Life in Lika

Did you know you could milk a horse?? Well, you can. Apparently it is good for auto immune diseases and has much more vitamins and minerals than other milks. It makes sense seeing how fast and strong these baby colts are growing! But the amazing thing about the milking process is that the mare can choose to withhold the milk. If the colt is not near enough, and she does not feel his skin on hers, then no matter how hard you try, there is no milk to be had. I found this very intelligent, and at the same time frustrating. :)

These are the tipis we painted...think they turned out rather well.

cheese, walnuts, and pivo...yum!

Emily had 11 puppies this week while we were in the mountain. John was able to be here and witness as they multiplied. All are healthy and well, and look like Medo with spots ranging from light tan to black. This is them 4 days old, now we know why Emily got sooo big. Now she trots around light as a feather!
