Me either, Lannie. That's a pretty amazing bloom.

You aren't alone as far as days being shot. The only thing I accomplished today was to get Leon to the vet for his rabies vaccine. I took him in the back door and stayed there ( back foyer--figured I'd do that so they didn't have to disinfect a room. The clinic owner came out to inspect Leon and give the vaccine--I had taken him out of the carrier and had him on the towel that was in the carrier--I asked which end the doctor wanted first--he said front and I turned Leon around and stay "STAY!" The vet looked at Leon and said "Does he even know that word?"

That was a big DUH! Do I really expect my cats to stay when I say "STAY"--not really--it's habit--I say it to anyone that is supposed to remain in place while a vet does whatever...the dogs all do stay but I don't really expect any cat to stay just because I said it.

So we were both surprised when Leon did stay--I guess hearing me say it to dogs all this time (he's 17) he figured it out.

I had some faint hope of getting the back yard mowed today--did actually beat a heavy shower (just) and got the front yard done yesterday but I think there's no hope for the back--it's just drizzled and sprinkled enough that it's just a little too wet. Since I'm going to need to mow it twice (got too long, too many rainy days and my old and tired mower bogs down if it's too high) so maybe I can get the first pass done (given no more showers) still today.

...maybe...

Aloe Plant Overgrown in Pot Spring 2019




Made the mistake of not re-potting that plant to a much larger pot until this spring, so it sustained some damage and was leaning over (looking for more dirt?)



Same Aloe Plant Just Re-Potted Spring 2020





Bonus Aloe Flower Bud!





Google Stock Picture of Aloe Flower Blooming


I had no idea aloe bloomed. We've never seen ours bloom...maybe the time it's outside is too short? We move all our plants into the garage right before it gets too cold then take them back out in the spring. Now I have bloom envy LOL.

I am ready to get back to life.

This sitting around crap is getting on my nerves.
Horus was born in Wyoming, then moved to Missouri to be a stud for 6 years, and then we got him and he came back *almost* to where he was born. Gelded first, of course, but since he was 7 when he lost his balls, he don't KNOW they're gone, and is still studly. He made my mare's last days "happy" before she died. She'd been waiting her entire life for a boyfriend, but all the geldings she'd been with previously weren't interested in her womanly wiles and ignored her.

I don't know about Dr. Pol, I get to see his show so infrequently. Some of the shows are from last year, though, so I assume he's still going strong.

That is, I used to watch them, until my son walked through one day and commented, "Why do you want to watch all of these shows of animals in pain all of the time?" It kinda made me cringe a bit--and now I think twice about watching them--right before I turn on the TV.
I love watching him because of his common-sense approach, and I learn TONS of stuff. Some of it is hard, like when I finally realized that Bandit (my first precious cow, Cricket's mother) died because she had an LDA (left-displaced abomasum). She could have been fixed by just rolling her over her back, but I didn't know what was wrong, and we don't have the luxury of vets who do farm calls. If I can't get the animal to the vet, they don't get seen, so I very often have to be my own large animal vet. I've learned a lot, but there's always more to learn. Of course, now I'm carrying a load of guilt about Miss Bandit... but if it ever happens again, now I'll know what to do and will have a much better outcome.

Isn't he gorgeous?

Can you smell him Lannie?
There's nothing like that warm/spicy smell of horse to put a smile on my face. Horus doesn't like me hugging him (he thinks I'm gonna "catch" him), but my girl Aiesha used to stand and let me hug her and bury my nose in her neck as much as I wanted. When I was a kid, my mom took me to a rental place every Saturday morning and I'd ride for a couple hours, but before I left, I'd rub my horse all over and then spend the rest of the day smelling my hands. My mom thought I was insane, and I REFUSED to wash my hands until the smell wore off by itself.

THIS STUPID LAPTOP! I keep stopping and copying the whole reply page every time I get to the end of a paragraph, and I was right at the end of the last paragraph when I hit the space bar between one word and the next and it wiped it all out. Luckily everything else was saved, but I lost the last bit.

So, to continue what I was saying...

I DO love you, but I was watching my shows this morning! Then I had to go milk Cricket, but it was time consuming because of all the snow we got yesterday. I had to use the sled and not everything fits on there, so Rich had to help carry some stuff out and he's sloooooowwwwwww. Then when we came back, we found Sissy, one of the feral cats, having her kittens in the garage, right out in the middle of the floor, among all the stupid garage chickens and the rest of the cats. Rich found her a box and a scrap of old rug and put her in there so she'd have a secure place to have her babies. Last count was three for sure, maybe four, but I don't think she was done. She's not a good mother, so I hope she doesn't have more than four. And as soon as the babies can go a few hours without her, she's going to the vet to be spayed. I told Rich to take her before she got pregnant this last time, but weather got in the way again, and then it was too late. But I'm putting my foot down, THIS IS IT! She's a nice cat, but almost all of the cats we adopted as house cats are her babies that she neglected to the point of death's door, and we had to save them. Some didn't make it, but the ones that did, we kept (and they're all spayed and neutered).

So, anyway, it's kind of a busy day here.

True story.

I am going to need some of that aloe.

My cat was in a grumpy mood and tried to commandeer my nap space yesterday. She took out one of my cuticles.

Did you get your coffee this morning?

That's the best way to start a morning.

Huh.

My Alan hasn't started my coffee for me in a couple of weeks.

Is this what they call splitting the sheets?

Twister is my cousin's horse. They live in Kansas. Stryker used to be housed with them before he came to Oklahoma.

My cousin Michelle and I would find a horse to ride when we got together at family gatherings. She and I have conjured up horses since we were kids.

My favorite Cousin and I have had a lot of good horseback rides together.

Twister is too big to fit in my trailer. So, he's in no danger of being borrowed.

A look at the bright side of this situation (from our pack perspective):

1. More dogs than ever are being walked in our neighborhoods, many we've never seen before!

2. Passing many dog walkers while out is helping to reinforce great socialization behavior for our pack. Even little Lanah, who likes to talk smack to other dogs, when with her Dobe pack, is acting much better!

3. Little Lanah, actually kept up with and ahead of Eva yesterday on her walk! When it's hot out I normally have to carry her the last 1/4 block to our drive, as she poops out and drags way behind.

4. Discovered that Corgis (three in our neighborhood) are not just funny looking dogs, but even more ridiculous when talking smack to Dobermans!

StrykersPerson Twister is a spotted draft. He's half Belgian and half Quarter.

My cousin said she's doubts he would let a goat on him.

Good boy Twister!

I needed to run over to the shop and get some tools - the guy that mows mom and dads place was there - yes -- mowing - he loves to come over to the shop and talk - so I turned around and went back to my old barn - then here comes the neighbor - again - got back in the truck and went to the shop - again - the guy was loading up his mow - so --- I waited till he left and got what I needed - then back to my place - By now it was getting later - just went home and got cleaned up and sat outside with Kadin .
