It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Doesn't matter what the temp says - it's always beautiful out here. We're blessed!

Christmas photos 2008

Time to round up the kiddos and get some photos taken for the season. The kids are now 4 & 5. The roan mare is 5 now, turning out to be a super horse - one or both of these kids is going to have a jam up rodeo horse someday.

Riding lessons

We haven't been able to find a suitable replacement for Fuzzy, so our next best idea was to get our daughter some riding lessons on trusted lesson horses. Lately we have been hauling her once a week to a 3-Day eventing trainer. She looks so tiny up there! The horse she's riding in the photos is "Socks" - reg. name Mi High Socks. He's an advanced eventing horse but does really well with the little ones too. All the private owner and lesson horses were body clipped for the winter show season. He's a shameless treat-beggar, and known as the "King of Carrots", so the crest on his hip is a crown and carrots crossed like sabers.
