After doing a lot more blogging than usual lately, real life has finally caught up to me with a vengeance and now I'm back to having to squeeze it in when I can. We had a house showing this morning and have another on Wednesday, a Jeep (my main mode of transport and dog-hauler) that needs to go to the mechanic before its engine falls out since "possible missing and/or busted motor mounts" does not sound promising, a long-overdue chiropractic appointment, an equally long overdue haircut appointment, and the paperwork for another price reduction on our house (and its probable consequences ~ more showings!) later this week.
At least I have this week's photo memes already in the hopper, but I wanted to share a few news and entertainment tidbits before it all spins out of control completely.
We spent Saturday morning moving Mocha to a new home. Though it started out with great promise, the original facility was really having issues and dropping the ball, and his care, feeding and living arrangements had become unsatisfactory. So we found him a new home on a big ranch on BW's route where we think he'll be much happier with more and better feed, more consistent care and supervision, much nicer pastures, and new buddies who are all older geldings like him (several of whom have been boarded there 15-20 years, and all of whom look great!) And since BW is out there at least twice a week, he'll get to check on him regularly.
Here's Mocha in his new temporary paddock, where he's spending a few days getting acquainted with his surroundings and new friends before being turned out into a pasture among the trees with a year-round creek. Mocha is on the far left (wearing his fly mask), exploring his new digs after filling up on hay. The other three geldings will be his new pasture buddies...
