Weekend Coffee Share; End Of April

Welcome, welcome, can I get you a cup of coffee or tea? I have had a fairly uneventful week this last week mostly working and doing all the things I do at the stables each morning. I have been enjoying our cool weather this April and it really has been unusually cool. There was a memory that popped up and the photo’s that came up were from last year when I planted my container’s with some plants and tomatoes and it was 100F (38C) ~ Wow, this same time last year was really HOT! We have been in the 60’s (15C) almost this whole last week and have only seen a few days in the 80’s (27C) the whole month of April. I am super duper happy with the coolness and the only thing that would be really nice is if we had some rain!

I thought I would look ahead at the weather and it will be really nice until the end of the week. April 29th and 30th will be a high of 95F (35C) and then it will cool a bit next weekend. I will enjoy each and every day and I should really go buy those tomato plants I wanted to grow. I have problems watering them consistently but maybe with my new hours which are more regular than my old hours at my old job I can be more consistent. It certainly can’t hurt to try!

Sorry, I seem to be only talking about the weather as it seems to be on my mind. As I think about the weather, I am thinking about how nice it is to ride and speaking of riding I wanted to share that after many months my bestie girlfriend has found and purchased a new trail horse. (Pretty good segue, don’t you think?) πŸ˜€ Haha, I hate to just change the subject but I really wanted to share this news. He is a Palomino registered quarter horse gelding and is super sweet. He has been great on our trail rides and I will be taking more photos I am sure as we trail ride together often.

We have only gone out this last week and he is very relaxed and doesn’t worry about a thing. He was bred and born in North Dakota, I thought that was interesting and my girlfriend and I don’t know a lot about breeding but have had others who have said he has good bloodlines. The vet said he is super nice and I am so happy for my girlfriend so we can continue to enjoy trail riding together. She still has her horse Gracie who turns 29 years old this year. She is completely retired and is just enjoying life at the barn.

I am so incredibly happy my bestie girlfriend found her beautiful trail horse, Roscoe. This is not his registered name but the name he was given by his previous owners. The serendipity of his name is when my girlfriend and I were young and riding together (yes, we are grade school friends and were riding buddies then too!) she owned a horse named Roscoe! How fitting of a name for her as it brings back such wonderful memories and it feels like we are young again. As we age and grow old together it is so wonderful we can share our horses and our love for riding. We are truly blessed!

Thank you for visiting my coffee share this weekend. I have so much fun sharing and I have to thank Natalie for hosting and if you want to read her blog click here! She has a wonderful blog and it is so fun to catch up with her each weekend! Here is the link to even more weekend coffee shares which I encourage you to check out. I hope you all have a fabulous week ahead!

  1. It is too early for 100 degree weather! lol, one thing I like about the northeast is that I am not into the heat, so… Glad your bestie got a new trail horse, and very cool that it shares a name with a horse from her childhood.

    1. I agree, it’s too early for heat. I can’t believe how hot it can get here but am glad it’s been a very cool Spring so far. I sometimes wish I could live in the northeast to experience all the seasons. πŸ˜‰ Yes, Roscoe is a sweet horse. Such a funny coincidence!!

  2. I do not know a lot about horses and I have only ridden a handful of time (loved it). Anyway, I thought I would share that a friend of mine bought a new horse last fall and it just had a baby. She shared some video on Facebook and that cute little horse is so clumsy on its long legs, haha. Very cute. I am sad to say that she lives in a different province then I do because I would love to interact with mommy and baby horse. Great coffee post, thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks so much for visiting and baby horses are sooooo ADORABLE! They are clumsy and fun and I agree, too bad you didn’t live closely to interact with them. Thank you for sharing, and I’m so happy you enjoyed having coffee with me today! ❀️

  3. Ohhh, those horses are beautiful! Living in horse country (Kentucky, USA) as I do, I get plenty of opportunity to see them. Not ride, just see. I haven’t ridden since I lived on a horse farm (one of many foster homes) and had a beautiful appaloosa mare. Her name was rain… and she loved the stuff! I rode bareback most of the time, except when the “social worker” was due, then I had to use a saddle lest she think the family wasn’t taking proper care for my safety. I hated the saddle. I had to use a western as my knee and hip could not tolerate the “english” saddle and style. There are times when I really miss living there and wish I still was. It was one of the “best” of the foster homes.

    1. Hi Bear,
      One of my best friends just moved to Liberty, Kentucky just last year and bought horse property there but she doesn’t own any horses. The neighbors do and she’s agreed to let them pasture on some of her land. She shares photos often on Facebook, Kentucky is soooo BEAUTIFUL!
      What a wonderful place to live and my bestie girlfriend here with the new palomino is like you and prefers bareback, only she has a bareback pad she uses when riding. She says for the same reason, hurts her hips… I get it and ride bareback sometimes too. But I do prefer my western saddle. That would be my favorite foster homes for me as well! The appaloosa mare sounds beautiful! Love her name, Rain!

      1. I used a small folded Pendleton wool blanket when I rode…. When I remembered to that is. Rain was a beauty, and just the right size for me. I threw a royal fit to end all fits when they remanded me back to that thing that called herself my mom. Still angers me just thinking about it. I really felt and was treated as family in that home. Yeah, I worked hard milking 250 head of cattle every more and night, but Pop paid me well for work and I got to do things like 4H and other clubs that I never had at home. Kept in touch with that fam until Mother and Pop passed away…used to go out on weekends as often as I could get mom to let me.

      2. Oh what a WONDERFUL farm or ranch. To be able to milk all those cows (but that is a lot of work) and do 4H, ride Rain the BEAUTIFUL appaloosa, and more! What wonderful memories! Thank you so much for sharing them with me!!!! ❀️

    1. Thank you Anne! He really is beautiful and I agree, not a common color for thoroughbreds or the horses I grew up with. He is a very light palomino, and I’m wondering if he’ll stay this shade or darken in winter. He has the sweetest disposition, and I’m so happy for my girlfriend! πŸ˜€

  4. Diana, Thank you for sharing photo of your friend’s new and handsome horse. What a coincidence that his name is Roscoe. No Chloe can show Roscoe the ropes πŸ™‚ So wonderful that you and your bestie continue to do horse riding together. Have a great week! #WeekendCoffeeShare

    1. Thank you Natalie! Chloe really likes Roscoe too, just after a couple of rides together. Such a coincidence with his name. Thanks so much for hosting #weekendcoffeeshare – have a wonderful week! ❀️

  5. Awesome share ya weather nutter cowgal. How great would it be to have a little rain at night & then beautiful sunny days like your having, I don’t think that’s too much to ask for really, lol. What a glorious new pony pony friend you & your bestie have, just adorable, sweetest eyes, oh what fun too be had. The cloud cover is so cool the way the sun is reflecting off the cloud edges you can imagine how bright & warm it would be on top of the clouds, kind of teasing cheeky will I rain or won’t I. How are your potted plants going?

    1. That would be so awesome if we could have the sunny days and rainy nights! Hahaha!! I’m thinking like you, not too much to ask for, right? Lol 🀣
      You sure make me giggle!! 🀭 My girlfriend’s pony is super duper sweet. She ended up horse shopping without me, I was kinda sad about that and let her know but we are all good now. She thought I wouldn’t want to spend the time! Wait what? We are talking about horses right? Oh well, he’s a fine horse and lots of fun to be had on the trails, for sure!! πŸ˜€πŸ΄πŸ€ 

      I’ve been a bad girl and other than my potted plants from last year, which are thriving nicely I still haven’t gotten anything new planted. I need to prioritize that ASAP! Lol – it’s fun to post about my teeny garden so I’ll be working on that in the next few weeks! Have a super duper week!! ❀️

  6. Thank you for doing the weather Fahrenheit to Celsius conversion πŸ™‚
    I have been known to be weather-obsessed on occasion. Even though it’s autumn/fall here temperatures have been warm, only becoming chilly in the early mornings and evenings. Even the slight breeze is warm.
    Tomatoes can be quite forgiving ito watering. Other veggies are less so.
    I enjoyed having coffee with you this week. Wishing you an awesome week ahead.

    1. Your welcome Regina! It isn’t too difficult to add the temp conversions and it is nice to know it’s helpful! That’s so amazing you all are heading into autumn/fall as we head into Spring. Thanks for the encouragement with the tomatoes. I had some last year that were splitting as they grew which can be from over watering I think? Lol – thanks so much for having coffee with me! 🀠

  7. It’s been a bit chilly past couple of days… Like a reminder that winter is coming for this side of the hemisphere even the sun doesn’t get as hot, it’s like it’s on power saver mode 🀣🀣🀣

    Here’s to many more Roscoe’s πŸ₯€πŸ₯‚

  8. It sounds like you are having versions of our weather down there. Ours is cold overnight, then the sun comes up and it feels just like summer for a few hours and then cold again. We too need the rain — about 8-12 inches would be welcome – spread over a week or more of course. All at once would be a mess.

    It is fun hearing about your horse stories and the joy they bring you.

    Also, I’ve not forgotten about your tea coupon. I’ve just not gotten as much time in front of the computer as I’ve need. The funeral from last weekend kinda blew up my schedule and I’m almost caught up. Let me know if you want some great tea suggestions. I’ve tried several and am pretty sure I have some opinions lying around here somewhere.

    Soon.
    Blessings.

  9. Thanks so much Gary!! I always enjoy our chats and I’m so happy you enjoy my horse stories. It’s always so fun to share!!

    Whenever you get a chance for the coupon no rush at all and yes, would love to have some tea suggestions. Thanks so much for taking the time to enlighten me on the tea and everything. It’s greatly appreciated! ❀️
    Have a great week!! πŸ˜€πŸ€ β€οΈ

  10. What a beautiful horse. I always love your trail rides. What a neat area you must live in. I’m in the PNW and I’ve often thought it would be fun to go on a trail ride (but I don’t know anyone with horses) or when we travel to places and we see these rolling hills I imagine riding a horse all over them.

  11. Hi Kristen, thank you so much for visiting and for commenting! It’s funny because when we moved to our town, I’m the only one in my family who thought I’d died and gone to horse heaven!!! This is by far the coolest, neatest horsey town I’ve seen in Southern California!! To have the streets with dedicated horse trails over 100 miles of them is really unique!!

    I have family up in the PNW. It’s so BEAUTIFUL there and I’ve considered moving there but things didn’t go that way. I know what you mean, seeing rolling hills and wanting to trail ride all over them! That would be so FUN!! ❀️🐴
