Not sure at this point if the photo worked. I know it is adding insult to injury considering all the snow and cold you are having, but to get even you can make a snowman make believe its that person from down under. and take out your frustrations.

Its the first day of a new year 09-00am and look at the clear blue sky. No wind. I had to bury a sheep this morning she had reached the end of her days. Her name was screwed and now she is. But she provided us with many a good lamb roast over the years. I buried her next to one of her old boy friends, Shag.

Bugs has become very inquisitive while digging the hole, he supervised, his head right in it giving it the once over and while I was filling it in as well.

Now the weather is awsome and she who must be obeyed is feeling like she might ride Kate. (her back is feeling little better) its breakfast and off riding we go.
Have a great day all, even if it is cold and windy curl up with someone or a horse that you love and chill out.

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

[QUOTE=Ladytrails;1822192]Stan, these are beautiful pictures. So gorgeous....

I went out to bring up the 31 year old and 33 year old horses out of the pasture into warm stalls. Hubby put hay and water out for me earlier this morning while I was sleeping in,

O/K i'll bite. Hubby had put hay and water out for me earlier this morning while I was sleeping in.

I have often prepared Roslyn's breakfast while she sleeps in. But I am not brave enough to present what you husband has. I take my hat off to him and trust he survives the day.

I would replace the hay with eggs on toast and the water for coffee, But come to think about it, it would be a conversation starter though some what heated. Its a thought. Not sure if she would see the funny side though

In Northland in August at its coldest in the morning about 10 degs. We ride all year round. It can be crisp but in the forest its great.

Middle of the North Island and the south island there will be snow but mostly up high. The winds will be starting to come in, however we often get 4 seasons in one day, this country is noted for it. To day its great but it could be raining by lunch then fine again. It can get humid this time of year.

I bought the saddle!!! Woohoo!!!

Isabella is so difficult to fit. Her withers are so high but a friend had given me a Corrector pad and once I played around with the shims, we found a combination that made the saddle fit really well. Her ears perked up and she trotted off so pretty. She didn't even try to go back to the hitching post.

The lady I bought it from used English leathers and stirrups on it so the Aussie leathers and strirrups were still in bubble wrap. She gave me the girth as well. It is prety worn but will work until I get a new one. The English style rigging will take some getting used to but OMG it is such a comfy ride.

Here is a pic. It isn't situated correctly because I had already untacked her when I remembered I wanted to take a picture so I just threw everything back up on her. I think I really got a good deal!

Oh, and Grace.....next Sunday evening will be interesting!! Will definitely be watching the game. May the best team win!
I do think the Seahawks have cooler uniforms!

Happy New Year everyone. Stan, soak up that sun for all of us!
