Winter Play With The Mini Horses

We did have the expected deep freeze so the horses were in for a few days. I managed to get them out when we cleaned stalls but not for long. The first thing they all did was play then roll.

After chores were done back in the barn to nice clean stalls with fresh water and hay. The Clydes are not as interested in the playing just wandered around checking out there field. The little ones do give us a few laughs.

During this time I have been doing some sewing. So many projects that need to be finished. One day at a time will get it done. Every time I look at my fabrics I get excited. Our Fabricland is closing in our town so it is going to be a long drive to pick up just about anything needed. Good thing my stash is so

Enjoy the day!!

It Is Just Winter!!

It has been awhile since I have posted. Lots going on in a routine way but nothing really interesting to write about I guess. We are going into another deep freeze starting tonite and have more snow coming down today. The drive to the barn is bad so I'll be glad when today is over.

Weekends have been fun. Rod and I are playing with the mini horses trying to get the little ones halter broken. It is like dog They are so confused about being lead They just sit down. To cute!!! The big boys have to be out of the barn as we play around because they are They figure they should have all the attention.

No pictures for this post. Time to get the camera out again.

Keep warm!!

Turkey's & Sewing

As I do every morning I went out and started the car so it could warm up before heading to the barn. Another cold start to the day. I heard something off to my left and there on the road was something very they came closer..yes they were wild turkeys. Boy can they The school bus came along and scared them off into the field but they did come back later and hang around the area for the rest of the day. There is a large flock of them close to the barn but they mustbe hungrey and on the move. I always have an eye out for them as they do cross the road and you sure do not want to hit one of them. Could do a lot of damage. They are becoming almost more of a nuisance than the deer. On the other hand the coyotes out rank both of them. We have 3 packs in behind us that are constantly howling during the night. They think nothing of taking a wander around our yard at the house. Rather unnerving to say the least so I am very careful when taking Kally out in the evening. Needless to say the cats never go out. The barn cats are always locked up at nite also. I have never been able to get a picture of the little fox family that used to wander cute were they. Lots of wildlife..just have to be at the right place at the right time.

With everything away from Christmas I am finally enjoying some sewing time. Just small projects but why not. This winter weather is going to be here for awhile so lots of time to get into some larger projects. A friend is on her way over with a quilt she needs help with so that will be a fun morning.

Have a Great Day!!!

Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with friends and family. We had a great time and I find it hard to believe it is all over for another year. Tomorrow hubby returns to work and our routine resumes. Can't say I am happy about that..but it is what it

Along with the end of our holiday we are in a deep freeze. Just before it bottomed out I took a few pictures of the barn yard and the mini's. I managed to pick up a dandy head cold so have not been up to do chores for a few days. Nice to have hubby home to take over with the way I have been feeling. As you will see the mini's are a bundle of fluff which sure is keeping them warm today.

Christmas decorations are away and now there is lots of quilting and sewing time. Many projects are waiting to be finished and started..oh the

Keep warm...
