Hubby got the skidoo out yesterday and packed a track around the property so I can cross country ski. The track is just short of 1km. I did make one lap around, but came in because the dog was too cold, even in his winter jacket. Next, he took the my son and his friend out tobogganing behind the skidoo. The kids had great fun, but again, were only good for a couple of rounds at a time without coming in to warm up.
Later in the afternoon, I got out for a short bareback ride though the neighbours field on my old guy Sam. With his extra thick winter coat, he didn't seem to mind. Despite the snow, the footing out here wasn't too bad.
Once I get over the initial shock of plowing, shovelling and shivering, I have to say that I do enjoy playing outside in the winter.
