Old man winter needs to find a new hang out

Reasons why we live here....What on earth is better
than a prairie trail ride with friends?

This is the beauty of North Dakota..and this little slice
of heaven is for sale!!

What life looks like at our house all winter

Yes, I realize I reside in North Dakota, but remember we are Oregonians and still fairly new transplants to this land. Last winter here was HORRIBLE. We had over 100 inches of snow and plenty of well below zero days. This winter, quite frankly, aint much better. Gobs of snow and now they are predicting maybe our coldest days of winter yet to come. EGADS, we've already had lots of days where the mercury refused to even approach zero. Question right now is, how much longer can we hold off becoming in the loony bin...and not become nasty, nut jobs?

I'm gonna add a couple pics of what this beautiful state looks like when the grass is green, the sky brilliant blue, and the only sound to be heard are the meadowlarks singing away. Oh and if you are interested, the picture of the pretty grass field is a 40 acre lot we are selling. It is a gorgeous peice of land located about 23 miles North of Bismarck, North Dakota. If you are interested, leave me a comment and I'll get back to you.

Next weekend Madi and I are gonna try and make a quick trip to Brainerd, Minnesota. Our dressage instructor recently moved there to teach and his father is a world renowed dressage instructor named Wolfgang May. Kurt's father, Wolfgang will be putting on a clinic and Kurt called to invite Madi to participate. I hope I can squeeze this trip in between skiing on Friday and Jerome's eye surgery the following week. I'll keep you all posted.

So the pictures I have posted will give you a feel for what we still have on the ground and what I am dreaming about....warm, summer days and lazy horse rides on the prairie.
