Not too much excitement in my horse world right now. I've been wanting to post, mainly as a way to procrastinate on studying, but I don't have anything to talk about!

We've been having quite the cold front here this weekend, beginning Friday and possibly going until tomorrow? But we're not used to this cold! It was -3 degrees F the other morning when I got up to go to work. Brr. I'm not cut out for this cold! The coldest I can remember it being in the valley since I've lived here (for 14 years) was a week in the 8-10 degree range.

All I can say is that I wish it wasn't finals week and instead I was at my parents' house in front of the fire drinking eggnog and eating Christmas cookies and riding my horses in the snow and sledding, haha. Now that would be perfect!

Wish I was doing this! Our first snow ride in 2011

Still one of my favorite pictures of us to this day.

Luckily it sounds like the horses are doing fine, though they've recently decided that their hay is not up to their standards. So they are now BOTH getting alfalfa (stinkers, I think they know how to milk the system) in addition to their normal Orchard grass hay just to make sure they're eating enough forage to keep themselves warm. I'll probably make them some mashes once I get home to warm them up. Since everything's frozen, I guess my mom has been shoveling snow into their heated stock tank to provide water. My poor parents! I think my mom wins best parent award right there though.

In other exciting news, I finally have 100 followers! It took a while to go from 99 to 100, but now that we're here I can figure out a contest! I'm having a bit of a struggle thinking up something to give away, but I'll figure it out and once I do I'll announce the contest. And I know I keep saying this, but stay tuned for a contest in the (very) near future :)

  3. Congrats on 100 followers! Very cool. And yes, it has been freezing around here. I can't wait until it warms up a bit.

  4. Love the pics. Ive always wanted to ride in the snow, however even though we get snow its never enough to cover the ground.
