    Clever device. With my horses, I would be concerned about the sneak factor as I have one who wouldn't hesitate to pounce on one of the less dominant ones when they've got their heads inside. Have you experienced any difficulties like that?

    That's what a was thinking too , Chevaux. But looks sturdier than the nag bag that's for sure, those things sure didn't stand up to the hype.
    Not too bad a day in Saskabush - windy with freezing rain and a bit of flurries but still warmer than a few days ago, lol. Went to agribition yesterday. Picked up a real nice set of reins and a few other things. Was kinda disappointed at the number of vendors ( bet its really expensive for them to be there) seemed to be half as much as there used to be. Oh well, now to wait to use new reins lol. Too much to do today,maybe tomorrow.

    It's mild in my area right now, but I know the temperature isn't going to hold and there will be more snow.

    I was at agribition also - they were selling them there for about $280.

    ..( bet its really expensive for them to be there) seemed to be half as much as there used to be. ...
    Yes it is frightfully expensive - hundreds of dollars for just the space never the other expenses that go along with it. My husband used to work for a company that carried some farm/ranch supplies and they stopped going because the expense outweighed the sales brought in (well technically, I suppose, it would the sales that weren't brought in).

    Ok so the Western Agribition in Saskatchewan is supposes to be the biggest cattle show in the world. I was wondering is it advertised in other provinces like the Calgary stampede is?

    Well hello winter, you've arrived, I knew you were coming but I wasn't ready, I never am

    I am seriously peed off with it today though, I was due to go for my forst lesson since the accident, but snow, and worse icy roads have made me chicken out, Oh well the laundry will get done anyway.

    Ya I was supposed to be going to a funeral today, but its a 2 hour drive on a good day! And now there is over a foot of snow on the ground.
    Good thing I got the chicken coop all done up. As for the horses the boys were good but my poor mare was cold this morning, I felt terrible, I should have thrown a blanket on her but this is her first winter with me and our first real taste of winter. Guess I figured she had a better coat then she does. Oh well dried out and blanketed now!

    Was woken at first light this morning by the wind shaking the house,looked out the window at a wall of white,major snow storm/blizzard happening out there.So,there goes my plans for the day..Couldn't get out of the yard if I wanted to!The snow has eased up in the last hour,visibility got to where I could see the barn,so bundled up and ventured out to do chores. Moved the horses to a more protected area,and did a head count on the sheep to make sure no one was buried in a snow drift.Made sure all the livestock had food/water/shelter.Now I'm back indoors and thinking today shall be a movie marathon day.. :)
