Freezes solid at night, gorgeous sunshine in the daytime but nothing melts until noon, *sigh. Sorry, didn't realize I hadn't checked in......Karen from 100 Mile House, BC, I have a couple nags and a family of humans.

I'm Desiree.

I live in Vancouver, BC!

I love living in Vancouver but it is not cheap to ride horses. I have 2 cats, a rabbit, two turtles. I ride a cranky mare, actually she's only cranky on the ground but she's great to ride. We have a love hate relationship, aka she hates me and I love her. She loves the treats I buy from Greenhawk though. And I'm riding another boy, I had my 2nd lesson on him last week. It was amazing. He's one of those horses you can love and cuddle with.

And I just need to say, I don't miss living in Sask.

Another Albertan checking in. A frozen one. :)
I've got 6 horses,some sheeps,and a cat,and share in an array of other animals here on the farm.Located somewhere in the middle of the province,or thereabouts.Ride both english and western,mainly just for pleasure,trail riding,and whenever fences need checking or the neighbors cows need chasing.Had to take the last three or so years off from all but the very occasional ride due to health reasons,but trying hard to get back to the point where I can start doing more of it.Raise a foal or two every few years as well,which I thoroughly enjoy.

Checking in (again) from northern Alberta where fall of 2013 has been much better than 2012. I live on an acreage just outside of a Edmonton with my family of 4, 4 horses, 3 cats, 2 dogs, 2 geckos, a uromastyx lizard and a tree frog.

Mmm .. lets see.. I live on a nice 5 acre lot, there's 3 humans here (including myself LOL) 5 cats, 2 dogs, a bearded dragon, 3 horses, a flock of hens with two roos and one lonely little turkey named Bubba.

What's wrong with Sask? Apart from it's flat, cold and miles from anywhere?

Lol! I lived in Melville.

Just a TON of drama, with young and old. Type of drama I never even had to deal with in high school. I made some good friends, but generally it's just a different culture that I didn't completely enjoy. The girls especially, one minute they're bff's, the next they hate each other, back stabbing. Too much work!

It's too different for me, I'm from Vancouver originally so totally different. Did love the hockey though, and I didn't mind the cold at all. Oh and I don't drive. Lol Like I said, I'm from Vancouver. I take the bus.

Here on VI we have had the most gorgeous October ever! No rain at all, just sun and blue skies and lovely fall colours (notice I spelled it the Canadian way?) Perfect riding weather, not too hot and no bugs! I am sure the monsoons will hit sooner or later, though. (and I STILL won't be prepared!)
