And the livin' is easy.
Well, at least how the song lyrics go. Hope everyone is enjoyin' their summer time.
No vacations this year, not much going on but caring for da horses, and hens. Speaking of the hens, the little peeps are no longer little peeps. They are growing up- their voices are changing too! It's so fun to listen to them. The one flighty one is the worst. She sounds like a rusty nail scratching on a black board. Sparkle's voice has changed to a nice mature hen sound,but Star ? Omgawd.
This week is supposed to be delightful !!! Cooler, and the best part, lower humidity. Life outdoors is so much harder when it is higher than say 55%. So it has been busy around here... mowing pastures, cob-webbing in the barn and much more. This is in addition to all the other things that go along w/ owning a small horse farm. It is hard squeezing it all into those days where one doesn't run out of steam. So far, so good though!
I had to clip the rest of BoJangles' winter coat this week. Even though his winter coat shed out, it's still a heavy "summer" one left. He now is sporting a "not so good" trace clip- but at least he's cooler. Evidently, his DSLD has begun spreading to the rest of his body and Cushing's Disease is setting in. I will see how he does this year and get him on some meds for it if he needs it. Poor ol' guy- he is just the sweetest.
Riding lessons are going well, and life is good here. Ha- til temps go back up to the 90's and get more miserable. Have a wonderful week!
