Corgi,
Looks like you're having a great time! That's what it's all about.

Stan are you still in your corner?

I got 4 new barn kitties this week:) feral mom and her 3 half grown kittens needed rehoming. The best part is they come already spayed/neutered and vaccinated. Just have to keep them in kitty condos in the feed room for a couple of weeks so they learn this is where they eat now before turning them loose.

Great first barrel run Corgi! I love western games. But, I am not loving the change in weather this week. Lots of beautiful leaves falling...how sad. High was 3C this past Friday and was snowing-brrrr. Hard to believe that earlier this week, maybe say Tuesday, it was hot enough for myself and my horses to sweat. Gotta love Canada. Rain has started tonight. Yippee! More horses with rain rot...Sadly, the great summer we had seems to be a fading, distant memory. Still, I can dream about the magical snowy rides to come this winter and hitching my Canadian mare up to the sleigh.

Corgi - they say the Canadian is one of the founding breeds to the Morgan. They are pretty rare, and so gorgeous!

Corgi looks like you had so much fun! I can't wait to do that with Hunter!

My BO/Friend/farrier/trainer has a Canadian Percheron cross. She is gorgeous and she was bred to a friesian. You should see her son!!!

What a weekend, my daughter came to visit, I was terrified for her to drive the highway here. They actually have a tv show called Highway to Hell about the Coquihalla Highway. She made it safely here on Friday, brought her car over on Sat morning and we went and put new snow tires on it for her. 4 hours later...

I was going to drive her home today but I didn't relish driving in the pouring pouring rain for almost 5 hours each way. That highway can get nasty. So we put her on a plane home. Needless to say I only got to see Hunter for about half an hour this weekend. Then I had to drive hubby to the airport this afternoon so am all alone again. Time for a glass of wine I think.

Oh no Hunter!!!

Glad no one was hurt. When I was in college, my parents came out and put new tires on my car and had it painted. A tree fell on it the next week and totaled it. The insurance company didn't take into account the new tires or paint. :(

Have that glass of wine. You deserve it!

In the corner. No I escaped in the early hours, freedom.
Stella is progressing very well almost 100 % but the boss is not looking good. The weather has been bad so no riding which poses a problem. We have the first trek the middle of November and Stella is not fit. 4 weeks to get her and me ready.

Remember that little grey ***** I mentioned a few pages back, well, it has calmed down enough for me to get a good look at it. I'm changing its name to nutless it goes to the vet next Wednesday for the operation. On the bright side it gets to keep its life. I gave Stella a good brushing a couple of days ago, she stands around 16 hands, may be a tad more and her tail just clears the ground quite impressive, but then she is my horse and that says it all.

Hey CW riding yet.

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

Hey! I am 42 and started riding seriously at age 30, I guess I belong here :)

I started out buying a horse sight unseen on the advice of a friend. Obviously this wasn't good advice for a 30 yr old whose horse experience consisted of trail rides and some rides on friend's horses as a teenager. This horse bolted with me on a trail and I lost confidence so badly that I began to actively avoid riding at all.

After a few years of messing around on horses once in a while, I finally found a good coach and a great little haflinger to lease. I developed a good seat, found that I could actually trust a horse, and my lifelong love of riding came back in full force. After months of lessons and graduating to a draft cross and then to an andalusian/percheron mare to lease, I am actually looking to add a horse to my life next Spring.
