Would someone please tell me what has gotten into the animals here on this patch of land??? I told you the pigs had been trying to break out, unsuccessfully, but there was evidence. Peter trying to eat Buster...
Now this evening I go out and Hank looks as if he is going to get an attitude with me! He is following be around and I turn around and he starts pecking the ground like he is looking for a confrontation! I grabbed a stick and told him to not even start with me or else!
Its ten o'clock and I go to take Tip out and the freakin' horse is in the VERY SMALL standing room only fenced off section around the dining room window. I have flowers in there and when we first got him he tried to eat the siding off the house. He just HAD to force his big stupid head in around the steps til the metal fence post broke off at the base...then of course his stupid body had to follow his stupid head to get to those last blades of grass behind the fencing. So there he stood, just standing there like a big dummy not knowing how he got in or how to get out.
Here I come with the driving whip...giving him a good prodding to get out. I told him he got in there he can figure out real quick how to get out. I rigged it all up (oh yes, it looks very ramshackled and attractive) with a piece of fencing and a few bungie cords til morning. I am sure he will be right back over there and do his best to get back in there. I swear he will do anything to eat himself to death! Sometimes I wonder why I do any of it when there are days like this. :(
PITA...that is what we should have named him. You know what that is short for. Would have been the perfect name for him.
Lets not forget in all the excitement Tip thought she needed to get in on the action and get all up in my way while trying to get the horse out of the cramped little fenced off area. She kept running up and I dont know what she thought she was going to do...but I whapped that whip down on the ground and told her to back off...had to do that twice!!! I guess she thought it was all a big funtime game. I know she wasnt going to herd the horse, she is terrified of him.
GRRRRRRRRRRRRR! AHHHHHHHH! I am going to lose my mind, and right here at bedtime too. Someone got a horse trank? Its not for the horse...its for the crazy lady sitting over in the corner mumbling something to herself incoherently.
Okay, all kidding aside, isnt it always like this when you are JUST about to go to bed!?!?! Well not always, but the once and a while makes up for the always.
I always said...you need a brick wall to keep livestock in, and even then, I wonder if they could get past that.
I am going to go to bed now...and when I get up in the morning things will be better...right? Right.
