At one point in the Nature Walk in Ketchican, there were a pen of Reindeer.  They love lettuce.  That is what they are begging for.  Their antlers were in velvet and so soft.  If you had lettuce you could pet them, otherwise they walked away.  Very interesting.  They were rescued from somewhere, can't remember what she said.

I am just going to write a bit because the other night, after I wrote for a while, it would just freeze up.

I told you I was going to have to sell Sage but a friend of mine from Oregon, near Umatilla, offered to take her and have her trainer and her work with her for a while.  Today we took her down.  We borrowed Marilyn's trailer, it is smaller and lighter than ours, loaded her up in the rain and wind this morning and took her and a ton of hay to Julie's facility.  Her trainer, Suzanne, met us and put her in a stall.  I am praying this works.  I need to be safe when I am riding.  They have a nice place on the Columbia River.  I am cautiously optimistic about this try out.

Other than that things are quiet around here.  Bob has been cutting hay, I have been putzing around here.  Gave a riding lesson last Tuesday and had to use Wrangler.  He did great, a little bitty girl on a great big horse but it worked out wonderful.  I will use him again next lesson.  Seems to be a good choice.  Pepper will be gone again.

Blessings to you all,
