What More Can I Say?
I simply cannot motivate myself to work a horse in the heat anymore. I think getting older has finally done in my determination.
Then again, I did get kind of distracted yesterday. I started working on the driver safety play script and got on a roll, so that's how I spent the bulk of the day.
I did clean out the run in shed by Chance's stall and I spread my fly predators about. I must admit I have very few stable flies about this year. I am hoping it is not just the weather but my fly control program as well. I use the fly predators, as I said and my horses are on the Solitude IGR feed through fly control.
However, the day was not without excitement. Too much for me, apparently, as I didn't take the time to really focus the camera. However, I was taking the picture through the living room window, so maybe this is the best quality I could get. The rest of the pics are horrible, so this is the best of the lot. Perhaps my visitor will return and I can try again. This was close to dusk. The fox did look young to me, but that was just an impression. I haven't seen the rabbits around the last few days. I wonder if this critter's caught a few. I was certainly getting overrun.
He/she was very alert and definitely in hunting mode. I knew I had a fox about as I'd seen it twice in the arena after dark. It was really fun having it visit close to the house.
