So Long 2019

Crazy weather today.
Dull, colder, rain, sleet, whiteouts, wind....
and all that before 1:30.

 Berlin acted pretty normal.

( Little Wonder's coat has really grown!)

 By then, the horses were soaked and covered with snow...especially Berlin....
so I put them in the barn at 1:30 with plenty of hay and water.

 Of course three of them had rolled.

 I took it easy for the rest of the afternoon, then got ready to go to Brockport
for a 2 hour jam session at Sara S's New Year's Eve Open House.
Many of our Buskers were there.
 We had a great time

 and our listeners joined in when they knew the songs.

Great food, drinks and conversation.
We were home by 9.  Perfect

My Last Town Board Meeting....

It rained all night long.
What a muddy mess.
At 7:30am it was so dark my camera flashed.

 As soon as the horses were turned out, Maggie had to do her roll in the water thing.

 After chores I ran down to the bank and Wegmans.
Got back to the farm just in time to catch a shower before going 
out to lunch with my friend Barb P.  Many years ago she boarded
King Mustafa here.  First we drove to Holley, but the restaurant was closed
and we ended up at Barber's.  We have been doing this for several years
between Christmas and New Years.  Always good to catch up.
Unfortunately, she has now lost both of her horses and I don't
think she will be getting anymore.

There was a short time when the sun came out today

 and it was brilliant.

 Too bad it did not last very long.

 Last night Berlin ate all of her grain, some hay, drank most of her water
and left some manure in the stall.  This is how she looked....most of the 
time she seems normal.  I just feel like something is bugging her once in awhile.

 At 6pm I went to my last board meeting and
I'm really going to miss some of the Town employees.
However!  Mary and I are going to be just fine and life will go on.
I picked up some veggie flatbread sandwiches on the way home and we winged dinner.
So nice to have a fire going.
 On New Years Eve I will be jamming with some of my music buds 
for a couple of hours at a party Gary and I are going to.
That should be fun.
For now....
Night all.
