Garden Still Alive and Well and Happy
In other farm news, over the coming months Dinny will be spending some time working with riders in the Victoria Riding for the Disabled program. I'll still be riding him several times a week and keeping up with my lesson program, but he will also have another important job to keep him busy. Down in Washington, Bonny steadfastly refuses to get pregnant. This is terribly frustrating as we were all so excited at the prospect of the cross with North Forks Cardi. I know this is just the way it goes sometimes in the world of horse breeding, but sheesh... the last one was so easy!
The electric fence down the road where we are able to turn the horses out into a bigger field than we have here at home was destroyed the other night, perhaps by some marauding deer - fixed that today only to discover that we have no power down at our barn so our electric fence isn't working either! Will tackle that ASAP as it would be somewhat un-neighbourly of us to have the horses trotting through other people's gardens in their endless search for tasty stuff to eat.
