THE SNOW IS DRIVING ME CRAZY! IT WON'T GO AWAY!
I don't think we have even gotten a foot of snow, but first it snows a LITTLE bit. The horse I ride had shoes on.......pops a shin splint. Pull his shoes, out of work for a month. Back in work but no jumping for four more weeks, doctors orders! Now that he's back in work, had a new person come to straighten out his feet. Now he's sore! So he's going to be out again for atleast another week or untill whenever he stops looking so owchy and grouchy turned out in his field. The more recent snow we got, turns all the roads to muck to drive out to the fields. But then its gets up to 55 melts almost everything but it keeps dropping back down at night. So more ice EVERYWHERE. All the arenas are ice early in the morning and late afternoon, when the ground un-thaws enough to ride the slush is too deep to ride in because the ponies keep tripping! And then you can't even go on a trail ride, the creek you have to cross is rushing full of water, and the other side is a sheet of ice. And theres trees down all over the place! You cannot win in the winter, unless you have an indoor ):
