Some parts of Sask are quite hilly. Unfortunately the #1 happens to be on the flattest most boring stretch - Pense lol.

Weather. Well its been it's typical can of worms lol. Last week we had a bunch of snow. Then we had a ton of cold wind. Some sun. Been some chilly nights. Think Monday night was -15 or cooler. Our thermometer said -13 at 9:30. Started chopping ice for the critters. Over an inch on the dugout already. I figure all the experts(meterorologists and my big hairy saddle horse that looks like and old mossy grizzly) are right about our up coming winter. Another super cold, super snowy one. Oh well. I love winter anyways.
Any other Saskabushers getting excited for Agribition! I am. :)

I didn't even see this! Figure I might as well join on in, seeing as I am Canadian. c:

I'm currently living in Kelowna, British Columbia. Just moved onto an acreage, but I've spent my entire life around horses. Nice to come across some fellow Canadians, for sure!

sing out, sing out !
( things are only getting better )

Hello everyone!
I live out west of Edmonton, in the middle of nowhere lol. Have 3 people on our farm, lol, a dog named Charlie, she is an Aussie cross, Ol'gimpy our cat, 6 hens and a rooster,and our 3 horses, Blue, Dunni and Abby.
I have rode all my life and have currently taken up barrel racing, just got me a 1D horse! Lol
Snow on the ground currently which was quiet a shock since it was 13-17 and sunny last week, and then bam! Into the minuses and snow! Yesterday morning was -16 here with the wind. But I suppose it is winter time!

Well herlooo thar.

It's a chilly, windy day in Sasky, and guess what I get to do?
Trail cows 4miles home! Might not seem like far, but in the snow and wind it feels like an 18 mile trek.

I have me some wooly horses already and they are in Winter starvation mode - the lead mares are food selfish and if anyone comes near their patch of grass, all h-e-double hockey sticks breaks loose. LOL mares.

Gawsh I wish I could get to an indoor without driving forever and a day.

I have a friend taking an ag managment course in olds, loves it! And I can totally agree to the riding arena, we have one down the rode here buts its not insulated and has no lights. So you have to ride during daylight and most times its warmer outside! Hubby as given me full permission to build a riding arena, once we win the lottery!! Hahaha
