Yesterday brought some surprises. It had rained most of the night; was 41 degrees when we opened the kitchen at 6:30 am. By 7:00 the rain had turned to snow and guests started heading out right after breakfast to beat the roads. Good thing Mrs. Mom and DH got out ahead of the storm; they might have decided to get 'snowed in', not that we would have minded. We had such a great time with them and the BrownEyedCowGirls here this weekend. By the way DH, we had 23 degrees and 5 new inches of snow by evening feeding time. We could be in trouble again (from the local animal rights people) because our horses again have inches of snow on their backs, and ice dred-locks - but not a shiver among them. In fact, they are doing the normal racing madly and slipping in the muck (somewhat like school kids in the season's first real snowfall). They must be trying out their new feet!
Thanks again for working on our guys' feet-teaching us what to look for and how to start our trims. Will be anxiously awaiting more lessons. I went over the videos GunDiva did and was very happy to see how well some of them came out. I was also delighted to see Meg and Jesse cavorting around the meadow in one of the videos. It's so good for Jesse to learn that its OK to have fun at faster speeds. I've kept her on such a tight rein when it comes to moving out, that I love to see her be able to experience the fun of it. Thanks so much to both Meg and Mrs. Mom for 'exercising' my mustangs. Any time any of you want to come back and ride, you may use them...and I can get pretty picky about who gets to take them out!
I can hardly wait for more stories to come out about the ride....HINT, HINT.
