Just a quick little post this morning, it's already 7am and I know sleepy little (and very big) heads are stirring and tummy’s starting to grumble as their time clock kicks in. It's breakfast time!!! Yesterday was a busy day, I had my Mustard Seed volunteering duty in the morning and Greg had a doctor appointment...so no chores got done. Sadly and very inconveniently, poo doesn't just evaporate and disappear so it was still waiting for us when we got back. DOH!!! Actually there was also a pickup truck parked at the gate waiting for a truck bed full of said smelly, very rich black poo. In the winter there isn't much time for anything in the afternoon as nightfall comes so quickly. Stalls were cleaned, water buckets and hay mangers filled, feeds prepared and it was time to start evening chores, phew! Sam, came for her first "horse care" lesson this morning, it's lovely to see her enthusiasm, eyes bright and excited. She reminds me of me, I wanted a horse so badly as a child and would have done ANYTHING for the chance to take care of one. Greg and I were firm, before you ride, you learn what it takes to take care of a horse properly and if she gets through that stage and shows commitment then she can ride. A very special little boy and his special mom have given us a special request, we are going to prepare a "cast of characters" page on the web site so the animals I talk about and that are so familiar to us become known to you as you read. Thank you for visiting, I have fun sharing our day with you, it's 7.20 am take care. M
