But I Opted Out Again
I may yet decide to go out to lunge a horse or two as there is a breeze and it actually feels kind of nice.
My knee is a bit better, though, so that's good. If I put the braces on, I might be OK for some exercise. I didn't try to swim, though, as it still hurts. Maybe tomorrow.
More pictures for your entertainment in the meantime:
Tucker was in the barn, behind a barrier, so he couldn't get closer. This is the face that got Chance all upset the first time the Boys wore their fly masks. Personally, I think he's kind of cute.
And for the grand finale:
I think this is the second brood of barn swallows this year. There are at least two nests with babies and this one maybe has four. The little clever critters ducked into the nest when I appeared. I used the zoom from the door of the tack room so I really wasn't threatening them, but they already have the instinct to hide. My barn has at least a half dozen nests at this point. While they do make a mess below they also eat a lot of bugs, so they are welcome. And I do adore being scolded by Mama and Papa when I go in to feed.
