What a weekend. It did not exactly turn out the way it was supposed to. Saturday was a beautiful day. Pat and I got on the bike and took off. Alas we did not get far. We turned off the main road to ride through the country and shortly thereafter it died. No lights, no radio, no horn, Nada nothing. The generator that we paid $250 just to have it rebuilt($800 for a new part and it is unavailable) has died. Pat is rather upset. So am I. A friend brought us a battery to get the bike home with. Lucky it worked. I did not really want to push this bike up on a trailer! So, no bike for who knows how long.
Sunday fared a little better. We saddled up the horses and headed down the driveway. Crystal acted like she has never been on a road or crossed a bridge. Precious had to lead her across the bridge. Precious gave me a wonderful ride. She started racking up the hill and man o man that was smooth. I love it when she gives me a good rack. Everything went pretty smooth until a car came around a curve. Dang that was a quiet car. No sound until it was seen. Nothing really happened. Precious just stopped cold and was bunched up like she was going to bolt. She relaxed immediately when she saw nothing was gonna happen. Brook had seen us coming up the road and was jumping up and down. She was excited. We rode on up to the kids house and Brook got on Precious. Pat and she went out into the field to ride. Everything was going real good until Pat decided to bring Crystal across a low fence. She stepped over the fence with her front feet and then dragged her rear foot over the wire. When she touched the wire she panicked. All hell broke loose then. She backed up and then got tangled and started bucking. I saw white hair go flying through the air. Next thing I know Brook is being dumped on the ground. Precious bolted. Brook's feet were not in the stirrups because she was in my saddle. Poor thing was scared to death. I have no idea if Pat was bucked off or if he got off. I know he was the first to reach Brook! After we caught the horses, which was not hard to do after they quit running, we road back up to the house. brook came right over and got back on Precious. She knew that Precious did not dump her on purpose. Poor baby. She is hurting. She landed on her hip. She is walking okay, just bruised up pretty good. She has Tae Kwon Do today so maybe that will help work out the soreness in her hip. We did not take her for x-rays because she was moving pretty good. I just hope it was the right decision to make...
I have pictures of the babies. I have misplaced my camera cord to download the pictures. This is not good. It has a special end on it that fits the camera.
I need to get busy. I still need to clean up my small garden. I have plants for it that need placing soon. Brussels sprouts and broccoli are ready to go in. They can handle the cooler temperatures. Supposed to be in the 70's again to day then winter is supposed to come back for a few days. I need to check my peach trees. Maybe this will be the year that they survive and give me peaches!
Ok I am out of here. The dryer just finished and the washer is full.
