Oh my....I can't even imagine!

The beat of my heart will always resemble the cadence of my horse.

I LOVE the Yukon! DH and I did a motorcycle trip up to Dawson City and Whitehors in the summer and loved it. He asked one of the people working there what it's like in the winter and she said, it was cold, not too many people and they played a LOT of cards. LOL! We also rode up to Alaska one year and loved that too. There is something wild, free and spectacularly beautiful about the north that draws me to it.

Corgi - I am sending out good vibes that Isabella is going to be OK. Hang in there and know we are all pulling for you and her.

Roadyy - the house and yard are looking great! Did you ever find out if there is an issue with you keeping your horses on the property?

Stan - I hope you SO is OK. It sounds like a scary situation for her. I also hope things improve between the two of you in the new year.

Nicker- love the pink zebra striped blanket! I just got a new blanket for Sally that has a detachable neck as well. It also has a heavier insulation, so hopefully it will be more comfortable than the blanket and fleece cooler we had on her before.

Hunter - it looks like you had a nice ride. I'm jealous of your lack of snow.

DH and I went out for a ski in the neighbours field today following fresh moose tracks. It was a tough slog as the snow is about 2 1/2 feet deep and even with back country skis we were sinking down over a foot. It is forcast to get up to -1 tomorrow and my daughter has the day off, so hopefully we will get out for a ride on Sam and Sally in the field and then down to the stable to ride Cheeky Pony and Koolio. Heaven knows I need the exercise to work off the Raclette supper and chocolate fondue dessert we ate tonight.

Yes Canada is a large beautiful country
Yes where Hunter and I live we get little snow

Well that feels better... I have to make a confession. I've been on a diet for 2 full months and today... I cheated.... little bit... ok, had a piece of pizza and some Hershey kisses and Japanese fried rice... Do you think my hips will spread a lot or just a few inches when I sleep tonight?
they have addressed the question on will you gain weight tonight after eating forbidden food and while answering the question trod very carfully.

I, on the other hand, will address the one no one dared. (Hold on, running off to find my pajama pants). Farmpony84 would you explain that to me please my imagination is running wild and I can't sleep at night.

SWMBO is riding again today. Well I think she is, and is O/K no big bruse so I think she was shoved out of the way more than kicked, Lucky. My time with Buds was short but it was time. More tomorrow.

Cheers to all and good to hear every one is doing O/K Nickers give my best to Scott.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

Ladona, I hope everything comes out ok with Isabella. That can be very scary, especially when you can't be there with her.

Tracey, we got a notice from the city ordinance officer the other day. We will have to apply for a variance on the property to hopefully get approval to keep the horses on site. It will cost $300 to apply for it and still could be told to move them. I contacted a realtor about a 3.44ac lot across the main road from us, only separated by the the main road and the guy we are buying the house from, about leasing that property to keep the horses on. It is zoned for county and therefor can have horses on it. I'm waiting on him to hear back from the owner on yes or nor and how much if yes.

MN17, it started raining on us Tuesday night and will be here through this evening. Then the temps are going to plummet from 56* low to 30* tonight and 33* tomorrow night. I think I am going to run by TSC and grab blankets for the boys since they have no shelter to get out of the rain and don't want to put them through the cold tonight while being soaked from 2 days of rain.

Stan, glad she is only bruised and able to ride again. Hope she will apply that same work through the bruise mentality with you and get back in the ride.


Thank you for all the compliments on the house and property. I know I told TJ I would be slowing down since I don't have the tractor, but I really despise sitting around all day on my day off and if I don't get started when I get up or shortly after then I basically nap all day then feel terrible for several days afterwards.
