Once Serenity was covered she was let back out in the field with the rest of the mares. Eliza was brought out and grained. Ribbon was still in and showing but I decided to wait until later today for her. I made it back inside to cook Mark's breakfast then headed back out to fill water tanks and grain the weanlings. At 9:00 am Serenity was brought inside and groomed then put in the paddock next to Evan's for easy access. The people finally did arrive around 11:00 am, worked with Serenity a bit then loaded and took her home. She won't be marked sold though until after 30 days, we want to make sure she is a good fit for them.
As soon as they left, Jewel and her filly were loaded into the stock trailer and off I went to Middle Grove to drop them off and pick up Indy and her filly so we can get a video and updated pictures for the website as her filly is now for sale and I needed to pick up Oksana as she is due in a month and Roxanne for an ultrasound. The ground was dry making it possible for me to drive the truck and trailer all the way back and up the hill where the herd was spread out grazing. They saw the truck and trailer and came running. About the time I stopped the truck I was surrounded by beautiful horses.
Below is Soul and her Valiant filly.
In the front is Rosaleigh behind her is Sheena and Ayanna and behind them is Oksana, Missy and one other coming over the hillside.
Below is Hadassah.
Oksana is left, then Missy in front of a mare that I can't see well enough to name.
After leaving mom's there was just about 15 minutes to get Eliza fed and Ribbon covered by Valiant. That went like clock work. Valiant just does his job with no drama.
Mark and I left to meet Rhoda and Lee at Red Robin. They were bringing us Israel for the night and we were going to eat there but at 4:45 am there was already a 45 minute wait. Instead we walked over to Panda Express.
Emily made it home from Ohio with the truck and trailer. Israel and I took the golf cart up to the apartment to visit with her about the trip. Israel had fun playing with Jessica's pug puppy. Israel is now ready to head to bed.
