Tucker took Gus our donkey to show and tell in preschool today it turned out so well.. All kids really enjoyed Gus and Tucker was grinning from ear to ear.. Tucker is wearing the superman t-shirt he has the big smile.. The lady holding donkey is the class Para she was nice enough to hold him so I could get a few pictures...

Well Survie has made it more than a month and his wounds are really looking great! He did have a touch of something last week and looked thin for a few days but after some meds he is right back to his playful self and acts like foals his age.. He is still worried about anything touching his behind and try's to kick anything that touches him in rear.. Being attacked by another horse to this degree most likely would make anything scared so we aren't getting after him just trying to stay clear of those hoofs till he is fully healed and maybe forgets some of the attack.. Besides that when we get him haltered he is just fine on front end with people.. I do believe he doesn't much care for me since I have to hose down his wounds, catch him, and give him nasty tasting meds.. He is pretty cute and wants to be in with foal next to him but that will be a week or more down the road as we don't want him getting those almost healed owies all opened up... His mom is being a angel to since we have had to trailer them many times. And of course for hose downs of his owies we take her out and tie her, she picked up the routine fast and never fusses while away from foal(foal on other hand so fusses missing mom LOL)... I can't tell the extent if much scares he will have on neck, but his butt is healing with a bumpy spot.. They are so much better than before and we are amazed when owies of these kind do so well, the body is a amazing thing..

Spitfire -- she has rubbed all her mane off naughty girl.
Skipper, a Zan It filly I bought as a yearling and a ham!
I have her half sister and they both are constant ear movers it does give them flair(well most of the time -- she looks dopey in this shot)
My filly Saxy by "Wyo Blue Chips" born here last year..
Spicey looking at me like oh god her and that camera.
Houdini's markings, the marking looks like it runs through his eye..
Lacey wanting in on the pictures taking.
Just enjoying my new time to spend entirely on horses since Tucker is now in preschool.. I took most of these pictures for sheer fun of seeing them at ease.. All are in there every day look.. Bad hair day and all LOL...

OK both boys are being taken in and out of trailer daily now.. It was time to learn to be tied to it and learn patience.. For time being 10 Min's is all the time they will have to stand tied to it but I suspect its along time to a weanling.. The two boys are doing great and have yet to act a fool.. Both looked pretty bored and confused..

Well had a great day.. Unexpectedly ended up at a clients house and was able to see a foal by my stallion born this year.. I had seen her right after her birth and she was very bay but didn't know if she'd roan or not.. Well she has and she was so much fun to see today.. Well seeing her proved to be a tad bit of work as she was out in a very large pasture and her mom didn't think we were going to get anywhere near them.. So we had quite a bite of walking and seeking to get these few pictures of her and they were about to fly away every time we closed in.. Its so neat to see them handle the terrain at full speed and that foal kept right up with that range wise mare... Anyhow here she is even if pictures aren't great she was awesome to see in person..
