silly time

We have had the most gorgeous early spring weather lately... sun, chirping birds, the grass is eeking (let's pretend that's a word because I'm not totally sure right now) out some green color...

and then... this.  It's snowing.

Don't worry, the horses were already out for hours this morning.  Java clearly made her preference clear when the snow started that should would rather be inside for a little, so they are in the barn with the back windows open, eating hay and hanging their heads out to observe from their comfy stalls.  When the snow stops, they will go back out, to roll in the wet ground and enjoy the afternoon.  Tomorrow it will be sunny.

The horses also have a little spring fever.  This translates into silly time.  Luckily the boarder who's horse was on permanent silly time left last week.  Yes it was dramatic.  Not the actual departure, but leading up to it.  But nobody got short changed so it all ended well.  Java even seems to like this.  She has her little chestnut pony (boarder) all to herself.

I'm huge pregnant.  The help I hired has not been here for 3 days, so needless to say, I'm staying quite active.  Getting on the tractor is a tough one though.  Bending in general is pretty awkward.  The rest is all pretty good. 

So, as I'm looking for back-up barn help, a new boarder and organizing taxes, I'm trying to prepare for the human addition that is on his way!  Sounds hectic, but surprisingly it's not.  I think this is all going to work out just fine.  Pregnancy hormones are magic, it's the only explanation.

Oh, and the snow won't last.  It's OK.  :)

Good to hear from you. Sounds like you're doing great. I haven't been able to hire back-up barn help either. We've traded feedings with the neighbors, and I tried hiring a local girl who lasted 1.5 hours.
