Heard some weird noises while I was cooking and saw someone at the door through the blinds. Turned off the stove, turned off my music and went to the door. Some dude is bent over. Thought it was a prank. Then I seen tools. Was confused. Opened the door. It was the landlord's father. Apparantly we have a sump pump under the planks by our front door that needed a new light to prevent winter freezing. Wow. I was kind of afraid for a second. Now it feels like I didn't eat at all.
Horses got their blankets? Do they mind blankets? I wonder because 100 years ago, how did horses survive winter?
The older horses may have had a harder time. As animals get older their immune system wans down. The purpose of blankets actually helps the horse keep the blood their heart is pumping warm so that they can work less to keep their vital organs warm and use only minor energy to keep their legs, neck and head warm.
Mine actually love their blankets and attempt to "help" me put them on. Which they in turn accidentally step on their blankets and rip a hole :P
Parents left this morning and Mocha is already restless.. Click click click go her nails on the hardwood floors, it's driving me nuts. She also keeps acting like she wants out but won't actually go outside. grr
I went to the LPS. I did make sure not to bring ANY money whatsoever so that I wouldn't buy anything... The lionhead goldfish and the borneo loach were tempting. Along with every hamster. And every guinea pig. Basically everything in there. XD DAT BORNEO LOACH.
Has anyone seen the movie A Seperation? It's a subtitle movie, in Persian. It looks really good, won the best foreign language film at the Oscars last year. I rented it and plan on watching tonight. :)
Maisy (mah dog) is mad as all heck because I forgot to let her in before I went to the LPS. -________- Two denta sticks and some chicken broth on her dog food made everything better.
I really want more fish but I just don't have the time for it. I am happy with the rasboras, platy, guppy, betta and snails though. My 10 gallon seems so peaceful with only 7 fish. As of boxing day I have been keeping fish for a year... I can't believe it's been a year since I first walked into that store and bought Hermes...

That's good to know. I love horses. All the history I read involves horses so I wondered. How long can you leave a blanket on a horse?
As long as necessary. When I was camping up north, the horses were blanketed all day long. But my horses were born/raised down south. Those horses that are born/raised up north don't need blanketing that much.
