At Least I Did Something Productive
I weed whacked the front bank today. It wasn't quite the task it's been in the past as the road salt and snow plow cuts seems to have killed a lot of the grass and weeds that grow up there. Good and bad consequences of a miserable winter, I fear.
Then I trimmed around the trees in front and left it at that. Using the weed whacker makes my arms go numb after a while. I had about enough energy to clean some of Toby's stall, although I still have more to do as it needs to be stripped.
Fed the Boys with the intent of going back out to lunge when I suddenly remembered that it was Kentucky Derby Day!! This year's race was wide open, with no superstars in the line up. That kind of makes it fun because you never quite know what could happen.
I do had to admit that Wild Kingdom won impressively, pulling away from the field at the end. He has very few races under him, so he was a bit of a surprise. But he did look good.
Not likely that he will win the Triple Crown, but you never know. Let's just say that when the Preakness rolls around there will be at least one horse everyone will be rooting for!!
