Sounds like a lovely day,Ladytrails. If the weather co-operates I hope to ride tomorrow.

I love how we are all wiser as we grow older....getting off a horse that is acting up to me is pretty wise.

He knows when you are happy. He knows when you are proud. He also knows when you have a carrot.

Clocks altered last night, so I am in a muddle time wise.

Left all the horses out for the weekend as it is beautiful weather. My little horse Rufus, now in his teens and a 5 year old TB, Lumpy are in the front paddock and I have been amused for nearly an hour as they play with a rubber feed bowl.
Rufus is the instigator picking it up and shoving it under Lumpy's nose until he grabs a hold of it. A lovely way to start a beautiful day watching horses lazily play with each other. I went to take some pictures but the battery os flat on my camera.

Bill and I started putting up the fence for the new pasture yesterday, it's almost three acres.
We had to fix the post hole digger first, the guy that borrowed it last bent the PTO shaft and didn't say anything and it rusted together....
He torched it and we were in business...

Susan - give Bill a box around the ears for not using a welding mask!

When it comes to fencing I use the front bucket on the tractor and just push the posts into the ground as we aren't stoney at all.

Tractors ... expensive -- almost necessary -- pieces of equipment. We looked at some yesterday and I think we are going to take the plunge ...

It's a small one, but should be perfect for our little place...

No way! He got a kiss for doing it....
Such a great horse husband.

Texas girl...

This is actually our bush hog tractor. Unfortunately, the Big Tractor's three point hitch is broken so we had to use it...
It's kind of small for the job, but got it done!

Funny, we start out looking at lawn tractors so we can trash the push mower, and end up looking at a 26hp tractor w/bucket, 3 point hitch and mowing deck. Excited about the fact that we will be able to mow AND do other necessary things around the place ... not so excited about the debt .. but it's an investment.

A beautiful, quiet morning here - and I'm the first/only one up. I think I'll sneak out and take advantage of the opportunity to take a solo trip out with Yahzi. It will be our first time off the property w/out DD and Aero along, looking forward to the extra peace of a ride for just the two of us.
