Sunday, November 27, 2022 – The Exodus

Hey Babe,
What a day! Though I did wake up once and hear a generator running, I was in no mood to get up and track it down, simply reminding myself that if it’s one of the horse folks, they’ll all be gone by the end of the day, and if it’s not, then not my job, so just chill. Did have a good night sleep otherwise. Started out running around on the tractor reminding people that both stalls and paddocks needed to be cleaned, and I am delighted to report that with only a few exceptions, ALL of the paddocks were clean (which historically is what hasn’t been cleaned before!), and most of the stalls were, too, though there were a few notable exceptions, mostly the folks that were booted out of here last night. Not surprising, they were the type of folks who don’t think the rules apply to them, and this was just another bit of evidence to that attitude, not taking responsibility for the messes they or their horses make. Carol made our group a lovely blueberry pancake breakfast, and after that, I mostly just kept an eye on things as folks left. Suddenly and blessedly very quiet out here now! Yay! Considering so much of my effort this summer was leading up to this weekend, the unofficial start of the riding season here in Florida, then I’d have to say it went magnificently well. Lots of compliments on the trail signage, even from folks that know the trails really well, which was very nice. Also managed to get a load of laundry in, so fresh sheets tonight. I’m ready to crash! Definitely going to lay in for a bit tomorrow, and try to keep my activity level down, though I had hoped to ride, but I may need to recover first. We’ll see in the morning. Chuckwagon Dennis let me have some leftovers so I don’t have to worry about cooking for a while, thank goodness! The last group left just after 4:30, so feeding was easy, and I was able to open up the back paddocks for my guys again, I’m sure they’ll be happy about that! I gave them hay anyway, since most of the grass will have been chewed down, but everything should be back to normal tomorrow. Settled down for the evening, in our usual routine, yay! Just need my shower and bed, hoping for a good night sleep, and back to normal tomorrow. Good night, sweetie! Love you!
