It's MAY!

Hooray for MAY!! It means so many things!! It means its almost summer. It means dragging my grouchy dragons out of bed and getting up at the butt crack of dawn is just ALMOST over!! It means flowers and gardens and ...well, I just love this time of year!!

 Jacob's track season will finish up this week. He has really enjoyed it, and I KNOW a lot of it has to do with the great coaches the team had this year!!

He's ready for summertime! He's trying to find another mowing job or two to add to the one regular one he has and already has several camps he's wanting to attend, so I think his summer will be pretty busy.
Jacob's got some really nice Havanas and  has a waiting list right now of people waiting to buy some.   He wants to show each litter a few times before he decides on what to keep/sale.  He did have something really strange pop up in a recent litter. Black and Chocolate Havanas have to have brown eyes to be shown, and Blues have to have blue/gray eyes. He's got a sweet little BLACK buck who has the most beautiful BLUE eyes!  So, he can't ever be shown, but already has a good pet home to go to when he's weaned. Genetics can be a strange at times!

Tristen has been staying busy with Black Out. They are two peas in a pod.  That calf just loves that boy and seriously just tolerates everyone else. She has a strong dislike for Danny--even kicked at him a couple of days ago. Danny had to give her a shot recently, and I think she's holding a serious grudge against him.  She likes me. But I think it's only because I usually walk along with her and Tristen in the evenings, and she associates me with him. And she doesn't really care for Jacob either, though she tolerates him better than Danny. =P

Anyway, Tristen walks her every night for about half an hour and she's finally walking pretty well for him. We keep telling him all of it will pay off come spring show/fair time.  It's been a great lesson for him. The worlds most stubborn boy has now met worlds most stubborn heifer.  I'm not sure who I feel more sorry for, but it's been a hoot to watch at times. Neither one of them is good at giving in, so quite a few battles have occurred.
The boy FINALLY got his cowboy boots.

2 weeks worth of drama those boots were!!  Long story short--after scouring Dodge and ordering off the internet, only to have the boots discontinued and our order canceled, they had to be special ordered. They HAD to be BLUE topped brown boots with A SQUARE TOE.  Who says it's girls who are picky??  Anyway, they already have scratched and scuffs, and Tristen couldn't be happier!!

Pray for rain and have a great MONDAY!!

Sounds like your boys will have a fun, busy summer ahead. :) That was interesting about Jacob's blue-eyed black buck. Very interesting, too, about Tristen and the calf! LOVE the boots. :)
