When walking out to the barn I heard an aweful squealing and wailing of horse hooves on another body. I had to laugh when I reallized it was our 650 lb icelandic stallion Triggvy trying to get romantic with a 1600 lb percheron cross gelding. Evidently it was not too cold for romance, just the wrong sex.
OMG! It was so cold this morning at 4 A.M. doing chores. It is easy to forget these kind of days after it starts to warm up, but living them sucks!! When I opened the barn door to let the inside horses out thier breath froze and hung in the air like tooley fog, it was so cool. I need to remember to order feed soon. I just try not to have the feed delivery guys have to come when it is so cold, I must plan ahead. I sure miss the riders coming out, thank God the daylight is getting longer each day now.

    Hi,
    Thanks for visiting our website. My name is Mary Loch and I have had horses in my life for 33 years now. I have had the great pleasure of meeting many horse people from a huge variety of horse back grounds. From the first time horse rider to the highly skilled horse trainer. I have learned one thing from all of them. We all love our horses and the presence of horses in our lives. We all started with the love of the horse. Then some of us moved on to where we want to be, or hope to be, constantly changing directions, as we see new paths that we can challenge ourselves with. New obstacles  that we can try with our horse companions,  I hope this blog of ours touches you with some great horse stories and experiences and lets you become a part of our STABLE LIFE.
