May/June/July Recap

I'm braindead for an interesting title, so this will have to suffice.

*slowly resurfaces*

Hello, yes. I am alive and well, thank you for noticing. Oh boy. Three months' worth to recap, and all busy!
So.
I was just going to keep it at May/June, but decided that it would just be way easier as I remember things to also add July.
Happenings:
1. This actually bridged the end up April and the beginning of May, but I didn't put it in the April Recap because I didn't get it fixed until May. But anyways. My hours at Rosegate were significantly reduced due to finances and the fact that their stable hand could do the work they needed me to do, so there was really no need for me except on Saturdays.

I say the flock is mine, because I've been the one taking care of them. Dad just provides the finances and facility. I take care of them morning and night. I go and retrieve the food. I collect the eggs. I clean everything out. I make the decisions about how I take care of them. The only real requirement is that they all stay in the pasture.

But anyways.
