We woke up to a fresh layer of snow on the ground and 27 degrees. Mark helped move 2 new bales in the middle paddock, one in Lily's paddock and the small round bale into the weanling paddock all before breakfast. Rhoda & Karin arrived early, while in visiting Diane came over followed by Mike a few minutes later. This was a great time to discuss the training of Ayanna and Indy. Steven arrived during our meeting, got the boys out and called to report while riding Valiant, he asked Even to bow, lay down and sit with 100% success. Olympia's owner arrived as Steven was putting the boys away so he jumped in to help halter Olympia for Dee. Karin and Rhoda came out and helped clean the stalls then went into the indoor to start training while waiting for Mike to arrive with his 4 wheel drive truck for the trip to Sandridge State Forrest. Today they took Eliza for Karin, Jenis for Mike and Rhoda got the privilege of riding Ayanna for her very first trail ride EVER. They pulled away just as our next visitor arrived. Amy Klein and her husband Russel arrived to meet the dogs. Amy is considering a Mastiff in her future and wanted to meet the dogs and learn everything she could about them.
