So, on this particular trip, I didn't see any wild horses as I mentioned in another post when I saw the roadrunner and the horse transport. As I've said before, I don't always see them and I think it makes me appreciate them more when I do, but sometimes I really wish I'd see them every time. Even if they weren't someplace where I could take a picture, just seeing them is exciting. But since I didn't see any wild ones, I decided to stalk domestic ones. My usual spots didn't net any ones that were very photograph-able so I tried some different roads and found a few.

One one road I was driving down, I had to stop and turn around because there was an equestrian gate and there was no way my car was going to make it through. Plus, one of the signs says 'no motor vehicles'
I also have a couple of more pictures of the horse transport. This first one was taken just after it had stopped. I didn't know what it was going to do so I turned down a road I've been able to photograph horses on.
We've been in our new work space for 2 days now. This being the 2nd day. It's nice having the underground parking so when I come out at 3:30 my car isn't all heated up already. But we've been having problems. 3 of our web-based systems went down yesterday so there was little work we could do. One of my jobs is to stop payment on checks we've issued and since the bank system is web-based, I couldn't do that. I sent the claim reps who'd requested the stop pays an email to let them know we couldn't do them and fortunately none of them came over and gave us heck for it. That's a drawback to the move...the claim reps are just around the corner from us and so they can come over anytime they want. This morning the power strips on at least 4 computers failed so we got to sit around for 90 minutes and wait for new ones to be purchased and brought in. So much for coming in an hour early to get caught up. At least I still get paid for that hour. I volunteered to work overtime for the rest of the week this week and by Thursday my brain will be liquified due to a messed-up sleep schedule. That's why I don't do OT. That and we don't work 40 hours so you have to work 1.25 hours regular time before OT kicks in and it's rarely worth it, but if I'm thinking of a new car, I'll need the extra money. hahaha.
I guess that's it. I should get back to work. I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday. And if there's anybody from Canada who reads my blog...Happy Canada Day!
