Current River

WE FINALLY heard from the group camping at Current River
 Above Jessica is holding a prize catch of a rainbow trout and below Karin is fishing for their breakfast. 
Looks like they are surviving on fish. Diane was helping Mike on Joan's mower before the walk. We were all admiring her muscles until she let go and walked away.
The mower was balanced perfectly. That mower has served the area well, dad bought it years ago but now is not working and Joan needs to find out if it is worth fixing.
Since Rosaleigh was covered yesterday this morning was Indy's turn. She is still in and stood well. Sure hoping one of these mares goes out soon, I think Jewel is coming in too and Jenis is due to come in next week. All of these mares are for Evan as Jewel and Indy are Valiant's half sisters and Jenis is Valiant's mother.
Eliza was just taken into the stall for her grain then turned out to graze in the big field while we walked. Joan, Diane and Ruth were more than willing to help get her and her colt back inside the pasture so I could take off for the Berean office. 
The Bibles still haven't come in so David S, Joan and Ruth were all told not to come. To read about our easy morning click HERE
As soon as Emily got back from her final we loaded up Zalena and her filly Adara for a trip out to Middle Grove. We had two reasons for going. Adara's abscess is now healed so these 2 could go out and we needed to pull hair from Sheena's colt for the registration papers that are going out tomorrow.
The mud had dried up at Middle Grove so we were able to drive in and up the hill to find the herd. They were no where in sight. We let Zalena out, she called to them and they answered. Zalena and Adara took off to meet them.

 Above the mares are waiting for Zalena and below Emily is petting April, Lola's filly by Valiant. 

 Above Lily had just had a good roll and was getting up while her daughter Joanna was watching. Below the horses discovered the truck and trailer and quickly surrounded it. If the trailer doors would have been left open they would have all tried to push their way inside. They are just so curious about that trailer. 
 I got in the truck and started honking the horn to get them out of the way but that didn't seem to work so Emily had to go shoo them off.
 They took off for the big puddles and decided to cool of. Below is Roxanne enjoying a good roll in the puddle.
When we got home Emily worked on weed whacking and mowing while I did laundry. Eliza and Marika were turned out together for the first time. Marika's colt has never been with another foal since his mom was on a month of stall rest. He wasn't sure about Eliza's colt and came running back to Emily.
Later they were put in with the other mares. Marika is so smart she went across the pond and stood under a shade tree taking Eliza with her. This evening after supper Mark and I went to Lowes for a tool.
