Getting the hang of Washington Winter

I haven't been riding at all lately, but I am slowly figuring out how to keep my horses happy in all this rain! Two weeks ago I picked up a few bags of pelleted bedding to give it a try and I was so pleased with how well they held up! I picked up entire pallet of wood pellets, yes, a TON of pellets yesterday. I cleaned Varro's stall (which only took 40 minutes) and put down more pellets. It is of course raining, so I am in for lunch, some hot tea then will head back out to do Aspen's stall.

In other news, we are planning to breed Aspen in June for a May foal! Here is a picture of the sire: Raleigh's Full Moon

I am really looking forward to this foal. I am hoping for a buckskin tobiano colt... But we all know that Mother Nature doesn't take requests! HAHA I will keep you all posted on her progress.
