This is Gizmo. He is a new baby alligator that just came to the park. Little Cowpoke loves to hold him and squeeze him and call him his own.
Even Cowpokette got to touch the baby alligator. She was not too sure about it. I have never touched it. I think it would feel like a frog, so I am too scared to touch it.
She kinda smiled after the baby alligator left her stroller. I am like her, the farther away the better. The alligator park also has three big alligators and one really old turtle named Rambeaux. That would be the southern way of spelling Rambo.
If he could jump through the glass he would have. His face was smashed up against it. He was all excited about the female alligator swimming.
She is the smallest alligator in the pool. The two males are about twice her size. Cowpokette was not too sure what Little Cowpoke was getting all excited about. She looked and looked. Little Cowpoke was talking about their teeth and how sharp they are.
"Ehh? What was that you said, sharp what?" She was a bit concerned. Little Cowpoke was laughing.
"Teeth you say? That is some serious stuff! I don't want to see any alligator teeth." The nice lady working in the alligator house was telling Little Cowpoke what to do in case an alligator was chasing you. She told him, "When you have an alligator chasing you just make sure your friend is behind you." Sure so the alligator can eat your friend! Nice.
I think Cowpokette was excited about being able to copy her big brother. She is such a funny kid. She is 10 months old going on 2 years old. She bosses those boys around and tries to take their toys. She will be one tuff cookie. We left the alligator house and we played at the park in the 92 degree heat.
We swung for about five minutes then Little Cowpoke declared that he was very hot and wanted to go home. I have never had a child ask to go home from the park. I didn't argue with him. I gathered up our stuff and we left the park. I didn't give Little Cowpoke the time to change his mind.
Today we are riding and washing horses. We have a rodeo on Saturday and Sunday we are delivering three horses to a man and his family. He bought Lucy, the Appy mare, Pretty Girl, and Buttercup. I am excited they have a new home. Selling horses always makes me a bit nervous. I worry that they will get fed properly and they will have the proper tack. My husband says I worry too much. The man who bought them knows nothing. So, I am going to take some post it notes and mark pages in a Valley Vet catalog for things he should get for the horses. I guess we all have to start somewhere. And two of the three horses are really easy keepers, so I think he will be alright. I will post again tonight about my ride and horse wash, then tomorrow, off to the rodeo.
***I found a Western Pleasure Trainer near my house. I met him last night and I so hope he will take Ozzie for a couple of months!! I am going to call him this after noon!! I am so nervous! I have every finger and toe crossed.*****
