Horses and Hay

Early this morning my "dear" ask me to do a simple errand for him as he would be busy until after supper. My day was pretty much open so I agreed. Two hours later I was hauling a huge trailer and headed down a country road to pick up one hundred bales of hay. We rent stables not far from home for our two horses, Slayer and Miz Parker. I had no idea we were out of hay as the last cuttings have been done and everyone who owns horses KNOW you have your hay in your tack room before the end of August. That's 007, grade A hay. Three big cowboy type guys put the hay on the trailer and secured it with rope so I could return home. Let's see... I left around 9:00 am and now it's almost 6:00 pm. Wasn't exactly what I planned to spend the WHOLE day doing, but I guess it could have been worse. I did discover a very "different" antique shop on the back roads that I traveled. I actually bought something there. I felt I had to since I had been taking photo's from across the street. If these photo's prove nothing else, it proves I'm a southern girl who proudly lives in the bible belt. Would you not agree?

I just moved to Colorado after living most of my life in the south (although many would say 'Florida ain't the south')

Actually, I lived half of the time in Miami(which not only isn't the south-it's more like a foreign country) and small towns in Central Florida which were definitely part of the south culturally.

I definiely miss the south. I've travelled all over America, and there is no place with nicer people than the Bible Belt.

I put a link to your blog on my blog.

I do like the pics. The same sex marriage sign, was that on a church? Are the two horses yours? They are beautiful.

I tried to put instructions in this comment box on how to insert a link, but blogger won't let me put html in this comment box, so I put a link on my server:

Nice looking horses.

I had a Morgan~Thoroughbred gelding and a quarterhorse mare, although she was still a filly and not even green-broke when I split up with my ex.

I miss riding them.

I rode a morgan once, bounced me around so bad I was sore for a week. My favorite is a Walker, but got a great buy on these to paints.

He had a rough trot, but once you got him into a canter is he was like the wind...

I LOVE finding new antique shops. Especially in the south in small towns. You can find the coolest things in them sometimes!

you gotta take the back roads to find the really good antique shops, imho.

I miss the south. The real south.
