So, since I had two toasty kids who thought the lake would be just right to cool them down........
Off we went to see.
In Other News....
Well, there isn't much other news. Phat Boy and I have been plodding around a bit trying to get legged up some. During this evening's ride, I used my left leg to cue for some lateral work and wound up with a charlie horse in the back of my left thigh. I seriously think my mobile couch was laughing at me, but he half- heartedly did move off of my leg. It was worth it-- any ride is better than no ride!
Both the horses need trimming, and I just need to dust off the tools and get at it. One good thing about the warmer weather-- Tater is lazy and should be easier to trim. (He needs a lot of reminders about proper manners for trimming. Warm weather ought to make him sleepy, making him less likely to tap dance on my head I hope.)
We got about 10 minutes of extra daylight, and Phat Boy is shedding. So is Jo the Wonder Nanny Dog. I'm ankle deep in dog hair if we don't vacuum frequently. Course, if she keeps going back to the lake, Jo is liable to get a summer haircut and have to wear the shirt of shame again.
That's about all for now. Not much exciting going on. Biggest highlight, aside from riding, is getting ready to plant peas and radishes. According to the Farmers Almanac, we'll be able to plant those very soon. YAY! I can't wait-- fresh veggies are going to be wonderful. Can't WAIT for mater season!!!
Meantime, y'all keep your ponies in the middle!!
