Yesterday got me started back in my routine. Stan had his riding lesson, he usually does on Mondays, and he did pretty good, considering he has not ridden in over a month. It was good to see him back in the saddle and was good for me to get back in it myself.
After that I unloaded close to ten ton of hay, getting ready for the winter. We got a little rain the night before, and last night for that matter, and I had the trailer loaded with hay. I was worried about it getting rained on so I drove over to Ted's to put the hay trailer, with the hay, in the barn but it would not fit. So I drove like a bat out of you know where back here to the house and put it in out barn. Just in time. So have that little project out of the way for now. Will go to Deming this week, sometime, and get another ten ton to put up in our barn for the winter. Hay prices have gone out of site this year. Not sure why but I sure hope it comes down or I'm afraid there will be a lot more horses left out on the desert, to fend for themselves.
Kathy's mother continues to improve, and her father is holding his own. Kathy will head back to Kansas tomorrow to continue to help them sort out some things with their meds. and in home help.
Some of you will remember Sue. She put on the clinic for me in the valley this past Aug. Well she just got back from Portugal where she rode with a master in dressage. She sent me a few pictures that I thought I would share with you. She has lots of stories to tell when she gets back home, she is on another horse related trip, and I will share them with you. What an exciting time it must have been. Sue and I continue to work together with her horses and I can't wait to visit with her about her experience there.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
