Oreo and Endurance Rider 6 - thank you for the kinds words and prayers. I just spoke to my sister and the visitation will be Sunday and the funeral Monday. Even typing this seems surreal. I ran Barry to the doctor this morning; he has bronchitis that was coming on the day before we buried his dad. He has never had bronchitis before and neither have I. Sounds bad.
When we left the doctors office I stopped by to see my babies and feed them handfuls of alfalfa pellets. It has been raining and very humid here off and on and omg the mosquitoes will carry you away. Biscuit's back was covered in those little nasty black flies and his backbone had little gritty feeling matter from their biting. I took Deep Woods OFF out of my trailer and sprayed on my poor fellow. They were more than happy to gobble up the pellets. I am out of my bucket of apple treats and will get my boys more. They lifted my spirits some as they always do but it really feels like the sunshine has gone away. I know Mom won't last long now as she has no desire anymore to stay. I don't know why this past year has been this way but it has been rough. My horses have provided my bright spots.
Hugs to all of you. Post lots of pictures of the beautiful fall leaves of Vermont - I am a sucker for fall leaves. They are one of my favorite things to make out of sugar for my cakes.
