Sunday Stills " Sunrises/Sunsets...With A Building"

Well now this was a whole lot tougher than I thought it was going to be ....way to go Ed.
It has been some time since we've had any color in the sky at Sunrise but there was a bit this morning, sadly it is so dark where the buildings are that you can hardly see them. I couldn't figure out how to  fix that .....soooo this is it. Anyhow East - Sunrise'll see where I'm going with this.If you highlight the pic you can actually see the buildings... (they say there's more than one way to skin a cat)....who came up with that expression???



So east again.... Sunset. I know how stupid that sounds but in this particular spot that is exactly what I get. These two pics were taken at about 6:00 pm Sat. the sun just about gone. The sun had been gone in the West for about an hour already....go figure.....hey confused yet!!!! You should try living here.
Again..if you highlight the pic you will see a building or two.



Well Ed I tried...very hard to get this one...I'm not feeling overly triumphant....but I'll bet there's some excellent ones out there . I'm off to check you all out.

Cody!! Cody!! What to do with Cody???

Well I am posting this today because my arsenal is empty. As some of you know I brought home a Morgan colt at the end of Dec.
( still waiting for parts-  to geld)

He is mostly a nice fellow however now that he has been here for awhile I am finding things I really don't like about him. Cody is a chewer he is like the kid that puts everything up his nose...only in this case he puts everything in his mouth ...including me, he is chewing the crap out of the fences.  Cody treats me like I'm another horse he continually tries to bite and shove into me ....just how he is with Jazz...he totally does not get the human... I'm the boss this point he is not biting to be mean and he has not actually got a hold of any skin...yet.....but you can't turn your back on him, he has managed to grasp my coat sleeve a few times but I'm usually prepared for him.  Cody has the attention span of a gnat ....or who knows maybe a gnat has more than him....whatever he is becoming a pain in my ass. I don't have the time or patience to play along with him.... I need him to get with the program.Cody is good for haltering and leading......well mostly, he no longer tries to eat the halter when it goes on...he has no problem accepting it. When leading he spends all his time trying to get the lead rope in his mouth so there is a lot of head tossing and other strange things an attempt to get it into his mouth.... also trying to bite the other horse thus making it a pain to get from point A to B. I have tried everything I know to change his behavior no avail. In an attempt to stay off his head I have resorted to this.


Cody accepts the muzzle just as readily as he does the halter...after a few lessons.... he has quit trying to eat it when it goes over his mouth. he stands well for removal...also took a few lessons... but he is good now.  He can no longer bite other horses being led beside him...which makes for a much easier time of getting where I need to go.
Cody still spends a lot of time trying to chew the muzzle so there is still a lot of head tossing and trying to get his mouth on the ground and he is still trying to get a  hold on the lead rope....the good thing though is he can't get a hold of me....doesn't stop him from trying . After he gets in trouble a few times he will pay attention and then he settles in and is easy to deal with. If any of you have suggestions on a different way to deal with this colt please share them.
