Good morning all, just came in from taking care of the horses and running a few errands, grateful that the temps have cooled off slightly here. Corgi
, so sorry to hear that you got caught up in that mess of a storm system on the east coast. The heat is bad enough without bad storms making things worse! Dee
, sorry to hear about the drama surge. Doesn't it seem that when there is drama, it is never just one issue, or small? Sigh. Courage! Foxhunter
, now that I am on my home computer, am able to send the correct link for the Gila Wilderness: Gila National Forest - About the Forest
As I said, you will be able to find me where that wolf came from
The location you mentioned having seen on television could be Capitol Reef National Park in Utah.
I also plan on traveling the western states later. I know California well, but that is about it. WGrace and Susan
, yes I love our new barn. The covered arena is adjacent to the outside one, and the barn is very nice for those that stall their horses. My mare is in a small pasture with four other mares and two weanling colts, two gates from the main area. My colt is in a fairly large paddock with another yearling colt until his pastern wound heals (see "Pastern wounds" thread in Horse Health if you are interested), then they will be turned out with a larger herd again. All of the women at the new place ride English and are very accomplished riders. The other morning a couple of them were in the outside arena on Clydesdales with the cows to desensitize their horses who had never been around cattle before. I joined them and we had a great time moving the cows around. They were telling me later how fun it was, and so I said that I could always use a new sorting partner! I am really enjoying having people to ride with, as at the old place I was the only boarder who rode (and really one of only 4 boarders) and it was a training barn so everyone there was always working.
Some pics of the new place... outside arena, covered arena (outside arena is directly behind), looking out to the paddocks/pens (outside arena on left in this photo). The pasture behind the outside arena is where we grow coastal.
Need to get on with a looooooong list of things to do today.
