I’ve been off chore duty for a few days but this morning I’m back to the regular routine. As much as I sometimes drag my feet getting out to the barn, I realize how much I love the rhythm and method of feeding the animals and taking care of things outside.

The girls do a good job, but I still need to touch base with the barn each day and know all is running smoothly.
This morning the girls left chore-duty early in order to go horseback riding and I was left alone to finish up. Just me, the barn and the busy barn swallows. Listen:
