Ok. I had breakfast and lots of it...we will see how this serves me. I had a big hearty microwave meal and I will track while it is fresh in my mind. The day is warming up quick...so thankful. The lambs are all doing great. My sick baby is up and able to keep up with the other lambs...in the greenhouse. He probably would lag behind out in the open...they run up/down the ramp and across the yard like nutcases. I will put them out on grass in an hour.
The ponies are all turned out and delighted to enjoy the pastures. I have hay to maneuver back into it's position in the barn but the ponies are ignoring it with the grassy pasture at their ankles.
Today I have a list to go get more supplies for the arena...the purlins to tie the uprights together for better stability. I will leave and go secure that before noon. One piece at a time.
I stopped and spoke to a neighbor on my hay trip this morning. I rarely see folks out so I stopped when he was fetching his paper. He had lived here for 45 years. I think he lost his wife recently. That is the only problem ...maybe not for some...of being really rural...not as much contact with neighbors. Hopefully I will get to know more folks as time goes on.
