Warm and Cozy

Did I mention that we found an amazing barn (dare I say it because I'm always afraid to jinx it). We have been so happy. The 10 stall barn is home to a 41 year old Arabian, a donkey, a hackney pony, a QH pony, a regular sized QH, a paint, and my Hanoverian/QH/TB mutt :) Its a lovely motley crew. 

Our BO texted me tonight to ask if I could put Granite's blanket on because it was going to be under freezing and she was stuck 2 hours away at her daughters house with a very sick grand-baby. Of course I'll put my own horses blanket on! And... um, I will totally do the evening barn chores, duh. 

It was really nice. The quiet barn and the horses muching their hay. I can't even hear the traffic out there, and the moon was beautiful. I loved the opportunity to really think about how much I love that barn and the feeling of leaving all the kids warm and safe in their stalls on a chilly night.


  1. why hello! You are still alive :) So glad to hear that G-Man is doing well and staying cozy!

  2. Yah! I'm glad you guys found a good fit and it's nice to get an update.

  3. oooh I love the smaller farm atmosphere- feels like a home!

  4. First thought: Ooooooh Granite has a rhino. For serious.

    So glad you're alive and have a lovely barn to chill at. :)

  5. Looks like a very nice barn. Nothing better than sounds of content horses snuggley chomping on hay :)
