Next I had to change the huge water bottle on the dispenser because it was empty. Well, as I pulled it off it cracked me squarely in the nose. Ouch! It still hurts but I’ll live.
The rest of the day was spent going out to the barn to check on Sami. It has been raining buckets on and off all day with high winds and some thunderstorms with lightening thrown in for good measure. So running between the raindrops and dodging lightening bolts was a fun part of the day.
Then tonight as I was bringing the horses in I was treated to another thunderstorm and we all got totally soaked. After I put Surpass on Sami’s leg and fed I headed into the tack room for their nightly carrot treat. That’s when I heard the digital fence box beeping and blinking red. Swell, it wasn’t working again, which is not a good thing since I’m training Nikita to not leave the property with her collar on and the underground fence as her boundary. It wasn’t working a week ago and I had the guy come out and fix it. I just sent off the check for two hundred dollars today so they’ll be getting a call tomorrow.
In the meantime I have to walk the two dogs on leashes to do their business. Ginger is good she’s an absolute machine. Nikita, not so much, it takes her a good ten minutes to find just that perfect spot. Of course, they both had to go out after dinner and it was still pouring.
I’m hoping that since things seem to come in threes that’s about it for the day today. Then again there’s always tomorrow!
Until next time
