I'm not sure if you remember last year's Halloween post, but it wasn't the best Halloween ever, because just a few hours before we got ready to leave, Britt came down with a fever and was sick with body aches and chills. This year, however, despite the school putting a real damper on all the celebrations (I have no idea why it is such a big deal to NOT CELEBRATE Halloween when it is such a fun holiday!), we made the day ours, from start to finish!
We're back to cleaning stalls, and this year I've been making the little B's hang out with me and help a bit. So of course the three kittens have been coming out, too, because wherever the kiddos go, the kitties go. So last week, we got a kick out of Little Gaga when she jumped on Boomer's back - he didn't even notice! He just wanted us to keep petting him. This week, Brailey jumped on Tex bareback, and her cat Jack jumped off the fence right onto her lap. Then Britt had to have a turn, and of course Rose had to get a ride on Tex, too. We have the silliest kittens in the world, but the gentlest horses. In the spirit of Halloween, we took a picture of them with their Halloween shirts on Texi-Man - he looks thrilled, doesn't he?
When Brady was back in Nebraska for training a few weeks ago, he met a store owner in Valentine, and wouldn't you know they talked a little football. So Brady sent him an Oregon Ducks cap, and yesterday, he got a package from the store owner - these two adorable orange store hats! Perfect for hunting and Halloween and any occasion. Brady was thrilled, and so was Britt. Lucky ducks, indeed!
Get your paws up! And your game on!
Día de los Muertos.
