And today the plumbers came to fix the barn pipes so we have water. Yes! They also repaired a few faucets. They tried to turn the water off at the house but the valve was frozen so they turned the water off at the well and replaced the shut off valve at the house. When they turned the water back on, water shot up in the big pasture. There was a line out there with the faucet broken off. Who knew?! So, they fixed that too. There are water lines to a couple of the pastures so we are very happy campers.
The plumbers left a tall ladder in one of the stalls. Passage immediately climbed up, rung by rung, to the very top and then explored. She was happy camper number two.
Brett told me that Jackson and Mufasa were racing around the pasture, bucking and prancing, this afternoon. Jackson even attempted some airs above ground (picture those war horses in old paintings, off the ground with front and back legs kicking out at the same time). When I refilled their pasture water, Jackson was first to investigate. I think he must have worked up a powerful thirst being Mr. Rambunctious.
|Jackson: Whats with the water shooting out at me? Is it safe?|
|I think I can squeeze my nose under here and get a drink without getting water up my nose.|
|Well water is outta this world. slurp|
Then, of course, Winston had to push his way in and demonstrate the correct way of drinking out of a hose.
