|The Blanket Flower jumped out of the flower bed and started growing in the lawn. I'm hoping it continues its migration into the orchard. I love these flowers.|
|Poppies are supposed to be done blooming by now. These didn't get the message.|
|Easter lilies are blooming. I don't like this angle but with my cast, I couldn't get low with the camera. Grrrr.|
Jackson is packing on weight again. We moved him out of the paddock when Winston arrived and then never moved him back in since he was getting along okay with the herd. However, he is getting chubby and he is also getting bites from the others (I suspect Winston). He can't move fast on those laminitic feet so he gets nailed. We put him back in the paddock where we can regulate his hay intake and where he can socialize without being bullied. I gave him a bath. He was pleased.
I was very popular at lunch time. Kalvin and Flash came up from the bottom of the pasture where they were napping under the oak trees to meet me, nickering as they came.
I tried to get a good picture of Kalvin, but he wouldn't keep his head out of the hay long enough for me to do so. He is going to be moving to the barn where his owner works on July 1st. We will miss him but it is best all the way around. Kalvin and his owner have an amazing bond. They will be together every day when he moves. Kalvin will live in a stall with a large run out. I think he'll be happy. He loves being in the barn; he has spent most of his life there and I think it is a place of security for him. Since we got Winston, he hasn't had a stall in the barn and he complains about that. He stands behind the run-ins and paws at the gates. His move will also mean less for us to muck and that's a good thing too. Especially since I can't help Brett with my broken foot.
He will leave here fat, shiny, sassy and sound. We feel good about that.
