Now we have rain all week….and insult to injury, I still have my big ( HUGE) sun blister on my not insignificant nose. DOH.
We want to extend a welcome to Brian our newest WWOOFER volunteer who arrived here from Georgia yesterday. Brian will be here at the ranch for a month and we hope that he leaves here with very happy memories and a whole lot of experiences. Brian arrived at the barn just as we were bringing Quest and Lady, our big Shire horses home for the night and hit the ground running. Gentle Giant Meadows Ranch is not a place for the fainthearted and for the uninitiated, Quest our big bay gelding is a little (LOT) intimidating. Clearly, the stall door was a safe area and wisely, Brian spent his first evening at the barn, eyes wide and at a very safe distance from teeth and feet. Our newest WWOOFER volunteer has settled in and spent yesterday in the rain. Well, we are in the Pacific NW ! He and Greg got to work fencing, up to his knees in mud, fast running water and jungle like vegetation….and he is still smiling. Brian mucked out the cows and sheep, groomed the horses, picked out their hooves and he hasn’t packed up his car and left for Georgia. We think we will keep him around for a while.
Time to go, take care, keep safe, M
