Probably not I'd love to, but all my horse time needs to be saddle time now, I have a clinic at the end of the month

This has not been a good winter or spring in Southern Ont. It is a late spring with lots of cold weather and now we are having rain, everything is so muddy here but at least it beats cleaning stalls with frozen manure and knocking the ice out of the water pails. I rode on Mon and got out just before the last big rain, went back to the woods, the trail was pretty wet and sloppy so heavy going for the horse. Haven't ridden since then.
Glad to hear your spring is better. Do you have the deer flies and black flies yet? By the time our trails are ok to ride on we'll be overrun with them.

Calling for +20 today, out here in sunny Alberta! Gave my mare a bath yesterday for the first time this year!
Hope everyone is doing well!

I'm battling excess run off right now. On the plus side to this, the horses are fearless at crossing water as they must go through it to get between barn and pasture.

About the deer and black fly thing, I would like to add mosquitoes to this (there was one in the barn yesterday but I got it) and I'd like to see those taken right out of the food chain, hang the ecosystem

Pretty much all the snow has melted off my mountain, maybe a pile or two of plowed snow in the shade, but it's over, finally!!! Close to +20 today, rode in a t-shirt, woohoo. I have an out of town horse show this weekend, of course that's when this nice weather is predicted to end and rain takes over, phooey.

I am not here to promote anythingNo, that's not true, I am here to promote everything equestrian and everyone enjoying horses!

A fabulous ride today in Cooking Lake - Blackfoot Park. High of 22deg, blue sky, no wind, still no mosquitos (though I have sighted a couple of dozy ones flying around our deck in the evening). A sighting of moose, the sound of millions of frogs, beaver tracks, and a swimming mouse.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

If I had been home, you could have stopped by for coffee. We are about 10 min from Blackfoot - Waskehegan staging area. Was it muddy or wet on the trails?

Lucky you!

We rode from Central staging area. Trails are pretty much dry, except for a couple of really shaded parts where it's a bit muddy still. But nothing wet and slippery.
