Weekend Warrior

I had a lot work to get done this weekend. My garden was a jungle and Winston is getting looked at next week so he needed new pictures and his tootsies done. 

I started on Saturday with tackling my garden. The edges are all weedy and needed whacking down. Disappointingly, I'm still sore from weed whacking. Wow I need to workout more. I forgot to take an after picture but you can see just how bad it is here. I was able to harvest an eggplant, carrots, peas, and a zucchini. It was only 11 AM and already almost 100 degrees. No thanks. I met up with a friend for lunch and came home to the wonderful A/C. 

Sunday the farrier came out to trim the boys. I don't have much experience with baby horses so I had very low expectations of their behavior. Baby Z is still afraid of the halter so I got up early to have extra time to work with him before the farrier arrived. Surprisingly, I slowly got him haltered pretty easily in just a few minutes! I spent the extra time walking him around and then let him enjoy his breakfast. 

This was his second time getting a trim and he was a little squirrely but mostly behaved. I'm glad the boys think so fondly of me; they rested their distraught little heads on my chest almost the entire time. 

Winston was a frantic little baby for just getting his hoofies picked and was a spinning dragon. For whatever reason though, as soon as she began the trim he seemed to remember what was going on and was suddenly on his best baby horse behavior. I keep telling Win that he needs to stop being a good baby horse because I love him and want to buy him and will be sad if he leaves me. 

Also kitten picture because THOSE FACES.


  1. Ugh I am so jealous of people's garden vegetables, but I don't want to do any gardening work myself

  2. I stick to container gardening because I haaaaaate doing all the work that's associated with the regular kind. You have my respect!

  3. Awww, kittens!!! I did some weeding myself, although I am not disciplined enough to grow vegetables. I have asparagus taking over that I never harvest.
