Let It Snow

Yes, today's Christmas Eve meet with the Farmington Hunt Club was quite SNOWY . . . this photograph, as we moved off near Free Union, Virginia, catches a few flakes in the air, but by the time Zender and Henry got back on the trailer, they had balls of packed snow and ice in their hooves!  We were cold by the time we were done, but the snow against the woods and mountains was beautiful and put us all in the holiday spirit!

I am doing a sun-dance now, though, hoping that the weather improves for our vacation mini-camp dates.  A few days already have four kids signed up, so there are a few more openings 12/28, 12/31, 1/2 and 1/4.  I made a special trip to the crafts store to prepare for some fun indoor warm-up activities . . . and we are definitely going to try to get that campfire going for smores this week!  Also, I'm looking up recipes online to put together some yummy holiday treats for all the horses.  So camp will be busy, no matter the weather.

Once again my wonderful neighbors dropped off a basket of fruit (purchased to support the Louisa High School FFA), and I cannot tell a lie . . . a few of the apples may end up in the horses' bellies tomorrow morning!
