Pretty Momma was feeling very photogenic...but not so cooperative in having her kids.
The girls have been putting in major work on those blackberry bushes. Xan and I started hacking away with machete's today.
The chickens are starting to roam more of the property, I have had another hen go missing. It is hard to keep them in their pen...even though it is 54 feet by 53 feet, but if I keep losing chickens we may have to.
Our old chicken run got turned into a bunny tractor for my 4 girls to share. We covered the bottom in wire so they can get to the grass to eat it, but can't dig out and escape.
Kitsune, always a big help should you ever have a sudden urge to throw a toy.
So far so good...the buns seem to enjoy the room.
We gave Ava a little lunge workout today. Since she seems to like Jason he is learning to do some of this horse stuff. She did pretty good for him, but she is a horse that likes to test so I had to jump in a time or two and kick her butt.
Of course Kitsune and her toy had to get involved. I'm glad dogs don't bother her.
Jason wants to build me a round pen out here somewhere...it will be nice to have an enclosed space to work her.
And down goes the sun...still waiting on babies.
I forgot to share my new trailer. We took a little road trip a couple days ago and came back with a huge beast of a trailer.
It is maybe a little over kill on size, but there is no way I'm getting Ava into a small one again. This bad boy is a 4 horse that they turned into a 3 horse large breed size. It has a big walk in tack room and a ramp instead of step up...which we are hoping Ava will like better. After our last trailer fiasco I am a little scared, so hopefully now that we have a huge 7 foot 1" tall trailer she will load and unload like a dream. Fingers crossed.
Finally like 11:30 tonight. Jason and I went to check on her about 11 and it looked like she was getting real close. I am glad Jason was there to help, he held the flashlight while I caught the first baby and started drying...then when Momma had the second one, before I even got the first one dry Jason helped dry too. Better pics tomorrow...it was bed time for all. Welcome to the world you two!
