Good Morning Everyone,
Looks like it was quiet here this weekend.
Lynn, glad you managed to escape most of the hurricane. I hope that Ivan is good to everyone down there. You Floridians have had enough.
I am back from a wonderful weekend. The weather was great, except Friday and it was windy and cold. We hudled around the chimenia and drank wine! It died down after dark. Sweet Pea got to go out all three days. There was lots of soft footing on railroad bed for her and not too many hills. I got down and walked her when we came to steep parts to go down and it worked out fine. Most important was that she felt really good and was so happy to be back doing her job. I loved seeing her happy. She was as good as gold too. She can't trot yet and she LOVES to so it was an extra special effort for her to stay at a flat walk. We sat around the fire on Saturday night and listened to a band of coyotes howling up a storm when all of a sudden and different, very unusual noise came from the opposite direction. It was a clattering the like of which I have never heard! We were camping in a 35 acre flat field and all the way across is a llama farm. It turns out that two males were fighting through a fence! They were running up and down making this god awful noise! The farm had a young guy caretaking and did not know what to do. In fact, he didn't have a clue! The racket went on for about 20 minutes! It was funny in a way. On yesterdays trail ride we came across a dead moose. It was so sad. It had barbed wire wrapped around it's leg and had apparently fallen down a rocky ledge and broke it's leg. He was huge and it was just so sad to see and imagine the struggle the poor thing had before he died. I wish they would outlaw barbed wire. It's really insidious and does such horrific damage to animals. So that's it from here. Back to work this morning and starting the November issue! Wow, time flies.
Check in today and let us know how your weekend was.
