glorious weather today - clear and 72-ish
the flower is chickweed, I think - tiny (smaller than my pinky nail)

Aria came back a week or so ago. She and Lady are sharing the front paddock next to Donatello.

mules notes, mmxix-i-iii


Yesterday was cold and rainy all day and well into the night; the ground is super-saturated. It was cool and cloudy when we first started playing but when the sun broke through Cora tore into a sudden gallop and flung herself down for a roll.

mule notes, mmxix-i-i

We just hung out today - it was too cold to do much else (low 40s) - but Cora seemed genuinely upset when it was time for me to go. I was too. It's gonna be a couple days before I go back; we have cold rain on the way tomorrow.
