The Dreaded September Heat Cycle!


Oh Yes and these girls have got it in full swing! It's always worse in September and April of the year. I think in combination with the weather changes, their spring and autumn heat cycles really become noticeable! Kola was a jackass yesterday at breakfast and managed to slip in the mud on her hinds! I watched her throughout the day and afternoon she looked a bit stiff, so I decided to go ahead and give her some "bute". Well that encompassed a 20 minute halter tag game with ears pinned and shitty attitude until I said I win and went and got a rope. She did get haltered. She did get her "bute" and she did have to wait a bit for dinner. I won. This will rage on for weeks, I'm sure. Misty, funny enough is not as bad yet. Give her time, she'll catch up! Oh the attitudes!
