February Snow

Some people may laugh at what we call snow around here, but this is our version and what I woke up to this morning--a whole inch! I think every other part of Western Washington has more snow than us right now. Oh well. Snow is unusual in February.

First of the Aspen Farms Event Derby Series

Today we went to the first of the Aspen Farms Event Derby Series and took Brico, Hux, and Specks. All three were stars! As you can see below, Hux clearly thinks he is.

Specks started out a little chargey in his first round at Beg. Novice but wasn't looky or spooky about the fences. He and Patti did a second round to work on control, and he settled right down and listened nicely. Their Beg. Novice class had 20+ people in it and because of their fast first round they placed third. Not a bad way to start the season off! Congratulations Patti and Specks; you guys have come a long way in a short time.
