Between 6:30 and 7:30 this morning.
Before I went out to the barn Sidney decided to serenade me on the piano. Gary came into the library and wondered what the heck I was doing.
Barb helped me with chores this morning. It was beautiful when we started and grey by the time we finished.
When we finished, I dragged the indoor and outdoor rings. Jenny, Barb and I were riding later.
Gary continued to work on the roof and I drove down to Apple Creek Farm to mow the lawn. This should be the last time for the season.
Got some apples for the horses and us!
Jack and Louise have a few trees that are not picked in the orchard they lease out...There are not too many apples left.
and the ones still on this trees are huge! Those that fall on the ground are still perfect.
This afternoon Jenny, Barb and I all managed to show up at the same time to ride. There were so many orbs in the photos I took.... decided to play around with photoshop. Someday I am going to do my entire post this way....so artistic.

When we finished and went back to the grooming/tack room....Masterpiece walked in with us for some attention. Currently 31 and gimpy...he is still has an amazing spirit. Our kids were there when he was foaled, not knowing that we would buy him at 20 months old. First horse. Even with his bum knee, he still has quality in his life and that is good enough for me. He eats like a little piggy, and even tho he can hardly bend his leg, gets around. Unfortunately, he thinks he can canter and it gives us heart failure.
He and Jenny are a pair.
Those darn orbs won't stay out of my pictures!
Did evening chores and came in for dinner. Jenny brought us some lasagna she had made. Lucky us.
Made a quick salad and we were good to go.
We were in the high 50's all day, but rain has now arrived. It's not even 8pm and I'm through with this post. Time for some hot tea.
Night all. It was so nice to get in some riding today. Thank you Jenny and Barb!
