A Few Updates....

Hello! It's been awhile again - things just don't seem to want to slow down! We just finished up the regular season of soccer, then my oldest was asked to be on the All Stars team....so we have a few more weeks before D's season ends. We were ecstatic! He always works so hard, but this year he finally made it! He was one of 18 picked out of 50! Districts are on November 8th...wish us luck!

The puppies are doing great - gaining weight and playing like puppies should. They are the sweetest things! I believe my folks want to keep all three, but if they can find the perfect home for any of them, they might let one or two go...Mom finally decided on names. Max is the grey boy, Salley is the black one iwth the least amount of white, and Boots is the girl with the most white. She should be named Sassy or Fiesty or Ferocious or something like that. She is the smallest, but the toughest of the three! We are all enjoying them so much!





They love meal time!



Fun in the tent! The puppies loved it as much as A and B!



A with Boots - this is A's favorite one...



Papa and A enjoying a laugh...




Mom and her puppy, Salley...


Salley is loving the attention, too. :) She looks pretty content, huh?

Well, nothing much is going on with the horses right now. I made it out to brush Filly the weekend before last, but didn't work her or anything. She'll head back to Pike Road after the first freeze. May not be too far off since this morning it was 36 degrees! I don't remember it being this cold so early in the season! We are normally sweating our hineys off in our Halloween costumes! Fall is my favorite time of year, so I really wish it would last a good while longer.

I've been digging up some old photos of the horses. I came across one of Maggie from 1987 that I'll have to post.

I took some photos of Filly the last time I saw her...she looks super! She has not rubbed at all, so she has a mane and tail again! No bare spots at all. It is such a relief. L was sweet enough to let Filly go back to her place next spring, so that's the plan for now. My hubby mentioned something about working on the barn again, so just maybe we can get that done before next spring...at least I am keeping my fingers crossed. I didn't have anyone to hold her, so I had her rope looped on the fence...it got long when she reahed back to scratch an itchy spot...



Filly has a mane and tail!!! Yeah!!!!!!!!!!


You can see where she rubbed out the middle part of her tail, just under the white part. It looks funny, but I'm just letting it grow!

Drew hasn't even had a chance to ride Tonto lately, so that little fellow is getting really fat. He's still living in the fat pen...poor guy.



Other than that, things are ticking along. Sam is still here and seems to be happy. Hope all is well with you!

Glad all is well with you!

Those are some fantastic soccer shots :)

And the puppies looks so much better than the thin, ribby critters they were - happy to be playing with the kids & getting all that cuddling. Too cute.

I sympathize about the lack of horse time. Seems like as soon as school starts & daylight dwindles, the world gets super crazy. Finger crossed it slows down soon!
