Louie and Jones broke out during the windstorm we had last week......at midnight I went to the barn, after my mom called me and said "horses were on her porch!" Yikes!
In my jammies, glasses and rubber boots I raced to the farm and found Louie and Jones milling around my mom's back porch.....apparently waiting for treats. They came right to me and I lead them up and put them back......then fixed the gate that they broke down. After the adrenaline rush, I could not sleep ..so I stayed up....mistake...I was so tired the next day at work. Hard to keep my peepers open.
We made a great video of the Past and Present Pony UP horses...not sure how to share such a large file yet, but I hope to put it up soon.
Our website is down and we are working on it. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Our next big project is a new tack room. We are so compromised on space. Our old tack room will become our feed room and then we will have more room for hay in the barn. Always a new project coming along.
I visited the Humane Society yesterday, looking for my cat....I didn't find him but I did see so many lovely cats......big ones, little ones , older ones and busy, busy kittens! The Kitsap Humane Society is overloaded with cats.....if you have room in your house and heart......go and adopt a cat today! There were about three cats that were twenty pounds or better.....HUGE. I am pretty sure my cat is not coming home...it has been over two weeks. I think it was coyotes.... he ran outside and I couldn't catch him....and off into our ten acres he went.....end of story. The coyotes are very brave and we see them in the yard frequently. Our cat was a house cat and never stayed outside....one mistake and we lose him.
I am off to do chores...run errands and then I have to go to work for a while.
Pony Up fortune for tomorrow:
It's in the bag~!
