Okay, it can stop snowing anytime soon!

Saddle Up 2016


I do love winter and I do love snow (am/was a skier), but not on this ‘sloped... 4x4 driveway… studded-tires-only-to-get-up’ property. Plus, my horse trailer is buried… so much for heading out in the spring.

Gotta love my “BAY” babes (as seen on my Facebook posts) – have you horse folks noticed, no matter the weather, our horses seem to prefer standing out in the inclement weather, versus standing ‘dry’ under cover, what the? If anyone has a theory… please explain.

I just finished entering all the new dates for the ‘What’s Happening? Let’s Go!’ calendar – WOW – so many things happening… date overload! Remember, the entire year is printed on our website – take a look-see!

See you all out and about…
