    Are we watching another mare yet? Have I missed pictures of Karla's babies? Am I a slug or what? Painting a living room when I could be watching foals be born?????

    Catch me up, I'm in withdrawals. Besides which I need something to keep me in my bed watching a mare so the soreness will go away.

    Hugs everyone,
    Sharon

    Oh--I hope you're not sore for long! Did you try tea with honey and Ibuprofen? So, what color?

    I just came in from the barn--and both udders have grown from this morning... but I still think we're a few days away. The milk isn't sticky at all, and the mares aren't stomping, or tail swishing. I've seen a few belly bies though. :wink: I checked them every two hours last night... and will tonight, but I'm not expecting anything to share with you for a bit...

    and I'm very tired... so headed to bed for a few.

    I'm sure Kay will post another thread once she puts Star in the stall. I know her cam is down at the moment.

    Oh no...it's just not time for anyone to be in the stall yet.

    I went over to Bit O Blue and the cam there doesn't seem to be working. I just get a black screen. :(
    I haven't really had much time to watch anything lately. Have some things I need to get done around the house. Plus, Courtney has a JOB ! ! ! ! WOOHOO!! SO, I'll be taking her back and forth to work until we can get her a drivers license. That should take about a month or so. UGH!

    Oh, wonderful! Lots of taxi service and house things! I'm so sick of painting that I'd take taxi duty for you if I could! :| Now is that desparate or what?

    What work is she doing? Is she taking college courses online or will she wait until she gets back here? NC has lots of nice colleges...hint hint! :wink:

    She's got a job at a health food store. It's a nice place. The lady that owns it ONLY hires military spouses/family members, so it's a good thing.
    She's taking classes online with Univ of MD, only has 2 that she is signed up for at the moment, but has to wait until next semester because the lady at the college here forgot to send in the paperwork. UGH!

    You could come over and set up a chair by my pastures... I'd appreciate it so I could go to Easter dinner. :wink:

    Karla, I would love it!!! You got any ideas what I can do with the houseful of people that are going to want Easter Dinner here???

    Guess I am just a little bummed out today. No help from any family, just the come over and sit down to eat kind. 12 or more coming over this afternoon(always a couple that don't let you know they are coming!) Mom would help if she could, but she is still in terrible pain from the broken tailbone.
    Thanks for listening, I think I feel better. Hope the mares wait till after the dishes are done!!!

    Just checked udders and under tails for the third time today (it's only 9:30 AM!) and Chloe looks just too puckery/loose back there for me to leave.. so it's going to be a quiet Easter Sunday for me. It's windy and cold--20-25 mph and 35*--so I'll want to get them in stalls later anyway. I really wanted to see Rachel--her dad is picking her up and her brother is taking her home--but she'll be home mid May for a few days before she heads to Alaska... sigh.... guess I'll get some quilting done.


    Just read your note, Tink's Mom. I would love some company today! Just fix the food--set the table and let them all fend for themselves. Then come here. :wink: I feel badly about not contributing to dinner at the in-laws, but my m-i-l loves this stuff and doesn't want anything... she knows I'm on mare stare now anyway.... I'll have to have them over later to make up for it. I always help a ton with clean up when I'm there...

    Aww....I'm sorry you can't spend part of the day with everyone, but I'm sure they all understand the needs of the horses. Have a quiet day finishing some sewing and checking the girls. Maybe you'll have an Easter foal? Wouldn't that be nice? :)
    And, maybe you'll get some leftovers brought home too! :)

    Tink's Mom--Just leave 'em all, our family lives far away and we would love company although I have to tell you we are going "out". The kitchen is closed!
    Or, just get a few pizzas---sounds good to me. Shame on your family for not volunteering to bring sides dishes or whatever. (and don't forget the paper plates!--get pretty ones with flowers or Easter Eggs on them...festive, don't you think?)


    Karla--sorry, you have barn duty but we'll be so excited to see your new little ones.......it's not too long until May and Rachel will be home. I really missed mine when they went away to school, too, and enjoyed the summers. (until they got jobs elsewhere....lol)


    Terri--Well, how was Easter? Big dinner? I hope you didn't forget Big Boy, he expects little treats on special days.


    Amma---I think you had just better own up to it and get a baby of your own to watch! Who wouldn't want a miniature horse??????


    Mimi---Have you had a cold or something, sorry to hear you have been under the weather.....apparently I missed that somewhere along the way

    I've been watching the Pacific Pintos mares. Two have foals in the stalls, really cute, and two are due "soon".

    Well, I will surely be waiting to hear if we have a filly tonight... Will make the company so much better.

    Yes, I am going with Chinet plates. I have a dishwasher, but with all the other extras, it will still be 2 loads without the dinner plates. Why don't you stop by for dessert? I'm having lemony cupcakes with fluffy white frosting and cheesecake. I'll put the coffee on and the front light...

    I would love to have a mini :D :D I started playing with them 18 years ago when my brother's neighbors had them :D :D I do not think that they would enjoy apartment living or I would have one :D I could just see the neighbors faces as I took them for a walk :roll: :lol: :roll:

    Thanks for the invitation! We would love to come, the cupcakes sound so good for Spring, but we're a little too far away.....sigh

    Having been in your spot many times, I would actually like to help you load the dishwasher, etc.......and besides I make terrific deviled eggs!
