Our weather continues on its' quest for spring. We've had a bit of rain to dampen the ground, but not much. I'm thankful for green grass and lots of sunshine. Ruby and I continue taking walks several times a week. She's really enjoying our time...me too, but I can't help but miss my other girl, who also loved our walks. Mostly, I'm at peace about Annie. I know it was the right thing to do, and the timing was right. But, oh how I miss her! I hate how life is forever changed when a loved one is gone. Time lessens the pain, but it's never the same. I just wish it didn't have to be this way.
I've been working every day at the clinic, and business has improved greatly. It's good that I'm busy, as I have no time to ponder. I've been keeping very busy at home as well. My hubs has been working 6 days a week last week and again this week. That means a lot more stall cleaning for me. Last weekend I did the laundry, cleaned the house, groomed 5 of the 7 horses, cleaned all 6 stalls, added fresh bedding, cleaned all the water troughs and refilled them. I did some work with Eagle and had planned on taking Ladde for a little ride, but in the end was just too tired, so opted for a leisurely soak in the tub instead. Afterwards Ruby and I lounged on the bed and watched Seabisquit before heading out to pick up my hubs from work. It was a very long, tiring day, but kept my mind occupied. This weekend I can expect much of the same, and then hopefully everything will get back to normal real soon.
We had the appointment with the farrier Tuesday evening and I got Missy's shoes on her front feet. This is about 2 months earlier than normal, but the ground is so dry I can start riding her and working on her conditioning. My search for someone to work with Eagle and me still continues. I've tried contacting 2 different people that I thought would be good, but they haven't called me back. Maybe business is too good, but it would be nice to get a reply. If all else fails, I guess it will just be me and Eags after all...
I guess that's about it for now. Hope everyone is doing well and warming up back east. We're supposed to have a rainy weekend around here, which is good, I guess.
Until next time,
