Yesterday afternoon John said he was going out to look for masks.............again. I have no idea how many miles he's walked that last couple of weeks looking for masks and a lot of times coming in empty handed.
He came in all puffed up with 7 masks. We thought there was only 6 out there, and none of the ones he brought in were the last 2 missing. Some of these we'd forgotten about it's been so long. Some aren't in very good shape and we'll probably just throw them away, but HEY at least he found them.......well except for the other two. Hopefully they won't need them pretty soon. It's stayed warm enough that the flies are still pretty bad.
Pepper almost got lucky yesterday, well as lucky as a gelding can get anyway. Coquette seemed to think he was pretty cute. Talk about make his eyes bright and his ears perk up, he was really a happy old guy. Usually the girls just walk away when he's trying to catch up....!! LOL He's actually putting on a little weight, which is good since we're going into winter. Winter in SE Arizona certainly doesn't mean what it does in the rest of the country, but he was so thin this summer, I was afraid I'd have to blanket him every night, which would really put a cramp in his style.
