It looks like all my warm weather is trying to move out. The wind is blowing in a cold front. 70 degree Christmas can be depressing anyway.

Hi all!

So yesterday I was snowed in and couldn't get to my lesson, was so bummed! Made it out today, and had the best lesson so far. Kes was collected almost the entire time, working from her hind, and listening to very subtle aids. I was smiling almost the entire lesson, until my trainer asked me to drop my irons and sit the trot...ahmygawd....my abs and thighs started to burn! I did do it though without too much complaining. I'm pretty darn happy with my little dressage horse today. I'm feeling really good about where we'll be for show season.

Hunter - hope Hunters leg heals quick!! Poor pony!

CW - did you get snow last night? Hows the dog research going?

Token- Get the wife her new SADDLE. You did ask for suggestions.... Your xmas day plans sound perfect. 80 degrees and a ride on the beach. Ahhhhhhh

All you in the southern states....so jealous of your warm weather. I need some sunshine!!

Maisie, keep up the news on the lessons - we enjoy it! I'm gratified to know someone else thinks there are 30 things to keep track of at once. I'll be glad if I ever get some muscle memory of what the right things are to do!

Grace, I'm so happy to hear how pleased you are with Kes' progress. Sounds like you're getting a workout, too!

Montana, CW - we got your snow -- part of it, at least. It was 45 MPH winds here overnight and 30 MPH all morning. Ice and sleet underneath the snow which - even though it was only a few inches - drifted enough to keep me from being able to get out of my driveway and going to work today. So, working from home on my laptop and dealing with internet connection issues. I'd rather be at the office! Just glad we were safe - it is the first snowstorm of the year and people in KC lose their minds with the first snow.

Stan - Enjoy the ride and buy the saddle. Or buy the saddle and then enjoy the ride. Which do you think might work out best for you in the long run? Now I'll put myself in the corner....

Happy holidays, all!

We've had a few days of cold & I am so done w/it. And it's not even officially winter yet. Warm thoughts to all & Merry Christmas!
Foot massage sounds like it has prospects. I like he way you think, no money involved and a short amount of time which gets me more riding time and closer to a new saddle for Bugs. Great thinking.

Well its the evening of the 21st December 2012 and no great event has happened and of course if the world was going to go up in smoke we in Nz would see it first. But no, so its riding as usual. Tomorrow the ladies have a pre xmas ride and a lunch after. I'm putting on my best tights, chaps, chaffs or what ever they are called and joining them. Show Bugs off.

He follows me around and gets up to no good. We had a broken plastic water pipe in the tree line of his paddock and of course a considerable wet area. While fixing it I called him over. What a guilty look and movment he displayed, had to laugh. He broke it no doubt, Looks like he picked up the pipe and it seperated at a joint and of course most likely sprayed him with water. Now he has another trick I will have to deal with.

2 days in a row, I could get on!!! The snow didn't amount to much so far....the grass isn't covered yet. I think it slowed down because they changed the forecast to 4-6" tomorrow. Seems they never get the forecast right, which is a pain when you're trying to mow hay.
CW, I'm thinking about getting a new pup, too. I love the German Shepards, but I'll probably go smaller. Several of my friends have heelers and they really like them. I want something to take camping and stay in the trailer with me. I have a 4' short wall so there's not much room. We have a rat terrier, but she gets car sick and doesn't like horses. I'd like to get a rescue.... maybe something with terrier in it. They are really neat little dogs.

Snce we are talking about dogs....

Meet Wyatt, my Pembroke Welsh Corgi. He has had his picture taken with Santa every year of his life. This is his 8th time! Since my hubby and I don't have children, we tend to treat our dog and horses like our children and spoil them just a little!
