Chores as usual this morning. My guard dog was on duty.
After I mowed the lane and around the pastures, I had to run some errands and took the dogs with me. First we went to the drive thru at the bank.
The teller gave the dogs each a cookie...
After that we hit Tractor Supply for a bag of lime and a mineral salt block.
Next door is "junk food." I got the dogs a plain dollar burger to split.
Gucci loves to sit on this shelf in the back of my car...which she did on the way home.
This afternoon there were around 35 pigeons on our barn roof. Great! I'll bet they are going to take a powder when they start doing the roof on the indoor. Next week would be nice...
Did evening chores a little early so Winnie would be ready for a lesson tonight.
I moved Gary's farm wagon over to the turn around in the driveway. He scraped it....
cleaned it up....
and after dinner finished priming it. Looks pretty good.
He will dry our onions there.
Not a lot of garlic this year. The seed stock is already spoken for by organic growers and the table stock will go up for sale by the weekend.
I added some elbow macaroni to the leftover sauce from last night...nothing wrong with leftovers at our house! Easy dinner.
At 6:30 I rode out to Glen Darach Farm to watch Darrin's lesson on Winnie.
They both did very well.
Andrea is the perfect teacher for him. When interested adults take any kind of lesson, they usually want it, and absorb information in a way that is very different from what they would have done when they were younger.
Darrin adjusted the hackamore he bought for Winnie...Got the Mattes pad in the mail tonight...the saddle fits the horse right...and the two of them are ready to roll.
This sweet horse loves not having a bit in her mouth. A great lesson.
