HOW TORONTO FOOT SPECIALIST SPENDS HER SPARE TIME

I AROSE AT 6:00 AM TODAY TO DO ONE OF OUR YEARLY CHORES.  PUTTING UP 300 BALES OF HAY FOR OUR 2 HORSES THAT WE KEEP ON OUR PROPERTY IN SCARBOROUGH, ONTARIO.  THE FARMER THAT WE GET OUR HAY FROM COMES FROM LINDSAY, ONTARIO AND LEAVES HIS PLACE AT 4:00 AM.  IT IS STILL DARK AND BECAUSE HE HAS A TRANSPORT TRUCK THAT CAN'T MAKE IT UP THE DRIVEWAY, HAULING 300 BALES THAT WEIGH 50 LBS. EACH ABOUT 800 YARDS IS NO EASY FEAT.  NEEDLESS TO SAY I DIDN'T NEED TO JOG OR HIT THE GYM TODAY.  WE HAVE TWO LOVELY HORSES WHO ARE LUCKY TO BE ABLE TO GRAZE OF FRESH GRASS MOST OF THE YEAR.  WE GIVE THEM FULL REIGN OF OUR PROPERTY AND WE AWAKE EACH MORNING TO FIND THEM WAITING AT OUR SLIDING GLASS DOOR IN OUR KITCHEN, WAITING FOR TREATS ALONG WITH OUR CAT TAFFY.  ONE OF OUR HORSES IS CALLED TODDLES AND IS A 4 YEAR OLD THOROUGHBRED WHO DIDN'T MAKE IT TO THE TRACK AS HE LIVED UP TO HIS NAME AND WAS A GIFT FROM FRANK STRONACH. THE OTHER HORSE IS A 5 YEAR OLD QUARTER HORSE CALLED CONCHO AND IS THE BOSS AND A HORSE WITH A LOT OF SPUNK.  WE ARE LUCKY TO HAVE THOUSANDS OF ACRES OF PARKLAND ADJOINING OUR PROPERTY ALONG THE BLUFFS AND LAKE ONTARIO TO BE ABLE TO RIDE THEM.  WE HAVE HAD MANY HORSES OVER THE YEARS AND OUR LAST HORSE WHOME WE HAD SINCE HE WAS 6 MONTHS OLD, PRINCE LIVED TO BE OVER 30 YEARS OLD WHICH IS REALLY OLD FOR A HORSE.  THEY TRUELY ARE BEAUTIFUL ANIMALS EVEN IF THEY REQUIRE A LOT OF WORK.  MOST THINGS THAT ARE WORTHWHILE IN LIFE REQUIRE WORK.
