First, for the Bad News... The other day, the cows came down onto the hill behind our pasture while Mom went out to feed the horses. She came in and got Robert so that he could go out and take pictures, and wouldn’t let us out of the yard so that no one would get a chance to chase those noisy, mooing cows.
While she was feeding, and Robert was trying to get close enough to get some pictures without them running off, someone started a big fight. They didn’t see it, and I’m not telling who, though it COULD have been Sadie. I would never admit it if it was ME.
Since they were so far away, it took several minutes for them to get back and into the yard, and I was screaming and so was one of the pups… probably Mercy, as she went running into the house. (She doesn’t like fights, unless SHE instigates them… as in, STAY AWAY from MY bone, flip, biscuit, food, etc. !)
By the time Robert ran all the way back in from the side pasture, Mom had limped in from the corrals, and Robert got Sadie away from me and into the front yard and the gate shut, I had a VERY bloody ear!
Mom was shaking because she was so scared that I’d been hurt badly, but I was just TICKED and wanted to get my teeth into Sadie! Robert put me up on the table in the back yard, and got the medical stuff out.
Mom cleaned me up, disinfected the tear on the edge of my ear and the gash inside, and then put on some antibiotic ointment. I’ve been even more stiff than usual the past day or so, too.
They had done a quick scan of everyone else and didn’t see any injuries, but after they finished fixing up my ear, they did a more thorough check of everyone else and still didn’t see any injuries on anyone. BG apparently pulled a muscle though, because he’s been limping on his hind leg since then.
Ooops... It's getting late, and Mom wants to go to bed, so I'll have to tell you the good news next time! (Hint: It came in the mail and smelled REALLY GOOD!)
Here are the horses of Corgi Country. We've had Cory since he was a little over 3 years old, and Tuffy is my son's AQHA Palomino gelding. He is trained to do both western and dressage work, though he is no longer shown.
Below them is our Border Collie, Sadie...
Cory, my 26 yr. old Peruvian Gelding
Tuff is an AQHA 26 yr. old Palomino
Auntie Sadie (aka Shady Sadie Lady)
Sadie is our black Border Collie. She is a big help to Grammy around the house and property...

Proverbs – A Bible Study and A Country Grammy’s Walk With God blogs:
Grammy has 6 kids and 16 grandkids. She worked for 18 years with severely handicapped children, but is retired now, and writes a blog to share God’s wisdom as written by the Bible in Proverbs, as well as a blog that shares the things that God is showing her. She draws in pastels and graphite, and has her own a storefront at: http://www.cafepress.com/GrammysCorgiCountry.
She and Papa have 5 acres in a VERY rural setting. The closest town is a couple of miles away and our nearest neighbor is about a quarter of a mile away on one side with no homes on the other three sides for MANY miles. We are surrounded by BLM land which makes it really nice and quiet. We get to listen to, and watch, many kinds of wild critters.
