I think it's just the fact that there really isn't much to do now except wait. It's not like at the end of their pregnancy where there are changes daily - the changes right now are so subtle and there's some sort of saying about active minds and idle hands... I try to keep busy, but whenever I have down time, my mind wanders over to the subject and I start to over-think. It doesn't help with Lilly that she has such a thick coat and is pretty broad throughout, so any subtle changes won't be noticeable. I'm glad though that she has the sideways sticking out belly now. I notice it also moves differently when she runs. April still can't come soon enough though.

It was beautiful today compared to yesterday,this was what yesterday looked like.Felt bad for the animals,but they didn't seem too bothered by it,at least not to the point of wanting to use the shelters,lol.
Wow, i really love the horse in the snow pic. Would make a fab painting!

Somehow the scariest falls are when the horse goes down .

I'm so over waiting for my saddles to come in. Thes a saddlery 2 hours away with an arena so when the saddles are in I'm taking prin up to testride and have one fitted.

They're due in Friday but I need to set a time with their saddle fitter so I might not get my saddle till NEXT WEEK :(

I agree, the scarier falls are when the horse goes down. Has that happened to you recently?

Have had a bit of a crazy week. Our neighbour left his window open and the temperature dropped, freezing the heating pipes, causing them to burst. His entire place flooded and it ran into our condo as well. So our bed and other bedroom furniture is currently in the living room and it smells like disinfectant. The neighbour was very apologetic and brought us a gift card for a nearby restaurant as penance. Luckily there was no major damage for us and we're not on the hook to pay for anything.

Those falls are very scary;I've only had a horse come down with me a couple of times,but I'd prefer it never happen again!

Ah,that sucks Glynnis! What a mess that must have created,especially for the neighbor..At least you didn't get it as bad as you could have,and it was nice of the neighbor to give you a gift for your troubles.

Yeah, we're on the ground floor and apparently it was noticed when water started leaking into the parkade. People were in right away with mondo sized fans and a dehumidifier. It could have been much worse, so we're lucky in that regard.

Yay! I have been gone for a long while. I spent 10 months in British Columbia doing an internship working with Akhal-Tekes (I wrote about it on the 'Meet the Community' page under "I'm back again".)
I am loving being back in Saskatchewan! I love the prairies! They speak to me like no other land has! On the other hand, I really don't like the fact that it snowed twice since I've been home.

I get to see my two horses on Friday! I haven't seen them for about a year. My brother is hauling them down to my friend's place about 30 minutes from here, where I'll be boarding them. I can't wait to ride my gelding and get to know my filly/mare (she's 5, but not trained at all).

I just got back to Sk on the 3rd of April, so I'm settling in with work (I got my old job back) and living with my sister and brother-in-law. I hope to get my own place this fall.

Other than that, I am getting my minivan (I need a cooler car than a minivan, but that's what I have) up and running again. New tires, new battery, oil change, etc etc. My credit card is going to love me!

I am 21 (22 this summer).

I think a revival is definitely in order. :) Welcome back GallopingGuitarist! It sounds like you had a pretty awesome experience in your internship. Was it a breeding facility?
