Does This Horse Make My Butt Look Fat??

A while back, I posted a story about "Making Friends at the Dunes." The woman we met that day (Gigi) was the Dunes riding a couple of weeks ago on the same day as another friend of ours (Dee). The two of them met and talked for a while. Dee told us Gigi had on a t-shirt that said "Does This Horse Make My Butt Look Fat?" I must have one of those shirts!! I am going to search online and see if I can find one.

So we went riding on Sunday at the Indiana Dunes State Park. It was a great day -- not too hot, not too cold. We had a really nice ride. The neat thing about the trails at the Dunes is that they change all the time. The Dunes are a unique eco-system, and the plant life there is varied and beautiful. Sometimes the trails are underwater, sometimes they are not. But it is always interesting and scenic. The deer flies were sort of bad (only 3 more months till October!!!), but we had put plenty of bug repellant on the girls, so they were not bothered too much. John had the camera for part of the ride, so with these photos he took I guess I have to ask the question posed in the title of this post!!

Chicken Update -- Our poor little Prolapse Chicken has been in the barn in the dark since Friday. She needs to stop laying eggs so her condition can heal. She laid an egg on Saturday, which did not surprise me. But then she laid another on Sunday! I was bummed!! I have had that chicken in the dark, have been out there twice a day since Saturday giving her a sitz bath and putting Preparation H on her. She starts to look better, then she lays an egg and everything flares up again! But I am happy to report that this morning I went out to the barn to check on her and take care of her before going to work, and there was not an egg!! Also, her little rear end looked much better -- so I think we are on the right path. I think I will give her another day or two in the dark and with the treatment just to be sure.

I have such a glamorous life!!
