Mara B and I took a rest day today! After the heavy rain we were left with muddy puddles and humid air. Mara had her grain, some grooming and a little excercise in the indoor arena. I cleaned her brushes while she munched on hay. Always enjoyable to just hang out together.
It was a hot one today, Mara and I walked down to the dairy in the direct sun. We found this hay wagon full of fresh bales waiting to be delivered to storage. Then we hugged the woods resting in some shade, and rode the edges of the field that had recently been cut. We did catch a breeze on the way back, but the temperature was 88 when I left the barn.
Mara B and I had a quiet, calm, peaceful time together this afternoon. I would call it moseying relaxed slow time, we were not in a hurry. The surprise was to see apples already, it seems so early to me. Our stroll was along corn fields and along this cut alfalfa that’s waiting to be raked and turned, it smelled wonderful.
