20 July 2007

We started off today really cool, 55F and warmed up to the upper 70s which made for a beautiful comfortable day. The rain is gone for now. I didnt do a whole lot outside in the barn today, just enjoyed the weather and hunted for stuff to shoot. I put the three stud colts out this afternoon again and they loved their romp. I can't wait until I can put the three fillies out too (not with the colts though), they are really needing to get some exercise.

Catblogging day today so here is Sylvester again in his favorite place on the roof of my pickup preening himself.

Larry bought a tractor with a bush hog (mower, heavy duty one for the pastures) which we got yesterday. It is pretty old but these things run forever so I tried my hand at driving it and mowing all the weeds in the one pasture, lots of levers to use LOL. I will post a pic of it tomorrow. I must say it was fun!!! I am so glad to be able to flatten all the weeds and burrs that get into the horses' manes and tails. We are hoping to get a scoop for it too which will allow me to move the manure pile, and also a manure spreader so that I can spread the manure in the field which helps the grass. We want to reseed the pasture and try to manage it in such a way that we will have some quality grazing in it if we rotate the horses and keep them out of it when it is muddy.

Well it is late yet again, I want to catch up on a few more blogging friends so I am signing off for the night. ((((HUGS))))) and take care.

Sounds like you are getting some mechanical help! Terrific!

Also some welcome relief to the heat. Hope you got some rain!

Sylvester looks quite comfy on your truck. And the color red suits him. lol

Glad you're having so much fun with the tractor. You're braver than I. We had one for a while and I never did do a thing with it. Couldn't figure out how to even start the darn thing. lol
