Thursday 24 July 2008

I know I have been remiss for five days and not posted, lots happening here and I have been up and down like a yoyo. The pictures today are from a few evenings ago, I wa trying to use the soft evening light for a project so these were some of the results, Lori my filly and a picture of Lori and Dee and a whole bunch of legs.

The day before yesterday I rode Cayenne out in the pasture down the road again and I had her cantering and trotting which was exhilerating, she was such a good girl. Richard lives just down the road and he saw us so he came over and then he also had a ride on her, this is a man who has only been on a horse twice ever, and this little filly was as good as gold for him. I hope I find the right home for her she is a star.

Yesterday we had a beautiful day, it stayed in the 70s low 80s but it made it ploeasant outside, so I took advantage and got a few things done that needed doing (still have a list a mile long). I moved the gate from the field that we have replanted and aren't using, to put on the doorway at the bottom of the barn because I was tired of hauling a panel to cover the doorway every time I wanted to keep the horses out of the barn. Of course I am all thumbs and tools are not my best friend so it took three times as long as it should have for someone who knows what they are doing!!

Then I had to move some more panels inside to make the area for the storage of sawdust secure as I am stockpiling it for winter. If the horses can get access to the pile they WILL climb up it and spread it far and wide and roll in it and then it is spread out and I can't use it!! I also had to go down the road to the pasture we are using to fix the gate there as it was falling off its one hinge. This pasture and house is on State Road 3 one of the busier roads in the state so that is my one worry, a horse getting out onto the highway. Heaven forbid.

To cap that exciting day off, I then reversed the trailer into the barn after moving all the barriers out of the way and unloaded a load of sawdust!!!! By that time the shower was more than calling because it was after 9pm! Hey I missed Big Brother!!!!

I have a Welsh Pony and Welsh Cob show this weekend In Rochester which is about 80 - 90 miles north of us. Lisa has agreed to come with me to help me which I am very grateful for as it is a show that I cant shoot and handle the downloading etc. on my own, I need help with the computer side of things. We will be leaving on Friday evening because this show starts at 8am and I dont want to have to drive 2 hours before the start on Saturday LOL.

So if you dont see me again before then, have a wonderful weekend everyone and I am sure we will both have some pics to post on Monday when we have recovered.

Girl, I was sure I checked here this morning when I got up, and I still saw Saturday's post. I'm starting to get nervous about the weekend! I love the shot of Lori.

Wow you have been busy. I'd say you done a wonderful job with using the afternoon light, a really nice atmosphere (if you can get that over the internet lol!)

Lori: You have a wonderful sight and we have a lot of similar photos. I have a horse stable I pass dailey so have many horse photos. It was so unusual to see someone else with access to black squirrels. They are rampent in our area. Your country side looks similar to ours in NE Ohio. Best wishes on your show.
