In your horse life- what is your favorite time of year?

What is your favorite time of year to spend with your horses??

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.

Winter :). There is just something about the smell of wood burning and a fuzzy horse with oatmeal cookie breath! Riding in the snow... Running your fingers through the warm fuzziness that is a horse, and snuggling your face in their fur!

Whenever I think about having my own horse (which is pretty much all the time!), I think winter would be the most fun too! Yeah, it's probably more work but being in the barn while it's snowing, riding on christmas eve..... Gives me shivers of excitement!!

My fav is spring/summer! I have a horse that enjoys getting hot in the cooler months, and lets just say being thrown around like a rag doll isn't my favorite winter activity! But if I had a bit of a cooler horse (and a warmer, non-michigan, state) I might say winter would be a fun season for riding!

I love to ride in the winter. I love riding in the snow and something about horses always makes me warmer.

Any time when it's not cold. I dread winter. My horses are wired up like squirrels from November to April and I can't get a thing done with them. Plus I hate chipping out ice from the water buckets and doing chores when the wind chill is 20 below.

I'm with you Jessabel! Hauling water, breaking ice, freezing my a**, no thanks. As far as riding goes, I used to enjoy winter, but our winters have changed here the past several years. Too much ice not enough snow.

So, my favorite time of the year with my horses is probably late summer early fall. Not hot, little to no bugs and love the crunch of leaves under their hooves. Love the crisp air in the mornings, but it's not freezing.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".
