1. We have a late winter storm moving across the Sacramento Valley, the Mother Lode (us) and the Sierras. So, far we have received over an inch of rain and it isn't over yet. The storm is wet and cold; snow above us, thunder and hail in our neck of the woods. Sandy and I decided it was not the best conditions for me to be riding Lucy. We will reschedule my lesson on her after the storm passes.
2. Winston is officially for sale. Here's the link to his ad.
3. I'd like to extend a warm welcome to any new followers; including Skyline Spirit who left a nice comment the other day. It used to be easy to keep track of new followers through Blogger but now I have followers from Blogger in addition to Google and Facebook. I don't know when you all start following so forgive me for not thanking you individually. I do want to thank you all for following the ups and downs of our little ranch.
4. Pistol has settled in well. Flash stands at the edge of the creek running next to the clover pasture fence and stares longingly at her across the driveway. Pistol mostly eats and ignores him, but once in awhile she throws out a girly squeal. The horses are all in the barn today due to the storm. Pistol is on the end with Mufasa next door. He is loving being able to touch noses with her; Flash doesn't allow Mufasa or Jackson to look at her normally, much less touch noses.
5. Brett had to get a new ride-on mower this week. The one we brought up from Aspen Meadows has been slowly falling apart. Its twelve years old and didn't receive the best of care. It was a victim of being a learning experience. The new mower is parked in the barn (I think Brett even covered it with a blankie) and it will have the gas tank drained when not in use. Brett's learned a lot about how to take care of ranch equipment since we first started out.
