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.
"I REALLY REALLY need a SNACK"
"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.
"Jakes by the Lake" for something tasty to eat!
