Snow Ball Day

Today is one of those really beautiful winter days - it's not too cold - high 20s - and there's almost no wind. We're having some snow flurries, and the big flakes are drifting down just as if someone had shaken a snow ball. It's just glorious, and most of the horses are out without blankets and really enjoying it.

I know I really appreciate everyone's supportive and helpful comments about Miranda. She seems somewhat less worried this morning. I've decided that I'm not going to post about Miranda any more, at least for now. Miranda's story doesn't really belong to me, it belongs to my daughter at this point and I'd like to protect her privacy.

I sure hope all of you in the areas hard-hit by snow are OK and safe!


  1. That's probably a good decision--my daughter doesn't like me to blog about certain areas of her life--her horse, for one. So, I haven't been able to blog about the other day when her horse almost kicked me because she was trying to kick my horse, Cowboy, while they were tied up on the trailer. ;) (I'll write it in your comments because she'll never see it). I've had to use my delete key a few times--and talk in code. :)

    Enjoy the snow today!!

  2. Glad you're having a beautiful day. We've got gorgeous skies and were very lucky to have the storm pass us by for once.

    Glad to hear Miranda is doing better today. I understand your daughter wanting to protect her privacy. My eldest won't let me put up any pictures of her children even the cute ones with the horses. Too many crazies on the internet. Can't say I blame her.

  3. Prayers going out for Miranda, your daughter, and YOU too Kate that Time, Consistency, and Routine are what will help Miranda the most.

    We'll be thinking of you!

  4. Mirianda is in the best hands with you two as her caregivers!
    Have a good Sunday of snow...

  5. We have some sunshine here, and it was not windy this morning. Your big snowflakes are probably headed this way.

    Sorry if your daughter was not happy in any way about your posts. You have only good intentions. As you have seen, my family is a big part of my posts and so far, they are all for it. Just have to be smart about what is going out there.

    Enjoy this day!

  6. Sometimes it's hard to know where to draw the line when posting about other folks. I post a lot about life at the farm, but I ask permission if it's something personal or controversial.

    Glad you're having a great day. More rain here :-(

  7. We all understand about Miranda, I'm sure. Your daughter has done a wonderful job with her, that's for sure. The warm weather pictures from the show were gorgeous.

    But she is your daughter's project and whatever she does is her business and not ours, unless she wants us to know.

    In the meantime, I'll be happy to read how it's going with your horses as they have interesting personalities as well. (Grey Horse Matters's blog today stressed how each horse needs its own "kind" of training, so your topic today suits perfectly.)

    Here's hoping you get some good weather and some good footing so you can have some fun.

  8. I definitely understand being discreet online. I had an Internet stalked once, so I've always tried to be fairly discreet when I'm talking about other people on my blog. That's why I don't give anyone's name beyond my own and my husband's. I have finally started naming Panama's friends on my blog, but their owners I simply refer to as "so-and-so's mom."

    I am sure we will all miss hearing about Miranda -- what horse person doesn't love hearing about a rescue horse's rehabilitation? -- but we know she is in good hands with you until your daughter gets back. My thoughts will be with her, even if you don't blog about her. :o)

  9. Stay warm in the snow, think we're done with it for this winter (famous last words!).

    And good luck to you all with Miranda, especially your daughter :)

  10. Kate - not sure if you ever got my comment about your last post. I left a long comment and it never appeared on your blog.
    Enjoy your snowglobe and Noble's ears! My mom spent a few minutes yesterday describing the cuteness of "the ears on Kate's." I told her that I had seen them too and loved them, but she couldn't hear me with her big hat on so she just kept going on and on about "the ears" - isn't that funny!?!
