Day 4---- 17 Days to go. June 10
It rained about 3 inches this afternoon.
I spent all morning mowing the roads and trails around the property. I didn't want us to get board just trotting back and forth on the same trail, so I made several switch backs and criss crosses, and I measured a few Kilometers off for checking times. Should have driven before mowing poor time management, (the story of my life).
So no driving today. Did a thorough tick check on Sammy, he loves being scratched where I removed the nasty creatures, he is one of those horses that get a nasty sore where a tick bites him.
That I find surprising because usually it is the thinner skinned, hot blooded horses that get the weepy sores from bug bites. He loves me now. I am trying to find something he likes besides treats, he is quite bad about nibbling for treats. I should call him Peppermint Patty. He does still get a peppermint when I put on the halter, but hopefully that will stop in a few days, as he is already much better about being caught.
Farrier Tomorrow, I can't Wait!!!

3" of rain. The water in this photo is of the driveway drainage ditch, about 5 feet deep right there.
