I spent some time leading Secret around the yard today while Cliff trimmed the fruit trees. I helped him load the limbs he'd cut off onto a trailer, then loaded some junk from the rental place on top of the limbs. I opened the pasture gate so Cliff could pass through on the tractor a few times, because if he'd had to do it himself, the horses would have escaped. They always seem to be "guarding the gate" at the most inopportune times.
I came inside and ate a bowl of hamburger stew, napped for a spell in my recliner, and then decided it was time for a horseback ride.
Once back from a quite rewarding ride, I spent time with my filly, Libby, grooming her and reviewing with her the few things I've taught her.
This evening, Cliff's sister and her husband came over and watched a movie with us, and ate a bowl of leftover stew.
It's been a good day.
