    I wanted to share some pics of some critters that I am pet sitting for, in essence. I am helping scbatz33, another BYCer, by doing evening feeding and care when she cannot be home in the evenings. I just absolutely love these gals. Not all are there everytime I go but most of them are.

    First, the one and only Precious. She is not always at the farm but she is a love. Great guard dog too. Beside her is the puppy, Dixie.

    The other farm guardian is Fred, the goose. Fred is a girl but the name just sorta stuck. If you need an alarm on your farm...get a goose!

    Some of her chickens...

    Then, my loves, the horses. She has Thoroughbred race horse mares


    First is Pumpkin Roll, whom I believe is due to foal in February:

    Then MMSBuffAndStuff whom I believe is due in March. I did not get a picture of her foal who was busy taking a beauty nap on the hill:

    Then my favorite girl, Go Go Zen and her foal:

    a good pic of her foal, this little girl is a speed demon already

    Then the other charges ...

    Fairness who is a warmblood mare and a BIG girl

    Then there is the Percheron cross mare, Mooney

    So, if you get a chance to help out a neighbor and fellow BYCer...go for it. The rewards are lots of animal love and a lot of pleasure. It feels good to help the critters.

    I love the first pic! Did you know there is a new movie coming out in October about Secretariat? It's the life story of Penny Chenery, his owner.

    Oh yes...waiting patiently. They are using real footage of his races so it will be a great walk down memory lane. We are going to go see it at the drive-in in Paris...not far from his resting place.
