Not sure if you can see them without zooming in, but I couldn't get any closer with my phone camera due to sinking in the soft ground and not having my water boots on.

You can see the pond over the fence in the first pic and she is using this flooded part of the pasture as a kiddie pond to keep them safe. She will occasionally bring them just over the fence and into the pond for short amounts of time.

Hope everyone is doing well...
Stan I hope your Ride went well .. We are planning a nice ride today after I get off work.

Hunter I am glad your arm is healing and Hunter is doing better after the Chiro visit.
CW how are you doing?

Roadyy you make miss home with all your nice pictures of the ducks and such.

All of you with snow just think of how lush the pastures will be. We have sunshine today and the rain melted the snow. But they are talking another storm next week.

I am getting pretty nervous about our move of the horses at the end of the month..
I hope I am making the right decision.

I actually keep mosquito tablets in all the standing water spots on the property. That is the biggest spot outside of the pond and gets a couple of tablets to hinder the mosquito larva.

Got my fingers crossed as I talked to the wife in the couple who owns the property behind me and she is willing to let me use her pastures for my horses on a month to month basis. She asked me to discuss it further with her husband so I left him a voicemail regarding it last night, but haven't heard from him yet. Going to call him a little later. They are putting the home and land on the market so it could be a long term deal or short depending on how the market is for their setup.

There is a total of 11 pasture acres split into 3 sections. The middle pasture has a run in type setup with 2 stalls then a hallway separating the stalls from the tack/feed room. It also has a covered area at the other end of the hallway so they can get out of the rain without going into the stalls. There are several ponds stocked for my enjoyment as well.. I'll take some pics this afternoon of the setup and will likely load them on Monday for our viewing pleasure.



I will be curious about adjusting the feeding once they are on the larger grazing areas so I guess I can post pics of the pastures and the grass that is on them in the health section for opinions.

This is too true to be funny.
The next time you hear a politician use the word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about whether you want the 'politicians' spending YOUR tax money.

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of its releases.

A.. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

B. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

C. A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.





D. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.

E. A billion Dollars ago was only 13 hours and 12 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.





There was no:
Tobacco Tax
Corporate Income Tax
Sales Tax
Council Tax
Unemployment Tax
Fishing Licence Tax
Petrol/Diesel Tax
Alcohol Tax
G.S.T.
Property Tax
Vehicle Licence / Registration Tax
ACC Tax



Carbon Dioxide Tax


STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

None of these taxes existed 60 years ago and our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world. Our pound was worth more than the Australian pound, was equal to the pound sterling and was worth more than four American dollars.

We had absolutely no national debt.
We had the largest middle class in the world. Mum stayed home to raise the kids, Dad and teachers were allowed to discipline kids.
A criminal’s life was uncomfortable.

Boat people were kids sailing on our lakes and harbours.



What the hell happened?
'Political correctness', politicians or both?


I hope this goes around New Zealand and beyond at least 100 times.

Now off to shed a tear for what was, then clean the paddocks of horse poo.

Hi all I have just tuned into Fox news and the weather forcast for parts of the USA looks like you may have to batten down the hatches.

Stop the rain dance, its not working over hear, but seems to be in your part of the world. I give thanks to those that doned the grass skirt and ran around looking like idots trying to get rain to fall in NZ. I didn't do it myself.

My area in NZ is looking like getting some rain around Monday or Tuesday there is a low pressure area in the coral sea heading our way. With luck some rain.

Cheers all and look after yourselves with the new snow on its way.

Snow, freezing rain, ice pellets then rain came yesterday. It's wild how so many different types of precipitation can occur during the same day. Wasn't as bad as they predicted but still looks like a winter wonderland again. By the way Stan I personally hate taxes! Especially paying more after the year's over. Hate doing my income tax return-it's due at the end of the month. Yeah! Hate the GST-Thank you, Brian Mulroney (the lovely PM who who started it all, I will never forget you!). I think this weather is really affecting me negatively. ARRGGGHHH!

Hi all!

Stopping in to share my day at the show...was sooooo cold all day and it snowed on the way there and the way home! Where is Spring??

We entered 6 classes and placed in all. Two firsts, a third, two fourths and a fifth. All were big classes and I'm super proud of what Kes and I accomplished today. We completely clicked as a team, and it feels wonderful.

The biggest accomplishment of the day though was that I hauled my own horse to and from the show. All by myself....and Kes once again had no trailering issues. I think we have both conquered our fears of the trailer!
