The old girl is making progress...
Frustratingly SLOW progress. Oh well such is nature.
I don't know if the big blue horse knew what he was getting into when he so willingly jumped into the trailer to come to town last fall. See, he is a ranch horse-born and bred...I'm kinda guessing if the other horses could see him now they would all have a good horse laugh.
If you are a horse that "belongs" to Megan---you are not safe from the braiding. Manes, tails, forelocks...they are all gonna get the girlie treatment.
Something tells me that the horses don't mind, because they all follow Megan around like she is a pied piper.
Last Tuesday was the last nice day we had. From then on the wind blew, it rained, it stormed, it was miserable. They predicted tornadoes and large hail on Saturday. Thankfully, that never happened. But the weather we did get put the kybosh on a lot of our plans. Chris brought the mule and his arsenal of weaponry. We had planned on sighting in a lot of his rifles. That didn't happen. Instead there was a lot of laying around...looking out the window to see if it was going to clear off.
Finally it did on Sunday. Not everything was opposed to the moisture though. My irises are blooming like crazy...
The grass that I planted is coming up. Yay me!! Usually I do not have much luck with planting grass, but Chris lent me his expertise and low and behold, new little grass shoots.
The rain also "prettied" up the countryside considerably. This is the entrance to my ranch. Our summer cows showed up a couple of days ago. I like seeing cows on the place. Makes it feel like when we were kids and grandpa's cows were there.
This is my step-dad's place. He has a beautiful ranch.
Yea Megan, I know you need supervision...
That is why her job this summer is riding horses and mowing lawns-right next to me-LOL....
Chris headed back to Colorado today. Earlier than expected. Their new snubbing unit is in from Canada and he wants to get it put to work. Considering the weather is back to being nasty, I can't say that I blame him. I know we need the moisture, but I sure wished it would warm up. I caught a nasty chest cold yesterday and I think I will be spending the day wrapped in blankets on the couch watching Law and Order reruns.
