I have become extremely laaayyyy-zzzeeeeee over the last couple of weeks and I need a swift kick in the butt to get rolling again.
It's been nice though. My Honey has had quite a bit of time off lately, has gotten rested up and even started a diet as soon as we got home from Vegas. Eleven pounds in two weeks!
Doesn't it just drive ya nuts that all they have to do is eliminate a few things from their diets and the pounds just melt off of them?
We had planned on heading to Arizona for several days after Christmas, but I found out my nephew and his mom are staying with her family on the other side of Colorado over the holidays and we made arrangements to go over the mountains to pick him up for a few days. I haven't seen my nephew since the summer of '06. We're all pretty excited to get to have him until after the New Year.
So, I guess the ponies will get a few more days off....
Although, it ended up being perfect timing as we woke up to a bit of winter this morning. It's not cold or anything (although snow always makes it look so). As you can see, I got really lazy and started letting the boys free feed. I thought I would try it to see if they were going to gorge themselves and waste a bunch of hay, but these ranch ponies know the routine-LOL. Once they get filled up, they come and go. It's going to reduce my hay costs by about half. LOVE IT!
