It’s going to be a short post today. I took the day off from giving tours today, as Greg and I are moving to a new house this week. Let me tell you, painting is not really all that much fun!
I did get a report from Janet this week, and she says the horses are doing well. She said when the farrier came to trim hooves this week, all the boys behaved nicely, and allowed themselves to be caught. This doesn’t always happen–Special Ring and Pops are notorious for avoiding the farrier. But of course, there was one bad boy this week–Silver Charm ran and bucked around his paddock. He doesn’t have a huge paddock, but he still managed to elude capture for a bit. He had to make a statement, I guess. And he is still showing off for Monday!
We are all looking forward to Lava Man’s arrival in a few more weeks. I hear the plans are progressing for his California good-bye. If any of our fans are in California and attend the Breeder’s Cup–take lots of pictures.
Keeneland’s fall meet opens this coming weekend. My second favorite time of year–after the Spring meet of course! I’ll try to post a report from the races, as well as updates about Lava Man, and any news about the current Old Friends. In the meantime, thanks for stopping by.
