Funny-I accidentally sent this picture to my blog...oops! Hello everyone! We've been in a huge drought here in California-the recent rain storm has been very exciting. And the dusting of snow icing on the cake! The ponies, Guppies, and Monsters are extra frisky this morning :)  Hope everyone is doing well out there...we send lots of love! Xoxo Sue and the crew

We have had a wonderful week of skiing and skijoring with The Guppies and Monsters here in much fun! I like snow so much better than rain...too bad we mostly get rain here. We'll just have to enjoy the snow days as much as we can when we get them :)

Here is a fun short video of mr smrp and The Monsters on their very first skijor-they did great!

His Majesty

King Tangleberry Pie loves having breakfast in bed. My favorite part of this little tradition we have is listening to his ridiculously cute little grumbly noises and deep sighs that he gives out non stop as he munches his yummy meal. I usually kneel down next to him so that I can snuggle with him and whisper silly things in his adorably fuzzy ears. Senior ponies are simply wonderful. I feel so lucky that I have this opportunity to spend these tender moments with my kind and gentle boy :)

We have so been busy finishing all of the fencing and barn work for our sweet ponies that I have been awful at posting updates-so sorry! But here are a few minutes with our handsome senior boy, Tango. He decided he wanted breakfast in bed this morning :) Love this sweet kind boy...I hope we have lots of years together still. All senior ponies should have such a happy life :)

One would think..

One would think that 8,972 pictures of Mister Beah in his guppie pool would be more than enough.

And one would be wrong.

Here is picture 8,973 :)

I love my silly pool napping boy!

Crazy fire nearby...

We have a 13,500 acre fire (that's about 20 square miles) raging about 6 miles from us right now-it is called the American Fire. It started a week ago. 

The footprint of the fire is about 11 miles long and ranges from 2 - 3.5 miles wide. This image shows how big it is-that's Lake Tahoe to the East. We are inundated with smoke-I've never been this close to such a big fire. 

There are C-130's, a DC-10, and a dozen big helicopters flying low over our property every day plus over 1400 firefighters camped out in our little town (our population is only 1500 people!). We like having them here :) 

Thank goodness that the fire is mostly heading to the North East and South East. We hope it is contained soon but many of the firefighters think it will become double or triple in size before it is contained. Yikes. 

We do have our horse trailers ready to go in case we have to evacuate but hopefully that won't happen. 

There are amazing photographs of the fire at the following link.

The Tevis Cup

I met a friend in town so we could watch the gorgeous Tevis Cup horses...such amazing animals! I got a chuckle at seeing our local feed store owner trot by wearing a blue tutu :) It was fun to meet a few more folks and see so many beautiful horses...I felt like a kid in a candy shop with shiny object syndrome :)

Take your dragon to work day

I did not realize that today was Take Your Dragon to Work Day-thank goodness that Jesse Guppie remembered! Dragons need their exercise and socialization time, too. Jesse brought her little friends along on our morning bike ride-the whole ride not just a few a tennis ball in case the dragons got lonely. Good job Jesse...thanks for doing your part to train the little dragons :)
