Sheesh...I swear the past week-since we got home from the ocean-has gone by really fast. In a way, the end of summer is kind of sad, but in another way, it is wonderful. The kidlets will start school on the first, and I will start classes on the eighth. Then we will all be really busy again; though in a different way.
I think I may have been subconsciously avoiding my blog, in preparation for school and my internship. This last year of school will prove to be difficult-I watched last years poor seniors barely make it through-but I am ready to move on, and so, I am ready for it to begin.....
We spent some time up at Amber's house, getting the farm ready for the impending winter. You know...filling in low spots in the horses sheds, fixing leaks in the hay shed roof, and Amber is adding a covered area for us to groom the horses under this winter.
Our weather has been weird lately too, from 100+ temperatures to rain and 50-60 degree temperatures, then back to the 90's. The horses are definitely putting on their winter coats, and I am sure their bodies are just as confused by the weather as we are.
(Below you can see the start of Sienna's winter coat coming in. It is all patchy....)
It has been cold enough that Bo has to wear his blankie at night, and we started him back on his senior feed; although that is now scrapped due to the heat being back....
Have you ever heard the old saying that ponies can get fat on dirt???? Well here is your proof...lol!!!!And of course old Bo Bo took advantage of having all of us in his paddock at once....He snuck kisses.....And scratches....and apples...and lots of attention! Then he and Sienna had to take the kidlets for a ride in return for all of that attention. Nothing is for free, is it???? LOL!!!!And guess what??? Amber and I have gone on a few more rides, and Waska appears to be fine. We are planning on heading up to Buck Creek tomorrow, but will have to take it easy on the horses, as they are both a tad bit out of shape.
Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!!!!
