    Haha, yeah, it's good to have someone that understands. We can start a club ;) And how can you not love the horse fuzzies that come with cold weather? Too cute.

    Totally! Haha and its just fun to see horses in snow! So playful, majestic, and amazing creatures but snow itself makes me happy as well. I will always be a cold weather lover. ;)

    I love the cold. I can put more layers on, but can only take so many off before they start calling the police and the situation gets really ugly.. Literally! Lol

    But... As i'm getting (gotten) older, and my rheumatoid arthritis.. The cold doesn't like me

    That is exactly my logic!

    I have a hard time with arthritis too - in my hip and hands. Hands from typing too many years, hip from getting bucked off a 4 yr old I was breaking a few years ago. Come to think of it, no matter what time of year or what season it is, I still hobble around for the first 10 minutes when I get up in the morning with aches and pains in every joint. I think horses have a lot to do with that - they can be pretty hard on the body after so many years of working with them

    With as much stuff that has to be done around here on a regular basis and I work out three times a week - they say exercise is supposed to chase the joint aches and general stiffness away but I think 'THEY' lied - whoever THEY is. It might keep the weight off, but what is the purpose of it all if you are in a constant state of ache/pain/hobble/teeter as you move around the house? It probably doesn't help that I can reach over and touch the top of the hill with my big toe, either.

    Same logic here! Can't take off your skin either, but can always add another layer. Love horses in snow and just snow itself. And all the other goodies that come with it. Including food and scents...

    Good memories on when I was younger and the place I helped out at took us out horse-sledding (didn't have a sleigh, so used a sled). So much fun! Especially when the pony decided it was enough and dumped us in the snow-filled ditch... Ah, memories :)

    Can someone in Louisiana join in? I live on Toledo Bend Lake - my horse and I can see Texas from our front porches!

    When I was a kid, the minute it started to snow, I was on horseback! I'm a fair weather rider now.
