I don't usually get excited about laundry, but I make an exception for this, show weekend coming up
This was me Monday morning.
One of the Budweiser Clydesdales came to base today! They were hanging out at the Shoppette (gas station/mini mart), and I got a picture. His name is McGee and he was SO CLEAN AND SOFT.
And of course, I went inside after and bought a case of Budweiser. I didn't want to walk out with something else and insult McGee.
Our lawn mower has been in the shop being repaired, so my bug phobic horses got one last lawn mowing session in themselves, out on the safari
Oh darn I forgot about my other one (err two...) which is so much better! Lol
Ponies got a bath before turnout, and of course they're spoiled, so I let them mow around outside the barn during bath time. Samson LOVES his bunnies. Honestly just adores them, and they adore him. So here is Calamity Jane waking up from her nap to see if Samson would share his mouthful of grass when he started looking for her
OMG that bun bun! Calamity Jane is adorable!
We need some nice pictures today. Between the terrible tragedy in Manchester and a few hard cow days, I for one could use some beauty.
Come on people, let's see some lovely photos!
Lovely Calypso in the sunset.
Lilith being a goofball.

The trial run of the cake I'm entering in the county fair next month. Guittard Chocolate sponsors a Chocolate Obsession class. You have to use at least 10 ounces of any combo of their baking chocolate. This cake contains over 20 ounces of chocolate plus about 6 cups of sugar - it could put a non-diabetic into a diabetic coma just looking at it. If it doesn't win, I'll be surprised and will be willing to name whatever does as a lethal weapon. (the entry cake will look better - we got a new oven so I had to check the temps and rack placement)
My husband and I have each had a tiny slice and we've given the rest away. I'm taking this chunk to the barn this afternoon to pawn it off on unsuspecting riders.
Here's a totally different set of photos that I unearthed the other day. As you probably know, the Spanish built a chain of missions along the California coast and some of them still exist. They're beautiful. This is the Mission San Antonio de Padua which is out in the middle of nowhere outside of the tiny town of Jolon. My husband and I camp out that way and stopped to visit the mission one day. It was gorgeous and well worth it but even more interesting to me was finding an Estey Organ inside. Estey Organs were made in my hometown of Brattleboro Vermont from the 19th to the mid-20th century - it was at one time the largest reed organ manufacturer in the world and shipped them all over. The company is long gone now but the beautiful slate-sided buildings of the factory still exist in Brattleboro. Others in my family have seen Esteys in odd places but it was a first for me.
