The “Cool” Hunter

Clip-clop, clip-clop.

Horse shoes on pavement evoke memories of Mackinaw Island’s Main Street. The Island is a horse fanatic’s all-time favorite places to travel.

The horse to recreate those pleasant memories at the barn is Hunter. Hunter has four shoes. He came from a barn in Indiana which had extremely rocky soil. The boy can’t go out with anyone else until his shoes are pulled, so he’s in the run-in stall pasture until they’re pulled next week. The farrier will be here on Wednesday the 27th at noon to take care of his feet. Hunter can go play with the boys afterward.

The sticky, sweaty days are melting together. The hay adheres itself to every moist surface. It’s fairly disgusting. Poor Hunter, by himself, is sweating constantly because he’s always searching. Always curious. He wants to explore his world completely, and the movement in this weather is enough to make him sweat out every last ounce of water in his body.

With the purchase of their horse, Hunter, and the fact that they’re here so much, I have adopted two Minions and made them my cousins. Makenna and Caroline are now unofficially-officially related. Now I can tease them mercilessly. (I teased them with a smidge of mercy before, but now, nothing is holding me back.)

I Saw The Sign

Our new sign is beautiful! Thank you, delightful minions (and their dad) for giving me such a lovely gift.

The best part is that it’s lit by solar lights at night. Wait,  no, the best part is that it’s cemented into the ground. No, definitely that the graphic is professionally designed. Oops, I mean that it doesn’t lean. Or maybe it’s that the sign design is also available as a business-card. And… Ok, it has many positives.

I also had a great time riding Honey. They watched and took photos. Unfortunately, I deleted most of them (accidentally.) I did have two, though they’re blurry.

Sadly, I also deleted many lovely photos of the boarders. I’ll take more tomorrow.

I received a new halter for my birthday, but Melody gets to reap the rewards. She looks gorgeous in it.

After she saw the pedestal, however, Melody didn’t want to keep her feet on the ground. She likes to show off.
