Well, last night was another cold one. It was drizzling/raining again this morning. Looks like summer is over. It is supposed to be nice this weekend. That would be great as RAIN (Rescued Animals in Need) is having a flea market and we have some wonderful ladies coming to stay here and they are going to have a booth for Honey Bandit there.
RAIN and the wonderful people involved there have been great. When we were so desperate for blankets etc those first few days, they would arrive with them any chance they could. They also gave us a donation. We can't say thank you enough. It is so awesome when everyone is helping each other.
Today Jennifer and I took Honey Bandit and Patches out to play in the big corral. Once again, Honey Bandit had to give me a major attack. He went running high tail around the field and swoosh, he went sliding and face planted once again. It never bothers him, but I can't wait until he gets his strength and coordination back. It will make me happy when he has one day of running and bucking and doesn't fall down.
He is getting pretty rowdy. We got some good video (short ones) of him playing and bucking. He is getting rather feisty. Hopefully Jennifer will get hers up on you tube, as I don't really have that skill mastered very well.
His personality is coming out more and more each day. Tonight he decided to have a little rodeo in our "bedroom". He came over to where Chino was laying down and "pawed him" once, good and hard. Chino actually used his head and moved away, and HB decided he was going to let fly with his back end. Well,,,,,,, we do not have room in here for him to have an indoor rodeo. Chino jumped onto the bed and the computer, and Mr big shot turned his butt towards me and backed up. He has had a very cute, but very much "going to be stopped" habit of backing his butt into you to get a good rubbin'. He and Patches can do that all day long, but he already moves me when he does it. So I am not letting him do that anymore, funny as it was. He is also learning that he is not supposed to be in "my space". We still spend alot of time "cuddling", but he only gets to do it when I say so.
He is getting so big. I cannot believe how much taller he is. He is just growing and growing and getting heavier and longer. The blanket that used to fit so perfectly is now about 6 inches too short on the back end.
Assuming that he continues on his road to "fabulousness", we will be attending the Wild Horse Protest in Sacramento on October 23. He of course will not be getting out of the trailer, but we will have huge pix of him so people will hopefully pay attention. He loves the trailer. It is like "home" to him. Gee, maybe because that is where his "love and compassion in his life started", and where his pain ended. Anyway, he likes to be in it.
It is time to stop BLM and the roundups.
God bless you for all your support.
Palomino, Honey Bandit and the gang.
