I have just spent 2 hours with the farrier, catching, trimming, and deworming each of the five horses on the place (Poppy, Reyes and En Pointe are visiting elsewhere, which is to say, running up board bills). I haven't showered or eaten anything yet, my throat is threatening another viral infection, the mares succeeded in emptying and knocking over(!) their water tank (which needs to be replaced, as it leaks), and I have two weeks of laundry to cope with.
But the mares are so beautiful I can hardly stand it, and I slept in MY OWN BED last night.
It's great to be home.
