At first, this news was terribly depressing but then I decided, well, horses, for me, are way more than riding and therefore, there was plenty we could do together and have fun. Before being able to play hands-on, I am using my time to watch my DVDs and am currently enjoying the Savvy Club Volume 41, "Solving and Extrovert-Introvert Mismatch." It is very interesting and being an extrovert with one extrovert horse and one introvert, the concepts and issues ring true. I do have to say that I don't have a mismatch issue any longer (usually) but, it took time and reflection to figure it out. I am looking forward to my Savvy Club Gold package which should be here any day. I am certain that there will be plenty of material for me to review!
It just so happens that my wonderful local contractor also came this week and is getting my round pen and horsey playground areas put in place as well as Rick's garden so, I have the need (and now time) to make more plans for these areas and the rest of the property plans, I am sure, will also start coming together. Rick and I have been making plans for our fencing needs to and the close we get to things looking more in-line wiht our expectations, the better we feel and the more we fell this new place is truly ours.
Here are a few photos of the excavation. What fun.
This is one of the pieces of equipment in the playground area.
