Thank you for all your kind words and thoughts yesterday. While my heart is breaking, you helped put things into perspective. I needed that.
Anywho, today’s words – Floss and I did a quick nip with the van into town this morning to get some more hay.
It’s that time of year – when the grass is thinking about growing but not quite enough for the horses to lose interest or give up their daily haynet. When they walk away leaving a half-full haynet for the Spring grass then we don’t give them any more hay. We haven’t quite got there yet. Another few days, or possibly even weeks. So I went into town to the hay merchant and bought 16 bales. It always keeps for emergencies. We just drove in and came straight back home. We decided to go when we usually check the horses (doing the Minions en route)- a time when BeAnne sort of expects us to be away in her daily routine and so would not be wondering where we are and missing us. Every minute is precious now.
And then we came home, were met by an extremely pleased BeAnne and we went into my shed for a nice afternoon of making sheep-no-one-wants (that’s what I call them). It is my occupational therapy. There is quite a good flock now.
