On A Lighter Note........





















video
So on a lighter note, I'm now done with my rant, I was busy today again. Yesterday evening, I was able to lunge the girls 15 minutes for Misty and not so long for Kola, she doesn't get it yet. Better than she was last year, but she slipped and then I was a bit worried about her torquing a leg, so this morning we hand walked 15 minutes each which went well. I'm exercising and building them up a little before I ride as they weren't worked all winter. Also Steve and I took the dogs down to the local conservancy for a nice walk in the woods. We came home to my tulips at the end of the driveway and a bunny hiding in the brush. The video is our Cardinal, who Stephen has named Mr.Special. He likes to sit on my truck and beat it up and sure enough he was there. Then we made ourselves the best dinner.........Lobster tail and jumbo shrimp with fresh sugar snap peas, roasted asparagus, new potatoes and fresh steamed spinach. We save Thursday night for special dinners.

Oh dear, I forgot to put those up, Victoria. I'll get them up soon. They are just starting to bloom, so I'll wait until full bloom and start snapping photos, just for you! :)

Handwalking is good. I did that a lot with my gelding when he was injured last winter. Never underestimate the power of walking!That Mr. Special bird is too silly! Oh, and your dinner sounded SO good! I just ate and it is still making me hungry! What'd you have for dessert??

Callie said...

Pony Girl, strawberries and rasberries in cream. mmmmmmmm

Nice pictures, love the bunny. Couldn't get the video, it said Not Available at this time, try later, so I will try later. I haven't had dinner yet so reading about yours is making me drool! I think we are going to the coast tomorrow for lobster. My all time favorite thing to eat!!

What a silly bird.
Love the tulips-my grandmother's "other" favorite flower. I think I have one left of hers. I need to move it this year, if it comes up again.
Can't wait to see the lilacs. Our bushes are leafed out but it will be awhile before they start budding.

Midlife Mom, Your neck of the woods is where ours come from. Cold water Atlantic! It's so yummy!



BEC,My tulips are going mad this year! I didn't know that your flowers bud later than ours. They are just starting to open.
