Alright, so I got a little side-tracked with projects around the house tonight, so I promise I will get back to my learning process of Natural Horsemanship tomorrow. Some days I am a thinker, other days I avoid it with mindless projects-LOL.
I got Big Momma's foaling stall finished. There will be no geldings sticking their heads over this wall!!
The old girl is moving closer to foaling now. Her bag is really filling up and her girlie parts are "relaxing".
We are supposed to be getting a shot of rain tonight or tomorrow and I figured this is the perfect time to get to that little yard project. This triangle of dirt has been just that, DIRT, every since I can remember. I am going to put stepping stones in here, because EVERYONE cuts the corner to the back door. After much deliberation and indecision, I decided to go with the round ones-but wouldn't you know it-I couldn't find any round stepping stones when I went to Pierre the other day. Ugh-I hate it when I finally decide what I want to do and then can't find the right stuff.
So the stepping stones are going to have to wait until I can get to Rapid City. But I did add several loads of good dirt and planted the grass seed. Walking on it until I get the stones in comes with a penalty of DEATH!!
The next two pictures are of the rock and weeds I need to remove from around the house. I did get the pea gravel that I decided to put here instead...so I just need to get to digging.
I gotta find a paint color I like for the house. It severely needs to be painted, but I am not fond of White. So far nothing I have shown Mom has met with her approval...
Megan and I went a little crazy in the flower department at Wal-Mart, but they had a really good selection and at that wonderful Wal-Mart price, who am I to say stop?
Originally, I had found this beautiful golden tan bark to put around the house, but it isn't gonna work-the wind just blows it everywhere. So I had to go to the pea gravel idea.
I ran out of planters before I ran out of flowers to plant...
One thing about it, I won't run out of good dirt. See...horses are good for something. Under that top layer of fresh manure is the most gorgeous composted dirt.
See my supervisor? He makes sure that I don't slack on the job...
Next is getting busy on my "garden". I am going to pot everything because I cannot figure out where I want to put the garden yet. With the price of produce, if you can find any good stuff up in this damn country, it looks like I will be trying my hand at canning and freezing this year.
