A Silly Video of Dyfra and I~

This is how you get on your Icelandic. Lateral Flextions and then, you have to kick start just like an Motorcycle. LOL
Dyfra just loves to be itched and silly as she is, she really enjoys it. Is hard to see in the Video, just how much her nose is going.
Horse people will under stand what I mean. ;O)
Thank you DS for taking the Video short.

Dyfra and I, in July

Its little over 70* this morning and 100% drippy, but I wanted to sneak in a ride
while the bread was rising.
Have not had any photos of Dyfra and I  done, since we arrived in VA. So I had DS, take some photos of us.

This is not your perfect Icelandic Horse and rider photo. LOL.. The clothes of the day i,s a bareback pad, shorts and clogs.
Is funny how I feel like I am on a bigger horse when riding Dyfra, who is all of 12.3 hands tall,  compared to Stjarna who is 13.3 hands tall and feels like a smaller horse.

This photo was taken into the morning sun, so it did not come out as well.

Shinny Maggie ~~

Maggie was so shinny in the morning sun the other day, I had to take some photos.
Excuse the angle in the above shot, it really does make her backside look big! 

Close up of her face, can see she is getting so many white hairs in her age, she now has a little spot on her forehead. 

Just love the glint in her eye in this photo. She is such an adorable wee horse.

Won a Kindle Fire~~

Can't believe it, someone pinch me... LOL
I won a Kindle Fire.
 First gadget I have owned and now trying to learn how to use it. ;O)

Lots of T&L Storms and then a big one last Friday...

 That was one really big, really impressive storm!

Ya, that was a lot of fun last Friday..... not!  No power for about 18
hours...glad I did not get the food shopping done like I was planning too.
But we are lucky, we know people that still do not have power in this
heat, no good that.
Had a Tornado try to form up by the road but luckily it did touch down.
Did sound like a freight train for awhile and weird how some stuff was
tossed around by the wind, while other stuff wasn't touched
News said there were more deaths and damage from this storm,
compared with the last official Hurricane.
Before this storm, we have had  T&L for a few days before and after
the big one...
One of them even nuked the microwave. Sigh ~~

Swear I am living on another planet.
No photos because most of the storm was a night.

Fly sheets, Fly masks and .......

The Flies are really bad here, so these fly masks keeps the flies out of their eyes and ears, and fly sheets, keeps the flies off the main part of their bodies.
The areas where they are not covered up, I am having to use a lot more fly spray than what I would like, but there is no other recourse right now.  They have to have some relief.
I also have three types of fly traps up and an automatic fly spray device in the shed, so they can have a break when eating.
Have also put out a triple dose of "Fly Predators" for the last three months.
Slowly starting to see results but there are still a lot more biting insects here, than we had in Oregon.
