Jake, the farm dog, greeted me this morning when I went to the barn to help out with chores.  I mucked out stalls (ok, a stall) and emptied water buckets and filled them with clean water. Afterwards, I visited with some of the horses. I rubbed their soft noses and felt their warm breath on my hands. I love the way they smell;  a mix of hay and leather.

Most of them were looking for treats. Texas and Oso pretty much expected something and were miffed with me that I didn’t produce. I figure it’s not a good idea to treat without them having worked for it in some way. So after a lesson is fine, but just cause you’re cute. Maybe not.

Fantom was happy with a pat and some scratches. She’s such a pretty girl. Don’t you love her blue eyes?

I decided that if I make it to the barn a couple of days a week, I can save a lot of money on joining a gym.
