We have sure had a
dreadful winter 2013/1014. It has been one of the coldest on records
here in Manitoba and would you believe it is still miserable and the
calendar is saying it is spring! Along with the cold, we got a lot of
snow. We had a disaster a few weeks ago...our big white shed collapsed
from the snow load, and to make it even worse, we were told by our
insurance company that they do not cover "snow load". We experienced
other damage to contents as well. Oh well, life goes on and we will make
some decisions, do lots of cleaning up, and carry on. George
certainly will have a busy summer! We are very thankful that George was
not in there when it went down.....
Because we must cut
down our herd size, the decision was once again made to not breed any mares in
2013, consequently, no babies in 2014. How sad it is to not have the
excitement and joy we always looked forward to and were used to experiencing
every spring and summer. Thanks to those who have purchased some of our
horses for sharing the pictures and excitement of their new little ones
every spring. It helps!!
Two of our little
girls left this morning on their journey to their new home in Alberta.
It is always hard to say goodbye but we know they are going to get lots
of attention and love from their new owners.
We are looking forward
to summer activities soon....Will this snow ever go away?
