    Painted: ahhh makes sense! Those pictures are spectacular...hard to put it all in perspective. I agree, today it was 25 here and I was psyched to be outside with snow in my boots for hours! Hahah....it IS amazing how nice 25 can feel when you've had some cold windy days!

    Awesome! That's really cool. I went riding yesterday as well. It was really nice out. Like 20 maybe warmer and I actually saddled up. Gizmo saw lots of snowmobiles for the first time and just stood there and watched them like a champ. Though he was a little worried when he could hear them off in the distance revving up, and its actually really annoying. If that wasn't there it would have been a really peaceful ride.

    It's freezing cold in Austria too. But still, I go out for trail rides. I always go riding, no matter what weather. (:

    But I kinda like winter, cause when you really have much snow, it's so much fun to gallop through the snow. I just love it.! <3 (:

    It was frigid cold here today, I was planning on going out to ride but was informed that my old draft horse didn't survive the night. So I had to deal with that, and won't be able to ride until Friday. But it looks like it should warm up a bit before this weekend. Painted, was your buffalo hunt on the Henry Mountains? I have some points gathered, it doesn't look like I will get it this year, but I pray every year I win the lottery for that hunt.

    I haven't ridden my horses since novemeber 29th when my training moved back to Michigan, I had hurt my wrist and had trouble getting on, then it was too cold, and now it's been so long I want to lunge her before getting on, but it's hard to lunge when there is 3 feet of snow in the round pen, but I have ridden, I recently started ridding lessons(about time, I'm only 25 and have been riding since I was 12 lmao), so the past 2 Tuesdays I've ridden, but my lesson today was canceled because of the weather

    This pic. Was today........and they are predicting 12"-16"+ tonite and tomorrow. Just keeps piling up....on top of my woodpile. Burning wood definitely heats you more than once

    Just need to make some time to ride.

    Ugh, we are in the same predicament. We are expected to get 18-24 inches tomorrow. Its supposed to fall 3 inches and hour, it blows! We already have a foot and a half to two feet on the ground already. I now have to have my uncle come out with the tractor and move snow around my barn because Gizmo won't be able to get out, and that's sad because he is almost 16hh! It will be past his chest! Too hard to move in.

    Well, we finally got to ride around the homestead. About 30 degrees, sunny, not much wind. Quite nice except the sun caused just enough melting on the hills to make them slippery. We walked up part of one where the horses were really struggling.

    We went up to the fence line around the crown of the Butte then worked our was along the west end--except to get past the gully we had had to go about half way back down, then back up. Sigh. We're looking for a gate in the fence so we can ride the crown but still haven't found one.

    I did learn something useful today. Mr. Big doesn't like open fields. He does MUCH better in the trees. Not sure what's going on there. Anyone have any ideas? He's very slow and cautious in the open and goes lickity split in the trees. Up, down, sideways, doesn't seem to matter: he does it better in the trees.

    Overall: a very nice ride, indeed!
