We squeaked out another beautiful sunrise after a long night of rain.
The light was beautiful in the barn.
Had the stalls done in no time. This is what our barn (built in the mid 1800's) looks like. As our horses have passed away (had 6 for most of the last 30 years) I have removed stall walls and now the current three have studio apartments. Below is Berlin's stall..about 11 x 40. Outrageous! She keeps her stall clean and uses Masterpiece's as her bathroom.
Jill's horse Belle, has a stall that is about 12x30.
Abbe's is a mere 16x16.
Lily was present and accounted for.
This is the run-in part of the barn and is available to them during the day. Everything is irregular, but I love it just the same. Lots of character.
Phoebe and Gucci are out there with me rain or shine.
After chores I mowed the lawn....there were lots of geese in the field next to the outdoor arena.
Gary had to rake up some black walnuts before he could finish the hand mowing.
At 11, Jeff R. (horse dentist) arrived. Belle was first and could not have been better.
Next it was Abbe's turn. She was a good girl too.
Why do horses let us do this? Jeff is an outstanding dentist and they are very comfortable with him.
When it was her turn, Abbe watched.
What a surprise. Her teeth were great. No points and no problems. She did not need a thing and we will check her again in the spring.
At 3 I had an appointment with the message therapist. Hot stones! Of course I had to check out the fish.
Jill had duty tonight.
Gary and I went down to the Bergen Family Diner for dinner....I had breakfast.
Time to relax.
