Re: WOW!!!!!

silly me forgot to mention that we encountered the savage arabian and 
hungarian eating muddholes.. yep ALL three balked.. Ansata being the hero I 
let her to be lead the way with much coaxing from mom and lots of heels in 
the side. Yep she too had to trust mom to make her go on and realize that 
the Savage arabian and hungarian eating muddholes were very tame... they 
only eat shorter unknowingly crabbets!

I have to throw this in the next morning Ansata and Haley couldn't figure 
out how to get from the pasture they were in to the feed bucket. Until the 
Cows lead them through. I sat and watched with much frustration THIS IS MY 
Carla (heading to work in with many groans it is soo pretty outside!)
Ansata (MOM there is a fence in the way of my feed bucket!)
Haley ( i can jump it i can jump it... nope to tall!)
Rob (this is too funny to watch!)
