Rice and Beans

Today Moon was a star.

Nothing unusual about morning chores...Berlin was waiting for me.

Before Moon and Lorrie's lesson with Elizabeth I long lined Berlin for awhile.  It occured to me that I could rig the bitless bridle and it would be perfect.  Now I have to figure out how to create a throat latch so it stays in place.  Anyway, by 9:30 the school for Moon began.

 They drove all over the yard and she was a doll.

 I mowed the lane back about 3/4 of a mile with a turn around so they headed out and loved it.

Lorrie was so excited about it she invited me to give it a go.
 Elizabeth drove and I took pictures.
 So peaceful.

When we got back, Moon was given a nice bath with that great mint wash.
 Of course you all know what she did next.

 Again and again and again.

 When I headed back to the house, there was Lucky taking a picture of me taking a picture of him.  He has seen this happening on my Journal over and over again....Me and Topper.  He stopped over to pick up a straw cowboy hat.

At 2:30 I dragged my butt down to Agape.  Have been such a bum, only going once a week....really fell off the wagon.
Too late to make dinner so I stopped at Weggies and picked up two $6 meals which we split.  Added a banana and orange to the fruit salad and we were set.  It would have cost me the same amount to make the meal....such a deal.
 Chores when we finished eating.

 When the days start getting hotter and hotter the girls spend a fair amount of time in the indoor away from the heat and any bugs that might be in the area.
I'm ready for a nap.
Night all.

Don't forget...the Rochester International Jazz Festival starts tonight.  
There are over 80 free concerts and we hope to catch some.

  1. Simply LOVE the first photo of Berlin! So enjoyed the video. Everything is so beautiful!

  2. I was just thinking how much I love those spots in the video, and then came the rolling! Lol!
    Have you thought about driving Berlin? She's such a sweetheart, I bet she'd be a doll.

  5. I'm sure you'll have some neat Fest shots. btw That first image of Berlin at the windows is BEAUTIFUL.

  6. I just love your horses and your blogging post here.

    I am going to miss coming in here as going away on vacation to the city my son and family. Next week. I said I would not use computer as I can get addicted right.Even on holidays.

    I can come back still later and catch up what I have missed. That is the bonus part of blogs.

  7. Moon is magnificent! :) And i love the first photo of Berlin. She's anxiously, but peacefully waiting...

  8. It occurs to me that perhaps Moon doesn't like the smell of 'that nice mint wash' ?
