Marc Austin-- so funny!!! I mean, wow, that would have scared me too, but it's funny after the fact. Those horses are beautiful, there's no way I could afford them. I'm thinking what they must cost to feed them! I feed my horses pretty well, and I think they would make me go broke! I bet they need a pretty high protein %. But if I did have one I think I'd have to keep their tails and manes in braids all the time with tail covers. I have a boy now that has an insanely loooong tail. I hate to say, but I used to put his tail in covers, and they do work, but they wear out fast when it's an every day thing. So now?? Horse people will cringe-- but I cut his tail and keep it up off the ground that way! LOL
I had all of these posts Multi'd and my mom came over to use my computer so she could get her email and she clicked my browser CLOSED! Argh! So I lost everything. So I'm doing this by memory..
Danz, beautiful picture of your Tyggy! I hope she will be okay. I understand your attachment, they are just family, is all. That is amazing that you are catching so many mice at a time.
Trish, what a long day yesterday for you! It's too bad your GD was cranky too. But I'm sure it's tough on her not having both parents close at hand. I'm so sorry about your son's GF, it doesn't sound like she is doing well at all. That is terrible news. I was just thinking about her today! I'm glad you updated us, I'll be sure to pray for her.
Tweety- love your new puppy! Adorable dog, and looks like he's going to be a big one! Hope you're hanging in there and feeling well.
I went to Valley Feed and Seed today and bought some leg bands. This is because I just need them fast. I plan on buying ABA bands to get my birds in "official" bands later. But for the purpose of getting them tested and the forms sent in on time-- I didn't think I had enough time. Maybe I did.. I don't know. I hate to feel rushed. These were cheap enough, and they can be used again and again. I need to get perm bands for them, or I can just leave these on. I'm going to do all of my record keeping in pencil so I can erase the numbers if/when I get the other bands and get those put on them.
Here's a funny--- I bought a shampoo I've never heard of for dogs. It's called "Sho Sno Whitener Shampoo" and it says "Whiter than White' and Moisturizes Too!". I'm going to give it a test run on one of my birds (one I'm not taking to the show--in case it messes them up!) and see if it brightens them up. I don't know if this is "blueing" or not. The shampoo is a deep purple color. It says to shampoo your "dog"-- and leave in for 2 minutes and then rinse off. Says it "Highlights and enhances all shades of brown, black, red or gray coats, providing the optimum in color contrasts. So, I'm hoping that my grungy splash birds (I won't use this on my blues and blacks) will brighten up and get rid of any yellow. We shall see!! Wish me luck! I was told not to use blueing on Splash birds-- so I'm hoping this will work instead, since it doesn't say it's blueing and it is supposed to work on lighter colors. I just want dazzling bright and clean/clear colors on them! If this doesn't work, then I'm probably going to go ahead and buy blueing and try it out on another bird that isn't going and see how bad it is or if it really will work. Maybe they are Debbie Downers and just don't want me to show up with flashy Splash's.... or maybe they are really trying to be helpful and don't want me to "paint" my birds purple! LOL
