I hope you're all doing well and finding happiness and love and all the things that make life beautiful. We are certainly trying to do the same in our little patch of the world. Being somewhat introverts, our lives haven't changed all that much in the day to day living part. And, we do find ways to bring in aspects that we lost--like "Symphonies in the Sunroom:" An evening with a good glass of wine, a warm room, candles, and my best friend--my husband.
All of our horses are doing good, and I hope to get out on the trails as soon as I'm done posting to enjoy a rare Autumn sunshine.
Tumbleweed is still growing and learning. We are participating in something called the "100 Mile Challenge." It's something a friend started to get out walking with our horses. She has weanling that needs the walks, and I have oldies and Tumbleweed. We use the app All Trails--which records your path and distance. I have trailered him out for these walks, and we've had some lovely ones. That is probably what I'll do today-- a walk --and tomorrow, hopefully, a ride.
I haven't had as many trail rides as I'd like, but there have been a few.
Cowgirl is continuing to mend from her tendon injury. She is about four months pregnant, and that seems to be going well. I tried to put her out with the herd, locking Beautiful in, but the other horses were a bit mean to her and put too much stress on that leg. So, she's back in a 24x12 stall with a large turnout of her own. Honestly, she doesn't seem to mind it and interacts with them through the panels.
This has been a crazy year, but even in these times, there has been much to be thankful for. Oh, I have a new daughter-in-law! My son married his longtime fiance, and they will have a big celebration post-Covid. She has always been like a daughter to me, and now she is officially my daughter, so I'm very, very happy.
My granddaughter, Sophie, has been studying the Masterson Method. She was signed up to attend a clinic in Kalispel, MT, but a snow storm canceled it. I'm trying to decide which one to take her to next. Possibly, the one in Wickenberg, AZ.
Here are a few more photos of our autumn. Please leave me a little note about how you're all doing--and how you're surviving these crazy times! Any inspiration? Suggestions for living a happier "locked in"life? Any, and all, words of wisdom are welcome.
