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!
