I couldn't see one, so thought I'd start one to continue on from 2018 :)

We started with a lovely 6 mile hack this morning. The sun even came put, which must be a good omen, right?!

Squeeeee! I'm here...on day one!!! Gracie and I did a 4.25 mile loop this morning. A few canters. We haven't done that route solo since the spring (and only once in company since then too)! Proper chuffed but totally forgot to get off-road pics because I'm out of the habit. Soz

Riding 1hr 15mins
Distance 4.25 miles

The wind is whipping and sounds like a freight train.
I just did a little at liberty in his paddock.
He is a total muddy mess.
He did not seem concerned It was not a long play bu IMG_6604.JPG IMG_6616.JPG IMG_6611.JPG IMG_6629.JPG t
better a short good play.
All it takes is one big branch.....
We have already had a momentary bloop on the electric split second and then back.

Tomorrow will be colder but much calmer.
It should be a good fun play day.

I feel really good I did get a little play in for the start of the year even with the bad winds:);)

On New Year's Day I was again acting as temporary groom at the stables so that curtailed my riding a bit. We did manage a very quick hack around the block in between jobs though. It was also Harvey's official birthday (according to his passport) so he had an apple as a treat. He is now 9 years old.

Here is is looking as muddy and dopey as ever :)

Had a great play day yesterday it was cold but still really nice out.
I brought some tree toppers and glittery garland c IMG_6687.JPG IMG_6684.JPG ones to play with over by Toni and Put played over here with them.
I REALLY like them. They were glittery shiny and fun and the pvc pipes I have put into the flower pots worked well.
The glittery cone tree nestled in nicely on the pvc and the tree toppers also worked well .
really do like how how the cone tre IMG_6698.JPG IMG_6708.JPG IMG_6722.JPG IMG_6735.JPG IMG_6739.JPG IMG_6744.JPG IMG_6730.JPG IMG_6660.JPG e nestled ins sooooooooo nicely:)

Here is Toni playing on Levi at Virginias, then me over here on Sonny.

I added some side pass in and touch it to the cone tree and star.

When it clears tomorrow bad winds again.

Its very iffy for our
Tuesday play day:(:mad:
We will start as some ugh SNOW:eek::eek: then turn to rain.
Bummer I got some different fun things to bring over to play IMG_6750.JPG with Toni too.:(

My favorite place Christmas tree shops had balloon weights that had big shiny chennile hearts and shamrocks on top of them. They will work well to play with as cones:).

Its always fun to find differnet things to play with:p:p
And to find things I can pop in the car easily to bring over.
