Cricket!

Cricket arrived on April 7th at 10:30 PM. IT WAS CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION! He is a silver bay and is such eye candy in the pasture! Scarlett had the best and most rich colostrum I have ever seen. Within two days he started to crash and it was Skittles all over again!!!! I thank the Lord that there was a new doc in town and he saved Cricket! He was a very sick boy for awhile but he pulled thru!

Today he is six months old! 

An ornery little cuss he is! But very smart too! 

Scarlett had a difficult time accepting him so she got the shot the put her thru labor again, and since then she has been a very good mommy.

So it should be weaning time, but I have a very hard time taking him away from mom. I am hoping she will wean him on her own and she is doing it a little bit at a time. I want Cricket to have a good mind set about him, so nothing to traumatizing for him. 

He is a lap baby, and I have taugh him to lay down by picking up his front left foot. He is of course to big to lay in my lap now, but he will lay down beside me. 

We are working on leading nice and calm now. Every day we work on leading he does a lot better than the time before. In the beginning he was really a very naughty boy. When he doesn’t get his way he likes to bite you. So we are working on this. Being a little stud colt it is a natural for him to do so. I can’t wait until his Jewels drop! They will go bye bye and that will take care of the biting. He knows he is not to bite, but the temptation is so raw for him. 


This was when was a couple weeks old.




My lap baby!




Crickets moto! 😂


Follow my blog for updates. With all the negativity any more on Facebook, I am going to take a break from there, and post more on my blog!

Jay

Oh my! I see that it has been two years since I have written in my blog! MY BAD! It has been a whirl wind. I miss Skittles every single day.  So much so that I needed to get over her. In order to do that, I let Scarlett go on vacation.

While she was away, she met this very nice gentleman, that was handsome and robust.


His name is:
Mountain Meadows Justin Tyme
But every calls him JAY.

She finally took a liking to him and now she is due to have her foal April First! Yes an April Fools baby. Of course it could be a week or two either side of that.

Scarlett A couple Weeks ago.

Some days she just looks so big. I have seen her belly move ever so slightly. So Exciting and waiting is so hard!

Since Skittles looked so much like daddy, I am hoping this baby looks like it's daddy too.

This winter we have had snow on the ground since December 6th 2016! It has been hard. Today we finally got REAL RAIN! Every bit of moisture that we have had over the winter has been in the form of snow! ICK! I am really tired of the white shit!

The critters have all seemed to come thru it so far unscathed like it was just a part of the normal around here. 

SPOILER ALERT:  I have goats! Yes five of them, and they will be making their appearance here too. They have been so much fun that I just can't stand it!  Very entertaining! Very lovable! And just so much fun to have around. I got them for weed control, and if you know me at all, they have become a beloved member of my family!

My new years resolution this year is to keep my blog up.
