Rod Stewart ran into the dry lot where Red was running and playing and Red chased him. It was so funny, and Mom tried to get a picture but it didn't turn out. Well, Rod Stewart flew out of the dry lot in a hurry. Red didn't mean to scare him, he just wanted to play with his new friend.

Then I filled a few open flats (with drainage holes) with organic potting soil and set each inside of a flat with no drainage holes. These flats were seeded with a variety of lettuces and spinach.
A few clay pots were seeded with herbs.
Everything was placed on heating mats and set beneath a grow light.
Each container is labelled...
Now I will mist each container with a generous amount of water daily (maybe twice daily)...and wait. I will post pictures when the begin to germinate.

From the back cover.....
"Amanda Wilkes has her summer completely planned - work at the veterinary hospital, ride at Rough and Ready Stable, and hang out with her best friend Samantha. But when she loses her job to the boss's nephew and Samantha takes a position as a working student in another state, Amanda realizes that this summer is going to be anything but predictable.
Before leaving town, Samantha asks Amanda to promise her two things. The first request is that Amanda takes care of Samantha's new upper level event horse prospect, Indefensible. While a talented and fearless jumper, "Indy" has the reputation of being unpredictable and a danger to his rider. amanda is thrilled to have the chance to work with the horse as she has been in love with him since the first time she saw him. However, she soon learns that her love is not enough to prevent Indy's bad behavior from surfacing.
Samantha's second request is that Amanda be kind to Justin, the pre-vet student who took her position at the veterinary hospital. Having sworn to hate the person who took her job, Amanda is dismayed to find herself drawn to the handsome and charming Justin, and with the encouragement of her friends and family, she begins to develop a relationship with him that goes beyond simple friendship.
As she struggles with her feelings of loneliness in Samantha's absence and the mixed emotions of her first real love interest, Amanda struggles to unravel the source of and cure for Indy's dangerous behavior. She knows that his future as an event horse can only be secured if he becomes a safe, relable mount and she will soon discover that his very life depends upon it."
The price is $12.00 plus shipping.
