Thought I would share the latest bump photo! Just under 3 months to go..... I need to get an appointment for my horses to get their hooves trimmed in February, that way I should be good until after baby is born and any recover that comes a long with that! Ranch Boy is going to have to take over feeding duties from me.
I will do it as long as I can. I got a great pair of "Yak Traks" to put on my boots so there has been no slipping or falling this year! I actually enjoy the twice daily routine of feeding- it gets me out and moving twice a day, as I don't have a very physical job. I love getting a sense of how my horses are doing, checking in on the weather, monitoring their feed, and saying hello to them.
Speaking of feeding, this is what I see out of the kitchen window in the morning around 7:30 when I get up for work. My Boy is so smart, he notices any sign of movement or a light on. He just stares at me with this cute expression, anticipating I'll coming out soon to feed. It's nice to see my whole pasture and my horses out my back door! There is one blind spot corner where Luna likes to hang out alongside the ranch horse pasture. This, of course, is also near the area where she's escaped so sometimes when I don't see her right away I panic at first she's gotten into the pasture next door. However, if My Boy isn't in distress then I know she's just tucked in that corner. When she has made it to the other side, he won't cross the downed wire and then he cries and trots around for her. The fence has been good and hot lately so I've had no Luna escape episodes!
We haven't much more in the way of snow accumulation, but have had some frigid and foggy mornings. Look at Luna one morning last week- she looks like a roan again! Totally frosty-tipped fur!
I hope you have a great last week of January. Hard to believe February is almost here! Spring is around the corner......maybe?
This week I am thinking of my friend Amanda, Bush Babe, over there in Queensland as they are dealing with some awful flooding in those parts. Stay safe BB!!
