Well, here is the best thing that's happened in awhile; We found a little horse whose owner wanted to trade us for our bigger, younger, too-spirited horse. So KC will be the ride of choice at Little Red Oak Farm soon. Is that neat. I found him on Craigslist, and the owners board the little guy a mile away from me, so they rode him over to check out our mare, Bell. The young lady owner even knew my child and our horse's name! What a surprise and coincidence!
Another great first today was washing a fleece at home, with a wash machine. I've been meaning to get around to it. . .
But here it is, in its fluffy white spotted glory. It's Minwawe Chicklet's fleece-- a mostly white ewe with black eye spots (yuglet eyes) and gray flecket spots all over. I set up a washing machine on my driveway, piped hot water out to the washer, used Tide and pumped the exhaust water onto the crushed rock driveway! Worked pretty well.
Still so much to do! See you later in the Fall colors!
