    We had a bit of snow earlier-I'm keeping the fire going, but it's only 50 in the house. I'm bundled in layers-this winter thing is not fun. I don't know how those of you that are really in a cold belt actually survive.

    Had to get on the road pretty early today but went to the barn for a quick snow ride - I love riding in the snow, it's so relaxing. We even did a short canter up a soft grassy slope. Fun!

    We had a day in the 40's....the weather man called it the "warm before the storm." Supposed to snow all day tomorrow and into Tuesday. Good thing is that we had a good deal of melt today. The bad news is that what is left will make for a nice icy layer under the snow tomorrow.

    STAN!!! We need more pictures of your tropical paradise...if we can't BE where it's warm and sunny, we can at least DREAM about it by proxy!

    Woohoo! So excited. I am meeting someone at the barn tomorrow that is bringing an Aussie saddle to see if it fits Isabella!!!

    I put an ad on VirginiaEquestrian.com saying I was looking for an Aussie saddle and within a few hours, she emailed me. She lives less than 5 miles from the barn and the pics of the saddle look great. And she is only asking $175. If this works out, I will be extremely happy. I have wanted an Aussie saddle for a while...just to have something "different" to ride in once in a while.

    If it works out, I will be posting pics of Isabella sporting her new saddle tomorrow night. Crossing my fingers. Can you tell I am excited???

    Jfmnyc....riding in the snow is something I am looking forward to doing! We had no snow at all last year.

    Hope everyone had a great day today!

    I am gearing up to watch the Washington Redskins/ Dallas Cowboys football game! Big Redskins fan here. It's fun to watch them actually win some games. It's been a while. :)

    Here is a photo of the beach, my ride did not go quite as well as expected no issues only the weather falling apart within a couple of hours of the photo. Never mind I have two days off and will get some photos. The weather man has promised calm weather. The trailer loading went well though with both horses. I'm pleased with that and Bugs seems to be settling more. Not snorting at every thing.

    For those that do not live near an ocean the two shots are of the beach just down the road and one of our riding areas. You can see a tractor and car also bods in the water surfcasting the tractor is my neighbours and he has launched his boat. Fish for tea.

    This part of the beach is called Omamari. The total length is 60 miles and is drivable at low tide in a 4X4 a quad or horse. One has to be careful as it is designated a road and the hoons come out to play. No police on this road.

    My ride on new years day will have a few photos so ill post more. Just to warm you all up.

    Its 6 hours to new year so I guess I'll get to see it first.

    Nice photos Stan, but you need a translator. What's a hoon?

    A hoon is a lout, or a person in charge of a vehicle with little regard for others, an idiot behind the wheel, They generally get into trouble with the law. They often die young, the cause, a car wreck and the sad part is they take innocent bystanders with them.
