Thanks again to Jeanne and Dave for all the help.

Through Mariposa, up the Dangerous Mountain roads, And pulled in at eight a.m. With his big truckload of hay behind the barn. With winch and ropes and hooks We stacked the bales up clean To splintery redwood rafters High in the dark, flecks of alfalfa Whirling through shingle-cracks of light, Itch of haydust in the […]

Tad Coffin does it again!

I brought up a few more horses to play with, and Mr. Coffin generously offered to come give them a test drive.  The mare hadn’t been ridden in years.  She arrived on Montpelier straight from the New Holland sale with a saddle mark, poultice, over grown feet and a big knee.  We let her rest […]

Tack (and other stuff) sale!

Today my wonderful committee and volunteers spent the afternoon tagging equipment to sell this Saturday, and it was a job!  We still have a bunch more to do, but it should all be set by Saturday.  And Linda P showed up to help!  Bravo for Saratoga for getting down here and getting involved!  We kinda felt […]

Smash and Flash

Gets confusing.  I get their names mixed up.  At any rate, they both went out on a trail ride today that proved to be more than we anticipated.  With all the recent storms, trees are down all over the trails.  Some we had to get off to negotiate (well, J3 got off.  I sat there.  […]

What a morning

Totally unplugged.  As I no longer have an office, everything depends on my cell phone (which is actually a misnomer: it will do almost anything except make calls.  I really have to work to find the Phone Function).  I forgot to bring said “phone” to the barn.  Yeah!  Nice and quiet.  And as it was […]

Keswick Farm Tour

Once again we were on Peggy Augustus’ beautiful Old Keswick Farm for the farm tour organized by Grace Church.  I brought Triple Tax Exempt and Robert’s Tribute this year, and they were super stars!  I thought Taxi would be the best choice, as she is super friendly and people oriented, but Robert surprised me. He […]

What a weekend

Sunday Wic was putting hay on the ground, and Jeanne3 and Dave “volunteered” to go with me to pick it up.  That was pretty uneventful.  We met at the barn, drove over, picked up hay and filled the bed of the truck and the trailer.  There were still 27 bales left in the field, so […]

Okay, update.

Yes, I know it has been  awhile, but I really do not like being on the computer no matter what the latest “in” thing is. I don’t like the television, either. So TRF really picked the wrong blogger. I can’t stand that word as well.  So now you know. But I said I would give […]

Things have been crazy

So, I had to arrange to get twenty horses sent to Aimee (poor Aimee.  She probably sees horses in her sleep about now, she’s got so many), move everyone out of the top fields, figure out which stupid geldings hated each other, move them again, and empty out the top barn.  My tack room is […]

Still cold

Dang.  I was at work until 6:45 last night, busting open water tanks and running water out to fields in the pickup (thank Dog for Mike and Francis Youngblood and four wheel drive).  Tom Chapman thankfully figured out that one of the tanks’ floats had frozen in the up position, thus indicating to said tank […]
