Denise you and your family will stay in my prayers even through the last day. I am glad you are so excited about have the new trailer and expect to see some true QOS touches added to it when we see the next pics.
I have no more clues about the icy weather since moving to Florida so I can only hope all of you who do have to deal with it stay safe and keep your attention focused on the day.
Roaddy, we occasionally get icy weather here in southeast Texas and even some snow. I would love to ride Biscuit in a little snow
My cousin came by to see the trailer awhile ago. I left my sister's house so I could show it to her and to feed my poor husband a hot meal. Cousin and her hubby really liked it. This was the most time I have spent checking it out since I got it. It is insulated from nose to tail and I definitely could tell. It is 38 degrees with a wind chill of 25 here today. Standing in the box even with the back doors open I could tell the insulation was working!!!
I want these for my new trailer-check these out - a palomino and a bay. What more could I want?
This weekend was the Old Dominion holiday party and awards banquet. DH and I drove down to Virginia Friday, stopping at several tack stores along the way. Got lucky and found something good in every place we stopped! I am so spoiled to have a spouse who is happy to shop in such places.
The holiday party was a lot of fun. DH and Sultan got their OD Triple Crown award. Its such a fun group to spend time with.. even if sometimes you aren't sure who you are talking to at first people people are clean!
(BTW, that is Mandy Taylor of Taylored Tack I am standing beside!).
We fled Virginia early this morning, as the snow/ice storm was making its way up the coast. We drove in snow to start with but quickly outran the storm. Got home in time to get Dream and Sultan out before the weather got really ugly (not that at 23 and breezy and damp it was all that great either).
Dream's opinion of all the walking:
Hope to get her out again tomorrow night, but will depend on how much ice we get overnight.

Congratulations to PH13DH!! My horses have been stuck inside for 2 days! I have a real mess to clean up in the barn tomorrow. I think it will be too slick to ride, so that leaves the greenies out. I will try to ride on the road a bit.
We went to the cutest Christmas show last night! It was the Caveman Chorus(again), but this time at our performing arts center. Great singing, and a creative, fun MC!! Lots of cute kids in pretty Christmas clothes. I think we have talked my DH into singing with them, YAY!!
I am sorry to see your mother has past away. I know you were trying to prepare yourself for this, but we never seem to get it right, do we? I am sure there is a big part that is thankful she isn't uncomfortable anymore and is now without pain,sorrow or tears as the bible tells us.
