around; yesterday we saw him grazing with Sebastian and riding on the Gator. Today he is grazing with Trillion
Poco, the bane of of my existance. My dad bought him a few years ago at a really low rent flea market. He was going to the TSC store across the street and saw several ponies tied to a trailer. This flea market typically has just cheap junk and he was shocked to see ponies. He took pity on them and their less than stellar condition and bought one. Now I have the pleasure of being the recipient of Poco's charms every day. He is all pony. I guess I love him anyway, I'm not sure.
I'm not sure if Jason was painting the shed, his clothes, his legs, hands, boots or . . . ?
Clearly Bear wasn't supervising very closely or surely Jason wouldn't have been covered in paint
Sebastian peering out of the shed that Jason commenced painting with Bear's assistance (and of course mine)
I love everything about this picture from the horses' expressions to the scenery
Moving on to another grazing spot

I enjoy the blog. Such a beautiful farm. I'm sure the horse owners love all the pictues and updates.

Yeh....Jason is GREAT at painting things! Lol! I remember when he painted me with that blue iodine when we were doctoring What. It happened to be a very windy day, and well....I was standing downwind. I looked like a freaking Smurf! I wish we had pics of that! :D
