We got our first snow last night too. I don't have any special shoes on my horse yet since we don't usually get a good storm until January. Anyhow....my boy decided to make a few snow angels and then started tearing around the pasture bucking and farting until all 4 legs came out from under him and he slid about 20 feet like a pinch runner sliding into second base. Hopefully he didn't hurt himself. Initially he just looked embarassed. It sure was funny.
Thank-you! She is my baby :) She isn't "used" for anything in particular. Molly was my first horse years and years ago. We started off doing dressage together but neither of us could handle riding in circles inside... She has since done a little jumping for fun (By that I mean we make our own "cross country" course threw the woods) and the only thing we've competed in was speed, barrel racing and pole bending, Which is what I hope to use her son Image for. Aside from that we've done a whole lot of trail riding, she's a very high mileage mare.
Salty, I'm glad someone finally got it! Image IS Spirit if ever a horse were him... Hands down. And actually we have "Rain" right now to... (Trix)
Had our first storm on Saturday evening. Rode with three friends for 2 hours exploring new trails as this area is new to me. What a blast. These gals ride! I love the snow, noone around but us lucky ladies and our trusty steeds!
