Got George out today, despite chilly temps (23 when I left the barn) and snow falling from the sky. Well, really the snow was blowing sideways more than falling, which made for a great facial any time we were facing into the wind.
But tomorrow and Wednesday the highs are only supposed to be in the teens, then "semi-significant" snow is coming (afraid to ask what that means in this area
), so I figured I better take advantage of the weather while I could.
Ground is frozen solid, which is somewhat of an improvement over muddy mess, but still isn't much fun to navigate. The snow being gone means the rocks are exposed, so had to take things slow and steady. Horses get shod on Thursday, just in time for the rocks to vanish under the snow again (go figure!).
