    Hi Saddlebag - I'm originally from Ontario But now we're NW of Cochrane. It's gorgeous country. Have to admit, though, even after 20 years I still miss the water in Ontario. My apartment was just outside of Toronto on Lake Ontario, our cottage was on Lake Huron, and then I moved to T.Bay and lived very close to Lake Superior. Here in the Calgary area ... well, the only lakes are the fake man-made ones. Just not the same.

    That being said, the spring melt from the mountains hasn't hit yet, so our wetlands may end up being rather lake-like after all

    Congratulations on your adventure. Sounds like you moved to an awesome place :) we made the same step last September and after a long long winter we are now starting to get everything set up. We have two horses and some chickens...lots of fencing needs to be done. Its an adventure for sure...lots of learning and often frustrations...but I wouldn't trade this in for nothing !!! :)

    Well, we've passed the one-month mark and nothing horrendous has happened so far. Yay! Water is in the barn, heat is almost done and now I'm just trying to keep the trenches (which haven't been backfilled yet) from flooding the barn now that we are in to day 3 of non-stop rain.

    Felt so sorry for the horses yesterday that we brought all three into the stalls and let them spend the night indoors. They are back outside now - and quite happy about it if all the bucking was any indication. Daughter and I have a horsemanship clinic tomorrow so we might bring them in again simply so that we have dry horses to load in the trailer tomorrow.

    Tonnes of wildlife here. There's a great grey owl nesting on our property and yesterday I saw a momma moose and her little baby. Birds galore and the barn cat has even shown himself finally. The snow is gone and when it's not windy or pouring rain, it's paradise. Actually, it's paradise no matter what. Wonder when that feeling will disappear?

    I'll try to post pictures of the owl and the moose ... they're pretty cool.
