I am in the Gulfport area right now, but it is temporary. It's rained nearly every day last week and is supposed to all next week. We still get hot, 90-100 degree sunny days, but those clouds coming off the gulf are just dumping buckets right now. Getting out to ride anywhere but a covered arena is a 50-50 chance of getting soaked to the bone lol. Its ruined the possibility of a few trail rides and night rides at this point. I'd send it north if I could!
Think of it not as a failure but as a success in how not to do it.
Don't look in a horses mouth for a gift.
