Happy 26th birthday to lovely, goofy Isabel!
Say, hey! Today is my best friend's birthday! We've been best friends since we were two. We've never had another best friend and don't remember not being "us." That's a few months shy of 70 years now! Izzy is in good company!

We get together every year since I moved to Florida. She's the one in the middle! The other dear darling lady is our other close childhood friend.

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

Sorry about what you are going through with your dog.

Happy Birthday to Izzy, and it warms my heart to see older horses that haven't been discarded but are being well taken care of and living with their horse family and human friends.

I just want to say I believe you are that kind of person, and so I know your issues with the dog have not come about easily and you are only struggling with dealing with the dog because it is exhausting and you have not been able to find answers to help him.

In my mind, it is similar to having a mentally ill older relative and wishing you could ask them to live with you, but knowing it would be impossible, so they have to go into a facility (personal experience). For humans, there is less of a way out for suffering, but we can help animals more easily sometimes.

That's very kind of you @gottatrot . Sort of brought tears to my eyes, if I'm honest. We all do the best we can, right?

We had a decent warmup yesterday so I did some spring cleaning in the pasture but ran out of time to ride (the road seems clear of ice though, so I should be able to get in the saddle again this week). The girls lounged around in the sun while I started scraping out the paddocks.





The last week has been a bit like an archeological dig- first the top several inches of snow melted, exposing the February ice layer. Then that melted, and we were back to snow. Now that's gone, and we're at the January ice layer. Today is supposed to be 56*F/13*C, so I hope that knocks the ice way back. We can't see the ground yet, but I bet we will by the end of the week.

Actually had a bit of a scary moment last Wednesday doing night check, when I took a bad fall on the ice. I was like a cartoon character slipping on a banana peel- my foot hit black ice and I toppled over straight backwards. I caught myself on the palm of my right hand (it turned an interesting shade of purple) and really bruised my tailbone. But the worst part was feeling and hearing the back of my head bounce off the ice. I think I may have had a mild concussion, but the symptoms passed in a couple of days so I consider myself lucky. Have I mentioned how much I hate ice!?
