I was lovin' this morning! Mild...mild...mild.

Phoebe even graced us with her presence.

When I opened the door to the barn, Dream strolled out to make sure all was well. She knew the horses were inside, but called to them from the pasture. Once she is certain she can go in and out, she considers eating some of her grain. For the past two days she has eaten half of it, and that is an improvement.

Did the usual....

The horses did their usual...

I am so glad that Dream is now eating out of the same pile of hay as Winnie.

Got back in the house fairly early and cleaned up the kitchen.

The dogs went back out with me for a few minutes after lunch. They run around like little rabbits.

Around 1, my friend Karen drove out from Rochester to give me a New Year's hug. That was above and beyond the call.....

She brought her kids along...Phoebe and Gucci were thrilled to see them.

Sounds like they had a very nice Christmas.

At 1:30 Randy and Arlene arrived. They called yesterday to see if we wanted to have a New Years lunch instead of dinner. We thought that was a great idea. It was their grandson's birthday, so they made him a "card" and we sent the pictures to him through Face Book.

They brought two New York Style pizzas (thin crust).

I made a salad...we sat by the fire, and just plain relaxed.

Then it was time for the Sequence play off for the year.

It was tense...the men were beating our pants off again.

we made a comeback and quit at 3 to 3. PEACE!

Next year we are starting with a clean slate!

Then it was time for tea and cookies (Swedish style).

At 5 I went out to do chores and took some quick shots in the dark.

Happy New Year from all the ponies!!!!






And the herd leader...Masterpiece of '79

Phoebe, Gucci and Bermuda send you their best wishes for a healthy 2010!
I'm now off duty. Night all!
