We had a great weekend. It warmed up enough to bring the die hard riders to the coverall indoor arena for a horse fix. It was great to see everyone and the horses! It dosen't take long for them to get out of shape. It takes even less time to get them pissy about getting warmed up and a little bit sweaty again. I LOVE it. I just need to get my taxes done now so I can focus on riding and riding and riding. The horse Expo will be here in no time. I want my Icys to be ready for the get up and go part. We are having pregnancy checks on the 3 mares to see if our little Triggvy stallion was able to play like the big boys last fall. It would be AWESOME if he had at least one foal on the way. It was 13 above this morning at 4am for doing the barn chores. A heat wave as far as winter goes. 2 broken manure forks and a $45.00 broken corner feed dish tend to take down the meager January profits, but it is part of the stable business, losses are to be had. I hope people are starting to think about clinics now and want to come to ours. We will have a fun day with some guaranteed good food..., Yum Yum.  Dick the rescue horse is doing better and his side kick Sassy is now being turned out into the mare herd for some sunshine and exercise. Dicks' penis is still won't retrack full so cannot be exposed to the cold weather yet. I give him a 50-50 chance of him totally recovering from his frostbite and being able to be outside when the weather is below freezing.

    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.
