Stars Fim Koppur

Starmyri Stallions

Here is a short video of my two stallions, commonly referred to as the "Big" Boys! They live together from August until April, the end of breeding season until the beginning of the next.

Frosty Mornings

Here are some photos of the hoar frost from a couple days ago. It is such amazing stuff and creates such beautiful scenes. Here we are approaching the end of January, the days are definitely noticeably longer, but it sure is cold again. -29 C again this morning which is getting a bit tiresome, would be nice to go outside and be able to enjoy the sunshine instead of freezing your buns off! :-) I am feeling like it has been winter for an eternity, guess it sorta has since we got snow that stuck around the beginning of October! Plus we had no spring last year either, snow and super cold into the end of May. Sure hope it is nicer this so looking forward to long, sunny, warm days and green leaves and grass! At this point, dust is even welcome....LOL

Breeders Conference Superb

Well, what a great weekend! The Alberta Horse Breeders & Owners Conference has come and gone again for another year. It was superb as usual, my brain is over flowing with all the new information. Saw so many people, got to do tons of visiting too. So lovely to see folk that you only get to see once a year! The ApHCC booth was set up very nice and very well attended. We sold several spots for the Nez Perce Trail Ride and there was a lot of interest expressed. The ride is almost booked full already. The Confeence is such a great venue and so affordable. We even got to see the Olympic Torch and some of the Fireworks, they were spectacular.
Now, back home and normal life again! Went out to feed this morning and discovered that the moose had broken the gate to the hay yard so the mares feasted well overnight! They weren't too interested in breakfast...So, we shooed them back out and fixed the gate, appears to be no harm done.
