 Nothing out of the ordinary this morning.
 Beautiful, sunny....buggy.
 The ponies kept coming in from the pasture.

After the stalls were done, I went along the fence line in the front paddock and cut down all the weeds.  By the time I finished I was soaked.
Took a quick shower and headed over to the Northampton Driving Society Carriage Show.
 (More pictures of these beautiful horses below).

Home around 1.  Gary had duty at the Welcome Center and I spent the afternoon mowing.
Put the horses in for grain and let them hang out for awhile to get away from the bugs.

 When there was some shade, they went back out to the pasture.
 We had a surprise dinner tonight.  Jen and the boys were at her friend's (Carrie and Pete) for a BBQ and called Gar to see if he wanted to stop by for some goodies (which he did on his way home).  I did not have to cook!  Grilled chicken, Polish Sausage, potato salad, salad and watermelon.  What a feast!
 The same people who gave us dinner, donated a huge arbor to Skoog Farm last year.  Gary is now using it in the Pergola, and put up one section on his barn porch last week.  Can't wait to see how it all turns out.

We have some beautiful flowers in our gardens.

By the by...after the driving show Tina, Sandy and I went over to take a few pictures of Chloe and Calypso.  Here are my photos....

Below are some of the shots taken by my friend Tina (Christina's World).  Apparently we went to the same places!

 Enough already.....
Night all.
