The Internet is Down at Home

We've been without the internet at home for over a week. Comcast finally came out and said that it was a cable issue and they need to put in a new one.  Soo, my story will just have to wait until next weekend.  Have a lovely week, and I'll be popping in here and there at work.

Bring Up Baby - Week Two

This week has been all about the record breaking heat.  We've had heat indexes over 100 and code red air all week.  The poor little girl could only go out for an hour first thing in the morning, before the heat and humidity got unbearable.

It's been about the heat and her foal heat diareah.  Yes, here I am the chief cook and hiney wiper.  Every evening out I go with my bucket and my sponges and my desitin and wash and wipe. Jeesh the poor little filly, or maybe it jeesh, the poor little owner.  Anyway she's been a real little trooper, throughout.  She's leading better everyday and tolerating her wiping.   She still comes up when she sees me, even with sponge and bucket in hand. So I suppose we're still on the right track.  If this doesn't clear up in the next few days, it's time for the yogurt.

Next week it's going to be a lot cooler, so I'll have pictures.

I'm Not Alone

There's a large group discussion over at the help section of Blogger between folks who are having the same problems commenting that I am.  I'm at work, but when I get home, I'm going to read to the bottom of the discussion and see if there's anything I can do to fix this.

Hi There DarC and Say A LIttle Prayer

Well once again I'm blocked from commenting. They ask me for my google account, I give it to them.  They ask for my password and I'm told forget it.  I can even sign in to my google account and then try to comment and I'm told my password isn't my password and to forget it.

So here's what I wanted to say. Hey there girlfriend, when I read the title of your post, I thought, Holy Crap, she's going to come away with five chicken, ten goats, a few sheep and a mule.  I know that I can't resist a baby anything.  I think you did great.

Ok now for the next bit. I've been reading all about the nasty weather out west.  Try this on, we're going to have a heat index of 110 tomorrow with 90% humidity and code red air. I have a tiny baby foal, who I'm going to have to cool down if I want her to live. I don't know what to do, so she and her mother are going to be kept in the stall with the fan on and hosed down twice. I can only hope this will be enough.  In the long and short of it, if you are not in fire zone, and it's raining, consider yourself lucky.  You could be here and dealing with what we're dealing with.  You may be bored, but at least your animals are not in danger of dieing from the heat.

Well Here She is at the End of Week 1

She attracts crowds.  A friend of mine said I should charge $2 for the attraction. :)

She's really good about letting people she knows handle her.

She can run like the wind.

I think she has Kitt's lovely extended trot.

She leads better, everyday.  I don't have a picture of that.  And now here's this week's doozy.  She can walk on her hind legs.  She actually took three steps.  She hasn't attempted it while being led and if she did she would be corrected immediately, but I don't feel that I can come charging out into her pasture yelling "bad girl, no," when she's just playing.

Hi Out There

Well Google is not letting me post comments. Go figure, so here's what I wanted to post.

DarC:  I wondered if you were affected by the tornadoes and I'm glad you stayed safe.  The sky color before a tornado is creepy in the extreme and the sound is something you don't forget.  One thing you didn't say you did, but you should do, is open one window, that's what I've been told anyway.  It has something to do with the pressure build up if the tornado strikes or comes close to your house.  Anyway, glad you're safe.
