Well after the blizzard-like conditions last weekend, we have some permanent snow on the ground.
I hadn't even been out to my horses since before the blizzard (my boarders take great care of them though, no worries!) so it was great to get out there this morning on my morning off! The breeze was a little chilly, but otherwise a pretty gorgeous winter morning!
Walking through snow is a good workout for Red because he tends to be naughty when he's not ridden every day. And with it dark outside at 5 PM, he doesn't get ridden on weekdays. The knee-deep snow in the ditch makes it awful tiring to be naughty!
We went about 2 1/2 miles, mostly walking ... err, trudging!
Tacked up in the barn and ready to head out!
Hanging out with his cooler sheet after our ride. Thankfully, he didn't act up too much and didn't get too sweaty!!
Today I discovered that I LOVE wool socks and I LOVE the horse riding snowpants I bought off of Horze.com I kept nice and warm!
And just snapped a couple of my little yearling (okay, not so little ... he's gonna be BIG) Shotgun. I messed with him on some groundwork while I let Red finish cooling off before I turned him loose.
