Random pictures in the snow....

Well, we had about 8-10 inches of snow the other day and I snapped a few pictures of random stuff around the barn. We're expecting some really bad weather right now, it's sleeting currently and they're calling for 10-15 inches of snow with a 50 mph wind....so drifts several feet deep. So there will probably be more snow pix in the next couple of days.

First up is Talyn, my yearling filly.






Then, I was out in the big pasture and I was absolutely certain that Rafe had taken a growth spurt because he seemed so much huger than he used to be. I sticked him and, thankfully, I was wrong and he's still holding at 16.1. He was hanging around with Taz, who is definitely bigger than he was. He didn't come up until I'd already put the stick back in the barn though.














Then, I took a ride on Dobe.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

LOL, it sucks because Rafe just keeps getting bulkier. Before long, my saddle will probably be too small .

Cool pics! You have a lot more snow than I do...it snowed yesterday morning but with the wind I think it ended up in Utah!

Yep, I don't know how I survived. Had to snap the pix between instances of him running off and trying to buck with me .

I really won't complain about the snow. Today is the first time I've seen green grass and standing water in over 2 years.

Only his shoulders are narrowish. By "narrowish," I mean he still fits FQHB, but his big ol' drafty butt is just as wide.
