Just schtuff from the depths of my brain

Schtuff #1: The baby horse has a name, she will be called "Harley" (insert sigh here, so cute)
Schtuff #2: The RX for overall good health is FOOD (thanks Doc)
Schtuff #3: The weather sucks (anyone agree???). The first day of spring was like 10 days ago and so far there has been no spring.
Schtuff #4: Easter candy pretty much rocks my socks off. Huge fan of the robin eggs and yellow peeps.
Schtuff #5: I'm supposed to be preparing FHE for tonight but so far haven't come up with a single thing, except for the treat. Cheesecake bars anyone?
Schtuff #6: The social security office is not my friend. Why do they have to be so darn frustrating.
Schtuff #7: I need to hang up my clothes. I think every shirt and pair of jeans I own is currently thrown carelessly in the corner of my bedroom.
Schtuff #8: I want to ride my horse.
Schtuff #9: I'm all out of schtuff to list

The mighty huntress...

In the red corner...Little man weighing in at 7 lbs 4 ounces
In the blue corner...Lily weighing in at 2 lbs 5 ounces
This is gonna be one heck of a fight folks!!!!

Lily thinks she is tough and in all her 2.5 lb glory she decided to take on the cat. Of course, she had no idea that the cat is actually twice her size and could easily claw her face off. She barked repeatedly at him and followed him around. He didn't seem to mind at first but as most little people tend to do...she got annoying which annoyed him and he took the first swing. Lily was not going to back down without a fight so she continued barking in the cat's face...the second swing and then the third. Lily backed off and went on to bigger and better things like taking a nap in the sunshine. After I put the cat out, Lily again attempted to eat him this time through the window and the best part is she tried to do it while wearing a pink dress that just screamed "I AM LILY AND I AM GOING TO KILL YOU"

I love ya Lily!

Announcing...the new BABY!

No, it's not MY baby! Let me start at the beginning...Felina is a horse, a big big black horse (by the way, she stepped on my foot and I'm pretty sure that every toe is broken) anyway, over the summer last year it was thought that she was pregnant but she never seemed to grow any bigger (lucky, huh?) so that thought was pushed aside quickly. Well, it turns out that there was indeed a little chicklet in there and it arrived at 5:00 a.m. this morning. I wasn't there obviously. I had better things to do like sleep. The baby is a dark gray color, at first I was unsure whether it was a he or a she so I called it a shim. It has since been confirmed that it is a girl. I can't believe how cute she is. I hope my babies are so cute and fuzzy. The best part is that she likes me. She let me touch her and everything! I have a feeling that I'm going to be spending quite a bit of time in the barn watching the baby do baby things. For your ooohing and ahhing pleasure....a picture:

It's a lovely Saturday morning and SURPRISE I started enjoying it at 2:45 a.m. aren't you supposed to sleep in on the weekends?!? I don't understand.

Here's the deal for real: I rode two horses yesterday and WHOA was it exhausting! First I rode Rocket and then I rode my Kyah my own horse (p.s. I cut her bangs and she looks so freakin' cute!!!). Rocket did pretty well, he kept trying to pull a fast one on me but HAHAHA (insert evil laugh here) it didn't work. Kyah was slightly more difficult to get to cooperate but alas, I did get her to cooperate better than ever before. We loped and jogged and walked aimlessly through the weeds and random horse bones while enjoying the scenery and nice warm-ish weather. I love my horse! OH! While feeding the chickens yesterday the rooster accidentally escaped causing all sorts of stress because of his annoyingness. Apparently he is going to be caught or shot in the head. I guess this ends the post for the day. Oh by the way leave some stinking comments because I like them :)

The life of a farm girl

I'm becoming what I NEVER thought I would EVER be and as it turns out it is quite fabulous. The life of a farm girl is quite busy. There is always something to be done...feed the horses, ride the horses etc. and best of all there is lots of DIRT involved. Those of you who know me well know how much I despise the dirt but things have changed and the dirt is awesome! I believe the only things that really bother me are horse sweat and mud.

So, this morning I went with Mike and Lori to get some hay because, of course, the horses have to eat. At first I went to pick up some hay and it was soooo heavy, like twice my weight and there was no way I was going to move it. I thought to myself "if at first you don't succeed, try again" and I did indeed try again. I ended up moving 2 bales out of 100. Yes, it's kind of pathetic but I was proud of myself. My muscles seem to be failing me these days :)

Also, as part of this farm girl thing I've been riding my horse. I can catch, saddle, and ride her without supervision now. How cool is that?! I can even life the saddle on to her all by myself (mommy wow! I'm a big kid now!).

That pretty much sums up my life at the moment. Bah bah bah bah bah I'm lovin' it!

Tip of the day: the best time to take a drink in the car is when there are no bumps!

Life's Simplicities

I'm sitting at the kitchen table watching two fat goldfishes float in their tank and pondering the simple things in life like being able to float along in a fish tank with no worries at all. How would it be to be a fish? or a dog? or even a happy cow from California? It would be good but I prefer to be human I think. There are so many wonderful pleasures in life that would be missed out on if we were animals. Love, shopping, hangin' with friends, listening to music, watching the stars...these are the simple pleasures I'm talking about. There are so many blessings in this world it just blows my mind to try and think of them all.

Well, Tuesday was quite the eventful day. In the afternoon Lori and I rode our horses around the property for a while, it was such a nice day to enjoy! After riding we decided to ride two more horses so we went to get them. We pulled Hiccup out of her stall and realized she was limping because she had a nail in her back foot! Lori got some pliars and pulled it out so she will be okay. As soon as we got the nail out Mike came walking from the barn with Scooter the old horse who had cut his leg pretty bad. It was gross. The cut went all the way to his bone and I was like "HOLY FLAGNOD that's his BONE" and there was also a tendon that had been cut and was sticking out. We got him loaded up and took him to the vet where he got all stitched up. The vet had to cut the tendon out so he'll have a hard time walking for a while but he should be okay as long as he doesn't get an infection. It was one heck of a crazy afternoon!

Tip of the day: When sitting on the heater, put a blanket over you to trap in the heat
