|Cindy P's "street"|
It was raining, windy, grey, and utterly ugly but we had a wonderful and warm welcome by our dear friends Cindy P, Walter and their daughter Geneva. They have a sweet little home nestled on wooded acreage bordered by one of Lexington's famous stone walls.
They've provided us with a full hookup spot right next to their garage, Beluga likes it here.
Lewis likes it here too. Two of his favorite people live here and he hasn't seen them in a long time. He's known them since he was a little baby and Geneva used to be his babysitter.
They have two Miniature Horses and one Dartmoor Pony here. Tinker, Hoopla and Tristan. I don't have a picture of Hoopla because he was in "time out" for chasing Tristan around......

I must tell you that these pictures don't really show how good looking Tinker and Tristan really are. They both were still quite out of it as a result of a calming draught administered by the vet in order to have their teeth floated and annual shots given. No one ever really likes the dentist.....
Lewis is very interested in them. He thinks they smell, well.....different. And their house smells different and it has different things in it.
It has a big hill of dry grass piled in the corner, he thinks it's fun to climb up on it. I told him it was called hay and that Cindy P feeds it to the horses. He still thinks its fun to climb on.

He tries to help them with the farm chores, but really just wants to play with them and get pets. They're patient with him.

We've been enjoying second cup and happy hour with Cindy and Geneva. Walter is still working so we have to wait until he comes home for dinner to see him.

Today all of us (sans dogs) went to one of their friend's homes for a Derby Party. The Kentucky Derby is a very big thing here and the 10 of us ate and drank and watched the horses run. There may or may not have been a small, friendly bet placed. Walter may or may not have won it.
As usual, I took no pictures of people, only of our host's barn and horses. You know me by now.

We have more pleasant things planned for the rest of our time here so stay tuned.
