Weekend went really fast. Went and visited my friend Cindy at work. Then picked up my nieces dog so he could spend the night. Boy were my cats mad at me. lol They forgave me once she came and got him this morning. Had a meeting then off to the barn. Turned Jax loose in the arena. He ran and bucked up a storm. So glad he doesn't do that with me on him. Brought him in and he was like I'm good mom thank you. So after come carrots and an apple I left him to enjoy his dinner. No school this week so some days I'll have a house full. Not tomorrow so I'll go out early and see Jax. Vicki & Big Jax

yay got my Traks today. I'm going to need them. It was really nice this morning then about 2 the winds came in. So I got ready and went to the barn. When I got there all the horses were in. Wasn't sure if Jax was out. If he was he would have been wet. So I groomed him and we played with his brushes. He likes to bit them and hold them in his mouth. lol I put his medium weight blanket back on. It was damp in the barn with the temps going down to the teens I wanted to make sure he was warm. Sarah is buying hay. It looks okay. She said it had a lot of timothy in it. Seems more like straw. But, I may have seen a not so good bale. Right now we are having snow flurries and the water has frozen over. Vicki & Big Jax

Today was heaven. It made it into the high 40's. My driveway is still like glass. I went out to see Jax I cleaned his water buckets. Then I groomed him. Yay lots of hair. Spring is coming. Not sure when but its coming. We start off warm tomorrow but then the cold comes in. Jax has no blanket on but I'll go back tomorrow about 2 and put it back on. It is going from the 40's to the low teens. Then back up next week. Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Katie happy to hear from you. We have had 12" or more of snow. City came and took the snow away this morning. Which is good, we have another storm on the way. Plus my dead end street is barely big enough for two cars when roads are clear. With all this snow it was a single lane. Went out this morning and checked on Jax. He came trotting up to me. Of course, I had his treats. He looks great. Glad he was out in the big paddock. He can trot around and roll. I know there is ice under but we have so much snow it can't hurt him. Came home to clean streets and just in time here comes the snow again. So I am in for the night. Vicki & Big Jax

Oh dear, tap dancing too? How much longer till she can start driving herself places? She is busy. Keeps Mom busy too.
I know, can't believe it's fed already. We've been warmer since that cold snap in January and we've also been getting more rain the last couple of weeks, like the kind that might actually water the deep roots of trees. I'm not liking the mud, but we sure needed it. Haven't been able to horse much lately though. They've all started shedding, how about Katie? Thats gotta mean spring is on its way, right?

Hi hope you are well. My daughter lives in Portland. Just realized where you lived. I have Albany about 40 miles from me. Nice similarities. Well it was a day of being inside. Winds up to 50 mph. So I baked a pie and did laundry. City knocked on the door. One of my neighbors has frozen pipes. So they did a reading, told me to keep one of my cold water facets running. Told him no problem, I know the drill. Been here 25 years and this is about the 4th time. Better than frozen pipes. Put tape over the facet I am leaving on. That way I don't turn it off by accident. Same weather for tomorrow. Think I'll make mac and cheese. Lexie called said Jax is doing good. Nice and warm and calm. I thanked her for going above and beyond being a trainer. I really do appreciate her and Mike. Vicki & Big Jax

Hope all's well with you and your family. Did you have a good Christmas? We did, got to visit my folks as well as my sister and her hubby.
I finally got to ride Allie yesterday; it's been 3 or 4 weeks since I've been on her. That's one thing I can say about her, she is pretty much the same after several weeks with no riding, which is fortunate. We even loped a little. If she ever figures out she can relax, she has a sweet little lope. She's a fun ride.
Today is our warm day of the week, then it's supposed to drop again. Hope you stay warm and have a good friday

We got a little light rain in the afternoon yesterday, maybe a tenth of an inch, so no horse time. But I went over to a friend's house for coffee and to swap presents, and had a great visit with her and her hubby. She has horses too and shows, and also works at the same hospital as I do but on a different floor. Because we're both so busy we almost never get to visit, so I really enjoyed sitting down and talking to her.
Well, off to work and then we go down to visit my folks tomorrow, so if I don't get on HC, hope you have a very Merry Christmas.

PS. I left a poem on Allie's page, just a little Christmas
fun.

Good heavens, I'm coming to your house for Christmas, all those good homemade cookies. We're all "energy efficient" at my house (ie, fat), and I never have much time anyway, so I'll probably just make some fudge this year. But I hate my kids don't have the tradition of a lot of holiday baking.
Don't know how Erika stays so busy and happy, I'd feel very overwhelmed. Hope your week off will be relaxing and she has a good time at your parents'.
Well, have a very Merry Christmas with your family and fur babies.

Marion will have to hang a little can on Honeys collars saying "25 cent a pet or butt scratch" Honey will be rich in no time.
Our cold air and snow are coming, doing chores for a girl, who went home for Christmas, its about 1/2 way to Ladysmith. Forgot to check how long it takes from the time we leave the house. 2 horses, 2 dogs, cats, a parrot. I might bring her 2 dogs to my house. Cosmos use to be here a lot before when I took care of her horses.
Have a managram tomorrow. Spelled it wrong but sound it out. Today we got 2 loads of wood, did Angie's chores, picked up Mikey's pills, and that was about it.
Still calling for -20 for the weekend. But the snow line is coming right over us. Tristan told me 1 to 72 inches, well thats way over my head.

Hi & a vote,
My daughter is taking Cowboy to a clinic this weekend.
Below is the link to the Dan James clinic info:

However, my daughter is catching a cold, so I hope she gets better and not worse for Saturday & Sunday. At least it will be milder there in GA than here in NY! I'm wishing her to have fun with Cowboy at the clinic.

Just dropping off a quick wed morning vote.
I finally got to ride yesterday so I hopped on BJ bareback and worked on his liberty riding. He had more trouble with the maneuvers this time and I had to pick up the reins more often, but he always tries so hard. I probably just need to practice with him more. We did lope a little, which is a challenge for me bareback, lol. It was fun.
I work the next 2 days so may not be on tomorrow. If not, hope you have a great mid week.

Hi. Good to hear from you. Glad that you had a great Thanksgiving. We did too. I had to work Thanksgiving day, but was off the weekend so went down for a nice visit with my folks and my sister and her family.
Goodness, Erika is sure involved in a lot of extra activities. That's good though, sounds like she's active and healthy. It just means you're busy as her chauffeur, lol.
Assorted news here. Can't remember if I told you I finally got a used truck after nearly a year of looking. It's a diesel F250 and has been running great, so I hope to be able to do a little trail riding and maybe the occasional fun show one day. I also got talked into going solar. They reroofed the barn first and then put solar panels up yesterday. Just need the power guy to come tie them into the meter. I hope it'll be the good investment and keep me from having a power bill, like they said. The horses are doing well. I've been riding more than I did over the summer, but the holidays have kind of slowed me down.
Anyway, take care and give Katie a pat for me.

Hope some of the nice weather we had today will still be nice when it gets to you.
I hope everyone had something....more than one thing....to be thankful for. We certainly do have a lot of blessing.
Mother Nature, "finally" decided to play nice. Sunshine and warm, well, seen 37 this afternoon, and not wind.
Dinner went great, Mike peeled potatoes, turkey was done right on time 11, so it had time to stand for a bit before everyone started coming around 11:30. Dominic helped set table and put out pickles, napkins, cheese, raw veggies and dip, but he forgot the coleslaw. 2 could not make it, so Jennifer took food home to them, and enough for her and Mike for tomorrow. Still have plenty of leftovers. Total of 10, Joe brought an old guy whose land he hunts on. My Dad uses to play horseshoes with him on a league.
While Mike took his 2 o'clock nap early, I let out chickens, Lilly and guinea hens went out earlier, and so did the horses. Worked in the chicken coop, put down another bag of woodchips, and changed a few roost, set up a old pair of sawhorses, and put boards across. Hopefully, the young guinea hens will stop picking on a few chickens, if there is more room to roost. Tonight when they all came in, the hens were thanking me for not inviting them for dinner or to be dinner. :) I like my chicken and they normally die of old age. Happy Thanksgiving...so who's going shopping tomorrow....not me said the "little red hen".

Hi & a vote,
We had the strong winds here yesterday! First tiny snow of the season this morning. Really a dusting only! The Squeezy Buns horse treats have finally arrived. But Rocky might not get to try them out until Wednesday, so the suspense builds!

Well yesterday was great! We got another ride in on Ace and Gypsy. My husband rode Ace first then I rode him for a while in the round pen. Then I got on Gypsy and he rode Ace again. Gypsy wasn't wanting to do much though, we figured out her hooves may have been bothering her. The farrier just came out on Tuesday and clipped her hooves, maybe a little too short. I am at home again today, got things to do. My husband is with the horses. It's another beautiful day here. Happy Friday!

Yes I am finally back in the saddle again! I have got a few rides in recently. I am riding on Gypsy and Lucky right now. My husband is riding Ace. He wants to make sure that Ace is not going to act up or anything before I try to ride him again. We have been working all of the horses, even Susie gets lunged in the round pen and put on the walker. We saddle the rest of the horses even if they are not being ridden. I am enjoying my riding time again. Yesterday they all got carrots. I haven't been giving them their treats, I could tell they really enjoyed that. Tomorrow the farrier comes to do their hooves. Enjoy your week.
P.S. Will post a couple of new pics on Ace's page

Sorry it's been a few days. It's amazing how busy life can get! But I came by to vote for your lovely girl. I love the pictures of her in the snow.

It snowed for the first time this season today, and I can't wait to get out and ride in it! I love a good canter in the snow.

Thanks everyone so much for Susie's HOTD win! Sorry I missed it. It is such a surprise. I will have to tell her tomorrow and bring some carrots.

We are slowly getting back into riding and working with the horses again. They have had the life of leisure for about 8 months. Ace is doing really great now! He is getting so tall, he has just about caught up with Susie. They are all in good health, no problems. The weather has been really nice, getting some cooler temps. Enjoy the rest of your week!

Sorry everyone did not get a comment yesterday. Left the house around 10:30 to do shopping before meeting everyone at GrPa's Pizza to honor Dave on his birthday. Good Pizza, good company. Got back to Hawkins, to late to get home and too early for Mass/Church. So we stopped at Mom's for a quick visit. Went back today for our usually Sunday visit. Have to go back to Ladysmith tomorrow to pick up her pills. Going to be cold so she did not want to go along. This coming week temps are not going to get too high and lows, hate to say it around 0-4. Glad I have nearly everything ready for winter. Still have to figure out about where the baby guinea keets will go. Selling 4 on Tuesday, so that makes 3 plus the 9 with the Mom, thinking maybe into the water tank with a heat lamp at night. Then cover the grates with my horse blanket. Have to figure out if Mistic goes under the lean-to or not. She will only have Lilly for company.

Today I got to meet Vicki at the local 4-H show and tack sale. Got to sell some horsey items from the attic that have been collecting! It was great to meet Vicki in person since we felt so close from HC already! My car in shop not going to be ready until Monday sometime now, so down a vehicle for this weekend and about -$500 too!

Not such a bad day outside, sunny but still cold. Brought in pumpkins and squash that were hiding in the garden weeds, will have to start cooking them up and freezing the pulp soon. Walked fence, then let out the horses, fun to watch them run and kick up their heals. Mistic even enjoyed the running around. Cleaned out the chicken coop of the hay I put in about a month ago, packed it around the outside, hoping to keep out any drafts, it will also double as compost because I have flowers and sunflowers growing around the coop. Took the young chickens and put them inside the coop from their pen, had to do this after chickens were roosting....it will be surprise, surprise tomorrow morning. Went to pick up Dominic after school so he can spend the night and go with us tomorrow to GrPa's Pizza for Dave's birthday....it would be his birthday tomorrow, he passed away 5 yrs ago, but we still celebrate his birthday and eat pizza. Rich will be coming from Wausau, Tristan and Maya and can not forget baby Ryder, Joe and Holly from Phillips, and Mikey and Jennifer. Mikey did go for his appointment and they did scope(s) of his heart and will have 1 more appointment then in Dec. do "something". Long day and still would like to sort tack, but that might have to wait.

Well, I have yet to get my daughter into art lessons, shame on me. I'll work on it this weekend. What all is Erika into?
I've been able to ride more often the last couple of weeks, yay. How about you, are you able to get out to see Katie most weeks?
It's warmed back up here, 70s all week. Back to tee shirts in the afternoon. Allie got ridden in the pasture yesterday and did pretty good. I worked on trotting and then sitting down deep before flexing to a stop. She never stopped off my seat, but we did do a fair amount of trotting without disastrous results. Instead of hanging with her buddies where I work her more, she tried hanging at the gate, where I also worked her more, lol. Poor baby.
Well, hope you have a great friday.

Hi Katie, here's a vote for ya. Well started out at 48 F with tons of cloud cover, but did clear off finally around noontime with a high of 71 F degrees! I'm lovin' it! Got 6 bales of hay to the barn and did more boxes of wood for the weekend into the garage. Then headed up to Wally World food shopping and then to Lowe's for a few things for the farm. Got home and got the kids lunged and gave them lunch in the barn, still mushy out there! Honey and I then did our walk, is was so nice out! Sure wish it could stay like this the rest of the fall and winter! Marion and the blondes.

Nice to hear from you. I always worry about horses and their Mom's when they do not show up....like calling everyone in, and find out someone is missing.

Finally a day with no snow, temps were nice, and the foggy was very bad. Nice outside, and doing some work in the sheds and garage, putting all those things that I promised to put away when I was done using them. Short memory!!
Packed summer shirts and stuff away, trying to find more sweatshirts, and heavier socks. Sun just came out around 3;39, so I am heading back outside.

Yep, those years when the kids are into everything but not driving yet can be super busy. Of course, I hate when they start driving cause then you worry to death. My son is 24, and I still worry a bit every time he drives off.
Glad Katie is doing well and snug in her barn. Wow, you have a husky? My daughter loves them. I'm not sure any dog likes rain, lol.
My herd is doing well. I've been able to ride more than I was in the summer, mostly because I'm not cutting grass all the time. Allie is finally learning to listen better and I'm getting some try out of her instead of the standard "no!" I used to always get. I've been practicing riding BJ without reins since he's a slow easy ride with his heaves, gives us something easy to work on. He's doing really well, we can steer, stop, back, sidepass and even spin with almost no rein cues, just a reminder every now and then.
Well, hope your November is off to a good start.
