We had family come in to visit over this past weekend - and we had such a wonderful time! It was great being able to see them and visit with them, again!
They missed out on being able to watch us bathe The Boys. But I promised to post photos for them to see after they get back home.
I didn't think to grab the camera quick enough to catch photos of Bruce getting his bath. I'll have to catch him next time - especially since he's so easy! That boy LOVES his bath!
Judging from this photo - one would assume Artist loves his bath - as well. Right?!
I don't think I'll ever figure out his conclusion of a ' one side lather ' being - enough.
Wasn't long before he began having words with the fence post.
We're not quite sure about what was going on here - yet.
All of a sudden - you'd think Dwayne had hit that ' sweet spot ' on his back. He just - froze - and started pushing and leaning toward the water.
Artist loves having his head messed with. He can't get enough of the brush - especially when it comes to his face and under his jaw. You should see him hold his head up high - on request. He is all about that!
And he was just fine with standing there for as long as the water was flowing over his face.
I don't get it!!!
We turned 'em out into the other paddock to dry. Each got a treat of sweet feed. We're hoping this will encourage Artist to ' become one with the waterhose ' in the future.
And they smelled soooo good! Naturally - that only lasted until the next day.
Our neighbor - Robert - took care of our second cutting of hay for us. Dwayne lined the bales up along the fence.
We round-baled this time. We'll be using this cutting for bedding more than feeding - considering the barn is still plum full. But Robert told us that this grass is really good.
Surprised us - considering the whole field was looking like we were gonna lose it - until afternoon storms began showing up at the final hour.
Come the first week in October - we'll be needing every bit of it - for sure.
God willing - Dwayne will be heading out to pick up our 2 new Cow-Calf Pairs!
( See them here! )
In the meantime - we have more holes to punch for corner posts - more fencing to run - and a couple more shelters to build!
More tack - more feed bunkers - more water troughs...
Almost like being pregnant again.
At least - I'll be able to see my feet and tie my shoes during the last 2 months.
