Wowie!   That is good food.  Your family treats your animals like a million bucks.

I'm on my way out to dinner.  Never thought a colt's menu would make me hungry!

Just was wondering, what with his talent with jolly ball if he had the same birthday as Michael Jordan(Feb. 17).

This animal has certainly figured out what grain sacks are for.
Found out they make great fly swatters running across the pasture with a grain sack in your mouth flipping them from side to side hitting your butt with them and your chest and chasing the fence line with them in your mouth.You look like Mr. Big Stuff  too the rest of the horse on the other side of the fence. Scared them to to death.
But it sure pizzed off the bees and wild turkeys.

So sorry.   I know how that can be.  Taking care of family is very stressful when they get older.

Fuzzy, imagining all the fun your colt is having makes my day. He sounds like a real smart horse. 

What with jolly balls and grain sacks I'm surprised your pops hasn't had him sweep out the stable with a broom in his mouth. Although that might really frighten the turkeys if he decided the broom was his new toy.

Laurajean he has already broke so many brooms shovels and rakes manure forks it just on real like I said I am here to replace what ever my Dad thinks need to be so close to his pen.
Every night I get home I am going around the pen looking for stuff.
Tonight I get home and I walk around his pasture.
I look in his water tub and what do I behold?
Gloves shirts hammers post claw feed tub jolly balls and the great grand kids soccer balls and footballs tennis racket.
When I asked my Dad if he change the water today oh yes he did.
I asked how are all the great grand kids toys in the water tub.
Dad say "I guess the kids gave them to him".
I told my Dad one day you are going to come home and find one of them in the water tub.
Dad laughed then told me he was setting on the watter tub  petting the colt and stopped and the colt shoved Dad with his head and knocked Pops into his water tub on his keester and the kids helped Pops out of the water tub.
So now I know how all the crap got in the tub. Once Pops got knocked in the tub the grand kids thought it a game give horse something to throw in the tub.

This wkend I am watching Pops fight with this young colt.
Yes they were playing tug o war with the water hose.
Now if any have watched an over 80 year old man play tug o war with a water hose with a big young strappen yearling you just feel free to chime on in. Pops finally get the water hose away the colt act like he is going to bite Pops. Pop has water hose in one hand and drawn back open hand slap for the colt in the other colt turns act like he is going to walk away Pops turns to walk away with water hose Colt nips pops on lower part of buttocks and grabs the water hose out of his other hand. Colt runs to end of pasture with water hose blasting when the colt runs out of hose and it rips out of his mouth Pops comes running after the hose they both hit the hose at the same time Pops get major bath from colt holding hose on Pop.
Now if I can only teach this Colt to wash the car and water the lawn.
It just seems like the Colt has this fascination of hosing down Pops.

That is one smart horse you have there.  Does he have any older siblings and were they as active as this yearling is at their age.  Love these stories Fuzzy and I was just thinking of writing to you to find out the latest news from the farm. carrot
