    Looks like it was a great concert. I've been to a couple of Country concerts, but none were of the new country. I've been to several Willie Nelson, George Jones (been to his house in south Ms for supper), George Strait(met in person at a party in Nashville,great conversationalist), Waylon Jennings and a couple others.

    Been to one Contemporary Christian concert here locally that showcased 4 different popular main stream bands. Went with my wife and 13 yr old daughter and had a blast.

    Ccg, I've never been fond of cats so will leave my opinion at the door on that one.. lol
    Sounds like the horses are appreciating the work put into the lean to and take full advantage of it. I have been so busy with sorting things out from the move that I have yet to start on the fencing. It is suppose to rain this weekend so I'll likely be doing it in the rain on Saturday evening. Sat and Sun evenings are the only time I still have daylight when I get home to see what I'm doing.

    I finished the tree stand last night so that is one less responsibility I have to worry about. Got in the house and the wife and daughter are looking at me with smirks as if my day is not done. I see the big box sitting on the love seat with a snowman atop it. Yep, they left half the tree decorations for me to do and behold they all go around the top of the 8.5' tree. As I'm looking around I notice the house is no longer dressed with pictures and knick knacks, but now looks like Santa Claus vomited in my house. There are at least 50 santas between the LR, DR and kitchen area. I did not take a pic of the wall to my left in the dining room or the kitchen as you can imagine as much in those areas too. Now mind you, how the tree is in the pic is how I came in to find it. I thought it was done decorating and just needed me to adore the tree with the Snowman topper, oh how wrong can one man be. I added at least another 50-60 pieces of ornament to the tree before they said it was good.





    Merry Christmas everyone.

    Hey all sorry I have been so MIA life has been busy and just plain depressing. Bre has had some pretty big emotional and some behavioral issues. And we have been trying to help her get past some of it.

    Ranch is good just VERY COLD. It was 9* at 6 am and we may get to 15* if we are lucky. I actually blanketed my 2 for the first time ever.

    I have not even began to try to catch up. And I am very sorry for not being here.

    Please keep my Daughter in your thoughts she needs so many right now.

    I hope all is well with everyone

    CS, thoughts and prayers your way. . Come here to 'get away from it all'. You know we are here for you!!

    It was 57*when I left for work this morning?so decided to leave at a decnt time and get a ride in, it felt good to in the saddle. I hadn't planned in riding, so ii didn't pack proper clothes in my 'to go' I ended up riding in muck boots and athletic pants. Can I tell you....I have never been so comfortable!!! I think I might ride in those again!

    My mom had to have one of her goats put down to night. he had urinary track stones. She had the vet attempt surgery, but he was just too bad. I am so glad I have been collecting pics of her goats for her. One of her presents will be a homemade calendar from Walmart with various pictures on it. I'll dedicate an entire month to dierksy.

    Another huge winter storm coming our way. Looks like freezing rain and snow is to hit early in the morning. Could be an interesting commute.

    Have a good night everyone!

    Our pellet stove stopped working yesterday! We have the propane heater going for now-will have to go to town to get the empty one filled-$$-Ouch! We talked to the guy who sold it to us-it is probably fixable, but we have to tear everything apart to get to the part that isn't moving - from the back & the smokestack & everything-what a mess that will be. And we put up the Christmas tree yesterday & it will probably be in the way. Freeze warnings are all over in this area-we'll be warmer next Thursday-hurry Thursday.

    HP-congrats on the saddle-Is it "new-new-or new to you?

    NM-I have cold weather gear, but it's hard to force myself to go out. I put so many layers on-it's hard to move. I really can't stand the cold.

    CCG, the weather yesterday was NICE! I was able to ride in normal clothes...and ended up in the athletic pants. Ya know the kind that go swish, swish? Bball players wear them a lot. Anyway...they are comfy to ride in!!

    As far as warm gear. I don't like the cold either, but if I can dress for it...I will go out and RIDE!! :) I bought myself specific riding snow pants...but found I prefer to ride in my bibs that I bought to muck the barn in! I bought them last year at TS. I love that they cover the majority of my body, so I stay VERY warm!

    I saw some nice winter riding boots on Stateline Tack last night....considering getting those! I liked the way my muck boots were high on my legs when I rode yesterday!! I get all these alerts on my phone...and then NOTHING! Ugh!

    The roads were only wet this morning.....I hate how the WC makes ALL weather a catatrophy!

    Roadyy - that tree looks great! Mine has been up for a week with no decorations. Maybe tonight...

    Critter Sitter - sending good thoughts for a re and hoping she finds her happy place again very soon.

    NickerMaker - how is your husband doing? I hope everything is OK.

    It is c c cold here! It's been -30 all day which feels like -40 with the wind. It's supposed to get down to -38 tonight plus add wind chill onto that too. My daughters mare is blanketed but still shivering so we put her in the barn tonight. Normally she is anxious about being inside, but today I think she is grateful to get out of the bitter cold. Sam is so hairy that he's probably warm outside, but he's in as company for Sally. Koolio is also blanketed at he stable but outside with the pasture horses. Hopefully he is warm enough. I'll see him tomorrow and hopefully get a ride in. That's the beauty of having him at the stable with a heated indoor arena!

    I went for a hearing assessment yesterday for the chronic ringing in my ears and basically my hearing sucks for a relatively young person. The long and the short of it is that I would benefit from a hearing aid. I tried one for about an hour and it was magical. The downside is that they are very expensive and my benefits only cover about half. I'm not sure what to do. I've lived without one for quite a while, but I am also finding it exhausting to hear and it isn't going to get better without hearing aids.

    Anyhow, I hope everyone stays warm and healthy and has a great weekend!
