We're oldest of friends


This picture of Foggy is from January 26, 2011, his first day at our farm - which happened to be my birthday. What a wonderful present on that day and every day since. He has filled out and become a little rotund lovebug. I can't say enough good things about this horse! Foggy is amazingly friendly and willing. He just melts my heart when I am around him. 

Yesterday was my 47th birthday and I rode the little Foggy all over the farm on the buckle. Our temperatures continue to be horrid, but my horses are sure sweet about it all. As we went up one hill, something scared him and he bucked a huge, rounded buck just like this photo. It hit right at the perfect time as I was leaning forward to reassure him so I was completely safe, thank goodness! Boy, I got lucky! He went back to his normal calm self in the next second. Foggy is very bouncy in spirit. He "boxes" with his front legs when he is turned out and pops around like a puppy. He is nine now, but he has very foal-like antics. I think his easy-going personality is a treasure in our life.

Next, I rode the sweet Pie, and Pie was equally adorable in his big, gentle giant way, but our ride was shorter. I just couldn't hack the cold. Our farm is covered in snow and the winds and air are frigid. I know it is the same for everyone. In 1967 when I was born it was a record warm week - temperatures around 71 degrees. We would be lucky if our temperatures were around 17 this year. Horsekeeping sucks in this weather, but I tell myself how fortunate I am to have them. So many days of the year are brighter because of horses.

  1. Agreed, horsekeeping does suck in this weather! But once you get moving about, it is not so bad. . .

    Happy Birthday!!

    1. Çit - Tel Örgü - Panel Çit
      Panel Çit ve Tel Çit, Tel Örgü citbu.com'da
      Panel çitler ilk etapta tel örgü sistemi içerisinde düşünülerek güvenlik amacıyla tercih edilmektedir. Özellikle de büyük şehirlerde bahçeye sahip olan kişilerin bahçe etraflarını Çit ile kaplatarak dışarıdan yabancı kişilere girişi engellemesi gerekmektedir. Sadece yabancı kişilere karşı değil kedi, köpek gibi hayvanların girişini de kapatarak bu alanı koruması gereken kişiler böylelikle daha rahat edecek olup kendilerini de koruma altına alacaklardır.
      Tel örgüler daha çok güvenliğin sağlanması adına kullanılmaktadır. İç tarafı dış etkenlerden korumak amacıyla tercih edilen tel örgüler bu sayede daha çok alana yayılmakta ve çok fazla alanda tercih edilmektedir. Sizler de tel örgüleri kendinize ait olan tarla, bahçe, garaj, park gibi alanların çevrelerine inşa ederek rahatlıkla kullanabilir, uzun ömürlü olarak kullanma imkanına sahip olup yapılarınızı en iyi şekilde dış etkenlere karşı dirençli tutabilirsiniz.
      Çoğu zaman çeşitli yapıların çevresine güvenlik önlemlerinin artırılması için belirli sistemler yerleştirilir. Daha güvenli yapıların olması, dışarıdan içeriye yabancı kişilerin ve hayvanların girmesini engellemek amacıyla tel örgü sistemleri içerisinde yer alan jiletli tel tercih edilebilr. Jiletli tel en çok talep edilen yüksek güvenlik önlemleri arasında yer almaktadır. Dikenli tellerin çok yeterli olmadını ya da daha tehlikeli bölgelere daha güvenli tellerin çevrilmesi amacıyla jiletli tellere her zaman için ihtiyaç duyulmaktadır. citbu.com

  8. Happy belated Birthday--how nice to ride around on your sweet boy, and on the buckle no less!
    Yes, it's been darn cold, especially with the wind. Warmer days are coming, along with the ticks, bugs, etc. Hah! I always think of the cold as one of the merits of winter--a break from biting insects. :)
