checking in

Trigger loves the new truck
So, I traded my new corvette in for a GMC yukon.... I was thinking about it.. and we need something big... I know like the semi and the 3500 wasn't big enough.. but, Zeus gets crammed in the back with Trigger and Rollo and Maya rides up front... everyone was just cramped...
I was a little sad.. and almost cried when I was handing over the key-pod to the guy at the dealership... but, now that I have been driving it... I'm really glad I did it...
My 75 should be out of the shop soon... her engine will be bad ass and rebuilt and I'll still love her more than the C6..

We had a HUGE thing happen here in our little town.. we got ourselves a Dunkin Donuts....
it opened up yesterday.. I was all kinds of geeked out over iced coffee yesterday.... so bad that I couldn't go to sleep last night..

This has been a crazy week... Just busy... trying to get all my assignments done for my breeding class.. Today I've recruited my dad to help me finish the tack room in my barn.. and make it into a breeding office... so I'm excited about that.... then I got some high school help to help me finish the inside facing of it... i'm still waiting for the rough cut timber for the stall dividers.. but. I have three stalls that are ready for use...
Zeus and Bells
I'm pretty ready for a vacation.... even a weekend away from people and not having to drive.. I really miss my mornings That I go in late to work..
I haven't even been working out in the mornings.. all I've done for working out is riding horses... Not that, that is a bad thing...
I had to disc up the arena the other day.. it was supposed to rain.. but that never happened..
I tried to hook the pulverizer back onto the tractor but that was posing a big feat so I decided not to try to kill myself lifting that up.. I'll wait for help...
Rollo
Then Sunday I got to go on a LONG bike ride.. it was awesome... I was all rusty at first, when I puled out of the driveway headed towards the gas station.. then I was alright buy the time I pulled out of there... but, the darn battery was dead on the joker... and had to hook it up to the dually for like 10 minutes before it would crank...  and yes that was the fist time I have taken it out since the winter came...
I brought up the last 5 mares that are bred... those are the last group of brood mares we bought from Texas.... I put them up at the house... that way I can keep an eye out on them and maybe help/be there/moral support when they have babies... this has been a horrible birthing year.. and I'm ready for it all to end and start over new next year...
well which has really already started because I put the stallion out with the mares at the beginning of the month.  I think they are a better herd when he is around.. he keeps them all in a tight ship.. that is about all around here...

Not much going on.. I put the stallion out to breed this weekend :)
here are some pictures from that.. I'm really proud of this guy... he's my baby.... I'm so proud of the horse he has become and the level head he has on his shoulders..
