It was a good day today. Late last night when I went to check on the horses they were both laying down on the fresh bedding. The previous owner said that Rio never laid down as he was too skiddish. I read some advice columns that said it is a sign that the horse is comfortable in their surroundings.
The horses and dog spent some quality time together while I tried out the new snow scoop, like a shovel but you just push, no lifting required. I figured out what was wrong with one exterior light and one interior light. Unpacked the first load of tools into the basement.
Ran out to the local hardware store where I was greeted by some friendly local faces and they filled me in on the best music venues in the area. Picked up some bird feed and sewet cakes, extra gloves and a new hat.
