Thursday 18 December 2008

I finally finished a crocheted poncho that I started 2 years ago!!!!! I havent touched it for years and then decided I needed to keep my hands busy while watching TV and because I get anxiety attacks and this helps to calm me. So here is the finished product, she wanted something bright with a sort of African theme and this was as close as I could get.

Stan has been working in the area the past few days and as he passes the house every day decided yesterday to come and visit my baby horse Goldy. He had managed to get the halter and lead rope on her, she is a touchy and strong little thing and I wasn't getting very far with her. This is just a snapshot taken today of them, she is doing so well I am so pleased with her and am indebted to Stan for his time, he has three horses that we have bred and loves working with the babies so they hit it off immediately.
You can see from this pic that we have a lot of ice, the snow has all blown away and all of the white is our drive which is like an ice skating rink and you have to be really careful when you are walking outside. Expecting freezing rain snow and rain today through the next few days, so we are in for a marathon of bad weather.
Hope everyone is having a good week and hopefully we will survive the dreadful weather this weekend. ((((Hugs))))

Oh I LOVE that poncho!!! I want one! And your little horse is so fluffy. Take care walking on that ice!

Great poncho!

The little horse is looking good! I agree with CG and she looks so fluffy. Is that something to do with the breed or is it just her?
Shows my in depth knowledge of horses!:)

We got rid of our ice thankfully. Had a couple of day way above freezing but we are headed for the deep freeze again.

Merry Christmas!

Goldy is very cute! Such a pretty eye.

Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

We still need to figure out how to chat, BTW, while I still have some time to chat. Once I get back to the horses, I don't think I'm going to come up for air for weeks. LOL

Nice to see the horse, Goldy, out and about with Stan the Man.

Also, was wondering what ever happened to the horse who tore up his leg? I hope he got through that and is doing OK.

I am now home from the hospital and hope to be able to stay here from now on.

I think the poncho is very nice and colorful, I'm sure it will be warm too.
Goldy is adorable, looks like she's doing okay on the ice.
