S L O W D O W N

Time to catch up on some sleep.  I have not read in a week and am running on low.  On my way out to the barn I needed an umbrella and it rained all day!  Sara and Saint Tim went to a Fiber Festival/Fishing.  Too bad the weather was so crappy.

Maggie and Angel were turned out in what will be their regular run-in and pastures for the first time.  I'm not so sure Maggie is going to let Angel in, but we shall see.

 All the girls are sharing a fence line and so far so good.

 When Angel and Maggie came in for hay, they watched us in the grooming room as we were shredding paper and cleaning tack.

 By noon I put all the horses in their stalls.  Angel sure did not need to get a chill and get soaked after everything she has been through.  So they vegged and I went to drumming.

We got moved to another space as there was a workshop going on in the Strasser Studio.  The acoustics were very different
At some point during every session, we all have the opportunity to solo.  Below is Zak, who really knows what he is doing.  When he was a little boy, his Mom boarded a horse and pony here.  Never expected to be in a drumming group with him 30 some years later.

I'm hoping to get some of the drumming group members to drum at a big cancer walk in Rochester that will be held on October 20th.  A great cause.


 Stopped at Weggies on the way home and did not get here until around 5.  Put the ponies back out and cleaned all the stalls.  Set them up for the night feeding and shredded more paper while they ate some grass and got rained on again.




 Put them in for the night around 7, and wouldn't you know it....the weather started to improve.


This is going to be a nice, mellow evening.

NEWS FLASH! NEWS FLASH!

Sara cleaned up at the Fiber Festival.  Check this out!!!!

 The hat and sweater were made from wool she got from her sheep, after she went through all the procedures it takes to finally spin it and turn it into something.  I'm sure impressed!!!!  So talented!  You can get more scoop and see her sheep by going to her site (Punkin's Patch) which is on the sidebar under "my favorite blogs."
 That's it for now.  Waiting for them to return so we can have another one of Auntie Reg's cupcakes!
Night all.

  2. Hey there,

    I haven't visited in a while and had to read back to see what the heck was going on with the horses. I'm glad the new girl is better and made it through the ordeal. Why were they moved from FL?

    I live in the Raleigh area and would love to know which vet helped out. We have lots of great vets in this area and a good vet school as well.

    Your posts always make me so hungry!
