|I love living in Nova Scotia- this is never far away|
So yes, I guess it's still fun times. I enjoy the projects. Especially when I don't have to decide whether to do the project or ride. I am able to get both done.
In the winter Ed and walked through our woods and marked some trails. This week Ed started cutting them. We only have 10 acres of woods so the plan is to have trails that loop around on each other. It's not as much fun as going off on an adventure but it's a good way to train and cool out. I went in yesterday with the clippers and cut a lot of branches and small saplings that would be in my face or prevent us from going through.

The farrier came out and he showed me these new shoes that a company wanted him to promote:
I put a teaser on Instagram but didn't go for it. They are 'illegal' for dressage competitions (I believe) but they did appeal to my inner 12 year old.....
I also got into the ring and weedwacked the weedes that were starting to encroach. Carmen was enjoying snacking as we went around. We would halt and she would reach out and nibble some grass. To be honest it was amusing but still needed to be sorted.

Interestingly enough the corner that Carmen was giving me trouble on I found blackberry vines with big thorns on them. I wondered if they were grabbing her legs as we went by. Now that they are cleared out she has no issues with that corner.
So it's been a good week so far and I have another week to go. By the time I return to work I will be tanned and fit.
And probably tired.
I will leave you with one last video. Turn on the sound though to get the context.
