Was that a wild fire or a planned burn? We're under a burn ban here. Hoping the thunder stoms that they are calling for tonight actually happen

It was a planned burn. I burned it, so now I can get to the trees to cut them down. We had 6" of rain, it raised the lake about 3 feet. So fire department lifted the "no burn ban".

Pilgrim was a rockstar going over the dam, Did not hesitate one second.

Well, I just got off the phone with the lady I sold a colt to, and they had just gotten home from a driving trial...Sunrise Ridge in Texas. He was giving her a hard time, and the vet injected his back, and now they are doing great!!

She was SO happy, and so am I!!

I drove Tootsie today, and had a good, but short, drive. I haven't driven her much lately, so I did not want her sore. She was quite relaxed for the howling wind, and all!

Taffy, don't cut those bushes in Spring or they will come in twice as thick. I wait until they leaf out then brush Roundup on a few leaves of each plant. The plant takes it to the roots and the plant dies. I have this problem on one side of the driveway. It's easier to spray but I'd rather keep the Roundup on the plant and not have it land on other growth.

It looks like we are picking up a new driving pony Friday!

We had a mini we were going to train for my husband's driving pony that we picked up last year that was underweight. Well now that she is at the proper weight and feeling good she is no longer sweet and calm but full of energy and very challenging about some of the simplest things - especially being caught. She's not a bad pony, but I think she will be a bit much for several years for a beginner driver. We finally made the decision to sell her and look for something well trained for my husband.

So last night we went to check out a pony in the next county over. She is about 36-38 inch range and a total sweetheart and seems very well trained. A solid stop and easy to transition through walk-trot, etc. My husband was very comfortable driving her. She is a bay/brown tobiano so very cute too. No papers or anything, but we really don't care about that. We just want something safe, sound, and sane so he can relax and have fun.

I'll post pictures when we get her home.
