I created a record of all of Sky's expenses from bills to purchases to services and have it tracking how much I spend per month and per year and overall.

I love fidding around with things like that :P

If you ever need help, let me know!

I'm too scared to track my expenses... I don't want to know what I waste my money on! Should start though.

I am so cold right now. I don't know why, maybe I am coming down with something

Woohoo! We're talking Excel now? I practically live in that program! Budget, horse nutrition plan, health diary, training program, holiday packing, data analysis for work... Excel-lent! More than happy to give my budget template to someone if they want it

Ok guys I'm pretty nervous about this hour haul today :(. My horse is quite high strung and has been a handful lately. I'm scared she is going to hurt herself on the ride. She will be traveling with another horse that is a pro at trailering but still kinda nervous.

Oh and I'm actually going to be riding western so I can haul more stuff. I really want an Aussie or endurance saddle thing.

Well I use excel everyday at work, although we do not use it to its full potential. It still confuses me sometimes.

I'm up so early on a Saturday there isn't even news on lol. I'm watching some home remodel show.... So I have some good recommendations now for siding and roofs lol.

Don't worry! They're generally pretty good when travelling with others. Let us know how it goes.

I was terrified when trailering Wyn home for the first time! She had a very serious leg injury about a year before I got her (the reason why she was so cheap - though it appears to be healed perfectly) and it happened in a trailer. But she did great! If Lizzy is with another horse that is a pro at trailering, I'm sure she'll be ok. I hope you have a great day out on the trails!

(The injury happened in a very shady old trailer, that had a home-made divider that she got her leg caught in)

We didn't get to go today :(. Some things came up. But since we have a trailer to borrow we might be going this week. And she would be going with the same horse so she will hopefully be fine. She hates being in a stall so the trailer worrys me.

Fingers crossed, Saskia, stay healthy! :)

And I'm sure it will be ok, Poppy. Just try to be calm when you actually haul her, and trust her - she'll feel that and feel more confident. But I sure appreciate that my horse is an easy hauler - just point at the trailer and he loads/unloads himself in a heartbeat. The only thing he dislikes about hauling is standing in traffic jams - then he starts pawing at the floor of the trailer.

I picked a lot of chanterelles today, and then baked them in butter with onions and black pepper, with boiled potatoes from the new harvest. Yum, delicious!!! I love finding my food in the forest.

And Snickers pulled his first log from the forest today. He did a really great job and I'm very proud of him. He seemed to be proud himself to have done such an important task. :) We'll use the log to make a cross-country jump in the trails.

Ooo your food sounds delicious. I think you need to post some yummy recipes, I love making different food.

Snickers is a draft right? So glad he did well with the log. I wish we had horses that could do that. It would make things do much easier. And you can always clear your own trails that way :).

Luckily Lizzy will do anything I ask from the ground. I just worry about her getting scared after she's all locked in. It's a small two horse straight load so the kind alot of horses don't like lol.
