    Quote:with the way the summer has been. I am expecting nothing but snow this winter:rolleyes:
    Getting new tires within a week. Snow shouldnt be too much a problem with more tread.

    I usually go out there for Equine Affair. But am thinking of skipping it this year. My horse doesnt need anything "new" and heaven knows I dont either:)

    Skipping Equine Affair??! :eek: HAHAH--I was actually thinking of not going this year too. It's gotten so expensive.

    The Poultry Congress is AWESOME. They do sell birds of all sorts. I bought a turkey last year [​IMG]
