Throw an old metal coffee can half full of 100% alcohol in there to add heat without the smell and should be nice and cozy in the winter.

30 more minutes at work then off to collect the chainsaw I bought off coworker that has only been used thrice. Then headed to the house to saddle up the boys. Daughter caught wind I want to ride this evening so she finished mucking the horse pen and broke out the curry comb and brushes to get them ready for me. I think she's bucking for a raise. What do you all think?

Roaddy, hope you got your ride in. I didn't! That's OK. I worked with both a bit, gave them a break from the blankets, with a nice neck massage. :) Took Jay for a little walk. Did the Vaseline thing on the front hooves. Seemed to work....

We get one more day of 'nice' weather, so I will make sure I get a ride in tomorrow. I don't know why, but I lose a bit of my confidence when I don't ride consistently...especially when it is cold, and the horses can tend to be frisky. So, l like to do a little ground work to make sure they will be mannerly.

YOu never know what Rainner will do....I draped the two blankets over her wall. Jays was on top. I watched her take it, bite it and try to toss it! She is so silly! If nothing else, she gives me a daily dose of giggles.

Still no babies. We have two pregnant. ONe is in need of shots of some sort to keep her standing. I think it's B complex. So we have a neighbor helping with that until we get the hang of things. The neighbor thinks anytime! YOu are right ALU....both mothers are ready to be DONE! :)

Hunter,my DH was impressed with your outhouse! LOL My FIL wife painted ivy on the outside of ours....as you can imagine....the men weren't real happy about THAT! It's supposed to be a hunting cabin! LOL She doesn't even like going up there! Hahaha Yet she painted the latrine.

Loving this new computer! WHy did I wait so long to open the box???? Afraid of the unknown...last time I bought a new one....I was on the phone with Dell for HOURS! This thing runs much like my ipad. So it makes sense to me. I LOVE electrontics!! Get that from my big brother!

OK, that's it for me...for now! Have a great night all!

I am soon to be 60 but still think like a 10 yrs old when it comes to horses! I was born an animal lover to a family that had none. My mother was raised on a farm so animals meant work to her and my dad just didn't like them. I stole and hid many cats and dogs when I was just in grade school. All the neighbor's dogs were my friend. There was a dude ranch on the other side of town that I frequented but had no money to ride. I've had cats and dogs since the first day I left home! Finally when my husband and I built our own home in 1988 I got my own horse!! A buckskin quarter horse. She was a pistol and I was the only one who could ride her. Had her for two years when I had a sever car accident and we had to sell her because she could not be trusted around my very young girls. My heart and dream was broken! An empty pasture felt so lonely so we offered a neighboring horse barn the use of it. This worked out well for a couple of years until these people went through a difficult divorce. The following summer the terribly neglected and abused filly who was to become the love that gave me courage, strength and hope came into my life! That was 22 yrs ago. My girls learned to ride and love horses through her and a companion we purchased that passed away at 30. I haven't been able to ride her much through the years but when I did, the bond and connection were magical! She is now 25 yrs old and her companion is now a feisty little mini. I cannot imagine a life without the love of our four legged friends. The emptiness would be unbearable! I have rescued many critters and placed them with some individuals who have said, "Oh no, I don't do dog, cats, etc." only to watch them discover the love and energy that only an animal can give and realize they make us better people. So here's to a Happy New Year and may God Bless all you lucky people and your special friends!
