Moving Right Along

We miss our boarders Boomer and Ben.  Boomer was with us from our first day on the ranch 5 years ago.  But we are moving right along, doing a major clean-up in the barn.  David is well ahead of me.

 David has power washed both Ben and Boomer's stalls.

 Now he's working on the runs.

 I'm slowly working on treating the wood in Ben's stall.

I'm slower than Dave because I've been playing hooky.  Paj and I have been enjoying pasture walks.  With Paj's bum hoof, I don't want to work him in the sand of the arena.  I worry he might pull that shoe.  So we're having fun in the pasture.

 Away we go.

 Paj threw in a little Spanish walk, completely unasked for.

I'll leave you with our special visitor.  We hear this guy at night, but to have him outside our bedroom window in daylight is a rare treat.

Wow you and David's work is never done is it?? Love the owl shot :) I've always wanted to see a great horned owl in real life!

I love owls, though they were a constant threat to our chickens. We have recently rehomed our girls, they all went to great homes. I miss them, but we were simply covered up in eggs knee deep all the time. Where I loved the girls, me being vegetarian and DH only eating a few it just didn't make sense to keep 45 chickens LOL. I hear the owls at night here and now I can think awww those beautiful owls. :O) Paj looks great!

I'm sad they are gone, they were such fabulous horses. But I am looking forward to getting to know Paj and Reggie a bit better now. Will you get some new additions to the stalls?

I know you miss the Clydesdales, their majestic presence leaves a huge hole.
The stalls are looking great !

Paj wants to work! How beautiful! LOVE the owl. Wish we had one (or more) to help control all of the bunnies that are too darned fast for the puppies!
