We’ve officially managed to do a decent job of grooming the herd. They don’t look like wooly beasts anymore thanks to lots of currying, brushing and the shedding blade. Our Vet was here Friday and they all got some of their Spring shots. The dentist will be here Monday. I’ve started cleaning the barn from top to bottom. Cob webbing is not one of my favorite things. You’d be amazed at how much dust builds up in the loft, and on walls, corners and ceiling fans in a barn over the winter. When I was done I looked like one of the horses after a good roll in the dirt.
Gunnar (the pup) is doing very well after his surgery. He met up with our resident fox last night that was in the small pasture on the side. There was a lot of barking and they simply stared at each other for a while. Once we investigated the barking and found out what all the commotion was about, Gunnar was told it was okay and how brave he was. Then he went and found his “lambie” for extra protection and everything settled down.
Here are a few pictures of some of the grooming victims:
|Blue - "Oh no, just how many brushes do you have in that box!"|
|Glad that's over with.|
|Sami - Is this the cutest little guy ever?|
|He sure is the sweetest.|
|Nate - " I'll put my ears up when I start enjoying myself"|
|O'Grady - " I seem to have this pouffy dandelion forelock thing going on"|
|But just as handsome as ever|
|Donnie - "Umm, I could use another treat, that was exhausting"|
|Dusty - "I'm not sure this is the fashion statement I want to make for the Spring"|
|Just look at that face, I'd say she's pretty mad at me right about now.|
|Hi, it's me Gunnar! Don't know why I'm on a leash, I wasn't digging again...really.|
|Posing for "PLAYDOG MONTHLY"|
|"C'mon Maggie, lets play with my new rubber chicken toy"|
|" I'm a lady, I don't play with rubber chickens. He's such a little pest"|
|Looking this sad ought to get someone to play with me.|
|Milo - The original Grumpy Cat who hates both dogs and is never done hissing and growling at them.|
