The husband and I decided to have the electric company take down the security light out back. It was right in the way of where I wanted to put the round pen. We didn't anticipate how much light was actually produced! The husband called me the other morning and asked if it is still dark when I leave for work. I said yeah, but there is enough light for me to see. He said, "Well, there's not for me. I fell in a hole and ran into the whiskey barrel at the end of the sidewalk." I asked why he didn't turn the porch light on and he said he'd make sure to do that from now on!

Miss Priss is feeling much better. She is getting antsy in her stall. So over the weekend I let her out to graze in the yard. She really enjoyed it. Enjoyed it so much that she started trotting around, bucking and snortin'! I guess her back leg is healing up nicely!

Her patience is growing thin as well. She tells ya when it's feeding time and lets you know when you're too slow! Yesterday I went out to feed her and Sally. I leaned down and was dumpin' the shavings out of Sally's feed bucket and felt a splash of water hit me. Priss decided I was taking too long and pawed her water trough, splashing me with water!
This is not Priss, but she's been acting like one!

Bekah-LOL, a whiskey barrel is just that. But we cut them in half and use them as flower pots. Big flower pots. They smell real good when you first cut them open!

TW-I'm just a mess, glad it's entertaining!

Bekah-It would be pretty, if the rose bush that I planted in it wasn't dead.....my thumbs are no where close to green! Or maybe it's because I'm too lazy to water the suckers....
