I rode today, got snowed on a little bit, but the footing in the arena is quite good. Not enough time to ride both horses or venture out on the road. Tomorrow your auger or trailer will be free and tomorrow I have a day off work, you will ride, I will ride both horses and go on the road. Lets see if that works out for us.....

I didn't ride today because my horse needed a day off

We board our horses so my mom has to drive me and my horse stuff over there. She never goes when it snows or rains or looks like it might. I would love to ride all day everyday no matter what the weather....just as soon as I can drive.

The auger has been moved, temps due to drop back down tonight, so will try again tomorrow

So YOU"RE the one who keeps taking it all!

Actually, I had to take delivery of some beautiful green hay today myself. It's so scarce right now I have to beat people off with a stick! Luckily I had it under contract before it was ever baled last year.

Jake and Dai- I'm green. Just green!

I didn't ride today because we have a blizzard outside, and at least 2 to 3 feet of new snow.

We had company all weekend. Friends from Portland and my nephew from San Francisco. As one left, another arrived.

LOL, yes, that would be me. We've made five trips (75 bales/trip) this winter, and hopefully this is the last! For the first two trips, we traveled 9 hours round trip to our family's dairy farm, but the last three have just been 4 hours round trip to Edinboro. Much easier.

I didn't ride today because mind your own business!

I did actually ride today. But a lot of my excuses are because "its cold" or "I don't have gas to get to the barn". Which, in my opinion, translates to "I didn't want to, buzz off".

A legit excuse is "I have my daughter". I rarely go to the barn when she's with me, I'd rather spend that time with her, not my horse. I will be re-enrolling her in lessons soon though so I can go to the barn when I have her and we'll still be together.
