I managed to wake up a little earlier today, and discovered a very mysterious looking sky.
By the time I went out to the barn, it lightened up.....
....wild cloud patterns.
The temperature was not too bad...in the 40s.
Had a grain delivery this morning and Tipper came along for the ride. She now weighs 7 pounds....still a baby.
Phoebe and Gucci were in the yard so they would not get in the way of the delivery van. When it left, they were back in the barn with me while I finished cleaning stalls.
At 11:30 Jenny brought Cooper up to the farm so she could go into Rochester for a hair appointment. He was a perfect gentleman.
By 1:30 my class arrived. As usual, they were all doing their own thing(s).
Sandy is starting on a portrait of Lightning (who is moving out of her barn).
Connie left her watercolors at home, so she started on a pencil drawing.
Tina has started her drawing of the fawn and the cat.
Deb has been working on paintings for her book on family history.
and Dick is working on a watercolor.
Tina framed her drawing of Buster...who happens to be Cooper's dog.
She also framed her donkeys. We are trying to get everything set up for our show in November.
If you live around here, I hope you will come to our opening on the 21st at Marti's On Main in Albion. 6-9pm.
The dogs were inside a lot today.
Even tho it was relatively mild outside, we had a fire going in the kitchen. Felt good.
Around 4pm I went out to get Abbe so we could do some poles and lateral work. Once again she was an easy catch and was very cooperative. I truly believe she is much happier doing this... Even tho she is good for Andrea (still green) my gut tells me that I should stick with riding and let the driving go. At my age, the possibility of getting hurt is a major issue. Abbe has gained a lot of experience and it will not hurt her.
Trina did chores tonight. I had a coupon for Subway (buy one get one free), so the dogs went for a ride with me to pick them up and that was our diner along with some macaroni salad from last night.
I am determined to go to bed earlier tonight.
This video should be second, and the other should be first.
When I let Abbe out of the indoor, she did not want to leave. After the door was closed, she took off in the video above.
That's it! Night all.
