Could've Worked Today
The Principal of the school where I subbed called this morning asking if I could come in. I had to turn him down because of this darn cold. I am at the coughing stage and just feel crummy and tired.
Ah, well. It would have been nice.
I mostly sat and lay around all day after I took care of the Boys in the morning.
But then, I had $50 worth of coupons to spend at the feed store before they expired on the 19th. Since Dawn's memorial service is tomorrow and I have church and a luncheon on Sunday, that pretty much left today as the only sure time to spend them.
I got some feed, alfalfa cubes, and shavings--still spending a good bit of real cash, but I'm set for a while again. I usually have to stock up on the alfalfa cubes before the feed runs out, but that's no big deal.
In other news, the girl who bred Chance posted a picture of both Chance and his mother on her Facebook page. I have to share his mom's portrait. It's a little fuzzy, but you can see her coloration and general body build. Her name is Sundance.
While a good stallion is important, I've read that the mare is usually more dominant in passing characteristics on to the foal. But there are some stallions that really to "stamp" their get, and I have to suspect those are the ones with higher breeding fees.
I wonder whether Totilas is going to be a dominant sire like that?
