Hope everyone had a good weekend! It was a bit busy around here with the 70 degree weather yesterday especially. It's always a good thing though, busy = $ I now have 2 boarders (technically 3 if I count my sister, her quarter pony lives here rent free) though I have always said I wouldn't have any and I've been pleasantly surprised and enjoy having them. One is my doctor, her mare and now her grandson's new gelding live here, her grandson is also a lesson student. The other a long time friend who owns a mare that is a daughter of my retired show mare Buttons and another reining bred mare. Her mares moving in was a spur of the moment thing. She had them boarded at a therapeutic stable/boarding barn and was working 7 days a week and long, long days so wasn't able to see them pretty much all winter. She made a trip to see them and they were in horrible condition. The place was appalling. Probably 30 head in maybe an acre (pushing it to be that big) in mud to their bellies, thin and beat to hell. So I went with her and pulled them out of there. I stopped counting at 200 scrapes & bite marks on one mare alone. I'm glad I could help her and I have the pasture that each boarder gets their own pasture large enough to sustain their horses. Both boarders, their kiddos and a few lesson students were all out yesterday afternoon. Turned out great because there was a group pick up pasture poo party and I drove the skid loader because I didn't have enough pitch forks, it's a good day when you get to watch the manure scooping!!!
Today I will have my 4 yo nephew, I'm sure he will do or say something funny I can share later, he always does. He's a total ladies man already, cracks me up. Last week one of our convos went like this. Out of the blue he says (read it with the r's and l's as w's)"Aunt Manny, 2 girls are falling in love with me." of course I laughed at that, which was apparently offensive, he then said "What, it's true. I just look at them and they fall in love. I can't help it."
