    I wish you hadn't said margarita!

    The photos are great. Thanks. He looks more quarter than saddlebred, except for maybe the slope of his hips. He looks like a nice horse. I bred my saddlebred mare to a quarter horse when I was a teenager. But she lost the foal in the fourth month. I always wondered what it would have looked like

    Congratulations to the whole family! That will be one loved (and probably spoiled rotten, LOL,) little girl!

    Spanish, do you own the QH/Saddlebred now? I'd really like to see what that cross looks like. Do you have a photo?

    ^^^Yikes! So are your water pipes buried 6-7 feet?

    It looks like a James Fennimore Cooper book!

    ^^^I only had to go eight miles altogether, PD. And I only met two cars coming and going on my country road. The manual gears worked well for snow. I'm glad to know that for future reference. Of course, my truck is a Chevy! This morning, for the first time ever, I fed and watered the horse and didn't clean the stall. I was just too cold. It's supposed to get to 30 today. It's 20 now, so I'm going back to do my duty.

    Pretty, Heidi! But you need more snow. I'll send you some. What is the round thing in your front yard? Is it a wagon wheel?

    PD, I didn't sign up for this! I was wrong about 4 inches--weather service says five, and it's snowing again. I have to get to the drug store for my BP meds. I haven't driven in snow since I retired. If you never hear from me again... The truck I have has 6 "manual drive" gears even though it's automatic. I don't know if that's a con or not. It seemed to help on hills when I was towing a trailer full of horse manure. What do you all think? How would it work?

    PD, if I were facing two months of snow, I'd be really depressed. I was congratulating myself for being able to shovel a path to the manure pile. It's only 30 or 40 feet. RRW, that's an 18 inch tall flower pot! It better not get that deep! I do remember MLK day in 1994, though. It snowed 21 inches overnight according to the news. But in my yard it was 24 inches! So I guess I lucked out this year. Queen, you need those pups to keep the older dogs exercised.

    LOL, PD, my horse has to wear a grazing muzzle and really needs a dry lot. Lush grass used to be important to me. Now, it just means more mowing! I'm trying to change my attitude to the scenery. It's probably very pretty to most people, as it usually is to me.

    Four inches of snow and 13 degrees! Who wants it?!!!

    My thumb operation was 13 years ago. It was a breeze for the first one, so I had the other done two weeks later. My other fingers get stiff after tough stuff like trimming the horse's feet. And I try to avoid vibrating tools. That really is the worst thing for them. But my thumbs are fine. I hear the hand surgery has improved a lot and they can do the carpal tunnel one with keyhole surgery. But I'd rather not go there.
