Lucy head butted me this morning when I was syringing her medicine down her. Actually it was afterwards, we were having quality time as she rolled the molasses in the mix around in her mouth. I had my head laid over her neck, petting her & she raised her head up, so it actually wasn't a head butt. More like the top of her head met my lower lip. Boy I hate it when that happens.........!!!! It's black & swollen, I was going to attach a picture. But when I saw a close up of my wrinkles I couldn't decide which looked worse, my lip or the wrinkles. It will be better for you to just use your imagination........!!! (G)
This morning I was laying in bed contemplating my day, & heard a grinding noise in the spa room. Sounded just like something gnawing on wood. Got up out of my warm cocoon to check & caught Justin & Pepsi. Well, I didn't exactly catch them, I caught them standing within a foot of wooden frame on the window. For some reason the minis like to eat finished wood. A couple of years ago we thought Cheyenne was going to eat the whole well house. She finally quit when she had a hole almost big enough for her to walk thru in the back wall. Hasn't touched it again, even when John replaced the wall with new unchewed "yummy" wall.
It seems like lately, I am getting at least one call almost everyday from someone trying to rehome an equine. I wish we could take them all, but we just recently managed to get our numbers down to our self imposed limit. At one time this year we were over by 5 & that wasn't even counting the 2 that were in a foster home. Most of them are older, & have issues, which is so heart breaking. I had a woman call this morning about a 23 year old horse that could only be a companion. She's had him on Craigslist & is afraid some of the people that have called are interested in taking him to Mexico for slaughter. There are people in this area making a living picking up free horses & hauling them across the border. We talked for awhile & I finally told her if it was me & I had to rehome him for whatever reason, & could no longer keep him, I would euthanize him. I almost cried when I said it, anyone that knows me knows I didn't say it without thinking of the horse first & foremost. To allow an animal that really has no value go out into the unknown, to maybe be passed around or neglected, is cruel, & should never happen. They all deserve better.
