When the Sun Shines~
First snow of the season~
We wake to a world of white, blazing blue skies & brilliant sunshine! Cold too, with temps in the 20's. Just the kind of snow that packs into the horses feet & makes those icy, hard balls - especially when combined with Farah's brand new, last shoes of the year!
As badly as I'd like to ride, it's icy, frosty & slippery... I'm Hopeful that the sunshine & 40's forecast for next week - will pan out! In the meantime, we're going tree cutting & pulling the boxes of decorations out of the barn loft. Every year I say I'm not going to do as much - & every year I still do it all...
This year we'll celebrate our 25th Christmas on The Homestead! Unreal how fast those years have flown by! Time to do my annual Christmas letter & have finally ordered the cards. I was going through the notebook where I've kept them all - since our first.
Here's one of my favorites - from 1994! Back when Khaz was finally old enough for Butch to ride, when Jas was good for Jentry & before I sold Alexi & Jas became mine. (Alexi & Khaz were full brother/sister.) Abby - our first Beagle & the most defiant, was the only one who would pose for photos!
