ANOTHER BUSY ONE!
Last night Barb emptied a load of sawdust by herself after she did chores. I could not help as I had bridge. This is the way the barn looked when I opened the door this morning. Love it like this! I had done the stalls the day before, and she added to King Mustafa's and did the run in. This old barn is not fancy, but it sure does have character.
Did chores quickly as this was the first day of chorus.
Seymour and Sid still prefer the porch on Gary's barn and hang out there most of the day.
Got to chorus around 10 and did not get one decent picture. We are doing a lot of Gershwin music this semester.
After lunch the farrier arrived.
All the horses were very cooperative and ready to fall asleep. They are loving this cooler weather...we are too.
Masterpiece was the 4th to be trimmed. This 31 year old amazes me. Before he came in he was cantering out in the pasture. He was a very swollen (with arthritis) knee that he can hardly bend and was messing around. John, is so good with him. He can't bend his leg back, but will allow it to be placed on a stand. I've never had a horse with more heart!
Sidney has finally started to grow. Today I was looking at Wanda's Art Blog and there were several drawings of him, Seymour and Bermuda. I had sent her about 50 photos a few days ago, she decided to use the cats.... and there they were. Now, I need to get a drawing done myself so I can really participate. Check out her link. Do you want to participate?
While John was doing the horses feet, his dog (Duncan) waited in the truck. He had some time to run around before they left.
Barb got here around 3 and Mustafa was the last to be trimmed. This is his third time with John and he has been better and better each time. His feet are looking great.
Since Barb was here, she did chores again. What a break. So I invited Jenny and the boys up for dinner.
After we ate, she went to an open house at Finn's school, and the boys played out in the yard with Gary until it was almost dark. Boy did it get cold.
