Now it is later on in the afternoon and Alex and I have decided that we are going to go out to the farm right outside of Indianola and trim the horses feet. Of course I didn't help in the 'trimming' but I did manage to take some pictures of the animals they have running around out there.
The farm isn't like what you would think when I say 'farm' in southwest Nebraska. It is a farm in the sense that it is located out of city limits. There are some acres that are also included in the farm but farming is not their full-time job. It is recreational - at least that is what I call it but they might have a few other choice words to use instead of recreational!!!
My friends have asked me what we do when we go out to the farm and although these pictures really don't show you what I do out there, I just thought it would be fun to show you what's all out there at the farm. Actually - these pictures do show you what I do - nothing!!!
Alex showing me how all the cool kids are wearing their jeans/boots nowadays!
I swear they have cat food but apparently the corn is that good!
This is a picture of Thunder. The picture looks this way because I think he was kicking up some dirt when he first stepped around. He is the first horse that gets to go through the torture of getting his feet trimmed - actually I don't think it is that torturous, just uncomfortable for them. (I think that's what Alex said!!)
I had a picture of him clipping Thunder but I must have deleted it. Anyway, he clips then does what I call 'files the nail' but don't go repeating that to someone who knows because then you will look like an idiot. There is real terminology but I forgot it already!!
This is Buck. He is a pretty old horse but Alex still uses him to head. He still is a good horse for roping - takes off pretty fast. (No, I don't know that for sure, but that's what I have heard! I don't rope!!)Action shot of Buck!!! Alex riding Katie bareback. Alex being mean to the kitty.
Colonel giving Alex kisses.
The rooster!!! I was looking for him all afternoon and couldn't find him anywhere. Finally, when I was about to give up - out he came!!
So, now Bob is back with the Billy!! Eveyone is so excited - well I don't know about everyone but I think the Nannies were....
Here is the new Billy in the trailer.
Bob also got three Nannies along with this Billy.
The goats patiently awaiting the arrival of their new mate!!
Maybe not patiently awaiting.....
Trying to sneak a peak....
Alex actually might be helping a little in this shot.
End of the day, time to go home.
