Savannah was good for another few laughs yesterday while I was FREEZING cleaning stalls. Actually, between the horse rescue and my own horses, I was outside yesterday from 8am-4:30pm.....and I had to wear Allen's Carhartt's because mine were frozen (don't ask!). Clearly Allen and I do not wear the same size so you can just imagine how that worked! By the time I got into the house, I felt like my face was on fire. Anyways, back to the topic at hand.....Savannah. I guess shavings are more appealing to her than kitty litter because her new routine seems to be to use the horses clean shavings as her potty - ewwwww - thankfully I am cleaning stalls while she does this so I can clean up after her too. *sigh* And as I have mentioned, clearly I give the horses special water, while hers is obviously just mediocre, so she insists on drinking out of their buckets.
Here is a pic I snapped of her yesterday on my cell. She decided to stand on the frozen water of one bucket to sip water out of the unfrozen bucket next to it! This morning, after Allen watered, she got her front paws on that black bucket and while drinking, she was also tipping it forward. I am sure Gypsy appreciated the river running through her stall on a 10* morning!
In other news, my most favorite Dutch Oven pot was ruined, or so I thought! Without many details, my husband was cooking venison for chili in it and the after product was a charred pot! I was devastated! I tried to cook it off with water and vinegar but it didn't work this time. Then, as if it was meant to be, I stumbled upon a post by Shirley, of the blog Shirley's World, Miracle of the Burned Pot. I had nothing to loose, so I tried it, and it was a MIRACLE! My pot is usable again! And to celebrate, I think tonight I will make a fryer chicken in it :)
