    Happy thanksgiving!

    Happy thanksgiving from Canada!! We had a few of the residents at the ranch who brought some family and friends for the weekend. They put on a huge turkey dinner and invited the volunteer crew to join them. Wow...what a feast!! There was about 30 of us and we had 3 turkeys, a ham and all the trimmings! Myself and another of the volunteers made (way too much!) dessert! Needless to say we’ll be eating leftovers for days!

    We also went to an Indian Reserve to watch their annual round up. Every thanksgiving weekend, they roundup as many of the wild horses as they can to separate them and brand the new foals amongst a few other things. They have over 500 wild horses on their land and were out for 2 whole days trying to find them and bring them in. They didn’t get nearly all of them but there was still a fair amount. It was hard to watch some aspects of it, but it was also interesting to be welcomed and be a part of this tradition.

    We’ve ended our thanksgiving weekend with some drinks and music around the campfire.
