I spent the day watching the Keeper work at the barn. We have below freezing temps here with high winds and a supper wind chill. I think it feels good, but the keeper told me it was so supposed to get sleety and rain tonight. Now I don't care much for rain unless it is really hot outside. The rain makes me cold. Can''t have that now, can we? After all, I'm a star!
The Keeper filled and stacked sand bags at the end of the stalls so the water won't come in and get our feet wet. She dug trenches so the water would run off and give the sand bags a chance to do their jobs. Then she reinforced the dirt barriers that help keep the water out. Being in Texas, we have a lot of flat land and no place for the water to go when it comes down really hard and heavy. So it looks like the barn is ready for the bad weather tonight. Seeing all of this, I think I am beginning to get the idea as to why the Keeper doesn't have time to deal with this blog. So since I am just hanging out in retirement, I figured I would just take it over.
I have all kinds of stories for you about wheat happens out here. I will also include book reviews with Hay or Nay distinctions. Yeppers, I have been thinking about this a lot and I am ready.
So here goes. The first thing, I need to correct is that I am now 40 years old and heading quite quickly to the 41 year old mark. Not bad, for an old horse. I've been there, done that, and have an opinion about eveything. Enough for now, I am sure everyone is trying to recover from celebrating last night. Get some rest and be ready for my next post. Until then....
