Well, plus 20 is to cold for me! At minus 20 I'd be like one of those standup cardboard posters in the saddle. Whoa, that would be fun, not. On the other hand, 100+ is no problem. When it is nice weather I would say the days between "hard" are easy enough that she doesn't need a full day off - although she gets them often enough b/c things "come up". If all I have time for is 30 minutes in the saddle, then 30 minutes it is...hardly worth tacking up for, but it keeps her "oiled".:) ... but not taxing enough to need to "recover from" and warrant a day off.:)
I sincerely wish I could handle cold temps b/c there are no bugs and no snakes! Heaven on earth! But I can't handle it at all, so we do ground work on the "warmer cold" days until I can't feel my fingers w gloves on. If it is cold and windy....its just feeding and cleaning for me!
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
