Today is Opening Day for Major League Baseball. My die-hard-Cardinal-fan Mother is very excited! Thought it appropriate to make it our Opening Day, as well… our Opening Day into the Spring Pasture! WhooHoo!!! Cass and Becca have been kept in the back pasture all Winter to allow the front pasture to rest. It’d gotten eaten down pretty bare. For some reason, when given the choice to be wherever they want, horses, cows and goats seem to have always preferred the front pasture. It’s a little smaller than the back but there just seems to be more delicious grasses and weeds.

I had hoped for a bit more excitement from them. They’re Fjords, after all, and those delicious grasses are right here in front of me… why run all the way over there?!

The girls said they'll take care of the mowing.

Can’t believe I forgot this yesterday! The St. Louis Cardinals being in the play-offs makes me happy.

Not so much because I’m a huge fan living far away for so many years now but because my 81 year old Mother is. She began really watching the sport several years ago just to share something with Dad. Unexpectedly she dug it! He’s been gone now going on 4 years and she never misses a game. She can talk stats with the best of ’em. I am happy hearing how happy she is cheering for “her boys”.
