Sarah and Stanley

I watched something amazing happen today. Sarah and I took old Stanley the quarter horse out to graze on some new grass today. Sarah wanted to lead him so she started leading him from green spot to green spot. Then they moved down around to the back. I walked behind them thinking to myself that she is living my dream. When I was her age, I dreamed of having a horse or even just being around them, and there she went. Soon she had Stanley following her like a puppy. She jogged and he trotted right behind her being so careful not to step on her. She turned and he turned. She stops and he stops. I told her he has bonded with her. That horse was on her like velcro! I will have to bring the camera out this weekend and get a movie of her and Stanley.

Keeping busy

We have been keeping busy working and volunteering up at the stables. We have ridden a couple times but the horses are very barn sour and do not want to go out for rides. They would rather stay in the barn or be with their friends. Work for me has been stressful and Sarah has been sick and I missed some work. I go back this weekend. The weekends have been a nightmare with staffing. Not enough staff and everyone is shrieking at me about it. I wish I could go out and make some nurses and CNA's out of mud!
Signs of spring have begun here. I saw a couple squished skunks and the birds are starting to sing. There have been red-wing blackbirds back too. The males come first and start setting up territories. The females come later on. The snow is melting and b
uds are starting to form on the trees. A few more warm weeks and dandelions will start to grow! Here is one of the latest pictures from the farm. Enjoy! P.S. my hair looks very grey in this picture, its not. Just the sunlight I guess...
