We'd like to plan a ride on Skyline Drive at McCroskey state park. I was looking at it on Wikipedia and after seeing the pictures there I'd really like to go while the wildflowers are blooming. Which would be soon. I can't go this weekend or the next though, so maybe it'll have to be during the week.
I'm leaving for Longview tomorrow morning. My mom is going to go with me to visit her parents. She insists that we take her Jaguar instead of my little Toyota with 200,000 miles on it. I don't think she appreciates my good little car. I can't wait to see all my grandparents. I wish I could be gone longer, but it's not fair to leave John with so much work.
Speaking of work, it's time to move those turkeys out. John was nagging Katia about her grades, telling her she needs to apply herself, she can do better than 100%! when suddenly Katia was yelling, "Turkey out! Turkey out!" and ran to save the day. The little brown turkey was perched on the side of their box. He didn't know how close he was to becoming a tasty little crunchy doggie treat.
I got a great deal on a saddle this week. Well, I paid what the saddle is worth, but it was cheap! An old Simco saddle, not pretty, but it's comfortable and it fits both Soxy and Bella passably well. Much better than the synthetic saddle we had for Soxy. Now that each of the horses has their own tack (for the most part) I wish I had a big enough tack room to make them each a spot with their name on it. I could get all creative with name plates and everything. Someday...
Here's Bella saddled up with the new saddle for her second ride.
