A sleeping puppy. So tired that he fell asleep while he was eating.
But seriously, after a day of running helter skelter from one end of Linn Cty to the other, we finally got all the goals accomplished. One fourlegged creature is now residing 5 miles down the road in my brother's pasture--Bye Lardeo or rather, see ya later. Dad's buckskin paint mare who is 17 is now going to try to temp my niece to go horse crazy.

While the Ms has a new toy all her own! Please meet Rio aka Rio Grande Style. He's a 7 yr old registered sorrel overo paint gelding. Though you can't see it in the photo, his right eye is blue! I love glass eyes! He's a real doll and handling most of the transition well. Moo likes him as well as Phoenix but the big girls-being bullies. So he's spending some time in the stall to get acclimated as well as some time to doctor his feet. Yeah, he needs some TLC on his hooves but nothing we haven't dealt with before, just chipped a little too short so he's very tender.
A steal if I do say so myself! Can't wait to get him out to the shows in the spring. He's got some really great horses behind him and we might be fighting over who gets to ride him more!

The Dirty Dozen are now 8 weeks old and driving me nuts. Wormed, first shots and they have grown attitudes. In about 2 weeks, the start heading out to their homes. I can't wait for the quiet! I have found a couple great homes in MN for show puppies and the pets are heading to all corners of the US. Now to decide who we will keep!

Later gators...
