New Beginnings...

mean endings for some things and I haven't decided whether it is easier to take a month to move or to "JUST DO IT!"
I decided to take a month to move since I am on call 2 of the week ends anyway and can't be roaming the lake side and forests on my "pony."

Last week I did pay a visit to Nevel and he was impatient with the grooming-he simply wanted to eat.  He is so round now from the irrigated pasture.  The grass quality is poor, but he seems to thrive on it.
 "Why is that scrawny cat over there?"
I haven't been doing much riding.  The horse trailer gets packed up during the week and then on the weekends I drive it 13 miles to my new abode in the city to un-load it.
One thing is certain, I am getting plenty of practice pulling the trailer in traffic and on narrow streets.
Maybe by late fall I will be hauling mr. Fats around...just depends on his hind hoof that he injured almost a year ago.  That needs pictures and future blogging!
I've been selling stuff on ebay and craigslist to downsize what I have to move...
So there goes my Alleghany Mountain Saddle, my Tucker Cheyenne and an Aussie saddle...
I was told that the Aussie would never sell-it did-on ebay and the new owner LOVES it!
Other items sold were new boots 
and old boots
and two "like new" side-pull halter bridles that I had for two half lingers that I owned 8 years ago...
yep...time to un-load that stuff!  Thank you EBAY!

I needed a break from all of the excitement of packing and selling sentimental things.
So we went to Tahoe.  I had never been in the 5 years that I have lived less than 2 hours away.
It was worth it...even the 15 mile bike ride along the Truckee River @ 6000 ft + elevation.
I recommend:
"Jakes by the Lake" for something tasty to eat!
