Lilly looks like a darling and brown horses are just so lovely in snow! :)

Snickers gave me a laugh today. I prepared him some sunflower meal and poured hot water on it to make him a warm mash. However, I brought it to him a little too soon, while it was still hot, and I had already let him out of the pastures without a halter, so he was circling me impatiently to get his mash. I decided to put his bucket under a cart we have that is standing right by the fence, and this is when IT happened - Snickers suddenly went down on his knees and tried snaking his head beneath the cart to get the bucket! It was funny and smart at the same time. Not too safe, though, so I didn't let him to continue and gave him the bucket only when I thought it had cooled enough. He still thought it's a bit too hot and munched on it with tiny mouthfuls, pawing at the ground in annoyment - Sir Snickers likes to gulp down his feed as fast as possible usually.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

I hope we get snow this year. Usually it's really cold by now (I live in Missouri), but today it was 66 and tomorrow it's supposed to be in the mid 70s!

We've had snow since mid October. I'm already wishing for spring,lol.It's been cold,windy,and snowing for the last few days,downright miserable outside. Horses don't seem to mind though,they've got nice thick winter coats and lots to eat.They all sure looked pretty this morning,covered in frost.

Was 37C here yesterday supposedly but it really didn't feel hot to me...I was still wearing jeans and a flannel longsleeved shirt.

Brocky had his first ride at his new place today - he did his crazy bucking bronco impression on the ground but was a good boy when ridden luckily. Silly thing...

I feel so much satisfaction right now from tricking my printer into thinking it had magenta ink. Evil printer.

Sorry for the double post but I've got a question.

I'm trying to sell one of my saddles as its not right for me, and I've posted it on some online classifieds. I have a person interested and they said to send it an address and they can pay with direct deposit or something but I'm feeling a little wary.

It's out of my way but close enough for me to drive (45 mins) and I am thinking of saying I'll drive it down, they can look and pay me then. If it doesn't work out, a drive wasted but they have cheap feed down there anyway. Would that be an alright thing to say or a bit weird? Or am I just being paranoid and should get it sent to the address after receiving payment?

Nope, don't think you're being paranoid, more like being smart! I'm very wary of sales like the one you're describing, and the worst they can do is refuse for you to drive it down - in which case they're almost certainly dodgy!

Agreed. I don't think it's paranoid to take precautions in protecting yourself. If the people who are interested are honest, they'll understand why you want to drive it down too.
