Early........pouring rain. I guess they weren't kidding. The stalls will be a mess due to my prima donna's who don't want to get wet. Oh well, ....somedays you're the windshield, somedays you're the bug.
Good news is that Yukon is adopted! Congrats to Deborah! Yukon will be leaving Pony UP on Saturday. Way to go BIG GUY! We will miss him. Yukon is a really nice horse......great disposition, good manners.......ummmmmmm....maybe I can send Churchie instead? Deborah might notice....hmm.
Today is my Friday and I am looking forward to it. Lots to do tomorrow even if it rains. Horses get their feet trimmed and then dewormed. If we get a break in the rain, I will work on fencing and cleaning paddocks.
I had dinner last night with a fellow rescuer. It is good to throw ideas around and see what is working, what is not........who is who and how certain things come together. Always helpful......
it is good to work together and help each other when we can.
Today I get the oil in the truck changed, belts changed, tires rotated.........have to make sure it is totally ready to haul the trailer a long distance. Tomorrow I will have the tires checked on the trailer and the wheels greased. I should wash it.........the truck too. I hate to wash vehicles.
I read that a rescue is in trouble.....not a local one. This is bad. Lack of planning.......which has led to them actually starving their horses. Feeding straw. You read that right. This is inexcusable...CRIMINAL. I hope they go to jail. Taking folks money......and not spending it on the horses. This is what happens and why you should check out rescues.........visit them. I am not saying that everytime you visit Pony Up there won't be mud or dirt on a horse........there might be manure in a stall.......but all horses will be in good flesh, with fresh water, probably too much hay in their stalls.......they will be blanketed in rain or cold, they will be turned out in good weather.......they will have trimmed hooves........fly masks....... It makes me sick to think a horse has to be rescued from a rescue.
well off to the barn.......enjoy your day.
Pony Up fortune:
Find compassion and hold it tightly.
