My dirty cream colored horse.

Brandy patiently waiting, she needed to comfort me thru my cold.

Well, still havent found my glasses, cant do any riding in the rain, do have an eye appointment for Thursday tho. Its been 3 years, so I guess it must be time for a new pair of glasses maybe...Hoping it wont be bifocals :( Bought some mucinex(?) for my cold but still hacking away...maybe it will kick in in a few days... sure hope so. My ribs hurt from coughing.

Got 131 bales of hay in today, glad we had some help I was sweatin'!!! Now it is raining so glad we got it in. My new dilemma is I have misplaced my glasses. I am restricted to wear them while driving..... fred is going to be my chauffeur until i find them. I've looked everywhere, car, truck, barn, house, tipped chairs over, even looked in refrig.... who knows.... guess i need to sit down and say a prayer about it. cant really afford new ones. Do have an old pair but they arent as good.
Brandys' new trick today was somehow she chewed the harness off , thankfully it was still around her chest where we hooked her up while we set up the conveyor for the hay. Bought her a new one at Tractor supply today. See how long this one lasts. We had her at the barn with us while cleaning stalls and of course she left the barn (and thats my fault) :( we called and called , Fred spotted her , said she turned and looked at him and took off! So out in the rain with my cold calling her to no avail, walking all along to the edge of the woods. Fred goes back to barn to get "bug" RTV to go thru trail in woods, I call some more and lo and behold Brandy comes running across field from back of house. How she got that way, only she knows. I think.
Time to relax and put my feet up and take cold medicine.... :)

Thunder showers and lightning today, thank goodness for friends that care about my horses like I do. They put them inside for me while I was at work. Did get a double rainbow out of the rain tho , that was pretty.
With this cold, I feel like I have coughed out one lung, used a whole bottle of robitussin, that seems to have helped over the last 2 days.
Brandy was doing pretty well off the leash after her third day here so we let her loose out with us. Then... one day she put her nose in the air and off she went.... I called, yelled, kissed, whistled chased after her thru the long grass and into the woods. When she finally let me catch her I looked down at my jeans and I could see all kinds of brown spots on my legs... TICKS!! I hate those things. Gave her a bath that afternoon to hopefully drown any that might have been on her. Throughout the day I kepts finding them on me... makes me itch all over.
My two days off were hot weather horses were sweating, so didnt ride. Now I have a nasty summer cold.. yay..NOT! Didnt have a cold all winter, whats up with that???
Took Brandy to the vet to get checked out, she has a kennel cough, got her on meds , she seems to be doing better. Take her back next week to get Lyme vaccination. Now if she will just come when called off leash, she would be a great dog.

No pics, but it was a good day. Took a vac day to get dog, post poned. Used the day to play. Peter came over and got his horse therapy driving Bud and I let him trot him , made him smile :). I also got to drive him some more and he behaved very well. Went for an ice cream and saw some friends there, came home and finally rode Bandit around 7:30, rode til 8:3o, had a good time on him. So nice to be able to ride later in the cool evening. Off to work tomorrow. JOY!

good news, bad news sort of

Good news is that Linda made it back home safely with a good flight, with all the bad storms we were having the day of her departure I was concerned her flight might be cancelled.

Bad news is, we wont be getting our new black lab this weekend, hopefully on the 11th now she will arrive. Took saturday as a vacation day, so will use it playing with the horses now.
