Thanks, folks! TGIF~!!

Nasty cold evening here after work and I'm in and out of the cold all day for work, so I guess I'm staying put with my two aussie mix pound puppies, instead of going out to where Journey's boarded tonight. She lives 10 minutes from me at a boarding/lesson/guided trail riding ranch. She is pasture boarded with shelter, but she's so tough, you rarely ever find her in the sheds. Tomorrow's supposed to be warmer, but rainy. We'll just have to spend time loving on each other in the morning. Sunday afternoon--sunny and 45. Me, Journey, and saddle for sure.

It's been a nasty, wet winter for riding so far here in my neck of the woods. How about where you all are?

Welcome to the forum!

It's been a strange winter of ups and downs here, bi-polar almost. We get snow & cold, then back up to spring like temps, repeat. We're about 10 degrees today with 6" of snow forecasted, then back up to almost 50 on Sunday.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Welcome to the forum Eagle Child! I'm also on the other side of 50, and loving life and my horses!

Winter is off here in Maine too. We've had a fairly mild one, but now have ice under fluffy snow, not a good combo. So, spending bonding time instead of riding time with my two.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".

Lots of bonding time this sloppy winter, for sure. <3 I have as much fun hanging out with my barn pals, working and learning about ground work as I do riding. It's all good.

I have to say, this place is pretty wonderful. I've just spent the past 2 hours reading old threads. I'm glad to be here. When I get my wits gathered enough someday, I'll post our experiences.

In the mean time, I'll be digging for gold around here. ;)

Our winters are much the same as our summers only a bit colder - it rains.. alot :)

I'm convinced that the only item of clothing we change for the seasons is the weight of our jackets.

Thank you all for the great welcome! Wow, ice storm last weekend was freaky. I hear tell that Journey actually spent part of it in the shed. Going soft on me.

Finally thawed out enough for me to make it out there Sunday afternoon. All the trees were still ice coated, and there were some slippery patches underfoot, but every single boarder was there! We took turns exercising our steeds in the covered round pen. Woohoo! Felt so good to be there.

Today it was in the 60's and windy! Bipolar is a real good description!

I put some pictures of Journey over here...She's about right in girth this winter...was on the chubby side last summer...LOL.
