Not quite Bambi but close!
Bubba shot his buck opening day. A small buck that field dressed at around #100.
Not quite like the huge buck he took last year.
Last year was the first year Bubba ever shot a buck, it was a nice one indeed for a first.
This small buck’s meat was nearly like slicing butter when butchering and nice-n-tender while eating. Suprisingly we, we did harvest quite a bit of meat off this little guy.
I went back out to my deer blind Sunday. Mr and Mrs. Annoying Squirrels were there, chittering up a storm once again.
Monday morning I was sorely tempted to slip the .22 revolver into my pocket and shut them up for good. I did not though.
So far I have seen 1 large doe and 1 good sized buck. I guess the buck at around a 6 point, he was moving fast and about 200 yards away. No way could I get a decent shot. I’m not one for wilding firing at something and ‘hoping‘ I hit my target.
Wee One made a bird seed feeder at school. It consists of a huge pinecone lathered in peanut butter with bird seed stuck onto it.
Wee is very proud of it. We hung it up and waited for the birds to flock to it……except,
Scooter was the only one who flocked to it. He took a big bite out of it, shame on him!
Scooter needs some Head And Shoulders. His dandruff is out of control!
I sprayed him with some horse coat conditioner Saturday afternoon.
The weather in Oklahoma has been on the warm side, 80 degree days. It’s not going to last, the weatherman promises cold and rain by Wednesday.
Freddie does not like water, he is true to his Donkey traits in that area!
But, Freddie loves to be fussed over just as much as Scooter does.
I threw an old blanket on Freddie and mounted up. He does not know how to step off on his own. I had hubs lead him around with me riding. After I was done, I offered to lead Wee One around but he said, “No thank you. I only ride Scooter. He’s a horse and not a donkey.”
The hubs likes Freddie much more than I had thought. He even mentioned building a round pen when he takes 2 days off work at Christmas. Maybe he wants me to train Freddie. I hope hubs wants to ride him eventually.
I noticed Freddie is putting on some weight. He needs a few pounds but not many more.
Over the weekend, I wormed him again and gave him the rest of his vaccines, except for one last booster he gets Sunday.
Freddie does not like shots. He was none too impressed with me over the weekend.
Have I ever mentioned I love Jeffers ?
They ship UPS (and COD if needed). Since I am in the process of paying off my MasterCard (once again but making huge headway) I like to pay with a check or cash.
I give all my own vaccinations and do all of my own wormings, on all of my animals. I have done this since I was a teenager. The only vaccine I get from my horse vet is the West Nile Virus booster.
I showed Wee One this photo of Freddies behind. He said,” ewww. Freddies butt is gross. He needs to cover it up.”
Why doesnt Wee One like Freddie???????
I hope everyone has a great Turkey Day!
