A big change in the weather. Steady rain, high winds and plunging temperatures. Before turning the horses out, I tried the new blanket on Seamus and love it. All kinds of opportunities for adjustment.

Seamus is the only one who came in from the rain for a few short minutes.
I made some corn chowder late morning as it's to hard to start dinner by the time I get home from a She Sings rehearsal.
By noon the ponies were back in the barn. With all the options they have, I can't believe they prefer standing in the rain.
Today we rehearsed at Bodziaks. They had lost power for three hours earlier and while we were there, the sun showed up for 3 minutes.
Today I experimented with my new iPhone....trying to video a couple of songs by placing it on a table in front of me. We were acoustic and as you will hear, Greg, our percussionist, is not playing a regular drum set. He is now using "boxes" and the sound is much softer. (For some reason I can't upload the videos).
Our practices have been sporadic and the majority of December we will be on vacation. It's going to take some effort to get back in a groove. We will have a gig at the end of January.
Got back to the farm by 4:30 and turned the horses out so Janet and I could reset the stalls.
A perfect night for soup.
My buddy missed out on an afternoon nap with me.
HOT OFF THE PRESS!!!

Another grey, damp day.
Little Wonder wore his new coat and I finally got the straps sized right.
Rebel and Ronin were doing their dance.
Janet and I picked the pastures and kept them company. This afternoon Little Wonder and I took it easy.
Then, I got out my uke and started looking for songs by Eva Cassidy. Love her music.
Here is a very short clip. If you have never heard her music, I would highly recommend it.
PM chores. The electrician came back and now the hot water heater outlet and on/off switch are set.
Seamus's new blanket arrived today. I'm hoping it will fit....they were all so filthy tonight I will try it on him tomorrow morning after a good grooming. It's a large foal/small pony blanket. We shall see.
Pitch black by the time we walked back to the house.
Dinner was SO DELICIOUS!
I took out a bag of our sauce, threw some meatballs in it and made open face sandwiches on ciabatta rolls for dinner.
The combo with an Italian dressed salad is so perfect.
