melted into a beautiful morning.....
The bikes were waiting to be ridden....
Gary and Daniela left for a yoga class before 7:30.
Ariana went out to the barn with me to help with chores.
By 9 it was 80 degrees and started to get muggy.
The ponies spent a lot of time in the shade.
After chores, Ariana and I went on a bike ride. Lucky for us, there was a breeze.
Grampa and Daniela got back after we did.
I went out to mow the back pasture.
The ponies came out and joined me, eating the mown part while I worked on the rest.
I think Belle is about ready to join the herd. On Friday I will work on that.
Back in the house for lunch, then out to the Studio Barn where Gary was working on his chair.
A PHOTO SHOOT.....
It got hotter and hotter....muggier and muggier.
It was supposed to rain, and it finally did. Two five minute torrential downpours 15 minutes apart. It was just enough to perk up the outdoor arena which I dragged yesterday. At 4:30 I put the horses in as I did not know what the weather was going to do.
Finn, Coop, Kevin, Ariana and Daniela went to a 4pm movie so Gar and I took advantage and went down to Barber's for a Balboa. Jen made dinner for them after work.
When we finished eating we drove over to the Welcome Center to see what was happening.
At least 6 boats were docked.
Of course the weather was perfect when I got home, so I let the horses back out...picked the stalls and set them up for the night....again. After two showers today, I was soaked again....too muggy for me. Went back in the house, grabbed some ice water and sat in front of a fan. 5 minutes later Barb called and had half a load of sawdust for me! Yayyyyyyy!!!! Back out to the barn to help her unload it. A very long day.
By then, all the horses were back out on the grass.
Look at the beautiful coats on those babies!
Gar picked up the girls and we were all ready to crash.
