One more....love the color of the blankets against the while snowy background....

Oh, speaking of oictures...I finally finished the calendar of pictures for my mom. All year I took pics of her goats, and I made a collage into a calendar from Walmart. It turned really cute if I say so myself....she cried...so I know I did my job. I dedicated one page to the goat she just lost. She really cried then! Ahh, yes, love when I can evoke emotions!

Oh soon, babies will be arriving!!! She has two bred. Pics of course will follow. As per the vet last night....they should arrive this weekend!!

Roadyy - no worries. The cold is on its way back to us. After two days of freezing rain, temps are slated to drop down to -30 something again. Driving is awesome... NOT!! The good news is that it is not as cold as the prairies where Winnipeg (AKA Winterpeg) is now boasting colder temps than on Mars. Sorry it is so cold where you are. It sure seems to be a brutal winter everywhere...

HappyPlace - our pole barn is 36 x 36 and 10' high. If we had a camper to store, we would have made it 12' high and build a lean to on one side. This is what our friends did, but their barn is 40 x 60 and mostly shop.

Nicker - I love the winter pictures of your horses. They do seem happy in their blankets. I got my daughters mare, Sally, a new blanket with a hood that we will put on her tonight before the mercury drops. She has trouble staying warm even when blanketed so I am hoping the extra thick insulation and the hood will help.

Celeste - very cool story about your mom. She sounds like quite the lady

I don't know how 'mature' I am (best ask my DH that one), but since I turned 40 a few months ago, maybe I should jump in and join this thread? New members welcomed?

Mature is a relative term as you will find as you hang around here ............

So glad Isabella is ok. How worrying. Love the barn. So jealous. I would love to look out my window and see Scotty every day. I do get to do that for a few weeks when we take him up to our property. Nothing better than waking up to seeing his face and have him nicker for his breakfast

Hunter, that is how my hubby feels. He has not had to take care of horses before but recently said that they only way we would have horses is if we could keep them on our own property so that we could interact with them every day. I of course, took that to mean, "start figuring out how we can get the property next door and build what we need for our horses"! LOL

Right now, I ride a friend's horse that lives 15 minutes from me in addition to the therapy horses, who are about 35 minutes away. I would dearly love one of my own again. The down side is that I don't really like always riding alone. I have always been at big show barns with all my buddies around me. Hubby hasn't ridden since he was a kid. He's a big guy at 6'7. I did find a lovely 18.5 hand percheron baby sitter type horse on craigslist.... All this time cooped up in the house is not good for my active mind LMAO.

I ride by myself a lot too. Hoping more people come to trail ride as we have fantastic trails right off the property. Sadly put of the 6 horses at the barn none trail ride. We used to have 28 and still it was hard to find someone to ride with. Scotty and I have fun by ourselves though. I took today off as Monday everyone will be back at office and the sheet will hit the fan. I am off to the barn to see if we can do something with Scotty's paddock as it is a mucky mess that smells like a sewer. My friend is coming to ride Scotty as he needs a bit of arena work.

Of course you are welcome here, however, since you have just turned 40 that places you in the position of being one of the younger ones and of course capable of fetching the coffee from time to time. I have mine white with two and I like it hot.

As for maturity, that is a state of mind at the time and dependant on what additive you have in the water bottle you are sipping from. I would say the only person who acts their age would have to be me. Again Welcome.
