Pam is lovely after her in-depth spa treatment.
Seamus is doing well on stall rest, post-colic surgery. Thus far he has been a model patient. We’re all hoping his solid mind and good nature carry him through his last couple weeks of stall rest. He should (knock on all the wood you can find) be back in the show ring this fall.
If nothing else, she should win “shiniest” based on the amount of scrubbing I had to do. That mare has a tail like you wouldn’t believe.
Because the show season is in full swing, it’s pretty quiet around the barn. I think that works out to Josh’ advantage right now–he’s there constantly, measuring, planning, moving, working. New barn construction/renovation begins June 1, and he is all over having things ready.
If you come visit, you’ll notice that we’ve got a new front gate (please keep it closed so no dogs get out on the road), a new turnout, and the vegetable garden is going in. Many thanks to Vern, Paul, and Shelley for lending a hand on those projects.
They tell me that barn renovation will take about two weeks, so look for fun pictures from exciting locales the first two weeks of June!
