I needed to check on an ol friend and her family. So this morning, with a caregiver to stay with mom, I loaded up Dad and took him with me on a little ol 200 mi loop.
When we pulled into LG's place she was just finishing feeding the horses.
She has been feeding hay all summer, as irrigation water is too expensive. It is very dry there, they didn't get nearly as much rain as we did from this last storm. The permanent pastures have all dried up, and their well is barely keeping the houses and horses in water. They are trying to get through the environmental permits to put in a new stock well. What a damn nightmare that has been.
The critters, LG, T, & Pops where all glad to see us, and visit for a spell.
LG carries a pretty darn big load and does it well. (her hubby T is a quad due to a horseback fall some years back.) For all the problems, or possibly because of them, she and her faith are strong.

I like going there, simply because it all reminds me of a life I once lived...
