Awhile ago I was watching my friend Phebe's animals for her, just the dogs, cat and goat. I mentioned that I could look after the horses sometime. I never mentioned that I am a little bit afraid of them. They are so huge to me after having sheep all these years. I figured I could come around and get used to being around a horse and then when she needed help I'd be more at ease. Well the need for help came before I could do anything else. This is something I have wanted to do so I said sure I can do it. Yikes what was I thinking.
I went over to her house before she left and went in the corral with the horses and it seemed easy at the time. I really should have gone when she was feeding to see how you manage to get the get the gate open and carry hay and not let the horses get out at the same time. There are 2 sets I need to feed. First is a mom and baby I think you call them a mare and filly. Well to compound things when I tried to feed them the goat kept trying to butt me. So I ended up just throwing the hay over the fence. I am not very courageous am I. I ended up doing the same thing in the corral with the 3 other big horses. I think when she gets back I will have to spend some time over there so I am a little more comfortable. Of course I was a little paranoid that I hadn't closed one gate secure enough so I go back in the backyard and the goat comes after me again. Yikes this is going to be a fun weekend. I may have to call it 'attack by the killer goat' by the time I am through.
We went to a baseball game with our minor league team the Chuckars. They built a new stadium and this was the first time we had been there. What a difference! Although the team lost it still was a nice outing for the four of us. I am having a bonfire for the full moon tonight. It should a nice night for it, The moon looked really incredible at the game last night.
