I had a good visit with the herd yesterday. It was extremely muddy up at the ranch so I didn't take any of them out...just too slippery! In fact, I slipped in Gigo's corral as I was brushing her. I brushed them all. They are all filthy, but more rain is forecast over the holiday weekend. Rain is a good thing, and California desperately needs it, so I'm not going to complain.
I brushed them all. Scout and Quad didn't have much loose hair, but Lucille...OYE VEI! She's a woolly mammoth! Poor thing. I hadn't been up there in 3 weekends and it showed! So, I brushed and brushed her while she ate a snake of pellets. She's such a GOOD GIRL! Sunni and Gigondas had quite a bit of hair come off, but nothing like Lucille!
It was a beautiful day up at the ranch. The roses are blooming, the hummingbirds were at the feeders, clouds were gathering over the mountains...it was a great day for a drive! I'm glad I had the energy to do so!
