Sitting here listening to the horses munch their hay, there is a definite chill in the air. It is going to be a cold one tonight. After the rain, it always seems to get cold so fast. Honey Bandit is in his beautiful purple blanket, so he is warm and toasty. Patches is with him, but doesn't need a blanket. He looks like he has pajamas on, and his winter coat is coming in fast. All the horses seem to be gearing up for a very cold winter.
Spent some quality time with Honey Bandit today. We hung out in the yard and practiced lots of little things. He was looking very handsome after his brushing. Then I trimmed up Patches, Bubbles and his mommy, and last but not least, Honey Bandit got his first mani/pedi. (or for those guys that don't know what that is, he got his first manicure and pedicure). All of his "nails" were done. He stood very well considering there was nothing on his head. He only needed some filing and didn't actually need to be trimmed, but it was a very good first lesson.
Not sure what happened, but can't seem to walk tonight. Guess my leg is pulling one of it's little numbers. So I am in my brace, all wrapped up and praying that tomorrow we are back to normal. (ha ha - as good as my "normal" is.)
Kind of feels like there is a railroad spike jammed in my knee. Just fun times in my knee world. Always make sure you have a good doctor.
I got tired of hearing Honey Bandit and Patches chewing on the wood between their bed and ours at 3:00 a.m. That is one of the ways that they like to wake me up. They know that as soon as I hear their teeth I am wide awake, even in those few instances that I am actually sleeping. So we are trying something new. I put some of my "rooster sauce" from my sushi on the boards. It was kind of cute, because they kept checking it out. Didn't seem to really bother them though. They sniffed a little bit and then walked away. We will see if it works tonight. For some reason they get the biggest kick out of "calling me" in the wee hours of the morning.
Can't wait to see everyone's pix from the rally in Carson City. I bet we come up with some pretty good ones. "Kuto" took some amazing pix of the local wild horses.
Honey Bandit keeps making these little moaning noises when he is eating. I spent hours yesterday listening to him and freaking out in case it was something bad. Apparently from what I could tell, he is just enjoying his food. But I am hoping to get a check up on Tuesday so we will know for sure that all is well.
Have a wonderful day. Hugs from Honey Bandit and the rest of the critters
