I sat down on the ground and was hoping Rusty might come up to me but alas, she has not changed her mind about me. This is Rusty and Cody. Rusty did follow me to the gate as long as I didn't look at her. What a girl.
One of our barn kitties hanging out in the wall. Her name is Phantom. She spends a lot of her time in that wall. She is very timid and I don't think we have ever gotten to touch her.

Our Katie and her dog Lucky cleaning stalls today. This is how she works off her board. They are all stripped good and the horses aren't coming in at night any more. Bob has to dig up Amelia's because there is a water leak under it. It is standing water and we have not had that much rain. Anyway, that is not the stall that floods. She and Ditto are out with the donks and Pepper and Wrangler are sharing a pen. It will soon be time to let them out on the pasture parts of the day.
I am back to 6 days before Sage. Darn darn darn but this will really be better. Bob can be home and that is really important to me and I can go on the Mustang Horse Club ride on Saturday morning. Tomorrow I must go clean my saddle. It still has mud on it. Also Bob told me to go tomorrow and find some riding clothes that are not cotton. I like riding in jeans but when wet they do not help. I will go do that. I don't think there is water anywhere that we will be riding but I learned to go prepared.
I wrote an article for the Back Country Horsemen newsletter about hypothermia so I am going to practice what I preach. Not ignore what Bob taught at the meeting a few weeks before my big splash.
When you're young and you fall off a horse, you may break something. When you're my age and you fall off, you splatter.
