It was such a beautiful day yesterday up at the ranch. It was almost cold! Even here in the desert, temps dropped! And, the clouds, like I mentioned yesterday, were gorgeous! I just did chores yesterday. I swept out the food room and my tack room. Just dumb stuff. Put SWAT on Gigondas, who finally stood still. She still has one side that she doesn't like people on. Hung out with Scout. Visited Beauty's memorial.
This morning my cousin Valerie is coming over to give Gigondas a lesson. Then, I'm driving down to San Diego for a couple of days to visit my aunt and uncle. I need to clear my head and heart.
Last night Valerie called and said a neighbor of a neighbor had a TW mare for sale, a very CALM one, so hubby and I went down with her to look at her. It's NOT that I want another horse to replace Beauty. It's just that NONE of the others are ready for riding. She was a nice mare...a palomino with 4 white socks, older, probably 12 or 13...VERY CALM...she was the family's kids' horse and now the kids are involved in other things. I dunno...I'm not sure if I'm even ready for another horse right now. Yes, that's Scout looking out over the arena. Scout doesn't whinny when I drive up to the ranch, like Beauty always did. I miss her whinny. I miss her resting her head on my shoulder. I MISS HER!!!
