Shiner walks away from Shadow in disgust after he marked the spot she just marked. They get real competitive that way, Shiner has even started to lift her leg to cover Shadows spots on trees! Dave and I crack up every time. It is like the dog who can hold it the longest wins!
We went to see the horses that were born when we were here last year, I was amazed on how big they were! They sold the horse I named FF and his mother, Memory, but all the others were still in the mare-ternity barn! Here is Lottie and Classy (He does have a few spots, but not many! Nothing like his momma!
See the yearlings from last year, this is Power, isn’t he a handsome guy?!?!!
Time still flying by…
I made Dave promise to keep my Thanksgiving Day secret and we celebrated my 50th birthday alone with a fire side steak dinner.
It was awesome!
The kids celebrated with me before we left. I got a talking Chicken from my daughter that says, “YOUR NO SPRING CHICKEN” It is a springy type of stuffed animal, then a book called “OLD IS THE NEW YOUNG” and a deck of cards with trivia from 1962, played cribbage with Dave on the road and learned all sorts of interesting Tibet's of information! It was fun, I got a gift card from the boys and my first ever birthday card from my granddaughter!
The weeks continue to fly by, we took shelter from a storm in the Log Cabin, I beat Dave at a game of checkers while waiting for it to pass. I brought rugs along so Shadow could walk around. (Floors are very slippery for some old dogs to walk on), Shiner enjoyed the rugs too!
Now it is the middle of December and I still haven’t gone metal detecting or horseback riding, now more Trees are down so no metal detecting until trails are cleaned up again!
Sally and Stan approved new tools for cutting the trees and vines! I have a Kantana Boy, Yoki, IBUKI 390 and a HAYAUCHI 390 Pole saw (21-Feet) coming soon!!!! I love working outside and I know I will love it more with tools that are sharp enough to cut! Even though the tools stay with the ranch, it will really be like Christmas when they start showing up in the mail!
