My barrel racing this weekend was cancelled/postponed.
I was NOT bummed.
My last week went to pot about Wednesday afternoon. The wind came up. Actually it howled.
It managed to take part of the barn roof off...
So guess what is now on my immediate lists of projects? Yep...finishing tearing off that barn roof.
Saturday, we got in a good day. My Honey mowed the lawn at the new place and tilled up the garden. Meg and I did manual labor.
My cleaning spree is pretty much halted until they come dump my dumpster...
I'm tired, achy and cranky. Getting older is not for the faint of heart!
We are supposed to have nicer weather this week. So far, no 'windy' days in the forecast.
I have to get humping on those two I brought out to get started.
I have had the sorrel horse saddled....
He was a piece of cake. A few days of saddling and ponying and I will have to see if that HS kid will come over and put the first few rides on him. There will be no hesitation getting him going this year.
The big bay is coming around. At least I can walk in the pen and pet him, catch him, groom him and pick up his feet. I'm not sure trimming his feet is going to be much fun, but it has to be done before I start working him. He has some long toes.
I don't anticipate he will be much of a problem to start saddling. He's a really kind colt. I like him, but he sure is different than any of our other horses. Not sure what he is going to be good for. My middle brother(who actually owns the horse) sure has a soft spot for him though, so onward, forward ho...
Moon's cough is back. Not that it ever really goes away a 100%, but it's one of those things that bothers me when I hear it. MSM is on the way. Hopefully it works as well as it did last year.
There's more...there's always more. It's impossible to have this many irons in the fire and not have a bajillion things going on at once....Stay tuned.
Sorry no pics...I'm just to darn tired and crabby to bother loading them. I would love to be in bed sleeping right now, but my darn hips just about have me in tears. If only the Tylenol would kick in...
