Otoelene and I went out for a nice chilly (28 degrees) morning ride.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday eating and visiting with family. But really missed sister A and nephew M.
Happy Black Friday.

With freezing rain from the winter nor'easter, not much, that's what's blooming.
No official update but I'm sure this rain has bound to put out the Horse Heaven Fire.

I am testing out a new feature today. Since my sister is looking for a horse, I've been checking out ads on Facebook and Craig's List (I know she is already looking at the more desirable sites like Dream Horse and Horse Clicks). I have come across some interesting entries. Tell me what you think.

I got a call from a friend Friday night wanting me to go with her to pick up an owner surrender rescue horse the next day. She was getting it for a friend whose 11 year old daughter was learning to ride and this was to be her first horse. "Baily" is a 15.2 hand 11 year old registered breeding stock Paint gelding. The story was her husband had had a stroke and they could no longer care for the horse, it needed some hoof work but had been trail ridden all over the east coast.

I might be busy the next time crazy Aimee asks for a favor. (Just joking Aimee.)

Yesterday was the annual goat roundup and sale. We had a buyer for all the little one, cull nannies and billies.

J and I are proud parents of a new member of the National Honor Society.
E was tapped into the Society during a very nice ceremony on Monday.
They are saying 80% containment with 1500 acres burned. 100% containment is expected today.

A man brought his cat to the clinic and requested a heartworm test. I was in the middle of explaining to him how there were more important things his cat actually needed and that heartworms were an uncommon problem in dogs in our area and almost unheard of in cats. I was not just in the middle of the conversations, I was in the middle of a sentence when he said, "You have beautiful teeth."

I have a rope gate set up in the barn. E and I use it to practice with every horse we ride. This is a required obstacle for the trail class at the State Show and I don't know which horse E will take next year so they are all learning how to do it which is just good training in general.

Some friends cut out a new spur trail to the top of a cliff and wanted to show everyone where it was so we thought it would be a good time to take Brother on his first group trail ride.
The view was worth the ride.
All in all, another successful training ride for Brother. With 13 adult riders, 2 kids and 2 dogs there was lots for him to process.
Fire update 1100 acres burned 60% contained.

"Where is Kit Kat?" you might very well ask on this Kit Kat Sunday.
