Hope everyone is enjoying the emerging spring. It's beautiful here at the mother ship with wood thrushes and whip-poor-wills calling and flowers everywhere.
Well it looks like our skid steer activity for Saturday will be postponed because of the several inches of rain we've had in the past week. I don't know how much fell at BGAD but at the mothership we've had over 2" with more rain scheduled. Instead of a skid steer we'd need an amphibious vehicle in order to do the work. Sigh. Seems like it's going to take forever to get set up there, an exercise in patience. We do have some things to plant and harness to clean and Peggy wants to bathe the horses as well so we'll have some stuff to do regardless.
On Saturday we will also be meeting with Lorraine Garkovitch about Visioning and Strategic Planning for AFTEC. That's going to be exciting, and probably scary as well. AFTEC is not just a "business" for Mark and I and planning for the future of a business is a bit daunting.
Mark delivered a presentation for the Rotary in Richmond yesterday and made some good contacts. He had a few moments of stress when he couldn't get the connection between the laptop and the Power Point projector set up. I was at a training in Lexington and could only provide emotional support. He was able to get it all coordinated and showed the slide show and accessed the web site to show the Drew and Kylie shows. BTW, the training I attended on Suspected Childhood Apraxia was great.
At the Rotary they discussed the Hoedown for Heroes fund raiser in May- it sounds like an exciting event!
On another note, baby Cinco is not longer a stallion. Linda Grimes, DVM, came out and did her usual stellar job of gelding. Cinco showed no ill effects and is recovering well. She also did Coggins tests and Health checks for Zephyr and Rocky so they are ready to travel to BGAD when we need them.
