Well summer is almost done. Here on the Oregon coast we tend to have a late burst of good weather, September is usually one of the most "summery" months for us and this year is no exception, we've had a beautiful couple of weeks and the temp even made it into the 80's (that's a heat wave for us lol) Perfect weather to turn Lily into a bathing beauty! She's not a huge bath fan, but now she's spiffy and all ready for that first coat of winter mud.
I had high hopes for this summer and getting Lily going under saddle. It didn't go exactly according to plan, but we're progressing. We'll go slow but steady this Fall/Winter and I hope to be able to introduce a little trail riding next summer!!
We had a huge blackberry crop this year too and next summer I'm going to try my hand at making some blackberry wine. Blackberry wine and maybe a sunset ride on the beach next summer??? Something to look forward to!
