All sorts of good stuff

Nothing really new, except I'm totally itching to get out on the trail.  Nobody seems to be able to ride.  I might take Jasper for a hike tomorrow.  It's glorious out in the woods.

But going back a bit - Jasper and I have been taking walks in the evening.  He is always worried about the door to the grain bin (it's dark in there, and there's a cat, and who knows what other monsters) so I stood in there and found some goodies to feed him.  He's so cute!

Pedro wants to eat Jasper alive.  He broke my round pen.

There's a tree on our hill that reminds me of Woodstock from Peanuts.

My friend raises happy grassfed beef.  If you want a beef, or part of a beef, that's raised humanely, grassfed, and butchered locally (no feedlots, big cattle haulers, or slaughterhouses), I can put you in touch with her.

Liam is the heifer whisperer.  Or so he wishes.

Maybe he'd be a better steer-whisperer?
He had more luck with the sheep.  I had put down my camera by that point, but he made friends with them and insisted that we should have sheep again.  I miss my sweet little Roseanne.  But we're just not fenced for sheep.

Then we went for a hike.  A very short hike, but I was so glad to see that this area hadn't been logged.  It's one of my favorite places for a nice relaxed ride.  I am hoping to go out there again tomorrow.


Oh, and since one of my riding buddies is out of commission for a couple months this summer, I am definitely more motivated to ride Jasper.  Then I can make John ride Scout and we can have lots of adventures together.  Finally!

Jasper is a lovely mule. Where are you located? Those do indeed look like happy cows.

Would love some of that happy steer beef but don't think it would be financially sensible to bring it to Oz. :) Great pics!
