SATURDAY IS PHOBLOG DAY!






On this holiday weekend, we have the girls so we will probably do activities…

Today, we are going to a big Dog Show at the local fairgrounds.   Should be fun!  Hubby usually gets all worked up about a puppy he adores and wants to bring home… and then he will spend the next several hours telling himself how upset Shiva would be and that he needs to wait.

I just smile.  And to think, before he met me, dogs were not even in his thoughts.  I’ve either cursed him or blessed him…  ;)

HERE WE GO!

Hubby sent this to me… he wants to get one for Shiva! I once put a GoPro on Norma, my donkey. It was a half hour of Donkovision!

Perfect timing because he looks like he is smiling, but he’s just grabbing.

BODHI IS BAAAAAACK!!






Wahoo!

The Big Man, the One and Only, the Bubba of the Herd… Heeeeeeeere’s BODHI!

Bodhi is big on kisses... loves to give and receive!

Bodhi is big on kisses… loves to give and receive!

SO SOON?…

Bodhi went off to spend some quality time with Auntie Leslie who had hoped to ride him and use him more often than he was being ridden here.

However, Auntie Leslie’s life changed quite abruptly and she was no longer able to care for Bodhi.

Of course our door is always open so he came back home – sooner than expected – and we are thrilled to have the big man back in da house!

Handsome... He hadn't been in this pasture for a very long time.  "Are you sure?"

Handsome… He hadn’t been in this pasture for a very long time. “Are you sure?”

BODHI LEARNED A HUGE LESSON WHILE GONE…

Auntie Leslie has very large draft horses.

Bodhi is the biggest horse here and he pushed his way around.  Not great for making friends…

But, not anymore!

Hmmmmm.

Me thinks he got his little croup kicked a few times by the BIG BOYS.

Bodhi is much, much more humble.  He isn’t fighting or acting obnoxious with the others.

In fact, I put him in with Rojo and the Mustangs (sounds like a band, right?) and Bodhi is #4!

I cannot believe it!

Thank you, Auntie Leslie’s horses!

The first day I put Bodhi in Rojo's pasture, he didn't challenge anyone and hung around near his old friend, Gwen.

The second day, they ate closer together…

This morning, best of friends again.

I’D FORGOTTEN HOW LOVEY HE IS…

Bodhi loves attention!

When I let Bodi, Gwen and Sam out yesterday, Bodhi immediately went over to Tess’ barn gate and knocked over her garbage can.  I set it back up and he knocked it over instantly.

I waited a bit so as not to train him that when he knocks over the garbage can, I pet him… and then I spent some quality time gnoogeying him and taking his sniffs and kisses.  Such a sweet, big lug of a boy!

Rubs and kisses

Gnoogies on the head…

And a break to speak to Mama Tess’ assistant from the barn.

I’LL HAVE FUN FATTENING HIM UP!

As with all of my animals, I love to feed  (hate to cook).

So, I will enjoy fattening him up.

As I put him away yesterday, he seemed sad to see me leave.

Such a great horse!

He seemed sad to have me leave... I'll have fun fattening him up!
