Nice! I wish we had snow to ride in, but all we got this year so far is rain and what snow we did get came when I couldn't ride. :( You look like you had a ton of fun! Your horse and dog are soooo cute!

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Well, I admit it's not the best bridle but my dog chewed the good one and this is the only one I have left. I don't know what kind it is, but it is available everywhere here.

Thank you. I got her from a friend who found her near her dead mother when she was less than 2 months old. I am not sure about her breed but she looks very similar to the Iceland sheepdog. She is not very aggressive with humans but very good at keeping wild animals (like wolves) away from my place.
Here is a photo of her when I first got her (of course after showering her).

I can see them now! I have Vista as well but for some reason, they weren't working.

Wow! Very pretty but made me cold just looking at them. Pretty horse and love the dog!

Yes I did enjoy my time especially that there is no work because of snow so I have spent the last few days in my little room with my horses riding and drinking yerba mate. I hope you'll have snow soon.

I think temperatures drop dramatically where you live. When these pictures were taken it was around zero or -1 centigrade. At night it drops to -7. You can easily ride without gloves, and I have a small room in nature with a diesel stove so when I get cold I get inside and drink hot yerba mate that makes me feel warm.

I don't like your photos........I LOVE them.

And I really like your haffie. I like the expression on his face when you are riding. It is like he is thinking.."That white lump was a big bush yesterday!".

Your dog looks quite intelligent, however, chewing up your good bridle must have really put his life in jeopardy!! With a fur coat like his, I can imagine he is much more comfortable in the cold than in the hot season. Correct?

Thanks again for posting wonderful insights into your part of the world. MORE PLEASE!!
