LABOR DAY

Not much going around here for the holiday! Little cowgirl is out of school today, but hubby is working! :( Planning on having brisket, pasta salad, beans and key lime pie for supper. Yesterday after church mowed the grass, it needed it bad! Wanted to get it done before we got any rain from the hurricane. Today rode "Grey" this morning and he did very well. Pulled 3 tires out of the pasture and worked on turning and facing as well. Hoping to get to rope off him in the next week or so, interested to see how he does. I have taken him to a sorting and he did okay, he doesn't have alot a cow to him. He is really coming along with the reining, working barrels as they are going to be at our next play day. He really is a natural at turning the can! Also did alot of loping reining exercises.


Rode him down the road to cool him off and came across the armadillo again! **So Chris (aka Frazzled Farm Wife) here he is!

What is it about getting a new manure fork?? They are suddenly really excited about helping?!?!? She told her teacher the other day her favorite chore was poop scooping! LOL!
Taking poop to our drop off spot at the back of the pasture. She loves going there with me, so she and "Shelby" can ride back in the cart!
Hope you all have a great holiday Monday! Look forward to checking in and seeing what you all are doing!

Here's hoping you don't get TOO much rain from the hurricane. I remember when scooping poop was a favorite job, LONG AGO!

Well, I'd say if her favorite chore is scoopin' poop, you have the makings of a real little cowgirl! LOL

Andrea said...

What a great helper!! She can come and do my barn too. And wow gray looks great!

Shirley said...

Sure hope your little cowgirl continues to love doing chores as she gets older! I wish I lived closer to you, I'd send you Gussie to ride so she could get an all-round education too!

Dinner sure sounded like it would be real good.
Poop scooping, I actually like it too as long as I keep it up. It is kind of calming and I get to be with the horses while I do it, even tho my 2 yr old colt is so dang curious he messes me up half the time.... LOL
