Unusual Experience!

We had quite the experience out riding in the grazing lease last weekend! It is always somewhat unnerving when a wild animal does not behave in a "normal" manner and this fellow certainly did not! It isn't unusual for a wolf to be very curious and follow, just not quite this closely. Sure did get some great photos though, but the horses were somewhat uneasy about it all which is certainly understandable (we were too! LOL) At least this time there were cameras along to prove what we experienced! Photos taken on Friday July 22 and Saturday July 23. There were four riders on Friday and twelve on Saturday and he still followed closely!

It has been so wet this past week again, rivers are overflowing their banks big time, very soggy. Beginning to get a bit annoying, would be very nice to get some riding and training done! My arena was more suited for canoe lessons today than horsemanship! I now appear to have a miserable summer cold - yay :(

Here is a photo of Fire that Krissie took last week when we had some sunshine. Pretty nice looking yearling, I think. He goes on Saturday to his new home along with KoKo. We shall miss them but it looks like they will have great homes.

It has been a few days of cleaning up after last weeks crazy storms, tremendous winds and rain and golf ball sized hail on Thursday and Friday. Electricity was out from 9 PM Thursday evening until 8 AM Friday. Grass is growing like crazy, just hope we start to get some haying weather so we can get good hay this year.
