I am continuing to enjoy the milder weather that we are experiencing here in the Treasure Valley. There is still some snow and ice, and paddocks are starting to look like lakes/quagmires, but it is warm.
Baby Paul and Ricky are off to the cowboy to get started this week. This is something that my husband and I or my husband and John usually do, different plans this year since he is still in SanFran. This cowboy is awesome! The first time I ever saw him was at the track, he was leading a young race horse with a halter and lead rope. Suddenly a horse gets loose on the track and starts galloping down the chute towards the barns where we are (I am on a racehorse at this point), and I'm thinking how is this going to end : / ? *cue some wild west music here* the cowboy lithely swings onto the horse he is leading and gallops onto the track and catches the loose horse! *shock awe shock* No bridle, no saddle, young horse, OMG. Turns out he is a really nice guy as well, one of those people that is more comfortable on the back of a horse than on his own two feet. When he is done with a horse they go up and down mountains, cross rivers, load in trailers, etc etc.

Signing off for the night with a step forward planned for tomorrow...a pulled mane for miss Diva!
