Before I came home I was up at the lodge, and boy o' boy was the snow melting! This might sound a little weird, but I haven't seen dirt up there in a while. I'm excited for the snow to melt because I really want to get a horse up there so I can ride. I just hope that the snowpack holds so we have some moisture this summer. It not, it's gonna be another dry one!

I also got some riding in while I was checking fences. Both Quin and Window got super sweaty, but I hope this will get them ready for summer time. If nothing else, it is helping them shed some of their winter hair!

Wow... I forgot what happens when I don't blog. So much to catch up on! My mom sent me this recipe for a "different" sort of ice cream. It's super creamy and rich and I actually really like it. I just have to make sure I don't count calories. If you want to try it yourself here is the recipe I made. Originally from here.
