Some weekends are packed so full with activity,
that they actually feel like a week!
This past weekend was busy, busy, busy.
We spent a good part of Saturday finishing up Fall Cleanup
and battening down the hatches in preparation for a major storm.
We had a visit from Tyler on Saturday.
Grampie took him on a slow and safe 4 wheeler ride....putt, putt, putt to the barn.
Upon arrival at the barn,
we witnessed 5 equines making a hasty escape.
(Someone had forgotten to latch a gate, and they shrewdly seized the opportunity!)
Up to our hay field they galloped, bucking with glee.
And there, with the help of our friends Jim and Kathy,
we rounded them up with promises of tasty grain.
Back home on lead ropes,
with Scarlet in tow.
She is never one to acquiesce to the placement of a halter
(at least not when she is in the middle of an adventure such as this).
So, she simply followed the rest of us back to the barn.
We captured the Littles, by chasing them into an open pasture.
We are right in the path of Hurricane Sandy,
and as she meets an arctic storm,
we will have much rain and high winds over the next few days.
Schools here are closed, as well as some businesses.
If our blog is missing any day this week, it will be due to a power outage.
To those of you living in coastal areas and near water, we wish
you safety. You will be in our hearts over the next few days!
