Soon, very soon

So, yes, I have been quiet lately. It happens this time of the year! Cold and yucky and time to hunker down with a good book or a computer game or the tv and a cup of hot chocolate.

But spring is just around the corner. Yes, it is. Despite the snow that keeps insisting on falling.

Chicken Chase is just a little over 2 months away. Yay!!! The farrier is due out in a couple weeks to put shoes back on Serts and Tanna. Then it's time to hit the pavement for some conditioning. Chicken Chase has been changed to a 2-day ride this year. Boo. But we will still go and love every minute as we usually do, but it will only be the Friday 50 this year. No LD for Serts.

So, changes to our place. We got ourselves a cutie little dog in December. We picked up Kelsey from the Huntsville, Alabama, shelter after seeing her adorable face on their Facebook page. Kelsey is about 18 months old and a Chihuahua/Italian Greyhound mix. We got her for my MOM. But I fell in love with her and when we took her to my mom in December, I had a hard time letting go of her. Kelsey didn't seem to fit in with my mom's ideas too well, either, lucky for me. So we got my mom a cute little Chi puppy and Kelsey came home with us. Look for Kelsey to come to rides with us!

We have another big change coming in early March. If you know me well, you know this already, but the rest of you will have to wait until the change arrives before I broadcast it, but I'm super excited about it. ;-)

Until then, keep warm and dry, and dream about endurance!!
