Mellon continues to improve weekly. Dusty is still his unwilling companion of choice during his
convalescence. Since the weather was nearly perfect and they were getting bored in their small
paddock we let them out to wander around the barn for the weekend. They seemed to appreciate
their new found freedom and took time out from grazing to investigate the goings on in and out of
the barn. The stall guards had to be put up to enforce the rest of the herds privacy and hay stash.
I had planned to ride Dusty this weekend but the farrier came on Friday and I like to give them a
day in between shoeing and riding. Unfortunately, Dusty threw a shoe on Saturday...nice... so I
had to postpone my ride on her until she can be reshod. The herd didn't come in Saturday night
so I couldn't keep Blue nearby for a Sunday morning ride. I swear Blue has a calendar and knows
when the weekend rolls around so he disappears!
It would have been nice to ride and if I was truly motivated I would have loaded the tack in the
mule and gone on a reconnaissance mission to find him. But it was just as rewarding hanging
out with Dusty and Mellon and enjoying their company.
Until next time

When your horse follows you with out being asked, when he rubs his head on yours, and when you
look at him and feel a tingle down your spine you know you are loved...do you love him back?
