Vaquerogirl was sooo right. Lots of us have just been getting by, doing the same old same old, day after day. Today, we girls united and broke out! No stall cleaning, laundry, yard work or whatever it is that we do day after day. Today was deemed "Girls Day Out". My girls, "T", my barn helper, and "B", my riding coach and of course,Penny Pinscher, met at the barn at 11:00 a.m. We had on clean clothes and shoes(only you folks with horses know the importance of this) and headed to Lincoln to a cafe called "Awful Annies". It was there that the fun started. We gossiped and laughed while having an awsome lunch.
Then we loaded back into the truck and went to Christensens Saddlery. SHOPPING!!!!! The girls helped me pick out a hunt coat and some shirts. They managed to find some new lightweight helmets they liked. I found a helmet that really fit me good, and then the sales lady informed me that it was almost $500.00. WHAT!!! My head and the horse I am riding aren't worth that much together. No helmet for me.
And there you have it. Women gone amok.
Came home during a fierce rainstorm and saw a car wipeout into a guard rail. We made it home with all purchases and dog intact. Will have to make up for it tomorrow, but it was worth it!
Yesterday we delivered Chip to his new home. GASP! I know, we never really sell any horses, they're all mine. He went to my cousins "Boris and Doris". Boris is ready to move up to a new level and this colt has the best temperment in the world. Boris is a VERY busy guy, and Chip is pretty laid back. I think the combo will really work out.
Doris and Boris just bought a BEAUTIFUL new home complete with horse facilities. Chip is going to be really happy here. These are his new friends, Buddy and Lucky.
Along with the colt, Doris and Boris also bought our used manure spreader. It was an interesting load, spreader in the front of the stock trailer and colt in the back. Some assembly required. For the spreader, not the colt. My loving husband bought me this spreader for Christmas one year. The BEST Christmas present EVER! Only you other gals that clean stalls will get this. And since he still loves me, he bought me a new improved edition to keep me rolling.
After some instruction, Doris is off to give it a try.
Looks like she already has the hang of it! And there you go, Doris and Boris out spreading S**t.
Whew! The last few days have been a blur. My mom had cataract surgery, which apparently they can only do before the sun comes up, and then had to see the Dr. early the following morning for a check up. Surgery did not go well, and we had to go the Dr. yet again the next morning only to find out that she must have surgery again the following Tuesday. In between her Dr. visits, Penny Pinscher came down with Kennel Cough and kept my hubby and I up all night until she had her Dr. visit.
Yesterday afternoon after the round of Doctors we broke free for an afternoon of fun and dinner out.
We went to see the Bridgeport covered bridge.
After a little sightseeing we went to Peterson's Corner for dinner. Steak and Shrimp! It was WONDERFUL.
Now, it's time to pay for the play. Max, my shoer is here today. That's a long day considering we have 10 horses. Sheesh!
I am a middle age married gal living out my dreams. If it poops, I'm your gal to clean it up! Needs mowing, say no more! Love my husband, my horses, dogs, cats and pond fish, all in that order. Oops! That was before Penny! Hmmm.
