I’ve been so very busy with getting the stalls finished and with Barrow, the new puppy! Doesn’t help that Bad Pants is gone to Portland for work this week. I just feel… behind in everything!
8 weeks, first meeting at the show
He LOVES BP's goatee!
Our stalls are finished and the horses seem happy. It’s easier to spend quality time with them this way as Casey tends to become possessive and cranky when he sees me. He doesn’t want Molly near me, though he behaves if I go to her. Silly pony! So, we’re spending a lot of one on one time together, Ms. Thang and I.
While I may not find the stalls ideal, Casey is happy. He’s not weaving at all. He can see out on 3 sides and the wall between him and Molly is not solid, so he can see her and see out her side too. He’s… content. Not something I’ve seen from him very often. And I must say, it’s nice to be able to get the horses out of the muck!
9 weeks, first bath at home
Already posing for pictures!
In addition to the stalls, we’ve gotten the green light to put in raised beds for a garden. The LL even suggested a spot for tomato and vining crops, where he, in the past had a garden. This saves us some space in the raised beds. So, hopefully we will start the process of getting set up when BP returns, this weekend.
School with Dude, spring cleaning and pony therapy take up all my non-puppy time. Barrow and I have another show coming up on the 19th, Doodle arrives for her 2-week Spring Break on the 21st and BP comes home this Friday, late. Somewhere I need to fit time in for sleep and blog reading. Thankfully, Barrow is starting to sleep through the night.
Dude will be stretching his own Spring Break by a week, and taking it two weeks early (we will work while the rest of the school is on Spring Break later). I am so looking forward to Spring Break! No school for two whole weeks! I really think I need a break. This online/homeschooling gig is wearing on me. It’s like having a full time job!
Anyways, I’d better get Dude back on task if I ever want to get done with school for the day.
How was your weekend? How’s your week shaping up so far?
