After 18 years of being missing, Captain Speichers body was found.
Captain Speicher was the first casualty of the Gulf War.
I chose this song for Music Monday to honor him and his family.
18 years is a long time to not know what happened to your husband or your father you barely knew.

I'm going to say that first line all the time,
And I definitely have to get me some of those shoes.
I really hope you enjoy that song, I know I do.

But that's only half of it, he also has problems with his hooves. As you can see in the pic above, he has cracks in his hoof wall. And that can become a serious problem, so I have been putting some stuff, HoofFlex, on them and I have to wait and see if it works.
And every once in awhile he limps, I'm not sure why. We have treated him for thrush although I don't think that's what it is, there is no distinct thrushy odor and there is no black and slimy tissue. But it doesn't hurt to treat for it, he could have super early stages of it. He does seem to be super sensitive in his feet. Which is a real switch around here as my folks' horses could be missing their feet and not limp. I think Ivan is just a big weeny, a crabby naughty weeny. More stubborn than a mule. At this point I'd rather ride a mule.
Well my brain is hurting from thinking about naughty Ivan, maybe he thinks life is like basketball and a ref will call foul on someone if he just acts hurt. See these are the things he makes me think of, no wonder my brain hurts.
So I will inform you on how it goes, wish me luck.
Now that I look at this picture of his hindend, I see that his tail is still very short, the former owners dogs used to hang from it and tear it. Maybe he is like Samson, and when his dorky tail finally grows out he will be a good horse and not a weeny, a rebellious cantankerous weeny. Here's hoping.

I love this movie, and I always sing both these songs.
We are haying the fields tomorrow, so I hope this doesn't give us bad luck.
Oh well some times I just can't help myself.
Don't forget to visit Music Monday for some more music.

Are you blinded yet?
If you noticed, the cloud in this pic and the one above are the same cloud
just taken from two very different places
Flowing water is so soothing and refreshing.
I hope you have enjoyed my pictures.

My weekend was very eventful, we had some friends from England and here in Washington come to visit. It's some what of a holiday, you can see pics at Kathy's blog as all of us here at the Vick household forgot to get out the camera until the last minute. But Anna may have some pictures up tomorrow as she did manage to get a few in the last hour, and Mom will of course brag about her new found tea cakes.

Today's selection was captured early last week before we got our wild Easter weather.
These clouds are cirrus uncinus or mares' tails. They occur often, though we get so much lower cloud cover that we rarely see them. They are of very little significance, they are formed when there is moisture at higher levels that is colder than freezing.
