Whew! It is now December and things are still busy as ever! We got the water lines and power put in and the round pen set up just in time. Snow was starting to fall the last night we were working on the round pen. Rush's field is still not finished so the round pen will be his home for the winter.
We drove over to visit my family the weekend before Thanksgiving and came back to a couple inches of snow here at home. We got dupmed on the week of Thanksgiving, adding around 12 more inches by the time the storm passed. All the while the tractor was broke down so we weren't able to plow the driveway (suprisingly my little Subaru still made it in and out the driveway without getting high centered at all). We're down to around a foot now after some melt off it's done the last couple days. Just got the tractor running again today so plowing and feeding horses won't be such a big stress on both of us now (660lb round bales aren't so easy to move once they've settled into the stack). Mom, Autumn, Keila, and Paula will be coming to visit after Christmas for a few days, I'm really suprised they want to try to brave the driving conditions not being used to all the snow, but I'm definitley looking forward to it!
We'll be having a new arrival this coming within the next month or so. We have purchased the two year old filly RF Laylah from Khemostar Arabians. She is a sweepstakes nominated Marwan Al Shaquab and Ray Dor Echo grandaughter with many other greats also in her pedigree. I would like to thank Khemostar for the once in a lifetime chance to own this filly!
