Journey of Quilting + spring

The Grass IS greener...

I'm sure you have heard of that saying: "the grass is always greener"
The horses exhausted the current pasture and we have reached the point of having to expand their grazing area...

Meanwhile... back in the kitchen, Anne Marie is baking bread and hamburger buns, unaware that she was learning a valuable lesson, once again, on the farm...

Yes, the grass is greener, but very very sweet and rich in the spring time, which we already knew, and were regulating the horses' time out in the new pasture, BUT, Jordan (the white mare) came down with colic!! Here's a 15 hand horse that weighs seriously 1,300lbs. and Anne Marie's over in the pasture with flip flops and a skirt on trying to move her! You have to keep them moving — no rolling — the whip had to be used, and it budged her to sit up, I grabbed the halter (as her eyes were rolling in the back of her head and she's hyperventilating like... not to mention me!), hooked it up real quick like, and pulled her with all my might!

not a budge

whipped again — then she got moving...

and I walked her for about 30 minutes until hubby got home and then he took over...

quite a scare ladies and gentlemen... quite a scare!

What's the lesson you say?

The grass MIGHT look greener on the other side of the fence, and it most certainly could be, however, don't forget about your responsibilities, because you could get sick! it just might not be what you need.

(that was fun talking in 3rd person)

and an additional note that Jordan is okay
