    I understand where you are coming from. I used to board at a place where I could go ride on some gorgeous land and I would just go ride there and take off Hunny's bridle and then let her graze while I sat and listened. Where she is now is a better place for her to be and she is happier, even though the riding area is flat farmland :( However if we want to trailer somewhere to ride it is an easy and quick trailer ride (only about 30 mins to river bottoms or hills each way)

    I read the thread and it does sound like the move will be good but will take some time getting used to. The new barn sounds like the BO has a good head on her shoulders and is working within the means of the barn. It may not be enjoyable at first, but once you get used to the people and the facilities I bet you will fall in love with the place for different reasons.

    I got a hair cut yesterday! I no longer look like I have a mullet when I wear a hat! LOL!

    A couple of pictures.

    Before


    After (sorry fuzzy cell phone pic)


    I'll try and get some better pictures later. I'll have to get my sister to take some pictures as my camera died on me. It had no right to die, I had only used (and abused) it for 5 or 6 years. Taking it riding, long car trips, heat, cold.... Well, I guess it did have a good life.

    Hey hope all is well with everyone :)
    Riding has been terrible lately with the weather and such.

    I'm well... well, a little sore, but that's from shoveling the driveway. We got 6 inches of snow over Sunday.

    Saskia, I'm glad Rosie is settling in!

    It just won't stop snowing here;it just snows and blows and snows some more.I nearly hit the ditch on the way home from work this afternoon because of the blowing snow and drifting,then was having troubles even getting up our driveway..I am so tired of winter now,I want spring! We're due to start lambing this week,so I'm hoping the weather will become a little more favorable for baby lambs.

    I am super glad Rosie has settled. She's been alone for about 5 months now in a little paddock, and towards the end it was so muddy she was getting injured.

    At the new place she was happy. She was running with the horses, happy. She has about 100 acres now which is great.

    It's starting to get cold here, but we'll never get snow! Winter will be good and bad. I don't want to start rugging :(

    All my guys are bundled in tonight :) its snowing here to but thankfully it should stop tomorrow.

    Gah I don't know is its just me but im 22 years OLD and I feel like my career path is so foggy. I have a full time job at a kennel as a supervisor but its not really something I want to do for the rest of my life. Right now im in school for radiology but I don't think it is my calling and would really rather be in the art field... I was always told do whats in demand, until recently a chem professor caught me doodling and told me I should be doing something with all that talent instead. He said when you do something you love you succeed more in life than just doing something for a pay check, I feel its true. I wish I could explain it to my parents as well as he explained it to me.

    I just got done shovelling the rest of the driveway. My back hurts so bad! And there is nowhere else to throw the snow! It's all piled at least 3 feet high, if not 5 feet high, on either side of the driveway. It can't possibly snow more! I don't know what to do with it!

    Chubbypony, I hope it all works out for you!

    Haha,I know the feeling! The snow has piled up so high here that the horses can just walk right over the fence in spots.Sequoya got out this afternoon and when I went out there to get her,I was in snow up to my thighs;once I got to her I just held on and let her drag me out. :)

    I also hope everything works out for you,Chubby pony.I'm kind of in limbo myself in regards to a career.Thought I had it all figured out,until I got sick and now am not physically able to do some of those things. Having to come up with a plan B,but so far nothing's really clicking..
