Yesterday was a day for getting back into the swing of things. We were a little short of hay in one of the barns so I had to move little hay, a ton, from my barn to Ted's barn. It's not very far, only about seven miles or so, but when your moving it with the tractor it seems like it takes forever to get there. But got that done and a few business related thing done on the computer. I did a private lesson with a lady in Deming NM and we video taped it so that she could have it to look at later, and so she could send a copy to her mother. I had to order a special cable to get that done, but it came out pretty good, so need to get that in the mail to her today.
Then last night around eight or nine pm. I got a call from one of my neighbors out here on the ranch, that their horse was acting like he wanted to colic. So, in my pj's I hooked up the trailer and when over. Sure enough he was just laying there and did not want to get up, but after a little conversation with him he got up and I loaded him in the trailer and took him for a ride. You may remember me talking about what I do when I think a horse is trying to colic or is, that I will load them in a trailer and take them for a ride. That way they are up on their feet and having to keep their balance as we are moving. Is easier then saddling a horse at nine pm and ponying them up and down the road. Well we road around for about an hour or so, then brought him home to our place and put him in a pen. Went out just before I went to bed and he was up eating and had done some business, if you know what I mean, in the pen. This morning he is up and was ready for breakfast.
I need to get the tires off my flatbed trailer and take them in to town to have new ones put on. This tire deal is killing me. Need to up pack too. I have not wanted to even think about that but needs to get done, so that's on the list.
Is great to be back with the boys. They all look great. When we are gone it is a bit of a deal for Ted. He feeds our horses, he and Heidi take care of the dogs and Ted waters Kathy's plants for her while we are away. Can't thank them enough for all they do. We would not be able to go anywhere if we did not have good neighbors like Ted and Heidi, and Charles and Nancy. They will tell you, that's what neighbors do for neighbors, but you don't see that much when you go to the big city.
Better get the coffee down and get to it.
