So in hopes of an average amount of rainfall this year we made the decision to reseed one of the pastures and the front yard. Keep in mind that the total size of the property is 3.5 acres, so we are dealing with less than that for actual pasture.
(I did not take any pictures of the front yard because it is still a sand pit)
Moving on to pasture # 2

"Nom nom nom"Danny is the head of the yard crew! Actually I mowed this yard a few weeks ago, and have not watered it one bit. It also gets fed by the swamp, and I swear the grass is at least 6-8 inches long.
Yesterday Sassy and Killian got to be the yard crew for a few hours. Poor Smarty is convinced that the horses are going to eat him so he remains on the deck with a worried look on his face, as long as there are in there. I should have gotten a picture of that as well I guess.
In Arizona we will only have one pasture but it will have irrigation so I think I can take my new routine and implement it there as well. I think grazing is super important for mental health (more that physical) so although they won't always be grazing, if they all get some time on the pasture it will be like therapy.
Tonight we get back into training mode. I am hoping to get to ride tonight and tomorrow, then Thursday will be about getting the motor home ready. Friday night we will head down to Douglas and I will stay there all weekend. TC says he will come home and feed the critters but go back to
I see that the Black Forest Fire is finally dying down and some folks who still have homes are being permitted to return to them. Then there are the over 500 who have no home to return too. What a terrible loss for those families. It must be so hard. I was happy to read that all the bloggers I know in that area, so far have come through without incident, but still pray for those who have lost. May God give them strength and guidance through these troubled times. I have never had to deal with something like that myself, but I suspect that if I take the fear I felt when we had the little wild fire we had by our home last year (put out in a few hours by crews and neighbors) and multiply it by about 1000, I can get a good idea.
