Thanks for the invite Rider. But my horse trailer is buried in very deep snow, and I won't leave without my horses!

Total white out at the moment. I wonder if hubby and I will still go out for supper tonight with friends?

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

Well, at least you both are somewhere! We are half spring half winter. You know that very icy OR muddy time that comes between the transition. Like if you look outside you see 3 things. 1-snow 2-grass 3-mud OR ice.
This week it has been ice but last week it was mud ALL the way. There are random bursts of sunshine, snow, rain, and wind. One day I was riding in the arena and the wind was like Woooooooosshhh!

WHOA!! I was at the barn yesterday and there was maybe 4 inches of snow there and I was picking out her hooves and she wasn't even standing on her hooves she was standing on like an inch of snow and ice that was jampacked into her feet and under her shoes!!! She could hardly even pick up her foot for me to pick it out I had to hold it there and it was so heavy!!
Would that hurt her? It would wouldn't it? this was my first winter around horses so I'm still curious about such things and stuff.

Sorry but I don't know if that would hurt her. I dont think it would because they used to live outside on all that snow and stuff in the wild. So I think they are protected. Have you heard of snow pads? They are supposed to protect the hooves from the ice and snow. Don't trust me on the situation because I am not certain. But try and find some snow pads.

Well, I hope you like the snow while it lasts! Soon you will be where I am. Stuck in mud and ice...or frozen mud.

Yeah I'm sure Cheyenne's owner would've gotten snow pads, but she just doesn't have the money at this moment. With one of her horses ill and then her colt may be going blind AND his injury is now set back a few months because he chewed on it!! So yeah she just doesn't have the money right now. I would, but I know absolutely nothing about it so.
Enjoy the snow? Ahh... it would have to be enough snow that school is closed. It's pouring rain (and when I say pouring I mean my hair was drenched even when I sprinted to the car after school!) so the snow won't last anyways. It's been on and off all winter.

HeHeHe! I know right! Apparently, if you run you get more wet than if you walk :p One of my sisters random facts of knowledge. You have that much snow and your school STILL isn't closed? Our school closes as soon as the media says its gonna be a big one :) Have you gotten to the icy muddy part yet or no? I hate it :(
