Today Esther of Ishtar's Ark in Niger, sent me a current picture of Sheba. She is a Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy that was brought back from Sweden. What a beautiful girl. Notice the difference in scenery compared to where I live.
It was raining this morning and the temperature dropped to the 30s. I went out early to groom seven horses before I could put their blankets back on. They were so covered with dry mud I had to use a shedding blade.
I left them out in the elements while I cleaned the stalls and by 9:40 had to put them back in because they were soaked and I felt sorry for them.
Abbe had enough smarts to eat under the shed roof. One corner of Joe's big area has developed a nice puddle. I keep trying to get rid of the water and it comes back. There has been a tremendous amount of melting.
The horses are not used to being in the barn all day, so I kicked them out and cleaned stalls again before I set up the evening feed. When they came in at 5:30, they all looked like this.
I actually tried to take a nap today and it really messed up my rhythm...Did that ever happen to you? I would have been better off staying up. Last night I kept listening for the 60 mph winds and this morning I got up early...you would think a nap would be a good thing.
