Still hot, still muggy, still buggy. But after today it is supposed to be mid-80s all weekend with even a dip into the 60s at night maybe. BE STILL MY HEART. Fingers crossed it happens or I am going to be one mad person.
I let Remus out at 6:20 this morning. It was 75 and not too hot yet and bugs didn’t seem too bad. Um. Yeah. Three minutes after I turned him out he was at the gate grumping to come in. Not happy about being outdoors at all. The flies were bad but not horrible. He is so spoiled. I made him stay out till I got the barn all cleaned up and set up for the day.
I then went out to the barn and did all my chores while he glared from his corner.
By the time I finished up and went to go get him in he was actually grazing but still within reach of the gate.
And then when I got to the gate he proceeded to ignore me till I turned away to walk away then he was like. Wait I was just kidding TAKE ME IN!
So spoiled. So now Sir Rides Very Little is tucked in front of his million and one fans. Loving life again.
I saw two twin fawns yesterday driving out. Tried to get better shots of them, Mom had jumped in front of me and left them behind (I am sure she circled back and got them later after I drove away but yeah Mom not nice leaving babies behind). They were so cute. Also we had turkeys racing each other down our driveway yesterday morning. I didn’t have my phone or it would have been hilarious. It was like they were drag racing each other down the pavement. The wildlife here is still amazing. Though I am about to kill some raccoons if they dont stop destroying my bird feeders. UGH. We also have at least one Kingfisher pair in our pond area. I could watch them swerve up and down from the water and up in the trees forever. So fascinating. Never boring at least.
Anyway I haven’t ridden anymore this week but going to look at that barn today to check it out and I have a lesson this weekend with Shannyn. So at least will ride once. I may try to ride at home if the weather does cool up but not sure about bugs. Last night I tried to let Remus out early and the bugs were so horrendous (they really were) I had to put him back up. Poor Remus. Up in front of fans eating hay. Life is tough.
How is the weather and how are the bugs in your neck of your woods? Has Texas cooled down any yet? Is Australia nice and cool now? Can I come visit? And are any of your horses as spoiled as Remus? I think he takes the cake right? Pretty sure he does.
