    Good morning!

    Several horses left in Sept/Oct so Barn Owner removed the 8 temporary stalls in the barn addition. That left a smallish covered area that will allow for basic ground work in inclement weather - definitely better than nothing! I could probably hop on at a walk to practice turning, stopping & backing if I REALLY wanted to, but it's not technically big enough for riding. Cash got a good grooming session last night and then we practiced showmanship (inside!) for a bit.

    Man, I envy those of y'all that have access to something indoors. Our place is still sooooo muddy, not to mention the horses. I would probably break my curry comb on them right now. LOL! And it's too cold to hose them down. I don't like winter time. :(

    Man I envy those of y'all that have access to something inside. Our place is still sooooo muddy not to mention the horses. I would probably break a curry comb on them at the moment. The clay around here is just so slimy when wet and pure concrete when it dries. They sound like they are wearing beads in their mane when they shake it. And it's too cold to hose them down. I don't like winter time. :(

    Hello my fellow Texans! I am loving this weather but probably wouldn't if I didn't have a place to ride inside. I am so thankful to have it:)

    Hope everyone has a blessed day!

    It is chilly! We're going camping again this weekend. I have a feeling we're going to freeze our butts off. Again.

    This cold weather is making for some naughty ponies. Bubba was NOT cooperating with me last night while I wa trimming his feet. Hopefully Henny is a little more cooperative with me tonight. Gotta get their manicures in before I leave for the weekend! :)

    mamakatja I was thinking the same thing my self. Both Stallions have mud up to their ankles except in a couple of dry spots. Like You I hate winter.
    Unlike kctop I have not where to ride indoors. I envy her today.

    The farm house is not even close to being renovated. The contractor keeps finding things that need to be replaced. The cost keep going up and up.
    I know I should not complain too much the house was built in 1850's and only updated twice when electricity and running water were added. Shalom

    DBA that sounds so nice, renovations-expense and all. I am very fond of old buildings and the history that goes along with them. Is this a place that has been in the family for a long time?

    It's friday now! Woke up about 4:15 this am, was just getting back to sleep, when some a$$hole drove by and layed (laid?) on his horn going by the house! Didn't get back to sleep until DH left the house at 6. I hate mornings like that

    That land has been in my family for generations. Since 1837 the house was b uilt in 1857 as a wedding present to my great great great grandmother.
    Electricity was added in 1938, indoor plumbing in the 1950's, and county water in 1989.
    When it was a cotton plantation it was over 5,000 acres.
    I am proud of the place. Shalom
