    Boy, was it a cold ride yesterday.

    I couldn't stand it anymore. I had to go for a ride yesterday even though the temps were in the single digits with near zero wind chill. I finally visited with my dad about his old show chaps that have been hanging in the tack room for about 10 years and he let me alter them to fit me. It is amazing how much difference they can make. Even with it being so cold, I was out for a little over 2 hours and the only things that ended up cold were my toes and my face. It was too cold to do much of anything except kinda plod around but we had fun. I am very thankful that my horses ride bitless because I would have felt bad putting metal in his mouth, even after warming it first. Without further ado,







    And just a quick video. Sorry for the wonky camera angle. I really thought the chute that I sat it on was level........guess not. But there is nothing that I love more than a good travelling ranch horse.

    Brave Lady. It's 0* here this morning and I'll let the the horses stand around and eat. And yes leather chaps, especially the shotgun chaps really stop the wind and help keep your legs warm

    Looks like fun! Too cold to ride here right now (-10 before the wind), but the first warmer day I get we're going out! Can't wait!

    Nothing makes me feel more tired than riding a horse that doesn't step out all day. I love a horse with a big walk that can keep it up all day. I usually think of mustangs as a waste of feed but I believe that both of yours would fit nicely under my saddle.

    You're braver (and younger) than me! I don't or can't ride or spend too much time outside when its really cold. Between the arthritis and the Raynaud's my hands can't take it. I need to move to south Texas!

    Good on you!

    We still have around 2 feet of snow on the ground over here with temps in the single digits. D: And another storm on the way...my kingdom for an indoor arena, lol.

    Dobe is very handsome, I love mustangs.

    Glad you could keep yourself semi-warm while out there riding! By the way, the chaps look great on you.
