The temperatures were in the high 40's Fahrenheit today and the sun was shining. I could not have asked for a nicer day. The snow is melting quickly and the robins were out.
I had a lovely consultation with new clients in the morning and met another new one later in the day. It is fun and rewarding meeting people and matching their needs with our services. With the variety we offer, sometimes an in-person initial consultation is the best path forward.
I then enjoyed undemanding time with all of the horses and worked with my Arabian Whiskey on being mentally aware, calm, and responsive (despite being away from the herd), trimmed his hooves, and groomed him while watching/listening to a Parelli DVD on safety. I really love Whiskey. As an extreme right-brained introvert, I have to use a lot of communication and regulated energy exchange to engage with him in a manner that he can be responsive to rather than catatonic or explosive. He is a very special and unique horse who takes patience and love.
I am now enjoying quiet time on the couch with the dogs. Later, a Beachbody workout and dinner. Rick is making a lovely quiche with our farm fresh eggs, with a side of roasted asparagus and salad.
Life on the farm is magical.
