Dude is making new friends:



He is learning quick how things work here and getting along fine. A very good boy.

Sidenote on Oakie: his turds weren't quite up to snuff still so I fed him some hoss probiotics (probios gel in this case) and everthing went right back to perfect. Turns out the dewormers can sometimes do a job on the gut bacteria as well. Crackers, what a learning curve.

ALSO: the boy and I put the weight tape on Tires the pig this weekend, and with 47 days until the fair he weighs at least 185 pounds. So Tires is right on schedule to make the fair at about 240 pounds of delicious pig.

Oh yeah, I recently roasted a turkey. I've had 2 great turkey dinners, about a half dozen turkey sandwiches, I made a huge tub of turkey salad, a turkey and beef meatloaf, and tonight I am making turkey enchiladas to finish off the bird. Turkey is a very versatile meat, goes a long way and is super cheap.

We usually buy at least one extra at Thanksgiving when they are extra cheap and throw them in the freezer.  Plus, boil the carcass for turkey stock.

So sorry.  14 years is a good run.  I'm sure he was the best boy.

It's OK, 14 good years for one bad day is a hella fair trade. I brought him home from the vet and chopped a five foot deep hole into the clay next to Shep the Sheep and put him home the last time.

ALSO: Geronimo is a very good boy, but he's been taking some work. He didn't bond real well with Spouse and when she first got in the saddle for a backyard test he was...difficult.

Scared her enough that she took Coco from me and I got the Geronimo training.

He's a good solid hoss, he just has a high 'flight response' to new shit. After two weeks he will willingly let me take all four feet (at first he was super-spooky about his back feet) and groom him and put on scary flymasks with velcro closures and all the other standard ground work. I got him so he tolerates the fly spray bottle (ohhhh that squirting sound!) and he now whickers at me and comes to the fence when he sees me coming.

I started my advanced 'weird and woolly shit' desensitizing training, where I've been leading him around the back lot and doing goofy shit, like walking right up and over the picnic table and dunking my head in the pool and walking up to the house and leaning in the back door and standing on top the mounting block and putting my knee and full weight in the middle of his back and then leaning over and laying on him in a U shape like a dead man and slapping his belly with my danging hands.

The worst thing that has happened so far is yesterday morning I was putting on his fly mask in the dark before feeding time and Coco, impatient for food, leaned over the fence and bit him in the ass while I had his head in my hands and the mask half-on. He rear up and romped out of range, but he didn't strike at me in his panic, so good. I got the mask on him with a minimal of fuss after that.

I've put him on the lead and walked him through the gates and out to the trails, he handled that fine after a few snorts.

I'm going to put the saddle on him and ride him around the back yard tonight, if that goes well I'll put him on a lead and pony him along behind Oakie for tonight's ride. Going out with his herd partners for the new trails is probably going to be the easiest way to break him in gentle.

If you never hear from me again, it means shit went sideways. Been real, folks.
