The Day after the food coma.. More elves crashed in the New shop,  hanging from the lifts and cord reel drops. Overdosed on peppermint schnapps and stuffed with Christmas cookies. They all passed out in a spiritual nirvana. The Ponies were rubbing the tires on the curbs and doing donuts in the snow. One cowboy with a Hoonigan sticker was catching long drifts while circling the ranch driveway..  All was as it should be, and the echoes of the Big Man were still ringing in the stable and bunkhouse.
 A spiritual renaissance for all the riders and glee for the ponies as they rec'd the new fluids in the shop.. New Years was looming and the ponies were a grooming..
 Silent and holy night indeed ,for all the residents of the Ranch..

Ahh the New Year Cometh..
 The Young Colts are kickin the hooves of change, but the alpha Stallion gives no room in the Stable. Change will come, and the stable master will keep the peace in the ranch. The elves left on a hay wagon with a Hangover cure strapped in a barrel to the tailgate. Their job done for now, and the Bunkhouse is alive with New Years expectations from the Hands.
 A semi pulls into the driveway.. The forklift powers up and the renaissance begins..

The frozen dawn greets a New Year, crackling are the sounds of ponies on the gravel driveway. A rustle in the hay signals the ranch is coming to life. Vapor rises as the stablemaster pours the first bucket of Wash soap. The stove heats yet another pot of Coffee. All the signs that renewal can be just a few months away, and the shop lights flicker as the ballasts surge with current.
 Time is moving, but the still of the day's dawn appears suspended, a pause of infinite consequence. Another opportunity for the herd to gather and storm the prairie awaits, and the gates will be opened for the restless ponies again. So as the sky warms the roads of life, may your rides be long ,exhilarating, and safe.
 Be wary, the feed truck comes this week , and the manure spreader is under repair :D

 Pintosopher, Scribe to yet another tale of equine nirvana, gear changes at your pleasure ;)

The Skies are in flux, temps driving the ponies to huddle in the stable, windows hazed over cold due
 All will be quiet, and the chimneys puff wood combustion, the costs we rue
 The burp of an air gun has bounced the silence, wheels removed for Snow tire replacement
 The cold on the kneecaps , is proof of cement
The clink of chains signals traction must be sought
 And there's Pizza  for dinner, ready to be bought
 The stars will gleam and the chill resurged
 All the horses warm and the stall manure  be purged
 Riders in the bunkhouse, we'll watch for their presence
 The Suds will coat the tables, with cheery effervescence.
 Pintosopher, Cookin Humor by the hour ;)

 Fog has settled in the Valley,
 All quiet on a Sunday morn
 Stableman counts the ponies, ever looking at the tally
 A rustle in the back, as a newbie lights up
 More coffee in the hand's morning cup
 It'll be a mid January story, as the country tries to thaw
 More cold is coming though, and the wind will be raw
 The parade of lights has lit up the stalls,
 Trickle chargers glow, and heat up the walls
 A burp of the coffee signals a new day,
 The bunkhouse hands , have Gran Turismo to play

 Pintosopher.. Pickled this season, but sober as a Judge eating fudge

Another frigid one and the riders are restless, ponies kickin the stalls... The stove roaring to heat the barn, many ideas circulating the rumor of a stampede in the Snow. The ranch foreman has ordered the Best in Rally rubber and the tire guy is siping the tread blocks for added traction.
 Oversize flaps to protect the metal, and skid plates brought down from the loft, the rumor becomes reality. Compressors light up and the off road wheels are being mounted with fresh Grippy tires. Soon a pile of tractive rotating devices to be installed, are in the lift area.  The burp of Air guns and it begins to sound positively NASCAR in the main stable.
 The snarl of Rally engines and smell of race fuel has filled the driveway, and the snow drifting begins. Roostertails pummel the windows of the Bunkhouse, and Heavy accents dominate the conversations. the main gate is open and the Haldas are reset for a Stage Stampede! Over a hundred miles of juice to burn up in sideways nirvana, the world is complete.. ;D

Yes, turn 6 Riverside Raceway. My favorite spot to sit. I think Dan is in turn six at this point in the picture, it's been a while.

Temps are Dippin' , the riders are Trippin', tires will be slippin' as the winter cycles through the ranch and the valley
 In the Barn , the ponies are being groomed and prepped for the first signs of  spring. All things possible, but the reality of frost is ever present.
 An new stove arrives and now the Barn heats up with Pellets and a fresh layer of tiles to keep the Hooves off the slab.
 Another Service cart from a now defunct racing team rolls on the floor, moving to it's new home in the center of the barn. Loaded with Tools to keep the Hands busy in their maintenance of the Ponies, the gleam of new plating and Blued tempered steel has them mesmerized in awe.
 The Cook hits the triangle and calls the crew to breakfast, the smell of Waffles , fresh Bacon & Eggs and Coffee is intoxicating. Cool, dry weather, means a busy morning, as the next storm arrives on Sunday.
 USPS will be bring more parts and the future looks bright for the Shop Hare, a perpetual occupant in it's hutch in the back stall.
 All quiet, for a weekend .. The hands will feast and plan the week.. ;)

Another Winter Weekend, More flakes are falling in some land on the prairie ..
 We'll be watching as the ranch hands welcome the Racing season, new motivations to prep the ponies for a season of optimism. The benches are full of new tools and the crates of parts are awaiting the talents of the stable masters everywhere. The load of barrels of solvents and the other sundries are on pallets in the back of the barn. Coffee brewing on the Bench, and a few Service manuals open to the science of the fuel mix. Knowledge will pour like an expresso into the hands of the motivated, work shall be done.
 Time for planning trickles in while the Tube dispenses Rolex updates, the Barn is in Zen mode, all is well.

 A Sense of indignation roils across the Bunk House. The ranch is under assault with ever present Weather challenges, and the Ponies and the Hands are more than irritated. With the diversion of the racing world Speed weeks past, Now the anticipation for the pounding of the hooves across the prairie is kicking at the stalls. The use of the GranTurismo is reaching overload, Sneers have been traded as the attempts to dominate the terminals, leads to wry looks and more than a few cars taken to the lifts to burn off steam..
 Soon the signs of spring will be ever present, Life will stage burnouts everywhere, the spirits of motorheads past will descend on the populace.. Serene driving style will follow and show circuits will begin..
 Send the Pair o Dux out into the weather, the stable is for ponies , high and Dry 8)
