All right, so I missed last week.
It’s been gray and gloomy and rainy here.
Not much for pictures, and even less energy…but this week, I’m catching up with prompts from last week as well.
First set of images are for the prompts Starts with X, Week’s Favorite and Insect.
Starts with X
When you have no idea how to approach a prompt, you hit the google and type in “words that start with x” and read the Scrabble websites for ideas.
That’s how I hit upon “xenobiotics”…though, now that I think of it, I coulda just used Xena, my warrior princess barn cat. LOL! Mighta been too easy…
Anyways…xenobiotics are something we use on the Girls. In fact, we spend quite a bit of money on them and a ton of time trying to apply them…a xenobiotic is a “chemical foreign to or not produced by an organism” such as a pesticide…’round here we call it “bug juice” and we slather it on the horses as much as possible.
After a healthy (or maybe not so healthy) application bug juice, we see this sight a lot!
Bug juice makes for happy horses, because sleeping is so much easier. ❤
Do I really need to explain why this is a favorite? I’m sure I don’t. 🙂
With the rains, come the mosquitoes…and that’s our insects. Many, many, many insects.
Which is why we spend so much money on xenobiotics (I’m loving using that! lol!) so that instead of running and stomping, we see this:
Nice face, Roo 😉
Much better than dropping weight running from bugs, or messing up hooves and legs from stomping. I’ll give ’em toxic skin coatings to save the other parts of them. 😉
Now, for this week’s prompts. They are Starts with Y, Week’s Favorite and Splash.
Starts with Y
Ruby does some morning yoga stretches, while eyeing me. Just in case there’s some sort of horse treat coming to the fence…
(there were no treats to be had this day…because Round Ruby does not need treats. 😉 )
The Cookie having fun.
After her bout of achy, painful joints keeping her down, this was wonderful to see. Her playing, leaping, bucking, kicking and cantering.
Does this woman’s ❤ good to see.
The near daily application of the ointment is helping her.
I’m loving that.
Splashing and playing in the rains…
Oy! Dirty girl!
Taken out the livingroom window while the rains were coming down…they were just having a grand time running and playing.
