    Yeah, I would rather the dog sees a rider & horse as a friend with really good treats instead of an enemy that wants a fight...

    Hmmmmm. Kill him with kindness. Might be a good idea. One thing good about the dog; it stays home. It never wanders up here.

    We are going to repair an old dry lot that we can call the old retired horses that are keeping us from easily riding our old trails. We plan to fix the lot and start feeding them in there. Then on days we plan to ride, they will be easy to keep put up so that we can ride through their pasture unharassed and access our other trails. Clay doesn't mind getting off and opening gates, so I think that this will be a good plan. These trails are all on our property, so there are no dogs, no trucks, no hunters, no anything other than wildlife.

    Fight? You put that full strength ammonia on the end of his nose and in his eyes and the next time he sees you he'll run and hide, cowering, hoping you don't do it again.....

    Why do you think a dog only fools with a skunk one time?

    Sometimes I wish that I didn't like this person. Her husband, who is as sweet as can be, is just too irresponsible to keep him up. She works all the time and is most likely not aware that he is not doing the right thing. I need to try to talk to her in person, not through her husband.

    It seems to me that maybe the neighbor needs to worry a little more about keeping good relations with Celeste

    It seems the more we bend over backwards for people the more they take advantage. My grandma used to say that "no good deed goes unpunished"!!

    Celeste you can borrow my pit. She's sweet as can be unless her ponies are threatened, then you'd better run fast because she doesn't mess around. She's got good recall so once she's taken care of the problem she's an angel at your side again.

    We got three feet of snow up here. Supposed to be 18 inches but there were 60 mph winds. We lost power Friday afternoon and it probably won't be back on till Wednesday. Poor Bloo had to get locked in the barn Friday and Saturday, he wasn't a happy camper but a tree fell through his shed sometime Friday night so I'm glad BO thought to bring him in. No riding for a few days. We're working on digging the barn out first.

    We got very lucky here with the storm. Got something like 6-8 inches of snow, but the wind was very strong so it drifted badly, so hard to be sure of amount (some places are almost bare, some have knee-deep drifts). No trees down or other damage from the wind, power stayed on. So all things considered, it was just annoying.

    I haven't been around to post as we hosted a big dinner party Saturday night for a hunting club DH belongs to. Of course no piddly snowstorm was going to stop these people, so we spent the day cleaning and prepping. Dinner itself was a lot of fun. Ate too much, was entertained by all the stories of the one that got away, and stayed up too late.

    Yesterday, after spending the morning dealing with a family member's broken furnace (DH does heating/ac), we got the ponies out. The weather was lovely: 30 and sunny and only a hint of a breeze. You could almost feel spring in the air and Dream is starting to shed!!

    I am not sure what it is about riding across unbroken snow, but its almost magic. The horses felt great and I think they had just as much fun as we did.

    So Bella and me did the 50 miler at Pow Wow and we got 1st place with a time of 4 hours and 12 minutes and we also won Best Condition!!! Yay!!

    Then on Saturday I rode Rossi in the 25 miler. I rider optioned at 14 miles bc she just did not feel right. The vets could see a little something, but not enough to pull me. But I knew she was not 100 % so no reason in making something small into something big. But she did very good for her first ride.
