Hi Friends!

Hey and WHOA!! We just had a best time ever at our Open House and Barn Christmas Party! I had such a good time!! Our local community and friends from all over came to the party and I met sooo many wonderful folks and made tons of new friends! It was amazing! It was fun! Robin made the best Ziti!! Zena made special horse chocolates! There were vegggies, cookies, desserts, drinks and on and on! There were little people!! It was also history in the making!! And best of all too, we had Santa Claus with Peaches the North Pole Pony!

It is still a wonderment to me that our little Peaches is really BEST FRIENDS with Santa Claus!!  She was helping all our friends get their pictures taken with her and Santa! Wow that was great!!

After a little while Mom brought me in. This way I could be in the barn and watch everything from there. There was an Elf in the stalls telling me a story and we all laughed and laughed and laughed! That Elf sure knows the funnies!

Even though we were having a big time party, Junior was displaying to his student riders and visitors alike that it is important everyone know he has a solid work ethic! Time for work and time for play. Junior knows best and Dad does too.

Kristy and Porter were working on their walks, trots and canters too. Porter likes keeping busy with Kristy and keeping a careful eye on things. Kristy is always so dedicated to helping Dad and Madison with our horses.

Just before the big historic performance Mom was giving the Elf and friends some important talks on horsemanship. Even Elves are interested in horse riding skills and they have friends who are too. Mom is alway willing and happy to answer questions and give advice. She’s just so smart. Way to go Mom!

So Mom brought out our talented Carmen to get ready for the show…

Santa’s Elf helper kept a watchful eye…Carmen wanted to shake hands like Peaches, but the Elf was pretty firm and keeping to the task..

BOOM! Junior was looking for some cotton to put in his ears even..
