Thanksgiving Trail Ride

I got to take Roz, and my dog Annie on a trail ride on Thanksgiving. It was so nice to be able to take them out. A couple years ago I took them all the time. Once I started leasing Roz out I didn't ride him very much and quit taking them out. Annie was SO excited to be go out in the forest with us.

She was totally calm and just laying around until I started putting Roz's bridle on. She obviously knew where I was at in the getting ready process because she started to whine and jump around. We had a nice quiet morning in the woods and brought back a tired pony and puppy. Here are a few pictures I got.

6 months!

We are over half way there! I am so excited to meet this little guy (or girl) sometime in April. Roxanne continues to grow. We took new pictures again today. At this point baby is between 6 1/2 and 14 1/2 pounds, is 14-24 inches long, and has hair on it's lips, nose, eyelids, and eyebrows.

Once Roxy's pasture mate was turned out today she was running around, bucking and doing flying changes. Apparently baby pants isn't slowing her down too much.

New Blankie!

About a month ago I won a $50 gift certificate to Victory Canter on Facebook. I chose to purchase Roxy a new blanket and let Pie have her old one as I was afraid he might rip it. I was exactly right since his blanket is now destroyed. (read more about that at

Anyway, I got her an adorable pink plaid blanket and then forgot to post pictures. Here it is.

165 Days to go

This is like a Christmas countdown, except....BETTER! :) I am so excited to see her beautiful baby. I got a chance to hang out with her on this sunny November day. She is such a goofball most of the time! Loves to hang out with "her people."

Her forelock was super dirty so I ended up taking her into the wash rack so I could clean it up. She was great for that. I clipped her bridle path and her whiskers too. She never minds the clippers and was happy to mouth them while I tried to work. Here are a few pictures of the gorgeous girl today.

"Hurry up mom!"

So cute!

"Who? Me?"

I've got to say, I love this mare!
