After morning coffee, we went to get Iggy, who was unruly and got away from us. It doesn't bode well for tomorrow, when I need to bring him in myself. Just after lunch, we drove Libby down to see a horse that is up for adoption. It had been abused, then turned over to a trainer, who loves him but can't keep him. He was a very sweet horse – jumpy but willing to trust. He had soft eyes, and it felt like he just wanted to be loved. Libby is looking for a project, not a show horse, so it seemed like a good match. We will return on Sunday to get the horse, whose name is "Minstrel" – a lovely name for a lovely horse.

Late afternoon, we walked to the shop in town to stuff for tonight's meal. In the afternoon, I worked while Allison went out for a ride on Iggy – just mostly riding him in circles around the show-jumping course. I wandered out to take a few photographs, then returned to work some more. It was a cool day.

In the evening, Celine and Michel arrived. We had a lovely dinner (chili and bread), then they went to bed early, as they have to be up at 3am. I worked – three phone calls – until 1:30am then went to sleep myself.
