    Buckly was away at training for a couple of weeks and Dapper Dan stayed with my sister while we were out of town. Everyone is back home now and getting back into the routine. Dapper Dan is up to his usual self, dragging things out of the barn and seeing if they will squash if he steps on them.

    YUM! I'm copying your zuke recipe!!! Tonight I did a "cheater meal"....because it's using pre-made food......... Baked chicken, stuffing and gravy --- Make the boxed stuffing (aka Stove Top). Trim your chicken breasts (I cut them in half) and put them in a greased baking pan. Cover the chicken with the stuffing. Mix a jar of chicken gravy with a little bit of water.......just me.....it's too thick to my liking........ Pour the gravy over the stuffing and chicken and pop into the oven. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Serve with cranberry sauce if desired....... Thanks for that Zucchini recipe! And more power to you for making the plum chutney......Wow.

    The weather cleared up so we took Candace and new baby Perry out to the round pen for the day. Lucky for me my grandfather built a solid bottom round pen 25 years ago. He would be pretty happy to know that after 13 years of no foals there was a new baby born in his barn. Anyway... here they are enjoying the sun. I also took a video of Perry running full speed around the round pen bucking and kicking as only a 2 day old colt can. Kicking up his heels! If you look really closely in this picture you can see the skinny white lightening bolt on his butt. He almost ended up with a Harry Potter name. That's what happens when your owner is a nerd.

    New Orleans was one of my favorite places I got to travel too last month. The swamp was really lovely and according to the guide most of it had grown back. I did stuffed Zucchinis last night . When I grow them in summer here , we live off this recipe In a bowl , Finely dice Ham, sundried tomatos, celery, onion ( any other meat works well, even left overs) Dried herbs, fresh basil , Oregano , Parsley. Crumbed fetta. Mix well !! Scoop out the zucchini so Its like a hollow boat and fill with the mixture. Top with grated cheese of your choice (this will stop the mixture from burning ) Cook on low for about 1/2 an hour - 45 mins MiniV I love chutneys and mustards I had heaps of Blood plums last year , so I made a Plum chutney

    Two more recipes that are NOT crock pot.........but easy and quick........These are the last two....... MELT IN YOUR MOUTH CHICKEN 4 to 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I cut them in half and butterfly them) 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 1 cup plain yogurt, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 1/2 tsp seasoning salt, 1/2 tsp pepper. Mix all together in a bowl. Place chicken in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Spread the mixture over the chicken. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Serve the sauce and chicken over rice. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ PARMESAN BAKED PORK CHOPS 4+ Boneless Pork Chops 1 Tablespoon olive oil per chop, 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs, 1 tsp. pepper, 1 tsp.. garlic powder. On a plate combine the dry ingredients. Rub the chops with olive oil and coat each one with the cheese mixture. Press the mixture into the meat to make sure they are well covered. Line a baking pan with tin foil and spray with cooking spray. Place pork chops in the pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes. (I serve this with a choice of gourmet mustards and chutney as dips.) The foil is important. I didn't do it once and the chops weren't as moist.

    Well that certainly stinks about the builder šŸ˜ . But the community sounds nice. Can you use another builder? Maybe this builder is on an extended 4th of July holiday? Does the community have a barn that everyone shares or does each individual property have their own barn? It would be fun to plan building.barn just the way you want it. Even if it is a pasture and run in sheds, it would be great to have a set up that was custom to how you need to use it. I have a wish list ā˜ŗ but I don't know if I will ever get to it. Fingers crossed that the builder reappears. UhOh, I just had a thought, he hasn't started building yet has he and left half way done????

    You all have been busier than me. It has been so hot here I have been completely unmotivated. I did get Peanut out this evening though. 20 minutes of ground driving, we both needed to stretch our legs.

    I think he would do well in halter; I'm sure he would love to live at your place! He stands nicely and does enjoy learning new things. I might try him on Equisite. But he is fine for now; he can relax and enjoy the pasture for a while. I don't know anything about halter so I can't teach him that.

    Depending on the region he'd be called a chestnut or a sorrel with a flaxen mane/tail, and star and strip on his cute face. Technically he is a solid color. The white on his lower feet is likely his baby coat, but time will tell if he has socks.

    15 minutes ground droving yesterday and 40 minutes hitched today, both with Peanut. Thanks MC šŸ˜ƒ Peggy the team looks great. I still can't figure out how holdbacks work with a pair. I tried to sort it out from your picture but can't. I think it must be one of those things you have to "do" in order to get the idea!

    Woohoo! Today I had the time and the helpers to take the boys out as a pair with my new team pole for my Mullet buggy. It took a little time to get everything adjusted, but the boys stepped off smartly and drove really well together. Iā€™m one really proud mom! Sundance Kid and Butch Cassidy 55 mins

    Peanut and I went for a quick drive, 20 minutes or so, probably longer, but 20 will do. It was absolutely beautiful today, 78 slightly breezy and no bugs. Just perfect.

    Thought I'd post some updated pictures of Perry. He's almost as tall as his momma now. He's eating mostly hay and grain and only nursing a little in the morning and late evening before he beds down. Weaning this one is going to be easy. He's getting more curious and more friendly but he's still a very independent little guy. Cuddly is more fun at first but independent makes for a good driving horse
