Today, I sat in a chair and read a book while BG did a little grazing. I’m still not feeling 100%. In fact, right now, I feel a bit of a sore throat again. So, I’m taking it easy. I guess this is a good time to be somewhat sick because we are all stuck at home anyway…
The grass is so fresh and green, I hate to weed whack it when a horse could have some enjoyment. The problem is that there are no fences around the house – where all these volumes of grass grow – and the horses can become rambunctious.
They don’t behave like they did in Grass Valley when I let them loose. I think because they have so much grass inside their paddocks in Grass Valley, that letting them out wasn’t that special. But here, all the grass is already gone, so getting out is FUN!
That’s why I have to hand graze them. I have to be there, holding on, so they don’t do anything crazy. Also, our house is on a hill so if they start running anywhere, they create divits everywhere.
HERE WE GO!
I am so very sorry you have this trial as well. Well, at least you and the horses get to go home to the grass. RIP Dodger.
Thank you for this
Dawn, I am so sorry to hear of this – a tremendous loss for you! In fact this year has not been kind to you – all.. From what you have written – I’m sure Dodger was the lucky one to have you love and care for him, and he knew it! He may be closer than we know, frolicking with his horse friends and loving every minute of it. When a person is caring and nurturing as you are, good-byes are painful and you remain here because your good works are not yet done. Be kind to yourself it will help you stay well.
With love, Chris
