Rant about winter training
We are having one of the worst winters here in years. We were in an official 'state of emergency' for a week the end of January. Heavy snowfall, crippling cold and blistering winds.
This winter too is especially frustrating. Last year when I had a couple young projects I boarded at a place with an indoor, and all the years before that the winters either weren't that bad and all I had was good broke older horses I could afford to pull out of the field once a month when we got a couple good days.
This h*ll of a winter I'm back home in the middle of the windiest township in the province with no indoor facilities besides a small stable, two unbroke youngsters and an older mare who's going stir crazy from lack of exercise.
We had a really nice week there last week and I was out every day and got the little ones going good, but the weather's turned again and doesn't look like it'll be anything good for a while. I was really hoping to get the little ones started before I move out west in the spring/summer, but this winter is making it impossible.
How do you guys do it? I am beyond sick and tired and ready for spring.
