After a flurry of activity this spring (clinics, lessons, a show), things have been quiet.

This was deliberate based on finances. With the vet bill, saving for a new saddle and just trying to be fiscally responsible with my decreased income from retirement, I decided to not do too many things this summer.
It is impossible to be bored though when you own a property with horses. It's been pretty much raining since early June. We had a torrential rainstorm about 2 weeks ago in which 3 months of rain fell in 12 hours. It was horrible and a few people died being swept away when rivers burst their banks. We actually fared well so I am grateful.

Quaid is probably wondering how he's going to come out

|this is a daybed that usually has water with the spring runoff|
