Oh wow! The storm really DID lose its punch by the time it got to you, didn't it? It was pretty terrible here. Today is the first day it really warmed up since Sunday. We had a good day today except for having to move the RV. Our site was one of those flooding from the backed up septic system and the park maintenance people suggested we move so they could work on it. Most of the water in the park was frozen on Sunday morning and didn't warm up till today, so water just now thawing. When we moved the RV, the legs on the front wouldn't go down, we have had nothing but trouble with this auto leveling system since we bought the RV! About ready to take it to Indiana and park it in Jayco's yard and put a big lemon sign on the leveling system!
Yes, Steve is really good with the horses. He is quiet and patient and uses Natural Horsemanship methods. Everyone loves him and the way he treats the horses. Yes, we are staying warm in our RV! Didn't even know that it was that cold outside, the furnace works well, and the fireplace and the extra heater really helps!
Well, glad that you aren't getting a whole load of snow again this time. I would rather have it 30 degrees and snowing than in the low teens and blowing fiercely out of the north which is what it is doing today! Our low tonight is to be 13 degrees, with wind chill as low as minus 1!! We are certainly not used to that!
Lexi did very well at the clinic, except it took Steve forever to get her to stand on a narrow wooden bridge over a short, shallow gully. She was just sure she wasn't going to step on it, but he kept sending her at it till she finally stood on it, trembling. She was really afraid of it! Poor girl!
Hey, Wendy, We had to stay put today, will wait for it to thaw tomorrow. There was ice built up in the tracks of the slides, and the slide outs wouldn't come in, even though Matt chipped the ice out of the bedroom slide and we got THAT in, the one for the kitchen is much larger and was also full of ice, so we didn't want to risk it. We will wait for it to melt tomorrow and go over then.
I actually SAW Lexi yesterday, she is looking good and riding well. The girl who now owns her showed me pictures of her healed tongue, and it looks like she has a deep canal running across it! At least it is completely healed and she is eating well. I guess she got pretty thin there for a while. It was so good to see her. Our trainer in Weatherford (about an hour from Glen Rose) put on a clinic and Brittany (who owns Lexi) Jan, and Jan's neighbor, Sheila, attended and rode. So, I got to see them. I hope they make it home OK! It is about a 4 hour drive but don't think it will be bad except in this section of north Texas. No, I haven't seen Equus Magazine in quite a while!
