The snow is gone, it lasted about a couple of days. If there isn’t enough to snowmobile in or ski on forget it! A couple of the neighbor kids built a snowman, I wish I had taken a progression of pictures afterwards as he slowly got shorter and shorter until there was just his scarf laying on their lawn.
The boys went back to the stable the day we left for Florida so have been there a few weeks. I can’t tell you how many times I look out the windows to check on them in the pasture here and then remember they are up the road a couple of miles. We miss them terribly but it’s the way it has to be in the wintertime. They did go a few weeks earlier then usual due to our vacation. :o(
My sister was here visiting so we went up to see the boys, give them carrots and give them lots of hugs. This is Jon, he belongs to one of my neighbors who also boards there. He is about 20 and is a Morgan. He’s a good ole’ boy and was quite the show horse back in the day. That is Lil’ Bud in the background.
Here is Nick coming to get his treats.
Kip scratching some itchies, they all are getting so fuzzy!
I think Scooter walked up behind me and surprised me. Nick looks like he is snoozing…….. It was very windy that day, the wind comes right off the river which is at the foot of the hill.
My sister is not a horse person so it was brave of her to get in the pasture with all of them. Guess Scoot had been rolling in the mud, one of his favorite pastimes.
Just seeing all this hair makes me dread shedding season in the spring and this isn’t half of it for Kip. He gets enough hair for 5 ponies.
Isn’t he as cute as a button?!
This picture should have been cropped……ahem……
Their favorite rolling spot…….
Scoot is one big boy!
You can see the river on down behind the trees.
They can go all the way down to the river if they want but not ‘in’ the river, it is fenced off.
Lil’ Bud is getting a bit of a sway back and saggy belly but at almost 24 I think he looks pretty darn good.
I’m meeting my friend Ann this morning at the stable and we are going for a ride. I will ride Scoot and she will ride Bud. We found out last week that Scooter has no intention of going in the river! All our horses have always walked into the river when we ride to get a drink or to paw the water and get us all wet but he wasn’t having any of that!! We will ride down there again today and I’ll let him have another looksy.
Last night the Hubs and I went to a play at the Opera House. It was The Marvelous Wonderettes a show about four girls that sang in the 50’s in high school and then went on to their 10th year reunion and how they all had changed. It was all music from the 50’s and 60’s and they did a fabulous job!! There was a lot of toe tapping going on! At intermission they served the most delicious oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I have ever had in my life!! Sure would like to have that recipe!!!! Wish I could have taken some pictures but that was a no-no. Don’t they know that we bloggers want pictures?!
