July the 4th

I spent the 4th and 5th of July working at the ranch. Duties included sweeping the pool (in order to finish the plaster surfaces), landscaping the area around the pool. There were also ordinary ranch duties such as watering and taking care of the horses and grounds maintaining. While filling the water troughs in the lower pasture, I always enjoy visiting with the yearlings and foals in the bottom pasture. The older foal (nearly weanling) filly is like my shadow when I am in her pasture. She loves the withers and butt rubs but still prefers I not get close to her ears or legs. With time I will be able to pick both feet up.
