I finally got finished with my house plans and got a set of blueprints so I hope to be starting it this Spring too. That'll probably further cut back on my riding time, but it'll be worth it to finally have my own place and barn and all the horses under one roof.
Beaker, how's it going with TheFellow and the job?
Duchess, how's Bob and all your horses? You getting a lot of snow this winter? We haven't gotten ANY and I've been disappointed.
Becky, how's your new apartment coming? I'll bet there's quite a bit more done by now. You need to post us some more pictures.
Hair, I know you stay busy over at Baywind. I haven't been on there in quite a while so I don't know what's going on with you and your bunch either. I hope you and Bruce and all the horses, cats and dogs are staying warm and dry.
Here's a few pics of some of our recent rides...
Me and Bob...
Me and Grace...
Thought this one was really funny...
Me and Whirl. Not the best picture of her, but she's really coming along. She's barefoot in the rear with boots on the front or I wouldn't have had her up there for fear of slipping. I'd never done anything like that before but had seen it done, so I just asked her to get up there on the spur of the moment, jut to see if she'd do it, and she went like she'd she'd done it all her life. It kinda shocked me! She's absolutely fearless and has more heart than just about any of the others. She'll give you everything she has and then some, so you have to watch out for her or she'll over-do. And to think that the trainer said she didn't have any guts! Harumph!
I'll try to do a little better about checking in over here. I miss y'all!
It’s great to hear from you. In the second picture, is that ice???? And the next to the last looks like an old house foundation or an old wall. Whirl looks great too.
Can you describe your house plans? I’m glad you are going to be able to start on it.
Bob is okay, has a compression fracture of the spine but fortunately my son and my niece and nephew are making sure stalls are cleaned, feed moved, etc. so that helps a lot.
Still trying to sell horses :) down to eight but hoping to find homes for six of them. Belle, the chocolate lab tested mild hip dysplasia so we had her spayed and gave her to my son for a pet. We took a queensland rescue that he’d gotten and Bob is working with him. So - still six dogs.
Not much snow here at all, we seem to be in a pretty severe drought. Lots of wind but the storms all hang up right before the Sierras.
Great pictures, but it looks awfully cold:)
We have some drywall up down here now, but we’ve kind of moved back to working on the house. Last week we prepped it for painting, and tomorrow we are going to paint it...we’ve been waiting on the weather to cooperate.
Today I’m taking a friend of mines daughter ot OK City to take her baby to a doc. He was born with club feet and has to have new casts put on every week. No one wants her going by herself, but everyone works, so I’m going to run her up there today. I think it will be interesting to watch them cast this baby’s legs. This will be his third set. He will have 5 sets altogether, then braces for 3 years.
When I get back tonight, I have to go to the bowling alley to pick up my new ball!!!:), try it out, then the kids and I bowl on a league tonight. So today is going to be very busy.
Good to hear from you and see your pictures.
Fabulous pics, frog!
