Spring fever

I think it's really here!! The snow melt caused the run off creek to flood and damage the culverts in my horse's pasture- I will have to get some photos. It was gorgeous out today and I wanted to ride but Ranch Boy was gone so I didn't have a sitter for the kiddo.  Maybe tomorrow!

I haven't had a lesson in a few weeks due to scheduling challenges with the lesson horse, but hopefully we'll get back on track next week. I did lose my part time job as the gift shop I worked at went out of business, so lesson funding is limited. However, I just started subbing at the school this week so that will help.

The Ranch got a new horse today. His name is Calypso. He is a 22 yr old Dutch Warmblood. He was a former show and lesson horse and will hopefully work out for the Ranch as a trail and lesson horse. He looks his age but has a nice expression and wasn't overly nervous when unloaded and put into the corral. Keeping our fingers crossed that he turns out to be a nice addition!

Next post- working on a boot review!

The new guy looks like a nice horse! Hope he works out! The weather looks beautiful it is all snow, ice, and mud!

The sun is shining and the air is warm but we still have some snow and mud on the ground here, too. But at least the sky was blue! ;)

That's great news about the subbing! Hopefully it will turn into something more permanent!
