I spent the whole afternoon yesterday at the barn because my daughter was there too. It was hot! We didn't ride but just fussed over the horses a little. I got all of Preacher's burrs out of his forelock, mane and tail! Of course he was back out today. Then I was about to leave, in fact drove to the end of the drive and felt really guilty that the horses would have to lay down in a dirty stall so went back and cleaned Echo and Preacher's stall. I went into Preacher's stall with the last bucket to fill and flung the door shut. Well, it slid too far and I could not get it open. I was trapped in his stall!!! (Well, I could've crawled out the headstall) but I knew Pam was on her way. I was sweating like anything by the time I was rescued!!!
Today was babysitting. Little Jack got my salt and pepper shakers when I wasn't looking and salted my whole family room!!!!!!!! Well, I suppose it could've been worse . . . it could've been sugar!
I'm a retired RN, living in a century home on 1 sq. acre. My wish was to someday have a horse property so I wouldn't have to board my horses. However, I've found the most wonderful full care boarding barn at Winfield Farm and Forge in Grafton. Hoping never to move! I have 2 grown children and 2 grandchildren. I have 1 rescued English Pointer and 2 rescued cats. And chickens!! (Just 2 of them at the moment.)
At 75 I started a part time eBay business that helps fund the care of my horses.
My daughter says I live in my own little bubble. Maybe that's true but I like it in here. I have a few good friends, my family, my animals and all you nice people in the blogosphere!
