Finally time for the horses(at least some of them ) to get out of winter quarters and stretch their legs.
I did things a little different this year because I have only a small number of geldings now so the big girls are on coyote watch in the lake pasture ,and Johnnie and his little harem are in a bigger pen but still up close. Stryker and Harley are still in because Harley was tearing around yesterday and has injured himself (kids!) and of course the babies, we they too are in a bigger area, but just a little ,I still need them close to work with them now that it is nice out and I finally have some time (I hope)
But first I went out to make sure all the gates on the far side of the lake pasture were closed , and what did I find out there??
Well Loch Ness has Nessie, the Okanagan has Ogopogo, and we here have the monster of Lake Ste Thomas! Winston! First polar bear swim of the year!
see the ice?
dang this dog is tough!!
then it was time to cut the girls loose
"That Richie mare " 20 yrs young and looking every bit the athlete we know she is

Pretty good day overall, also got some help from my nephew loading a truck to go to the dump, a few things to recycle and such. went really well till I clocked myself in the head with the side of a bench!Sigh, I guess its still a good day if its only a little goose egg.
Much better then the snowy cold days we had earlier in the week
these two calves were hard pressed to be born on dry ground!
Then yesterday the weather turned around and boy were we all happy!
Sunshine and spring will just make anyone want to kick up their heels!
Happy Easter everyone!
