I decided to do a quick post today; it's storming, and a good day for posting! :D At the Home School Conference, I bought some modeling clay. I LOVE modeling clay, and try to buy some every year. Anyway, I got a big chunk of it, and as soon as I got home, the next day, I made a "bust" of a horse-head. Here is the process of doing it:
It took a bit of work, but the end result was wonderful! I have officially named the model "Samurai": a horse of my imagination that is completely black...as you can tell. :)
Also, I have some VERY exciting news......
Are you ready for this?
Are you sure?
Are you sitting down? (Well, of COURSE you are....you're at the computer....)
If you are not sitting down, (which would be absolutely ridiculous, by the way,) is there a chair close by?
Are you absolutely....
SURE that you're ready for this?
Alright, I'll stop annoying you now. :D
....WE'RE BREEDING BELLE NEXT WEEK!!!! YAAAAAYYYY!!!! *does a dance of joy*
I'm so happy I can't believe myself! It all happened rather...suddenly....last night at Bible Study. The man we bought Belle from came over with a young man that works at his stables, and while we were finishing up supper, he said out of the blue, "Oh, and if all goes well, I was planning on picking Belle up next week." I almost dropped my fork, staring across the table at him.
"You--you mean to breed her?" He smiled at the look on my face. "Yes. I was going to try and pick her up sometime around June the first, so that if all goes well, she'll have the foal next May."
....YES YES YES YES YES!!!! I AM SOOOO HAPPY!!!!! My beautiful Liberty Belle is going to have a baby next May!!!! ....If all goes well....*gulp*....
If I can, I'm going to try and get a picture of the daddy, so you all can see him. I myself haven't seen him yet, but Stacey (the man we bought Belle from,) said that he is really "handsome". :D
Anyway, I do need to close here. Oh, if you all will...pray for me. My cat Smokey bit me about thirty minutes ago. Not on purpose, I'm sure, but she did. It started raining really hard, and I went outside to get her. Well, she really doesn't like being picked up, but I had to to get her inside. She turned around and bit my hand right under the thumb. It's not too bad, I don't think, but it's kinda sore. Mom read that 80% of cat bites get infected.....joy.....it's not too deep, but, like I said, it's stinging and sore.
Oh well....life must go on. :D
