Wonderful news!

It was 74 degrees here today!  That alone is worth a blog entry.   But the real news is that I may be getting some interesting horses on Montpelier!  A foster farm is closing, so I am taking those horses to another farm, which is willing to swap out for possibly very sound horses.  Isn’t that […]

Okay, I’m rolling the dice here

The horses seem to have flipped the Spring is Here switch.  Six inches of snow, and they snub the hay, preferring to dig for grass.  They are shedding.  Personally, I think they should hold onto the hair, given the unpredictability of the weather around here lately.  But I have been over ruled.  So, I am […]

I have lost my sense of humor

It is probably in the front yard, under the six inches of snow we got yesterday.  I must have dropped it on my way in from the car.  Well, I guess I will find it in April, if this stuff ever melts. I am so bummed.  I had the hay perfectly planned.  The timing is […]

more snow

I am so over snow.  And I am running out of hay.  If this mess doesn’t clear itself up and turn into spring pronto, I have to go find more round bales.  Crappy winter, so they went through a little more than usual.  At least the horses that have to come back to this farm […]

Sigh

14 inches of snow, after rain rain rain, and now several days of 60 degrees. I am very, very happy for the warmer temps, believe me, but can we talk mud for a moment? Knee freaking deep. Boot sucking mud. Hah! Reggie wouldn’t come up this morning, so, being the hardworking, dedicated horsewoman that I […]

The only thing good about snow is that it is not mud

I have cool pictures, but I can’t add them here on Dave’s laptop. Doesn’t work. Sometimes just typing doesn’t work. At any rate, I thought I should check in. We got dumped on. 14 inches, but my little 1990 Ranger was a star. Fortunately, I remembered to load it up with wood on Wednesday, because […]

More winter weather

I guess that miserable little rodent was right.  I haven’t yet had a chance to run up to PA, but I will soon.   That gopher is stew meat!  In fact, Saratoga?  Anyone going through PA soon?  I know Sara lives on the road.  Perhaps we could arrange a little mission? Otherwise, all is well.  Ron […]

Winter on Montpelier

White Hot in Hay Usually, we have very few single digit temperatures here in central VA.  It happens, though.  The last time I remember that happening was 2003/2004, the winter I started here.  I had to jump up and down on the automatic waterers to break them free.  By the time I got home, my […]

Message for Saratoga

Hi guys. I need a couple days off. I’ve got to go to Pennsylvania and kill a groundhog. Won’t take long. Yeesh, we are back to 37 and rain. This is the worst kind of weather. The horses do 3 degrees and sunny much better than 37 and raining. Speaking of rain, I hear the […]

Bleh

So, I wake up and it has snowed again.  Weather channel said this mess would be south of us, but they missed it.  And it was 9 degrees.  I would have given anything to have been able to go back to bed and stay there until April.  Yes, for an ex-New Englander, I have become […]
