Wally has been living here for a year today. What a wonderful year it has been. I am blessed to have such a wonderful, kind, thoughtful soul mate in my life.
As I write this, I’m waiting for Wally to finish his shower so we can go out and feed the animals and then get Merlin loaded. The plan is to be on the road by 6:30. The trailer is all loaded up with my equipment and except for the horse we are ready to go. I’m very excited.
When Wally got home yesterday, I asked him to hold on to Merlin while I went into the house and got his bridle. Once his bridle was on, I asked for a leg-up and off I went, bareback. Dream went along with us. That horse has an awful lot of get up and go left in her. One day soon I’m going to put a saddle and bridle on her and she how she takes it.
I did work Split yesterday (I used her to do morning chores) and took both dogs for a good run off the ATV. I had to haul hay up to the sheep so I ran the dogs at the same time. It didn’t take much of the edge off her, but it was enough so that she could be tolerated loose in the house that evening.
Praying that Merlin will load this morning.
Until later …
