The Phoenix, waiting on the farrier
Hanging out with (let me proudly introduce to you all finally ) Dr Angela Oakley DVM!!!
who Phoenix believes is his own personal doctor should the need arise
After his much needed pedicure , we loaded him up and took him to his new trainer
Does someone want to tell me how this road trip took 4 hours to get there, and a little over 2.5 to get home?? he is not that big a horse!
Anyhow he traveled well , and I am looking forward to seeing him progress
Before the trip, I hosted a little barbecue . All of the Oakley kids (honorary nieces and nephew) were home do the family came over ,also my sister Heather , and BIL Marc . We enjoyed BBQ roast beef, potato salad that I prepared , Deb brought coleslaw, and beans ,and fresh corn.Angela prepared grilled veggies and Kale Heather ,her yummy macaroni salad , and apple cobbler . This all was washed down with Marc's homemade wine !
A wonderful meal , and evening spent with wonderful people .
So that pretty much wrapped up our Victoria day weekend , other than the regular farm work, and a calf , that is at least temporarily needing some extra TLC, and her fire breathing dragon of a momma!
life is pretty good here
Hope all is well with everyone
