There are others that don’t feel obligated to work hard on the weekends.
As far as I can tell, they live at the main stables during the week and take a break on the weekend, with a total of seven of them visiting the paddox behind our row of houses. Not the sturdy outdoor horse of my childhood, but barn ponies needing blankets and a lot of care. I certainly don’t mind them; they are relatively quiet. But I do need to have a talk with their keepers. Since I am not a gardener – I have no need for the fresh manure that someone has deposited over the fence into my back yard.

Audio Books &
Suzanne Brockmann’s Flashpoint
or watching another DVD of Medium (season 3).
and otherwise spending the day
And completely leaving out the housework.
