The whirlwind summer continues (see last post) but I am able to ride most mornings. Hooray! The horses have been wonderful. Pie and Sovey go bareback and on the buckle happily. Foggy is still excited to go out as far as he can go, and he is now dropping his head and relaxing on our rides.
Brian and I ran the Harrisburg Mile on July 20. During the run, I kept thinking of Foggy racing down the homestretch with the announcer saying, "Found in the Fog - 40 to 1 - Hello!" I was very happy with my 7:08 time (my over 40 PR) and Brian broke the tape again and won his age group. Maizie qualified for sectionals in her Junior Team Tennis so we will be heading off to Princeton for her to play there in a week. I will miss the boys terribly.
Grooming them in the barn in the hot afternoons has brought me such peace with all the scurrying around we do. Horses are the very best way to unwind and stay balanced.
Last night it rained buckets after a few hot, dusty weeks. I can't wait to see the three mud pies waiting for me this morning!
