Today is Wednesday and I am home from work because it has been snowing for HOURS and the company I work for gave everyone the day off. I'm glad about this because today is Brandon's birthday (the big 4-0!) and I am going to bake him some cookies! But first, I am blogging! This is a picture of Getty's foot after romping in the snow for an hour. Darn those toe snowballs. Today would have been a great day to test out the Pam cooking spray on her feet. Did I remember? No I did not. In any case, if you want to see 19 seconds of dog joy, please click here.
I did go for trail ride today which was UNBELIEVEABLY DROP DEAD GORGEOUS and which I will detail on my next post.
Before that, here are a few pictures from Sunday''s ride which was windy enough and cold enough to make me easily believe I was visiting the arctic tundra, were it not for all the familiar sights of home.
Here we passed the big pasture where if you look carefully, you can see the horses out there looking at us.
Here I am following Bill and Charlie through the Winter Pasture. Challenges: open space and bitter wind. Baby New Year sure feels a lot like Old Man Winter.... I filmed a short clip while walking through this pasture. Click right here to see it! And if you click here, you will see Bill's version of the same moment! Spoiler Alert: my pink helmet cozy makes me look like I am wearing my pajamas out on the trail! Hilarious.
Bill paused here at the Big Pasture to trade Charlie for Jodie. I do not know how he kept his gloves off for so long to readjust all the straps on the saddle. Brrrr! Do you see Lilly looking as she sees Jodie coming back into the scene? I wonder if she remembers that day in the pasture when Jodie kept charging us. I sure haven't forgotten!
Here is our welcoming committee when we got back to the barn. It is always nice to know someone is at home waiting for a safe return.
Here's one more cute video Bill made: Click riiiight here.
Next post: today's winter wonderland ride!!
Wish you were here!
