He is risen!

Happy Easter/Passover everyone.  I love this day of the year. Christ has risen!!!!  Death cannot keep  us, we will live again.

We had a thunderstorm last night. We have received 2 inches of wonderful rain. We actually have mud. Haven't seen mud for a long time. We were beginning to worry that we would need to start buying hay soon.  The grass was still short and it was beginning to get crunchy.  I am thankful for the blessing of that rain. 

Tessa has been gone almost a month now. I still miss her. The farrier was here Friday and he was sad that she had to go but not surprised.   I picture her young again and running in a huge, green pasture with lots of trees and flowing water. 

Sandy and Ace are doing ok together. She bosses him around like I do Gary. I just don't kick out at Gary, lol.  She wants Ace within sight and will whinny for him if she can't see him.  He was so good for the farrier Friday. I couldn't believe it. He was always good about his feet but the grinder was new and he was afraid of it.  Friday, he calmly stood still and his feet were done in a flash. He has great feet.  He enjoys loping a lot too.  For almost 30 years old, he is doing very well. 

Belle hasn't given birth yet. She is bagged up a little but has a ways to go.  She looks like she could explode any day now.  Bless her heart.

Enjoy all the holiday celebrations you might be attending today.  God bless.

Wanted to show you all my Poppys. No, I'm not growing drugs, just like them because they come back every year and re-seed themselves. Less planting for me. lol. 

I read TB Friends everyday. Somedays, it brings tears and others joy.  He talked a lot about young girls and horses.  Men probably wonder what the connection is between females and horses.  I think it's the love that God gave us. We want to nurture and heal things.  We aren't ashamed to cry when a horse dies. We get angry as hell when one is mistreated. And, we will fight like a mamma bear to help one.  It's just deep, deep love. That's a good thing.

Spending the day working on hubby's computer.  How he can get it so screwed up is beyond me. I guess he thinks these free virus protection programs are a good thing. Not so.  Personally, I use McAfee. It has never failed me.  I'm downloading and installing it on his computer and am going to try and clean out the bugs that reside there. Wish me luck.

It seems Summer has made her appearance here in Oklahoma. High winds, high temps and very low humidity. We have had lots of wild fires with homes/barns lost. When there is a bad one, someone always calls the TV stations offering a free pasture for folks horses that are in the path of the fire.  This is true horse country.  We do have kill buyers but horse tripping is illegal. I wish it was in all states and it was enfored.

Sandy and Ace are playing nice with each other. I'm glad.

Stay cool and safe.
