Back to work this week and impatiently waiting for next year's job postings to come out (since I am officially surplus as of June 30).
Enjoyed a beautiful Easter weekend with some nice spring weather. Unfortunately winter isn't done with us yet as they are forecasting 10-15 cm of snow on Friday/ Saturday. Really? It's freaking April already and I need to get my barn up! We still have a good foot of snow out in the field and its been melting for a week already. On a positive note, I did finally find my missing 75 gallon water trough peeking out from under a snow bank. Stan, I'm really trying to send some of this moisture your way. Maybe I can mail it to you?
Evenings are getting long here now so my daughter and I took advantage of yesterday's beautiful weather and went for a hack. We made it out of the yard and down the road about a half kilometre before her mare had a fit. This isn't bad considering how uptight her mare gets when she's out in new places. Hopefully next time we will make it a little further. We finished off with a good workout in the field. If the mare wasn't going to behave on the clear, dry roadway, then she could work her but off in 16" of heavy wet snow. Soon enough she will get with the program. My old man Sam was a gentleman as always, but very much out of shape. Hopefully these little excursions will slowly and gradually bring his 22 year old muscles back into shape for some serious trail riding this summer.
I hope everyone has a great week!
