It's Friday and after today I will be off until next Friday. It sucks that I have to come in that one day but I know myself and by then I will be glad to come in to work.
I got a lot of my Christmas shopping completed last night in one trip to Walmart. I love when that happens. I still have Abby to buy lots of presents. I need to go to Toys R' Us for most of what is on her list. I did find a really neat dinosaur purse for her. She loves dinosaurs and she is at that age where she wants to act bigger.
I took some pictures of some of the miniature horses I pass every day on my way to work. They aren't the best because I was hurried by motorists that kept coming behind me and it was cloudy but here goes.
This one has a donkey in it. They are great to keep critters like coyotes and wild dogs out of pastures. I have seriously considered getting a Jenny (a female donkey) for my pasture.
Aren't they just as cute as a bug's ear? I am going to try to get some pictures of the ones that are around the corner from my house. They are very pretty and wild as a buck. Every time I ride past them they get so excited.
That same day I got some pictures of neighborhood horses with their heads in round bales of hay. Some of you were wanting to see what that looked like after my post the other day.
Here is a picture of some round bales sitting in a field close to my house. These actually have plastic around them for protection. I really like this form of baling because you can leave them uncovered and they stay fresh.
This picture shows one that has been sitting in the weather uncovered. They hay is still good but that is why the horses drill their heads in the middle.
PonyGirl, that might answer your question about the outside of the hay and if it goes to waste or not.
