Well, today it's supposed to rain. I am hoping that grass I planted works out in the pasture. It's just regular grass, we don't have any fancy pasture seed in this area! I love living in a small town, but sometimes it's very frustrating!

Hubby is going to build yet another fence. When we first went out to the farm, all the fences were down and had to be rebuilt. Then we got the mini donkey who was an escape artist, so we had to put a third strand up. We weren't supposed to be out there this long so didn't do anything real permenant. We decided that we needed to have another area in which to rotate them to so the main pasture can stand and grow. We have to do this way down in the woods on swampy land since his mother doesn't want them to ruin the paddock up by the barn. Thers is a bit of solid ground, but not much. So that means hauling hay way down below and stretching hose down to the woods. Hubby thinks it will be ok, but the horses will have to be down there for a couple months. Expecially if it's going to be hot AND dry this year. I wonder if he will let me bring the straw down there too...

Hubby is so good to me. He wasn't raised that animals are living breathing things. If they didn't have a purpose, they weren't needed. He is being real patient with me while I "pamper and spoil" my horse. This usually generates more work for him. He would rather I get into something cheaper like riding a bike or kayaking.

I am off to look at farms today. They are over our price range, but we have been looking for over 5 years. I could write a horror book about all the places we have looked at. I can't believe how some people live! Especially when they are older. I hope my kids have enough compassion to help me out when needed to I don't end up living in the squalor I have seen. Sheesh!

I was hoping to ride somtime today. I was going to be brave and take Jesse for a little trail ride. I usually ride down the gravel roads and seldom haul him anywhere. It's hard with that donkey who gets out and tries to follow if I'm gone too long. Oh well, it's supposed to rain today anyway.

The sun is finally out today! Yay!

Jennyandjesse - your donkey sounds like a hoot! So nice to have a supportive hubby, huh? Mine goes back and forth, some days is grumpy about me spending so much time at the barn, some days very supportive in helping me find the right horse.

Farmpony - beautiful pics! I've never been to DC, looks fun!

No riding for me today, have too much going on. Am trying to patiently wait for my new girth to get here from SmartPak so that I can start riding in my new A/P saddle. Plans are to save my dressage saddle for shows and school in the A/P saddle, which I can leave at the barn. Hubby was a little miffed that I needed two saddles...my trainer was surprised I only have two LOL!

My hubby go's back and forth in the supportive mode as well. He's been really good lately. I switched trainers and he has taken me to every lesson which is crazy because he usually refuses. I'm going to have to start taking myself though. I'm terrified to turn around there because it's a really busy facility and there are cars everywhere.

DC is a beautiful city. I made my husband take me to NY for my birthday and while it is a really neat place and I had a really great time while I was there, it never compares to DC. It's really clean (for the most part - it's got some pretty scary places). We found a really nice resturaunt w/ outside service and the food was AWESOME! I gorged myself and then we had to walk a gazillion miles to get back to the car but still... It was really nice. Usually when we go, it is so cold outside that we are darting from one museum to the next or it is so hot outside that we are drenched in sweat. Yesterday was a gorgeous day....

I wish spring would get here. Hailing/snowing in parts of our area and we don't get a lot of snow. The other side of the country which usually gets winter is basking in the warmth. Grrr
