Greentree, no wonder you never lack for something to do with a herd that size!! Next time you are bored (ha!), I would love to see pics of everyone.
Foxtail, those are beautiful pictures. I assume you are in southern Oregon if you ride in places that used to be japanese camps? Glad to hear your mare is appreciating the bosal. Also good to have her teeth checked, as it sounds like something is going on to make her resent her old bridle.
Any, can you tell me your secret when it comes to getting ride of all that snow and leaving behind lovely, dry footing?! I am so very jealous!!
well snow is finally melting so I thought we could get a little ride in...made it to the trails and they were just icy slushie snow mess.
This was me today. Got on Dream and didn't get very far before realizing the thaw yesterday and the re-freeze overnight and the thaw today left the path a crazy combination of nasty icy crust on top, icy layer on the bottom, and heavy slush in between. So instead of being able to ride on this lovely day (its 50F here today.. FIFTY!!), I am inside the house cleaning (and pouting).
Weather is only going to get weirder, with warm temps and an inch of rain expected tomorrow, then temps start the downward spiral with highs only in the 20s expected by Monday. Oh, and maybe another "substantial snowstorm" late next week. Hopefully that storm thing is only media hysteria. So. Over. It.
