my response, was nope , laying low .We live in an area quite close to Lac Ste Anne , and though we don't think about it much most of the year ,it is in fact a resort area. My place is about 1 1/2 miles from the lake , near a summer village and across the lake form the main beach. There are several "summer villages around the lake , some permanent residents and the weekend visitors. I have no problem with most but there are always the bad eggs . My thoughts are best reflected by my statement on Facebook this morning
"Its a holiday weekend here, note to all the folk who rush out from the big city to enjoy the serenity of the country in the campgrounds and lake lots, welcome. Couple of things though; no, my horse pasture, driveway, hay field etc ARE NOT A PARK AND NOT A QUAD TRACK, no, you cannot pet the horsies ,and if you could kindly SLOW DOWN on the gravel roads they, are not a speed way that would be cool.Finally , please be careful with the fireworks ,this is where you relax, but it is where I live and if it burns up... and for heavens sake wear a helmet on the quad , the only thing that would upset me more than you driving on my fields is finding you dead or dying in them !"
With all of the extra traffic and people around ,I don't tend to head out much on long weekends . The highways are crazy, and I am not a big fan of crowds . So I stay home, lay low and spend time with the ponies . Today I brought "the golden boys" in for some handling which is something I have needed to do for some time. They were pretty good, a little hesitant to let me halter them, Comet more than Quinn, which shows what time does, when I halter broke them Comet was easy peasy and Quinn seemed convinced I was killing him! LOL Nothing that exiting today , just a little avoidance and walking away . A little of this every day , and they will be just fine . Tried to get a few pics for ads and such , going to have to get some more bu these are a start
Why blogger has suddenly decided to refuse to rotate pictures I have no idea, but I left this one up anyhow, he looks like such a cute little rogue
Wishing everyone a wonderful SAFE weekend . And to my Canadian friends , HAPPY CANADA DAY
