It's been a long time since I posted anything and I apologize for that. It already promises to be an extraordinarily hot and muggy summer and it is just getting started. I don't do well with the heat, need to lose more than a few pounds, and so my outdoor activities are limited when it gets so overwhelmingly humid and sultry. It also doesn't help that I slipped in the mud yesterday after a lengthy thunderstorm and while trying to make my way quickly to the barn to check on the horses. Not to worry, nothing was broken but both my ego and a few limbs were badly bruised.

Still, Steve agreed to feed the horses their supper for me while I cooked dinner and stood safely in mainly one spot in front of the stove. I'd told him that it would be a piece of cake because I'd left up the rope that separates the pastures when the gates are open. Brandy was on one side and all of the others were in the upper pasture. I thought Steve would easily be able to feed Brandy her huge helping of food required to keep some weight on the girl's 33 year old frame without interference from the others. Unfortunately, "SOMEONE"  had chewed the rope in two.......wonder who?
