I can't be the only one who gets weird reasons why they didn't ride.
After a winter of record snowfalls, and biting cold, I could only ride when I could haul out, which wasn't that often because the roads were often crappy and the forecast bad, I have been longing for spring. Trouble is spring has been cancelled this year, so winter is kindly hanging around to make sure that we don't run out of weather
I decided today to beat the system, get up early and ride when the place is a frozen mess of ridged mud and sheets of frozen ice, which although is a crappy option, is a whole lot better than waiting until it thaws and the place is a sea of slimy black very slippery mud. I managed to drag myself out of bed, out into the Arctic waste, catch Emmy, went to tack up and WHOOPS, problem. You see since I got the trailer with a tack space most of my tack lives in there, so much less hassle that keep load and unloading, but there was an issue, can you what it is yet?
Some smart person *COUGH* DH, moved the auger while he was clearing snow and trying to level the yard, he must of moved it while the ground was soft, and the end had sunk in, and then frozen hard. So until I can get either the trailer or the auger shifted, in hand work it is. She was a star at that BTW
Come on, I want to hear your why I didn't ride today.
