Sweet Boys...Simple Pleasures

Not too bad outside today.  A little rain....a little sunshine.

Gary went to yoga and out to lunch.  After finishing chores I mulched the hay and mowed the front paddock.  The grass is filling in.
Alice arrived at 10 and the boys were hiding in the outdoor arena.  I whistled and they found us.
They did not come into the grooming room as they have been....took a few minutes.

My job (aside from talking a lot) is to do the their tails, pick their feet and put on hoof dressing.
Alice does everything else and once again they each got an hour of "massage" /grooming.

Around 10:30, a mutual friend stopped up.  LuAnne and Alice have been friends for decades, and she was one of my art students (tho I knew her long before then).  We caught up...that's for sure.

What a great way to spend the morning!

It rained after the boys were turned out and they rolled.  

Spent some time doing nothing with Little Wonder....
then I got up the energy to make dinner.  Pilaf, pork chops with onions and apples and that old fashioned carrot/walnut/jello salad.
The tulips are going nuts!

Got the boys tucked in (and cleaned them up).

Poor Buddy....he really wants to live in his old stall.

Of course this was the most beautiful part of the day again.
Night all.

She Sings

Chilly and dull this morning, but it turned into a beautiful day.

I was picked up at 10:30 and headed to the Chili Community Center for a gig.

It takes us at least an hour to set many chords and amps.

Today they held an Ice Cream Social and we provided the entertainment.

Home by three.  By then, Gary had both apple trees planted.  Love them!
Not in the mood to start on a dinner, so we went down to the Diner.  The trees were positively gorgeous near the entrance.

Home before 6 and out at 7 to tuck the boys in.

Some good light in the barn.

Buddy and Rebel don't know it, but we are having a spa day tomorrow.
Night all.
