And this was how 2010 Came To An End

Clear and cold...teeth chattering, finger numbing cold. So peaceful, so tranquil...and cold, of course...cold.

Because I spotted it over and Karen's Rough String and thought it a fabulous idea (and because I'm not at all shy about swiping fabulous ideas), I thought it may be fun to look back over 2010 and see just what we did. I must admit there moments I'd forgotten...and wish I could have kept that way!

For instance, nearly a full year ago, the Desperate Horsewife Bakes a Cake. This year? No cake. Sorry, Darling.

I'm not terribly sure how it happened, but I'm thinking the new pair is now looking pretty similar to the old pair in I Was Sittin' Here Thinkin'... Time for duct tape!

My recurring nightmare...fishing with a bobber...Fishing is a lot like Gentling Mustangs

The Red Headed Fury pulled at our heartstrings in February.

Darling began taking jumping lessons early in 2010. I'm not really sure why she was upset, are you?

No horse drove the bobber method down my throat harder than Red. What a special boy he was...and is. Some horses simply are here to let you know that you ought not take a single thing for granted.

Darling and Steve Holt! had a little fun in the sun early this spring.

Best Daddy Note, Ever! No argument there. Darling and I also had fun on the Sumas Mt Trail Challenge over Memorial Day weekend.



It's Complicated...I cried, you cried, we all cried. I still don't quite have a grasp on why I did what I did, except that it simply must have been time.

The Beautiful Wadatika has captured so many hearts during this year of struggles, but she definitely offered the best gift of the season...even though it came the Day After Christmas.

Tika's week has been fan-flippin-tastic. From the day after Christmas, to New Year's Eve, she's progressed tremendously in less than a week. Today I rode on my own...no strings attached...walk and trot and stop and turn. Curt stood back, long line coiled loosely and no longer attached. I'm looking forward to the things that Tika will accomplish in 2011. No goals, no deadlines, just time and patience and progress.

Hope y'all have a delightful evening, and wish you all a Happy New Year!

LOL, I remember those boots. Mostly because I own a pair just like them. I still have mine however. LOL

I remember you got new ones.

Sounds like Tika had a breakthrough. Good for her.

Happy New Year to you, my friend!
