The "dirt guys" also came and worked on the lot again. It's looking good!
The road in front of our lot, however, is not looking so hot. It was not properly "bedded" when it was put in and, with all the recent rains, it actually ripples when the dump trucks come in with their loads. It is quite torn up.
Thankfully our house is the last on the street (for the time being) and the street is a dead end, so it will not be a problem for traffic. When our construction is finished, my father-in-law will re-do the road.
Good job, Morgan. Now it's Brooke's turn.
That's trick riding, not barrel racing, Brooke!
Much better, there, Brooke! Now THAT'S a barrel run!
Meanwhile, Brooke rode a friend's horse. By the time our horses were put in their stalls, fed, watered, and given hay for the night and we got in the car, it was 7:30 p.m.
Tomorrow we will set up the poles and work on pole bending. It's supposed to start raining (AGAIN) on Thursday, so we'll need to get our practice in early in the week. It'll take at least two days without rain for the arena to dry out. After the girls practiced on their horses, I rode on my Lady....I do NOT run poles or barrels. In fact, I don't RUN at all. I walk. Slowly.....
My favorite laundry helper, my Kenmore He4t washer and dryer make short work of all our dirty clothes. And, boy, do we have dirty clothes!
...before heading off to bed.
