Happy Birthday MyLight
We ended up celebrating a week and a half late but it is never too late for a party! MyLight turned 19 on February 21st. MyLight is a thoroughbred mare who started her career on the race track and finished her career as a dressage horse. To read more about MyLight
It was a windy and overcast day on Wednesday, the day of our birthday celebration. However nothing brightens my day like a piece of cake, I will admit I love cake. Carrot cake is not my favorite but I am a HUGE fan of the cream cheese icing (I love it so much I don’t care if it goes straight to my thighs)! MyLight was not in love with her piece of cake and I think she spit out more than she actually ate. Buffy and Lily were the same way. Harmony and Missy refused to eat any at all. Cuffie on the other hand would have eaten the whole cake if we had let him. That was a surprise since he wouldn’t touch his carrot cake when we celebrated his birthday last year!
Cuffie did not patiently wait his turn; here he is trying to sneak in and grab the birthday girl’s cake
Jason and I spent a few hours at our new farm over the weekend. We’re trying to work out our plans for fencing. At this point we still agree on only one thing: where the perimeter fence will go. Yes, I do realize there isn’t exactly a lot of decision making to be done on the location of the perimeter fence! Actually we’re in agreement on two things, the location of the perimeter fence and that it will be a wood fence. I was lobbying for no climb horse mesh with a board on top but I do agree with Jason that as far as aesthetics a wood fence on the perimeter is a lot prettier.
Another topic that tends to disintegrate quickly is when we discuss the layout of the barn. Jason thinks the barn should be all stalls and nothing else. I look at him in disbelief as I can’t fathom how in the world he can possibly think that is a good thing. He thinks there should be a separate small building for feed, tack, supplies, etc. I haven’t yet heard where the wash stall is supposed to be, maybe in one of the run-in sheds in the pasture? These discussions are entertaining even if they are not always productive. I look forward to the day when all of this is already built and done . . . I wonder what the odds are of that happening by next week??!
