November 2007

We have some bad news to share. Tyler's yearling filly, CSR Tyler's Blazen Wendy died on the morning of Nov 6. I looked out the window in the morning to her pasture and saw her there. It was quite a shock, although she had been acting tired for the last week, she had a good apitite cleaning up her TwizWhiz and grain every night. To the right is a picture of Wendy with her dam Tinkerbelle and Tyler.

On a happier note, we've been busy working with the young horses. Got most of the pens ready for winter now and the chickens moved to the warmer coops. The goats got wormed and vaccinated today, we've got lots of wood in, and I've got most of the barn winterized. It's supposed to be cold for the rest of the week, then warmer again. Great for winter riding. Nebbie is coming along real nice now, I've got four rides on her now, Saturday being the last day I rode her. It was pretty windy and snowing and getting dark, but she was game to do anything I asked. Razz's ground work is progressing nicely, although we still have some work to do before he's ready for his first ride.

Lisa and I are going to make a concerted effort to go to the Willingdon arena every Thursday night for some riding. Anybody close by is more than welcome to join us. We would also like to go to the St Paul arena, but time scheduals make it more difficult to get to during the day.

Oh Fran,

I'm so sorry to hear about Wendy...Tyler really was looking forward to working with her and having her to ride in the future....its so sad.
