My horse thinks she is retired. LOL!
Between the end of the quarter grading and getting my hay in, this week has been out of control busy and stressful, so no riding for me. :(
I was supposed to have a lesson this past Saturday, but I got a call on Friday afternoon that the hay I was to buy was here from NY, so I absolutely had to cancel my lesson and drive to get the hay on Sat. morning. Of course, had the 350 bales of hay I bought this summer not MOLDED (grrrr.....that is not a story I feel like reliving right now, as it makes me SO MAD!) I would NOT be getting hay IN ALMOST NOVEMBER!!!!!
But alas, I did need to get new hay. So the 191 bales we brought home on Saturday (home at 2PM....oh how fun....nothing like it taking FOUR hours!!) are just gorgeous. The mares love it and I love it. It actually smells like HAY and there is NO WHITE MOLD GROWING ON IT! AHHHHH, how pleasant!! I never realized how stressed out this entire hay ordeal was making me. Now I feel so much better, as though I can sleep again! The plan was to get the remaining 59 bales tomorrow, but it seems that it is going to rain tomorrow. SO I guess the hay will wait until Wed.
So in the meantime, I have 100+ bales of CRAP hay to sell as mulch. I have to get it out of the barn pronto! Ad is in Uncle Henry's and I am praying someone comes along and buys it all.
I will write more later this week when life slows down. This Saturday marks the start of hunting season....I will officially become a hunter's widow, which is my payment for all the horse shows all spring, summer, and fall. :) It is all good, just makes squeezing in rides (and maybe a lesson????) that much harder.
