This morning, however, Hubby took the Kelpie out trapping with him and Pig got to go to the barn for her own special Pig adventure. She was back to bouncing around like a lunatic Friday morning, but we're trying not to encourage crazies for another day or two. You would never be able to tell she got her face bashed by a truck two days ago. Cattle Dogs are the most indestructible animals on the planet.
|no worse for wear.|
I took Memphis and Bobby up to the outdoor for some snowy romping pictures, but they declined to participate. They thought it was too cold, too. But I did get some cute pictures of a bunch of the horses that were out, so to tide you over for a real riding post (don't hold your breath for one in the immediate future), here are more Saturday Stills:

And, for the finale, I called both boys over to the gate to come in but only Memphis deigned to walk over. I put his halter on, swung the lead rope over his neck, and called Pig over. She's not at all a fan of horses--having been kicked by them enough to know they're not that fun to play with--but she obediently listened to my "Hold him" command and kept Memphis from walking after me. Working dogs are the shit.

note memphis's "wtf was that?!" expression.
