This morning the temperature was around 40 degrees when the pups and I went out to the barn,
but it ended up over 60. Feels good but what is going to happen to all the fruit trees that are starting to bud up? This happened last year and we got no fruit!
After feeding the horses their grain, I set out the hay. Instead of putting it in the front paddock I pulled the sled out to the back pasture where there was plenty of sunshine and the ground was pretty dry. Abbe always finishes first, and she followed me out.
Maggie must have rolled in the ditch (full of water) again.
It was so gorgeous I decided to take a test ride on Sally's trike, but first
Gary had to lower the seat.
I put Little Wonder and Phoebe in the house
and was on my way. How many chances have I had to go on a trike ride in late February?
I really needed to get some sunshine on my face.
As soon as I approached Lake Road the horses spotted me.
I enjoyed my ride and tucked the trike into the shed by Gary's barn so I can do it again tomorrow. We should be in the 60s through Saturday.
At 2pm I went down to Helen's for a meeting regarding one of our murals.
Do you recognize these birds (by Al Cretney)? She has an amazing art collection.
As I did not get home until 5, there was no chance that I was going to make dinner.
We went down to the Stoneyard for a quick dinner.
The man that was wounded (lost a kidney and his spleen) is still in guarded condition. I was told that he was not hunting coyotes, but was out looking for deer antlers....
(it was dark, how could he see anything?)
and was in the second field (beyond those trees and behind the new house in the
back forty) when he was shot.
This morning when I was picking the back pasture, I noticed an ATV parked next to our back fence.
Late afternoon a young man picked it up and was followed home by a car (probably his Mom). It must belong to the man who was hunting for coyotes.
I can't imagine what these two families are going through.
