Today is Pie's 6th birthday!!! Here we are on the trail yesterday morning. I have been riding every single day first thing in the morning and then I work on a huge project...
We are having a Kentucky Derby - Pie-Pie's-Birthday - plant a tree seedling picnic today! I can't believe it is finally here and it might be sunny! Hooray!
I got 350 (!) seedlings from the state and I have been preparing our fields with paths and pre-dug holes for the little ones and older guests. I woke up today at 5 am without an alarm. That isn't like me!
My only rule with this project was that I rode every day before I started work on the seedling preparations. Even today, I might sneak in a ride. It took me 44 years to get my priorities right - ride, groom, graze, first - do the rest of life after. It is the only way to be happy and keep sane!
Happy Kentucky Derby day. Love up your ponies. I will have photos of our event and finally get back to reading all the blogs next week!
