55 degrees this morning! It will feel nice when we first head down to the barn, which will be a welcome relief from the past few days. It's not going to last though, the heat will be back later today with scorching temps on the way for the weekend. On a good note, the hay dries fast in this weather. Rob dropped some hay on Saturday, which we got in yesterday. He dropped the rest of our fields yesterday, so with luck we will get all of that in today. There is nothing like the feeling of having our hay loft full! Once ours is in we'll move on to Maribelle's to get her hay done.
Had a very productive Mounted Shooting practice yesterday. Cardillo was perfect, even ponied one horse from him for a bit. Calif was really good too, so I was quite pleased with my boys. Jim and Jose had a great run of it too, Jim shot quite a few rounds off of Jose. We are pretty well set up for our practice at Malibu on Tuesday.
We have a full barn, lots of training horses in, keeping all of us super busy. The variety we have in is fantastic, QH's, Paso's, Tenn Walkers. Keeps us on our toes. It's a bit late in the season, but we did get our Capitan mare covered yesterday. JQ took a bit of coaxing to get it right, but finally he figured things out and bred the mare. Silly Stallion! This is a coveted crossing of pedigrees and we are really looking forward to this foal.
