we already have a foot and its till going strong ! luckily my friend has 4wd so we made it out to the barn early. wont be able to get back later though, its so hilly around here, we barely made it the first time. horses were soaked through their blankets, they will just have to survive until tomorrow.

Ill trade the rain we are getting for some snow..

I had a talk with my mom about it and she said she has to come out at least three days a week to help take care of all the horses since she doesn't pay anything.(she does most weeks) My mom also spoke to her about leasing him out to a lady who wanted to event him and she said no once again. My mom is frustrated about it but feels its pointless I guess, since she only enforces coming when she really needs her help.

Ohh well I think I lost to many hairs over nothing. Im going to try to work with Leroy(sisters horse) instead of riding my 18 y/o arab/andy cross Comet. I could leave Comet in a field and get on a few months later and it would be the same horse :) Since my time is limited with riding 4 horses twice a week, college, and working full time. Ohh if there were only more hours in the day.

Really thinking today. My boy Charlie is retired at my uncles and I miss him like crazy. We'd always play in the snow and I'd build igloos for him! Yes I am an adult and still build snow forts for my HORSE, lol. He's three hours away and still mine. I know he obviously doesn't feel like I do and he's happy being a horse and not fretting. He was horribly abused, and I don't mean the one's claiming "abuse." It was BAD and makes me sick to even talk about it. He deserves to be a horse now, he's only 13 and we had good and bad days. Just miss my Charlie boy, sorry all for the sob story..

Gypsy- We're at about a foot or more here too, waiting till five my dad has insisted he pick me up in his truck then he's going to drop me at the barn. I'm his "little girl" and he won't have it any other way, lol.

Chubby- I love your avatar and I do wish there was more time in the day. After working and class work I feel like I'm running low on horse time. ):

We have snow over our heads now, and it continues snowing. Will have a white Yule this year! :) And the horses are extatic, they keep playing in the snow all the time and have grown thick and fluffy coats that are even warmer when they get snow blanketed over their backsides during snowstorms. None of them has even thought of using the shelters yet!

*sigh* Just as things were going well in my life...

Brock decided to buck off the lady who leases him and be a general jerk. She feels she's not dominant enough to deal with him, which I totally understand. She has decided she will have to stick with just her other horse (who is not an easy one as it is but still not on Brock's level) but is happy to keep him at hers for the time being and help me find him a new home.

On top of that my job security has gone out the window thanks to office politics so I'm likely going to be job hunting over the next few months. If things were more stable I'd have Brock shipped to Victoria and keep him but I'm just not in the position where I have guaranteed future income. I'm getting myself registered as a sole trader asap and doing little things like printing business cards, so I can start my own consultancy if I have to (thankfully the work I do is in high demand by a wide range of organisations, and I do have solid professional networks).

But not what I needed just after I'd recovered from the stress of finding a house - I'm not supposed to get stressed, it makes me ill (mentally and physically) so hopefully these things will be resolved quickly. But a stress free Christmas would have been nice...

The snow is now at some places deeper than a horse's knee. I went on a bareback trail ride today with Snickers and one of my barnmates/her horse, and it was fantastic! I love being able to canter bareback on trails through snow with just a halter and loose reins. :)
